T-Mobile has announced a new BOGO promotion that offers qualifying Simple Choice customers half off all iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus models, or any iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, with the purchase of another iPhone of equal or greater value. The savings are applied instantly at the point of sale.

Eligible devices can be purchased for full retail price, or through T-Mobile's Jump financing program, and no smartphone trade-in is required. T-Mobile continues to offer up to $650 towards a balance owing or to pay off early termination fees to new customers that switch to the carrier.

The limited time offer is available in the U.S. at T-Mobile stores nationwide starting today, while supplies last, and also applies to Samsung's Galaxy S6 and Galaxy Note5 lineup and LG's G4 and V10 smartphones. The promotion can also be requested over the phone by calling 1-800-TMOBILE.

Simple Choice customers with approved credit are eligible to purchase up to 12 devices, meaning 6 devices at half off. T-Mobile@Work customers can also take advantage of the offer. The promotion does not allow customers to mix and match iPhones and Android-based smartphones.

This would make me consider upgrading me and my wife from our 6/6+ to 7/7+ iPhones, but it's a limited time offer... kind of doubtful that they'll still be offering it in 8 months.

We'll probably just wait for the 8 series. The 6 pair is still going very strong for us - we see little reason in upgrading for the next few years.

I visited the link online, the ads only featured Android, LG, and Samsung phones. Only in the fine print does it say iPhones are eligible. Good catch!

However, it doesn't specifically state that the promotion will be honored for existing customers whom may be outside of their contract. We should assume that existing customers won't qualify.

I agree with Waxhead138's comment above. We should probably assume this is for people who want a cheap phone, are unfamiliar with T-Mobile's gaps in coverage and service area, and put value in a promotion above network coverage. It's a good deal for people that don't think it's inconvenient to carry an AT&T/Verizon phone in addition to a T-Mobile phone around.

There were many uncharacteristic deals such as this last quarter which IMO was the reason why Apple barely sold 0.3 million more units. AT&T had something very similar, while T-Mobile's jump on demand significantly undercuts the retail price at only $20 per month.

T-Mobile's questionable service coverage set aside, could this be a good switching deal for a family of 4 despite already purchasing one off the Apple UP?

Bolded needs to be fixed. T-Mobile.com says trade-in not required in the FAQ (bottom of the page). Leaked memo on Tmonews also confirms trade-in not required. Plus if you have to trade-in, buying just 2 would be a worthless deal.

I don't see where this applies to iPhones.
Unfortunately the only place that says the iPhone 6/6s are included is in the FAQ section at the bottom of the page. T-Mobile trying to keep them on the DL perhaps?

Lol and yet I bet the TMO Kool-Aid Drinkers or defenders still won't see the desperation here whilst also hiding things in fine print... But I digress onto the replies since MR has gotten far more persnickety over not using multi quote


That's fitting considering their network is at least half turned off at all times.

LOL Accurate!

Yeah pretty much... As I often state/comment in these types of threads/articles I only have more than 1 phone due to jobs and then being provided and paid for on someone else's dime. T-Mobile Sprint and Verizon have however made it onto my S***t list


the times I did pay for them was a horrible mistake slash life lesson

I don't see where this applies to iPhones.

Its hidden in the fine print in certain places. In truth T-Mobile doesn't want you get a 1/2 price iPhone but rather lesser devices they have to apply less discounts to lol

some news sites are saying that this plan is for android phones only, but the faq clearly says iPhones are eligible.

t-mobile doesn't go out of their way promoting that iPhones are eligible

Actually T-Mobile has become a very good option with a strong network. While they don't have perfect coverage everywhere, they're better than a few years ago. Taking advantage of the decline in demand for iPhones this is a great deal.

Yeah, I poke fun at TMOB half in jest....if you live in a city they aren't at all a bad option. Once you travel out to the 'burbs though the coverage plummets drastically. If I lived in a large city I'd seriously consider them as an option.

In the meantime, they are quite significant just because they are obviously a huge influence on change in the US wireless industry.

Purchased this deal on 1/27 at a T-Mobile retail kiosk, 6s Plus 64GB $849, 6s 64GB $375. No problems with sale. I'm an existing customer with just a 2-line mobile plan -off contract of course, no hardware or EIP before the purchase.

I called T-Mobile sales before going to the store, telephone sales told me they couldn't sell me the phones since I was already a customer, told me I had to go to a retail store- which was fine with me..

[doublepost=1454362703][/doublepost]I went to a Tmobile store on Saturday to buy 2 Note 5's but the rep didn't know how to ring up the sale?! No one in the store knew how to ring up the sale to get us the promotion! After being with Tmobile for over 10 years its time to go, they obviously don't care about their customers any longer.

They tend to have a habit of
"oh this can't be done"

Or

"We don't know how to do that"

Or

"this isn't compatible with that"
( when it really is lol )

[doublepost=1455426935][/doublepost]Guys this is a lame deal because of its unnecessary restrictions. You have to buy from the same brand and both phones have to be on the same family plan, so if your friend is on another family plan with them and wants this deal, they can't do it. I don't understand how making it be from the same brand and family plan would benefit them any less financially than allowing us to mix brands and come from different family plans.
