Metro by T-Mobile: (starts 7/29) $25/month unlimited w/ eligible port, trade in any phone & free Samsung A32 5G B&M

+31 Deal Score
68,143 Views
In-store only. Plan does not include tethering / hotspot.

Edit: Spoke to a phone support rep and was told that this deal is eligible for any valid port, not just for current Cricket or Boost customers. The price specified here is for reference ONLY to Boost or Cricket to show that it is half off. I gave a Visible number to check and it showed as eligible.

Ditch Boost or Cricket to SAVE HALF.
Get one line of unlimited with 5G included for $25/month, plus get a FREE Samsung Galaxy A32 5G when you switch and trade-in your eligible device—all on the power of the T-Mobile 5G network.

Available starting 7/29
Limited time offer, in-store only. Requires eligible port and qualified trade-in. After 24 months, $25 plan price may increase. Save half based on Boost $50 and Cricket $55 monthly unlimited plans. If congested, heavy data users (>35GB/mo.) may notice reduced speeds and Metro customers may notice reduced speeds vs T‑Mobile due to prioritization

Fine print:

The BIG 5G Upgrade/Free Samsung Galaxy A32 5G:

After 24 months, $25 plan price may increase. Limited time offer, in-store only. Save half based on 1-line w/ Metro for $25 vs Boost $50 and Cricket $55 monthly unlimited plans.

$25/month for 1-line of unlimited smartphone data (tethering not included, limited tethering included with Boost $50 plan); unlimited while on-network. Offer requires qualifying port-in, trade-in ($0+ value) & ID validation. Excludes phone numbers currently on T-Mobile or active on Metro in past 180 days. Tax due at point-of-sale on pre-rebate price. Rebate provided in form of credit against regular purchase price at time of sale and has no cash value. May not be combinable with certain other offers.

Other terms: If congested, heavy data users (>35GB/mo.) may noticed lower speeds & Metro customers may notice lower speeds vs. T-Mobile, due to data prioritization. Video streaming at DVD quality (480p). See metrobyt-mobile.com for Coverage details, Terms and Conditions, and Open Internet information for network management details (like video optimization).

As far as I am aware, while locked T-mobile phones can be used on Metro - Locked Metro phones CANNOT be used on T-mobile.

It might be different experience for others but when I tried getting 12 mini deal their trade in system got glitch and didn't want to process deal properly. From $10+ value it's probably iphone 6s and up (original SE won't do it either). Check your device on their device value estimator: https://www.metrobyt-mobile.com/trade-in . If it's not on the list then the store probably won't take it either, strangely enough some lower memory variants of iphone are not eligible as well.

For 12 mini, not THIS deal, this one is $10+ but they're also giving you A32 which is less than half cost of 12 mini.

https://www.metrobyt-mobile.com/cell-phone-plans shows max 5-lines only. I would expect porting in all six lines and not just the first one.

iPhone 7 32GB shows trade in estimate of $36! That too subject to inspection.

Anyone know the cheapest boost or cricket phone that would qualify for this deal? The trade in page sucks trying to plug in different phone models.

I can't even get the trade in page to show anything at all for model. Nothing comes up.
