Mobile announces new deals on iPhones, Samsung Galaxy, and LG phones


And, the funds come back to you via a mail-in rebate.

Lastly, if you want to get out of Verizon but your contract still isn't over, T-Mobile will pay it off if your device is one of the 13 smartphones they list on their website, including Google Pixel and Google Pixel XL. If you're eyeing the 128GB or 256GB iPhone 7 Plus, 256GB iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus, or the iPhone X, T-Mobile will give you $700 off a second. Customers will need to add a new line for this deal. "Another 5 million people joined the uncarrier past year, and we've got fantastic deals not just for them and our other loyal customers, but for anyone fed-up with the carrier nonsense and ready to join team magenta".

The Un-carrier network is launching a new BOGO sale that includes discounts on some of the hottest smartphones in the market. The cost of the second phone will be reimbursed via rebate (up to $750 on Samsung and LG devices, and up to $700 on iPhones).

Meanwhile, if you just need one new smartphone, T-Mobile has a separate deal you might be interested in: $150 back via rebate when you purchase a new Samsung or LG handset on the company's Equipment Installment Plan and trade in a qualifying smartphone.

Zuma exit not discussed by South African ruling party, official says

Robbers steal millions in jewels from Ritz hotel in Paris
The five-star Ritz Hotel is located in Place Vendôme, in Paris' historical first district on the right bank of the river Seine. Mohammed al Fayed bought the hotel in 1979 and carried out major renovations to bring it back to its original popularity.

For customers only looking to purchase one device, T-Mobile is also offering up to $150 off through a trade-in program.

That's a long list of old phones, and odds are you have one just lying around the house, but still, the ideal BOGO is not both a switch and trade affair.

T-Mobile, famous (or infamous?) for not pulling its punches when trying to beat the competition, is starting off the year big with deals that will try to convince people to live their current carriers.
