Reasons for the off-contract status

There are multiple reasons why a device would enter this status:

  • Its subscriptions has expired and the device was unable to renew it since the contract it was using is depleted/oudated
  • Its renewal was not authorized (see the Subscription automatic renewal article for more information)
  • It was suspended and tried communicating (see the Suspend/resume article for more information)
  • It was used in a replacement (see the Replace a device article for more information)

How to exit the off-contract status

In order to exit the off-contract status, you have to use the Restart feature (see the dedicated article for more details).
