Deeanna, it all depends on the plan you choose and the phone you want.

Tab S - $150 off the full price of phone
Tab M - $300 off the full price of phone. $5 added to your bill monthly for 24 months.
Tab L - $500 off the full price of phone, with plan requirements. (min $70+$10 tab charge)

We'll use the Note 4 as an example. Full price is $800. If you choose the $40 plan and use tab M, the cost of the phone would be $500 (800-300). Plus, your monthly bill would be $40+$5 (tab charge)+tax.

But no, if your tab cannot cover the full cost of the phone, you MUST pay for it upfront and you cannot be billed later for it.

Your sister probably got a cheap phone and that's why didn't have to pay anything upfront.
