Can I: Buy a Phone with Positive Tab, with Activation Credit Bonus, and Cancel the Plan Immediately?

I have a positive tab balance of $150. I'd like to use it to purchase a travel phone. Looking online, many of the phones include an "Activation Credit" if you sign up for a minimum plan. Is there a minimum commitment to that plan, and if so, how long is that commitment? What happens if you cancel early? If possible, I'd like to purchase a phone using a combination of activation credit and positive tab, so that I have no outstanding balance, and then cancel the plan immediately. The activation credit part sounds a bit too good to be true though?

Any.gifts ($100.gift, etc.) that come with the phone you don't receive until after 90 days anyways. If you get the phone on a tab you have to wait 90 days to keep the activation credits. If you cancel before the 90 days you will get charged the full price of the phone.

Yes, you can cancel at anytime.

Relating to the activation credits & 90days: If your contract has that clause, you will have to payback all the.gift and credits. If you don't see it, you don't have to pay back.
