    for the phone ?
    Meaning can we just pay the monthly $22 for the finance for the phone?
    instead of paying also the service? The T-mobile deal with no contract and $99 for it up front.

    Went to T Mobiles website, and right on the front page it says that if you cancel your service the remaining balance becomes due. So no, you can't just finance the phone through them, you have to have service.

    Also even though the service is no contract, they will bill you for the entire remaining balance you owe on the phone if you decide to cancel.

    In my opinion T-mobile's USA "uncarrier" marketing is just as deceptive as the other post paid carriers

    They say no contract (which technically is true) but its just essentially a contract to pay "x" amount per month per phone in addition to your regular tmobile monthly bill until you pay off the device

    It is however a true no contract carrier if u pay full price or being your own phone.

    Not true. Tmobile monthly payment will be lower after contract is done. So basically you are paying extra per month to the device.

    You still need to go through a credit check. At the store they keep pushing to sign you up for the contract type plans instead of the prepaid ones.

    Only tmobile resellers try to push the contract plans. Tmobile official stores do not.
