T-Mobile today introduced a limited time promotion to encourage Verizon customers with select iPhone models to switch to their network.

Starting May 31, when a Verizon customer with an iPhone 7, iPhone 7 Plus, iPhone 6s, iPhone 6s Plus, or iPhone SE brings their smartphone to T-Mobile, they'll be able to keep the device, and have any remaining monthly payments owing towards it paid off in full, whether it's $1 or $1,000.

The catch is that Verizon customers will be required to pay $15 per month for T-Mobile's Premium Device Protection Plus insurance program in addition to their new T-Mobile ONE plan. The insurance program protects an iPhone from loss, theft, and accidental damage.

A spokesperson for T-Mobile told MacRumors that the usual AppleCare+ perks of the Premium Device Protection Plus plan are not included since the iPhones switched over aren't purchased as new.

The offer will be available at T-Mobile stores across the United States next week. T-Mobile says the balance of any remaining device payments will be provided in the form of a digital prepaid MasterCard in approximately 15 to 30 days. Customers must remain with T-Mobile for 60+ days after switching.

It's worth clarifying that this deal is only applicable if you've had the contract for 60+ days.

Otherwise somebody could get a Verizon contract, then immediately take it to T-Mob and have a new iPhone for $15 a month. So if you were thinking of doing that, don't! :)

It's like saying, "Great, I'm saving money...but I have no service!" My wife still holds it against me for switching her to T-MOBILE. Can we say "failed experiment"?
As per usual with mobile phones YMMV. Sorry that T-mo isn't good in your area. Where I live it works well and getting better every year. I now have service in places I used to get 0 bars.

I used to bag on T-Mobile like you. I had ATT and was an arrogant prick, always mocking T-Mobile "lol can and a string!"

Then I actually got T-Mobile. They've come a super long way and I have zero regrets. I have blazing fast service literally everywhere I go (~4 states in the mountain west).

Their recent auction winning means their service is aggressively being built. I know they have said "were getting better guys!" for years, but this time it's legit.

Better hop on a plan, which they won't force you out of, while they are still cheap. $70 with no taxes is a super good deal...$100 for 2 lines is smoking.

Or not. Whatever makes you happy. Just know they aren't a two can and string network any longer. The internet memes are outdated.
