If you've been holding off on picking up a new phone on T-Mobile, your time to strike approaches. From September 21 to September 30, T-Mobile will be running a Zero Down promotion, whereby anybody willing to sign a two-year contract and pay off the device through installments will be able to get their phone without paying anything up-front. Well, sort of. You still have to send off that mail-in rebate, but after that, it almost feels like you're getting a free phone. 

T-Mobile's making a point to highlight the Samsung Galaxy S 3 in this promotion, but there's a lot of decent hardware available, like the Blaze 4G, Galaxy S Relay, One S, and the new myTouch. Who knows, maybe with a bit of luck we might see a T-Mobile version of the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 before the promo finishes. 

There are an awful lot of strings attached to a promotion like this, but for starving students looking for a new phone and not having a lot of money for a hefty down-payment, this is a pretty sweet deal. More information on the promotion is available over at T-Mobile Anybody biting?
