Can you buy the Surface Duo 2 on contract?
The Surface Duo 2’s premium price makes buying the phone on contract an appealing alternative, but no network is stocking the phone in the US or UK.
EE did have the 128GB available for around a year in the UK, but it’s been removed from the site. No carriers have ever made the Duo 2 available in the US.
But while you can’t buy the device on contract, unlocked versions will work with all of the usual networks.

8GB RAM, 128GB storage – $1,499.99/£1,349
8GB RAM, 256GB storage – $1,599.99/£1,429
