T-Mobile has just launched a new promotion for those that might be looking to switch to the Un-Carrier. This new promotion is available for new and existing customers, so even if you are a current T-Mobile customer, you can trade-in your existing phone to get a new one at a very low price. It also uses T-Mobile's new 36-month Equipment Installment Plan (EIP), so when T-Mobile says as low as $40/month for some of these phones (which includes your unlimited plan), that's because the payments are spread out over an extra 12 months.
Included in this promotion are top smartphones from LG, Samsung and even Apple. So you can pick up something like the Galaxy S8 or Galaxy S9 for a pretty low price. Of course, this is going to depend on the phone you are trading in, and how much it is worth. Obviously, when it comes to trade-ins, the newer phones get higher values, as they are phones that T-Mobile can actually turn around and sell afterwards. However, the Samsung Galaxy S9 and LG G7 ThinQ are both discounted already, which makes them great phones to take advantage of this plan. There are a slew of devices that will get you about $360 in trade-in value, those include the Samsung Galaxy S8, Galaxy S8+, Galaxy Note8, Google Pixel, Pixel XL, Pixel 2, Pixel 2 XL, LG V30, LG G7 ThinQ, Apple iPhone 7, iPhone 7 Plus, iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus. Those that will net you $250 trade-in include the Samsung Galaxy Note 5, Galaxy S6, Apple iPhone 6, iPhone 6S, iPhone 6 Plus, iPhone 6S Plus.
Now the "$40 per month" price that T-Mobile is promoting does include your unlimited data plan. Which sounds pretty impressive. But it's important to remember here that to get to the $40 per month, you need a phone for $10 per month and then sign up for T-Mobile Essentials. This unlimited plan doesn't really have any caveats, it's the same unlimited that you would get from T-Mobile One Plus, the difference here is that you aren't getting the extras like GoGo InFlight Internet, unlimited global roaming, free Netflix and so forth. Instead you are getting unlimited talk, text and data and that's it. And for many people, that's all they want or need. Of course, T-Mobile isn't limiting you to just the T-Mobile Essentials or One Plus plans, if you are eligible, you can also get the Military or 55+ plans, which are pretty heavily discounted already. T-Mobile has plenty of choices for those that do want to pay as little as possible for their new smartphone.
To take advantage of this deal from T-Mobile, you can head to your local T-Mobile retail store, call T-Mobile's customer service or head to their website to get things started. Remember that when you are trading in a smartphone like you are with this deal, it is going to take a couple of months for the bill credit to be applied to your account. So you may end up having to pay the full, regular amount due on that phone for the first couple of months. But T-Mobile does generally get things straightened out after the first month or so. It's simply because these things take time, and it's nothing out of the ordinary, it actually happens with any promotion that involves giving a customer bill credits.
