The device has launched at Yahoo Mobile and Visible with promotional switcher offers that differ between each provider.

Visible is also including a free Amazon Fire TV Stick worth up to $39.99. The offers are stackable, so if you switch to Visible and buy the phone you'll get both items. The Amazon Fire TV Stick offer can be redeemed immediately after activating service.
Yahoo Mobile switchers on the other hand will get a $200 Prepaid Mastercard Virtual Account. Customers must remain subscribed to Yahoo Mobile for 2-months to redeem the offer. There are no other promotional offers available through Yahoo Mobile.
