T-Mobile Offering Free 32GB iPhone 7 During Pre-Order With Trade-In

by

T-Mobile has announced that it will offer a free 32GB iPhone 7 during pre-order to new or existing customers when they trade in their iPhone 6, 6s, 6 Plus or 6s Plus. The offer is for a limited time and will be available at T-Mobile.com when pre-orders are live and T-Mobile retail stores.

The offer partially extends to other iPhone 7 models. For example, the 32GB iPhone 7 Plus is available for $120 with a trade-in, while the 128GB and 256GB iPhone 7 are available for $100 and $200, respectively.

To qualify for the offer, the trade-in iPhone has to be a 6, 6s, 6 Plus or 6s Plus and be able to turn on, have no water damage, and not have a shattered screen. Customers will also need a 24-month no-cost finance agreement. T-Mobile says that customers will see a credit on their bill every month for 24 months. After 24 months, T-Mobile says customers will have paid nothing and received a free iPhone 7.

Customers can walk away at any time by either paying their outstanding phone balance or turning in their iPhone 7.

AT&T has also announced a promo for the iPhone 7. New and existing DirecTV and AT&T U-verse customers can get a 32GB iPhone 7 on either AT&T Next or AT&T Next Every Year when they add a new line to their account from another wireless provider. Customers will receive up to $650 in monthly bill credits whey they activate their new iPhone. Similar to the T-Mobile offer, customers can choose another iPhone 7 model and pay the difference.

Always cracks me up when ATT tries to get in on these types of promos. Their offers never come close to competing.

I love T-Mobile. Just switched over from AT&T and brought all our iPhones along. Now I can upgrade them all to the iPhone 7 for free.

This is great, I'll be a very happy T-Mobile customer when John confirms this.

But, anyone know what happens when that iPhone you want to trade in has an EIP balance?

You still have to pay off the balance.
This promo locks you into a two year agreement with them. If you leave before the two years is up, you owe the remaining balance on the iPhone 7. They're basically making the monthly payments for you via a bill credit.

Isn't this basically going back to the 2 year contract model with an extra option of turning in the phone to get out of it instead of paying the ETF?

I read in another thread someone called and talked to a rep and found out you need to be on the new T-Mobile One plans. If true, not cool for me. I'd end up paying $20 more per month.

If that's true then this sucks big time...
