T-Mobile Valentine's Day sale

T-Mobile wants to share a little love this Valentine's Day, and they are trying to win your heart with free phones.  On Feb. 11 and 12 (hey, that's this weekend!) all phones on T-Mobile will be free.  This includes their high end Android phones like the MyTouch 4G, the T-Mobile G2, and the Samsung Vibrant.

Of course free really means you're tied to a two year agreement, and if you dig a little deeper into the press release you see that "Mail-in rebate card may apply".  But if you were planning on sticking with T-Mobile for two years anyway, might as well score a free Android phone out of the deal.  The full press release is after the break.

T-Mobile announces all phones free for Valentine's Day


What's their early termination fee, 175 or so? Whats to stop someone from signing up and canceling the next day to get a new G2 for only $175 ?

And then what do you do with the phone? Frame it? You probably want to have service again. I have a feeling they would probably have something to prevent you from activating a terminated contract phone right afterward. Good question, though.

$250. Plus you wouldn't get your mail in rebate... and T-mobile typically won't cancel your recently purchased plan unless you return your handset. ;)

>"Of course free really means you're tied to a two year agreement"

Exactly. It isn't free at all. Nothing at all free about it.

Here, you can have this car for FREE! You just have to sign up for a monthly payment for two years.

nothing is EVER free in this world! but if they are going to give you a mail in rebate for the full price of your phone, im not seeing what everyone is b!tching about. and even if you bought a phone at full price you still have to pay for service every month, so it's really nothing like saying here is a free car just make the monthly payment. the equivalent would be Chevy giving you a brand new Camaro and then 8 weeks later giving you a check for the $32,000 you spent on the car, you still have to buy fuel to make it go up and down the road dumba$$.


It seems that your monthly should go down after the contract is done and the phone is paid off. And if you Bring Your Own Phone, you should get better pricing as well.

Does T-Mo offer any BYOP or Month to Month plans?

Yes, and at a significant discount. Because they actually charge less if they don't have to subsidize the hardware, I hate T-Mo slightly less than the other US carriers.


I am seriously considering this. I am currently a Verizon user and have been for 10 years. My wife and I have OG Droids (and two other feature phones), and I am unhappy by the lack of stock Androids coming out, and just Verizon in general. My termination fee for all four phones is only $350.00, and I think I could see them to cover most of that.

I am really looking at the G2, to get for free, but also be able to buy the next Nexus when it comes out (even if I have to pay full price). The savings on four new smart phones, and being able to put the other two on the $10.00 a month plans is great. Plus, the extra bonus is I can port my numbers to Google Voice while canceling my Verizon plan.

Is there any reason I should be considering something else?

I'm considering this as well, but I'm thinking of getting the HD7. I know it's not an Android phone, but I have an N1 on TMo right now. According the Engadget, people with service now can get the deal as well. So as long as I can get the phone by just renewing my contract for the next two years, and I can keep my sim card I already have, then I can just go back and forth. I'm kind of interested in WP7 and want to follow it's development, but I'm also hoping some will port Android to the HD7 in the future.
