Bellevue, Washington -- July 12, 2016 --Today, T-Mobile (NASDAQ: TMUS) proved once again why it's the Un-carrier, giving everyone a huge financial break from the carriers' higher and higher wireless prices. Starting tomorrow July 13, the Un-carrier is kicking off its biggest and best deal ever. Every existing or new Simple Choice customer who gets 6GB or 10GB can walk away with a brand new Samsung Galaxy smartphone on us. Yea, you heard that right. A new Samsung Galaxy smartphone for everyone in the family on us - up to 12 people and 12 smartphones!k

Plus, with this epic deal, families can get 4 lines with up to 6GB of LTE data per line - 24GB total - for just $30 a line per month. Adding a line is just $20 more per month. And, absolutely everyone in the family can get a brand new Samsung Galaxy On5 - which normally sells for $140 - after monthly service credits during 24-month no-cost finance agreement. That means, you'll see a credit for the cost of the free phone on your monthly wireless bill, and after 24 months, you'll have paid nothing for the phone, except sales tax, and will owe nothing more.
If you purchase something through a post on our site, Slickdeals may get a small share of the sale.

The phone is "free" via monthly credit for 24 months, that means that if you leave before the 2 years then the phone is not free because you won't get the rest of the monthly credits, if it sounds familiar is because it's just like a 2-year contract where you have to pay ETF if you leave before the end of the contract...

T-Mobile apparently just invented a contract without contract.


It's worse than without a contract because you're paying contract prices (that subsidize the cost of the phone) plus the cost of the phone.



^ Three people who don't understand how this works and passing misinformation. This NOT a contract because there is no subsidy, its a BILL CREDIT. If you bought ANY phone full price you'd still pay EIP monthly (financing) just like every carrier. The credit eliminates the EIP in exchange for remaining a customer for 24 months. You'd owe the full amount if you were financing any other phone too or if you left early. Nothing different here except you really are getting a free phone as long as you remain a customer. Try getting a free phone from Sprint, Verizon, or AT&T.


^WTH did I just read? How is a phone free with a 2-year contract different than a phone free with a 24-month monthly credit? In both cases you're due an specific amount if you leave before the 2 years, in the contract case you're due an ETF and in the "bill credit" you're due the remaining balance of the phone, in both cases the phone was subsidized by T-Mobile and in both cases you will have to pay out of pocket money for not staying 24 months... Apparently this new modality is good to fool some people...

^ If you SIGN IT its a contract,, period, so you walk into TMobile and you sign the darn contract and promise to pay off the phone, it IS a contract. With Metro and other prepaid services you do NOT sign anything. Your second analogy is also wrong. You cant cancel the service and pay off the phone via monthly payments over 2 years, so there is a CONTRACT making sure you keep the service for 2 years or you have to pay the ETF on the spot, its just called "paying off the phone. But once again you are wring, this deal is not bad because TMobile always lied and has contracts, its bad because its NOT $120, once you add all teh taxes, specially in Taxifornia, its $145ish so its $300/year more than Metro and forces you to have 4 lines while Metro has a 2 line minimum and no bills or junk coming in the mail either.

^ One of the three people.

^This IS the contract in disguise. Let's make it simple. You get the phone. you pay for the phone $x/month, you get bill credit that same x amount for each month. Now, if you cancel early, you pay for the rest of the phone you haven't paid yet AND you don't get the credits to cover the cost. So it's basically an ETF.

Just judging it based on different scenarios, its similar but a little better than your typical contract. First off, its available to existing customers. Thats huge. The phones other dealers offer are either terrible or not free. Next, other dealers generally don't prorate the cost of your phone based on how long you used it. So if you cancel a week before your contract date, you owe the full cost of the phone or an exorbitant flat rate. In this scenario, you'd only owe one payment. All in all, seems like a slick deal

^you are talking about years ago, the 2 year contracts now start getting lower ETFs over time, at least with AT&T it is like that and the 2 year contracts include sometimes HUGE subsidies on phones which cheap TMobile no longer offers.

^I think the main problem with this deal is the perception that "free" comes with strings attached. But what people really need to ask is whether they were willing to buy a set of $140-$250 phones outright and stay with Tmo for 2 years even without this deal. If this is the case, then whether this is a pseudo-contract or not is irrelevant. They are saving a ton of money by getting a good rate plan and several hundred dollars worth of devices for free.


For the people whining about how this is a "contract":
(Simple calculations)

Tmobile's service plan $120 + EIP $30 (2 years) = $150

Contract plan $150 (2 years) + "free" phone = $150

After 2 years:
Tmobile's service plan $120 = $120

Contract plan without renewal for another "free" phone = $150

^This guy blessed the rest of you numskulls with some simple math.

^ Wrong math, you are hiding the massive taxes TMobile passing on to you, the customer, while Metro, Straighttalk, Cricket, pay the taxes for you. Thats hundreds of dollars a year.

Speak for yourself. I'm in north Dallas and get great coverage.

If T-Mobile doesn't perform well in parts of North Dallas, it simply means that T-Mobile isn't the right choice in those places. Nothing more, nothing less.

Where I live, where I work, and where my family lives, T-Mobile coverage is great, with strong signal strength and virtually no dropped calls. (Verizon is also extremely good.)

Which simply means that where I typically find myself, T-Mobile is an excellent choice. Nothing more, nothing less.

I suppose there are even places where Sprint is the best choice of cellular carrier, although I'm not sure I've ever encountered such a thing. Smilie

I do note that T-Mobile coverage and overall call quality seems to have improved markedly from what it was several years ago. I base this on experience mostly in the Northeast corridor - from roughly NYC's northern suburbs, down through NJ, out to Philadelphia's western suburbs, and continuing south to the Baltimore/DC area.

But then, I suspect most carriers have increased their coverage footprint and improved network speed and reliability, from what it was several years ago. No, not in all geographic areas, but in many areas.

Oh, and as for any "You get what you pay for" comment, isn't it fundamental to SD's very existence that this isn't always the case? Smilie
The 10GB plan ($40/line, $160 for 4) plus a free Samsung Galaxy J7 is a really good deal, solid mid-range phone. The Galaxy On5 deal isn't as slick because MetroPCS is giving out the same phone for free.

I'd mention this is T-Mobile back to school deal.

Since the deal is really a 24 month financing discount you'll likely end up paying full price for the phones.

Ignoring the free phone, does this mean I can get 2 lines of 6 GB data, unlimited talk and text for $60 a month? Because that's what I have now and I pay $80

since the phone is free with credits, I wonder if you can get it if you already have a phone you are paying on

I am hoping this is the case but not holding my breath. Haven't had a 2 line promo in awhile.

EDIT Ignoring the phone this plan is already on my account as a plan I can change to...

I'm in Denver, CO, and I recently went back to T-Mobile after 7 years of Verizon. It's amazing to me that T-Mobile can suck this bad and I still have dropped calls after all this time. How can they not have their infrastructure fixed by now? I regularly drop calls out and about, and about half of the calls are poor quality (they can't hear me clearly) and my at-home experience was so bad (even worse) I had to get an in-home mini tower.
