T-Mobile's 'Go5G Next' Plan Lets Customers Upgrade Smartphones Every Year

T-Mobile today announced a new Go5G Next plan that is designed to allow subscribers to upgrade their smartphones on a yearly basis. The plan is available alongside the existing Go5G and Go5G Plus options.

Customers who opt for Go5G Next will be able to get a smartphone with a no-interest phone payment plan, and once half the phone has been paid off, customers are eligible for an upgrade. T-Mobile says that in "most cases" customers will be able to update yearly.

When opting for a new phone, the old phone will be traded in, and T-Mobile will pay off the remaining payments to allow for a new payment contract to be adopted for the updated device. According to T-Mobile, the Go5G Next plan is also meant to ensure that existing customers receive the same "great phone deals."

Say a customer picks up a $1000 smartphone. Once they pay off half ($500), that customer can trade it in toward a new one, and T-Mobile covers the remaining $500 on the old phone. And new and existing customers on Go5G Next always get the same great deals whenever they're ready to upgrade.

Go5G Next is priced at $100 for a single line with autopay (plus the cost of the smartphone payments), and it comes with 50GB of mobile hotspot data. T-Mobile's Go5G Next plans will be available starting on Thursday, and for a limited time, T-Mobile is offering three lines for $60/month per line.

Not really a deal as the new plan is more expensive. It is all smoke and mirrors.

I buy the top of the line iPhone and keep it for 5 years. I give the my old one to my Dad when I upgrade and he gets another 5 years out of it. Upgrading every year seems excessive.

I have absolutely no reason to spend $100 for my phone bill. Considering innovation in the smart phone space has been dwindling since 2018, getting a new iPhone every year is no longer enticing enough. Not to mention the chore of transferring apps and data every year. Who really wants to go through all that?

3 things in life are certain. Death, taxes and T-mobile releasing new, more expensive, plans every year with a promise of free phones.

Remember forever upgrade on Magenta? Remember the promise of Magenta Max getting the best deals? Then Go5G? One plus? Amplified?
