Deal: T-Mobile Offering IPhone 7 For FREE With Trade-in Of Any IPhone 6(S)(+)

The cat is out of the bag, T-Mobile only recently revamped its tiered data plans and now only offers a single, unlimited plan with some fine text. It looks like T-Mobile planned this strategic go as it announced the recent plans not too far before the iPhone 7’s announcements.

But even with the recent iPhone 7’s announcement, T-Mobile isn’t slowing down. John Legere, CEO of T-Mobile. Has just tweeted that it will be offering a free iPhone 7 for T-Mobile with trade-in of an iPhone 6, 6S, 6 Plus, or 6S Plus.

Here’s the way it works:

  • New or existing customers can trade in their iPhone 6, 6 Plus, 6S or 6S Plus in any memory variant

  • Phone must be able to turn on, not have water damage, and can’t have a shattered screen

  • You have to agree to a 24-month finance plan (which will only cost the discounted price) [hint: this is the hook, I’ll elaborate why]

  • iPhone 7 32GB is FREE, or iPhone 7 Plus would cost only $120, 128GB iPhone 7 would be $100, I think you acquire it

  • This offer is “while supplies last” so it could discontinue at any time

Alcorrect so here’s the catch. By agreeing to a 24-month “no-cost finance agreement” T-Mobile will put the recent iPhone down as a recent finance purchase with monthly payments as normal, except the T-Mobile will apply credits to your monthly statement… for the phone that is. You’ll still need to pay for service and Jump (or equipment protection). So basically, by agreeing to a free (or heavily discounted) iPhone, you’ll have that iPhone tied to T-Mobile for two years.

If you want to leave, there is no negative consequence and it’s quite fair: You’d have to pay the remaining balance of the phone off if you want to leave T-Mobile (total cost – credits already applied), or you can just turn it back in.

If you recall, T-Mobile did a lucratively similar offer for the Samsung Galaxy S7 by offering the brand-recent phone as a two-for-one deal. This prompted all the carriers to do the same thing. We wouldn’t be surprised if other carriers will chime in with similar and perhaps lucrative offers.
