Comcast's new virtual carrier, Xfinity Mobile, is growing leaps and bounds, piggybacking on Verizon's network, and has already amassed 200,000 subscribers with enticing plans for its cable TV and Internet users that can lead up to just $45 a month for unlimited talk, text and data, if you are on the premium packages. As if to solidify the good first impressions by its foray into mobile, Xfinity is gearing up to offer none other than the iPhone X, and with the sweetest deal on Apple's greatest so far to boot.
Starting this Friday, October 27th, when the iPhone X preorders go live, new Xfinity customers who switch and sign up for the triple package with Internet, TV and a mobile subscription plan will get a whopping $500 gift card to ease the pain of transitioning. The deal will run from now until December 3, and, given that the Triple Play packages start off at $89.99, is pretty good if you are up for a contract renewal with your cable provider. Comcast's mobile data plans are "By the Gig" at $12/GB, so you only pay what you use, or you can go "unlimited" for $45/month (deprioritization kicks in after 20 GB).
You need to sign up for a two-year cable contract, purchase a handset - in this case the iPhone X - and port your existing number, then Xfinity will mail a $500 Visa Debit card to your subscription address. Sweet, and the best deal on an iPhone X we've encountered so far, especially if you were planning to swap providers anyway. Needless to say, you can also trade in your old iPhone, and, after its appraisal at an Xfinity store, tack the money you will get for it onto the cost of the iPhone X, too, so you might end up getting Apple's finest for just two or three Benjamins, depending on what you trade for it.

“The iPhone X is an iconic device that will deliver the kinds of futuristic experiences – from augmented reality to 3D gaming – that modern mobile users are seeking,” said Billy Stephens, vice president of wireless devices for Xfinity Mobile. “Combining iPhone X with millions of Wi-Fi hotspots in the Xfinity Mobile network will allow our customers to push the limits of what’s possible on a mobile phone without having to constantly worry about how much LTE data they are using.”
iPhone X features a gorgeous all-glass and stainless steel design with a beautiful 5.8-inch Super Retina display, A11 Bionic chip with neural engine for powerful machine learning, augmented reality and immersive 3D gaming experiences, wireless charging and Face ID, delivering an innovative and secure new way to unlock, authenticate and pay. The TrueDepth camera that enables Face ID brings Portrait mode with Portrait Lighting to the front camera for beautiful selfies with a depth-of-field effect and enables Animoji, which captures and analyzes over 50 different facial muscle movements to bring emoji to life in a fun new way. A redesigned rear camera with dual optical image stabilization includes a new color filter, deeper pixels, an improved Apple-designed image signal processor and features Portrait mode with Portrait Lighting allowing customers to capture stunning photos and videos. The all-glass front and back on iPhone X feature the most durable glass ever in a smartphone in two beautiful finishes, silver and space gray.
Xfinity Mobile, which is available nationwide in all of Comcast’s service areas, combines the nation's largest and most reliable 4G LTE network with the largest Wi-Fi network of more than 18 million hotspots across the country. It’s available to all Xfinity Internet customers, and includes up to five lines with unlimited nationwide talk and text, no line access fees, and 100 MB of shared data.
Xfinity Mobile customers can choose from two straightforward data options – “By the Gig” for $12 per GB of shared data across all lines on their account per month, or Unlimited for $45 per month, per line. With Xfinity Mobile, customers only pay for the data they use. When paying by the gigabyte, they can “switch and save” by changing to Unlimited anytime during their billing cycle. They can also “mix and match” By the Gig and Unlimited on an account so each individual has a data option that makes sense for them.
