In short: $400 off on the phone. Port in a number to Metro, get A52 for $100 + tax + $60 first month service fee for unlimited plan.

Retail price $499, I don't see any major retailers offering discount without trade in/bill credit.

There is a separate promotion trade in a phone and get $25/month unlimited plan. Getting this promotion will likely change the phone discount. Once trade in agreement is signed, there is no way to cancel.

Phone automatically unlocks after 180 days. Active service not required. Only need to pay one month service fee. Go to a corporate store to avoid activation fee and other fees. Authorized dealer tends to have many hidden fees, such as insurance, phone case. In store experience is highly YMMV, stores make up their own rules.

Phone spec:
- 5G capable
- Qualcomm Snapdragon 750G 5G
- 6GB RAM
- 6.5" HD+ TFT, 1080 x 2400 pixels, 20:9 ratio (~407 ppi density)
- 4500mAh battery with Fast Charge
- 64MP OIS quad camera system
- 128GB memory (expandable up to 1TB)
- IP67 dust/water resistant (up to 1m for 30 mins)
- Corning Gorilla Glass 5



Terms:
Limited time offer, in-store only while supplies last. Req. eligible port, ID validation & activation on $60/mo. plan. Receive $400 instant rebate of retail price. Additional restrictions apply. Tax on pre-rebate price. See store for details.

Samsung Galaxy A52 Switcher Instant PLUS Rebate: For a limited time & while supplies last, at participating Metro by T-Mobile stores, purchase a Samsung Galaxy A52 and port-in an eligible wireless number to a Metro $60/mo. plan and receive an instant $400 rebate off the full retail price of $499.99 with validation of name, address, and date of birth provided through independent database and with matching identification. Excludes numbers active on the T-Mobile/MetrobyT-Mobile in past 180 days. Limit two (2) total smartphone instant rebates per account/household.

Most likely no, especially if you try to do so at Corporate store, they might even call old provider to find out how long you had your service with them.

This phone went on sale for $392 after educational discount on Samsung.com several months ago. The in-screen fingerprint reader isn't the fastest, but it's reliable enough. The biggest downside is the haptic motor (perhaps also a problem on the new Pixels) is so weak that you'll probably miss the vibrating notifications.

What is the "Switch to Metro and get one line of unlimited for $25/month—plus a free SIM card." part about?


The offer appears to be a separate one or can you do this with a $25/mo plan too?

Quote from joshs1930 :
Does anyone know if they will accept a mint mobile number for the promo? Asking cause Mint is a T-Mobile mvno.
I spent about a half in the Metro store. They ran our phone # in the system and saw that it was a T-mobile mvno and would not allow it. It actually was a Sprint mvno. So neither would quality. They showed us the computer screen where it was "denied". They said we could still get a free phone, but we'd have to do the $60 a month plan. We left and went to boost across the street. Also, he did mention that the $25 a month at Metro is for 24 months.

So a $100 phone that will end up costing you more than the full retail price ($499) if you need to unlock, and you do...
6 months of service is like 360 + taxes and fees?
It's a good thing there are a lot of these used and unlocked.

Can we trade old flip phones? I have a couple of old ones in a drawer.
I was at a corporate store today, and I was told that the phone for the trade-in needed to be worth at least $10 in their system. I checked Samsung S4 and iPhone 5, and neither of them qualified.

Crazy. My S3 should be worth $10! It still turns on and charges fine. No scratches or obvious damage.

Nope. The A52 %G has super amoled screen vs standard IPS screen on N10 and A52 with 120 Hz vs 90 Hz on N10. Slightly larger battery on the A52 at 4,500 vs 4,300 mAh. Front camers on A52 is 32GB vs 16GB on Nord 10 and the big one is the A52 has water proof/resistant IP67 rating vs none on the OnePlus N10
