T-Mobile marketing executive Andrew Sherrard confirmed the policy to CNET on Sunday. He noted that not every person qualifies for the equipment installer plan, and that even individuals wanting a smartphone under such a plan have to pass a credit check. He said the company is working to make matters clearer in its communication on its Web site and with its sales staff.

"As we go forward, we'll work on the execution issues."Clarification at 7:43 p.m. PT: Story updated to focus on the requirement to sign up for a $20 plan for customers wanting to pay for the tablet in monthly installments.
