Your rebate can come from the cell phone manufacturer, service provider, or third-party retailer. Either way, you likely will need to sign up for at least a year, sometimes two years, to get the promised rebate.
You do not need to sign a new contract if you don't want a rebate on a cell phone. You can stay month to month with any provider and pay full price for your next phone.
