Let’s Talk Take: ★ ★ ★ ★

Let’s Talk Take: ★ ★ ★ ★ ★

The flexibility of this T-Mobile deal is really what pushes it to five stars for us. You can buy any of the Samsung Galaxy phones—S10, Note10, S20—and get the second one free. While you may not need two phones, it’s a great deal for a couple looking to get new phones, especially if they’re Samsung fans.

Let’s Talk Take: ★ ★ ★ ★

The OnePlus 8 5G is one of the best 5G devices for its price—you get a lot of great features, including an advanced triple-lens camera system and a cinematic fluid display, for an affordable price. This deal cuts that already affordable price in half.

Total Savings: Up to $650

T-Mobile really wants Verizon customers to switch to them. To entice you, they are offering to pay off what you owe on your device, up to $650, when you make the switch. To qualify for this deal you need to have an eligible iPhone, Pixel, or Samsung phone with Verizon.

Let’s Talk Take: ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ 

We’re giving this deal 5/5 stars because T-Mobile is a great carrier, and they are PAYING you to switch. Not only are they willing to offer up to $650, but you also get to keep and use your phone on their network which isn’t always the case with deals like this.

T-Mobile will pay off your phone payments, up to $650, when you leave Verizon and switch to them.

Fine Print: Limited time offer. Your device payment plan with Verizon must be at least 90 days old. You have to port in your current number. The $15 ONE Plus feature or the Global Plus Feature needs to be added to your device. Only available with qualifying phones:

  • iPhone SE, 6s, 6s Plus, 7, 7 Plus, 8, 8 Plus, X, XR, XS, and XS Max
  • Google Pixel, Pixel XL, Pixel 2, Pixel 2 XL, Pixel 3, and Pixel 3 XL
  • Samsung Galaxy S8, S8+, Note8, S9, S9+, and Note9

Get 2 Phones and 2 Lines for $100/Month

Total Savings: Up to $175.20

There is a T-Mobile offer on the T-Mobile Essentials family plan that allows you to join with two lines and get two select Android phones for $5/month each. With the plan, you’ll pay $90/month for T-Mobile Essentials and $10/month for your two devices every month.

The phones include budget Android devices, such as:

  • LG Aristo 2 Plus ($150)
  • Samsung Galaxy J3 Star ($175)
  • Motorola E5 Play ($150)
  • T-Mobile REVVL Plus ($120) and REVVL 2 ($168)

Rather than paying the full retail price for each phone, you will instead pay the reduced price of $5/month after billing credits are applied within 1-2 billing cycles. Credits vary based on the retail price of each phone, knocking them down to that $5 each per month.

As for the plan included, T-Mobile Essentials includes unlimited talk, text, and data with 50GB of high-speed data before any reduced speeds (deprioritization when T-Mobile’s network becomes congested) and costs $90/month for two lines. It’s a fairly no-frills unlimited plan, but with T-Mobile’s 4G network, it offers almost everything you need. It even includes an unlimited 3G-speed hotspot.

Let’s Talk Take: ★ ★ ★ 

If you need a new unlimited family plan and want two affordable smartphones, this is your deal. Paying $10/month for two phones is a pretty sweet option, but keep in mind these devices aren’t high-end. Three stars.

Fine Print: Two lines of service and two devices with financing agreements required. Discounts paid out via billing credits within 1-2 billing cycles. 12 devices max. Taxes not included. Credit check, deposit, and $25 SIM card kit may be required.
