How do the tabs work? If I get a phone for $0 on a Tab Medium plan, do I pay extra monthly for the phone? How long does that lock me in before the device is paid off?

yes you pay the monthly tab amount added to your plan price each month for 24 moths at the rate specified under the tab choice of the device in the webstore

Thanks for the info. The Essential Phone looks good right now. Not sure about their future though.

Make sure you call ahead to see if the store you want to visit has stock of the Essential PhONE -- stock is quite limited in most locations.

The phone is very nice to look at and has great hardware. They just put it out way too early before everything worked properly. Now their future doesnt look very bright at all.
