Update/correction, I had an email with 3 lines and they were all eligible for unlocking, so I would be wrong there.
It's good to know that the phone doesn't need to be physically turned on and activated, it's enough to activate it online or over the phone with a pin. Unlocking is only in the actual phone though.

Same here I was only able to unlock 1 out of 3 phones after 60 days.

The automatic eligibility check says I'm not eligible, anyone had success by calling them ? Any other options ?

After redeeming reward points to purchase a month of service, will it automatically not bill next month (the billing date is in 25 days) or is there something we need to do?
Thanks.

from my experience about a year ago, I had to pause auto-pay in order for them to apply the free month.
Workflowy. You won't know what you're missing until you try it.

Yes you'll need to turn off auto pay. Or you'll be billed even though you added a month.

Indeed that's correct.

We found the option to turn off autopay, but it seems like turning it off deactivates the service.
Also, the rewards activity page just says that we redeemed a free month of service but there's no code or confirmation number. How would that get added to the account?
Any help would be appreciated.
Thanks.

Should be. Unless it states unlocked.

Your service expiration date was most probably extended from what it showed previously.

I am just concerned about buying something that turns out to need a year. Anyone know?

Not sure what you mean.
Nothing changed with our service expiration date and we were already billed for a month of service after redeeming rewards for a free month.

Put the right number in? you sure the expiration date wasn't pushed a month later?

There was nowhere to enter a number.
The expiration date was pushed a month later.
We'll monitor the next billing date to see if they'll bill the CC again or autopay needs to be turned off.

If you expiration date was pushed a month later the free months won't kick in. You can redeem all your free months so you don't get charged. But as long as autopay was or is active your free months won't take effect. And just keep on extending the expiration date.
 Good luck.
 Just turn off your AP if you want to use the free months.
