The device us now due October 30th and will cost nothing if users sign up for a 40 (nearly $70) per month Combi or Flext voice and data plan, though the length of the term hasn't been specified.

The plans differ in the amount of talk time and text messaging while offering the same unlimited though confined to fair usage rules web browsing. In addition, Combi gives users 800 minutes of talk time and unlimited text message, with Flext offering 1,250 minutes and 2,500 text messages or a combination of either.
