    I have a chance to buy one direct from a mac retailer online for $580 shipped.

    but id rather buy it in store from tmobile so i can get the applecare plus

    i already have a contract with tmobile, will the phone cost $580+tax or what? im confused because i seen someone else had a problem buying the phone and was forced to pay $650...

    I don't know what what kind of plan (i.e. grandfathered, classic, value) you have but I think you should be able to buy the phone for $580 plus taxes, although I'm not 100 % sure about that.

    BTW, have you spoken to someone in T-Mobile's customer care department and/or retentions department about the cost of the phone? They should be able to give you a more definitive answer.

    T-Mobile does not have contracts now. If you are on the classic plan with discounted phones, you will need to go to Beatbuy or other third parties. If you were on Value plan, you can change over to the new simple choice plan. My monthly premium for. 4 lime family has gone down from $180 to $140. If you have a legacy plan and ot in contract you can migrate to the newer plan with no migration fee.

    I bought mine from T-Mobile for $580+tax. I was on a classic plan so I had to switch to one of the new ones, but it ended up saving me $10/mo anyway.

    I inquired about this with T-Mobile. I was told, you can either finance it, $99 plus $20 a month for 23 months or pay the $580 upfront. I believe the financing part was an incentive to stick with them for 2 years. You have the option of paying off the phone whenever you'd like.
