What is Monthly Support?

A service for discounting a fixed amount determined separately for each model off your usage charges each month for a maximum of 24 months counting the month after the month of purchase as the first month.

Charges Applicable to Discount

The discount is deducted from the total amount for Xi/FOMA basic monthly charges, domestic dialing charges, packet flat-rate charges, and optional service usage charges (except for some). If the total amount is less than the discount amount, the amount applicable for discount that month will be treated as the upper limit for discount. (Discount will not be carried over to the next month.)

  • Usage charges for services other than Xi or FOMA, installment payments, content usage charges/i-mode information charges, dmarket (monthly charge and other charges for dTV), Mobile Device Protection & Delivery Service/Mobile Device Protection Service monthly charge, international call and communications charges, charges for calls and communications made overseas (WORLD WING), universal service charges, and other charges are not applicable for the discount.
  • If the total amount of the charges applicable for the discount of the sub lines of the share group is less than the discount amount of Monthly Support, the rest of the discount amount is discounted from the charges applicable for the discount of the representative line of the share group. (Discount will not be carried over to the next month.)
