Instant rebate + rebate after 3 months. 3 month rebate is via virtual prepaid mastercard.
Requires Port + $100+ value trade in.
Trade in calculator: https://www.metrobyt-mobile.com/trade-in
From the T&Cs it looks like you need to: port a number + pay $150 upfront for the phone + tax on full MSRP + $60/month (for 3 months to qualify for a $150 rebate).

The $100 value on the trade really kills this deal Frown

T-Mobile (NASDAQ: TMUS) is helping people get back to school, and now Metro by T-Mobile is getting in on the action with iPhone 12 mini on Us — the first and only prepaid provider to offer the 5G-capable iPhone 12 mini on Us — starting July 22. And, as always, it comes with access to T-Mobile's award-winning nationwide 5G network on all plans.

Here's how it works: You pick up your iPhone 12 mini with 5G from a Metro by T-Mobile store, and after three months, T-Mobile gives you a rebate making that phone yours free and clear. Simply bring in your qualifying trade in and activate your phone number on Metro's top-of-the-line unlimited plan. It's $60 per month or just $30 per person per month for a family of four. And that plan is absolutely STACKED — unlimited talk, text and 5G smartphone data; monthly taxes and fees included and 15GB of high-speed hotspot data … PLUS an Amazon Prime membership for #AllTheThingsRightAway.

If congested, the fraction of users >35GB/mo. may notice reduced speeds and Metro customers may notice reduced speeds vs. T-Mobile due to prioritization. Video streams at up to 480p. Limited time offers; subject to change. iPhone On Us: Qualifying port-in, valid ID & trade-in ($100+ value) required. Via $580 instant rebate off FRP of $729.99 and $150 rebate via virtual prepaid MasterCard. Limit 2/account. Plus tax on pre-rebate price. Must be active & in good standing to receive $150 rebate. Not valid in CT/RI/Miami-Dade. Amazon Prime: Included with select rate plans for new Prime members. Offer subject to change. $12.99/month value. Amazon terms apply. 5G: Some uses may require certain plan or feature; see T-Mobile.com. Most Reliable: According to an audit report conducted by independent third-party umlaut containing crowdsourced data for user experience collected from September 2020 until February 2021. Full details at: www.umlaut.com/en/benchmarking/USA [umlaut.com]. Fastest: According to Opensignal Awards – USA: 5G User Experience Report July 2021​, based on independent analysis of average speeds from mobile measurements recorded during the period March 16 - June 13, 2021 © 2021 Opensignal Limited.​

I expect the Metro by T-Mobile website to update when the offer goes live on 22 July.

There is a marriage on the system side between SIM and phone - it can be changed if you do some self-service requests on the website - it won't work automatically.

Yes. But condition is you've to port in a number with brand new account to get this discount.
If your name/address is not eligible to get the discount, you can bring your friend, and create account with his name. Then swap the device to your number.

It started on 7/22 but I don't see a posted end date. I wouldn't count on it lasting more than a month. I'm going to try tomorrow at a corporate store and will post the outcome of my adventure.

No action needed from your end. The rebate link will be sent over SMS anytime after 8 weeks at the minimum. Metro guys said 3 months but it can come anytime after the months.

You need the model number. Try G013A for Pixel 3.

As someone that switched from 12 years of Android usage and last 3 devices being PIxel phones, I kinda regret going to iPhone 12 mini. I thought I can live with it after seeing how much bigger my wife's regular iphone 12 is and was concerned of awkward pocketability but the 12 mini is really small. I don't have big hands and it's a PITA to do simple cursor move around to click on some of the smaller context buttons on the 12 mini. I just wish Apple had something between mini and regular, not even the max because that thing is huuuge.

I hope they have an android equivalent. I can't justify a switch to an iphone if its that tiny.

For T-mo it is 40 days and with Metro, you'll have to wait for 6 months, unless you are military awaiting deployment.

The iphone 12 Pro is close to the size of Pixel 3. Slightly thicker and heavier but negligible.
I've been a Pixel user and got the iphone Pro and it's a good size comparable to the Pixel.

Is this the 64gb? What qualifies for an eligible trade in? Is phone locked? Can phone be used on T-Mobile network (ie activate on Metro, keep line active but put Metro sim in drawer and put in T-Mobile sim)
