T-Mobile Adds Apple Music to Music Freedom, Offers Free 'iPhone 6s' Upgrade With iPhone 6 Trade-In

T-Mobile today announced that it has added Apple Music to Music Freedom, allowing Simple Choice customers to listen to the streaming music service without the cellular data counting against their monthly 4G LTE data plan. Apple Music joins dozens of other streaming music services supported by Music Freedom, including Spotify, Pandora, Rdio, Google Play Music, iHeartRadio, SoundCloud and SiriusXM.

T-Mobile also announced that customers who purchase an iPhone 6 for $15 per month through the JUMP! On Demand trade-in program will be automatically eligible to receive a free upgrade to the next iPhone -- the so-called "iPhone 6s" -- when it is released, with the $15 monthly promotional price carrying over to the new smartphone.


Purchasing an iPhone 6 through JUMP! On Demand will also land you priority access to the next iPhone, when T-Mobile receives inventory of the next-generation device, for those that upgrade within the first 48 hours of availability. T-Mobile claims these two new Apple promotions are the last of the carrier's Un-carrier Amped moves this summer.

I friggin love T-Mobile, they just gotta improve coverage though, that's the one thing they are lacking. Even in cities where they claim they have excellent coverage it's just not as good as AT&T.

Apple Music has never counted against my data. This is more for PR than anything else.


iTunes Radio has been covered, but Apple Music had to be made official, since it's a new service.

Maybe Team Magenta is also giving Cupertino some lip service with this latest announcement... it would seriously be a game changer in the wireless industry if Apple decided to acquire T-Mobile USA. I know, one can dream, right?

Pretty much this. I have a corp discount of 20% on ATT which has kept me on that service, but at this point Tmob is still cheaper, the only issue is coverage. Fix that and I am all in (four lines).

Doesn't this type of service raise some pretty substantial net neutrality questions? T-mobile is in effect choosing market winners for streaming.

With all these whitelisted data offerings it's becoming less and less necessary to even have an unlimited data plan on T-Mobile.


Video. Doubt they'll be whitelisting video services anytime soon.

Which cities are you referring to? They compete rather well in many.
