    Rated 2.9 out of 5 by 31 reviewers.
    Rated 1 out of 5 by awful No enough memory Slow Ear piece is pretty bad Consider other options because this is total garbage!! November 10, 2015
    Rated 3 out of 5 by Needs more internal memory My only two pet peeves with this phone is that it only has about 1 GB of memory for apps and does not have a backlit slide out keyboard. IMO all modern production Android devices should have at least 4 GB of memory for apps. Even though the Android version supports App2SD, there's no guarantee than a given app will be written to utilize App2SD. I have several apps that do not support App2SD. The phone will function fine if you keep about 256 MB free. Fortunately larger apps typically support App2SD. July 26, 2015
    Rated 1 out of 5 by Terrible phone, extremely limited internal memory. Since this phone only comes with 1GB of internal memory it constantly runs out of space. This prevents emails and text messages from working as well as updating of any applications. Most apps can't be moved to the SD card either. I would advice anyone considering this to not buy it. It really is a piece of junk. July 6, 2015
    Rated 2 out of 5 by snowy pictures...awful awful!!! Not happy with this memory, photos with plenty of snow and speckled and shades of pink and yellow..just awful. July 2, 2015
    Rated 1 out of 5 by Don't buy this phone! I bought this phone because I like to have a physical keyboard, and this was the only option. It does not have enough memory to be considered up to date. I installed facebook and candy crush and my memory is full. I cannot update any apps. I have to constantly delete emails, pics, and videos and it still tells me that my memory is full and if I want the phone to operate properly I have to delete more. I added an sd card, but the majority of items will not transfer. Do not buy this horrible phone. June 27, 2015
    Rated 1 out of 5 by Terrible! Don't buy, waste of money Went from an HTC 4gslide which I loved to a supposedly "newer model" for a qwerty (the LG F3Q) thought I'd be getting an upgrade, but it's junk, it's slow, the voice to text app doesn't understand a word I say ...even auto corrects when it does get it right to the wrong it will show up on the screen correctly and then think it's smarter?? this should not be considered a smart phone....slow to bring up keyboard, tells me my internal memory is full, takes not so great pics/video...really regret this purchase I wish HTC would just do a remake of the 4gslide I'd pay! This is the worst phone ever....."dumb-phone" Please don't torture yourself by buying this phone! only have 2 games loaded and can't load anymore, also doesn't download text from iPhones very well...sometimes not at all, won't download, asks me if I want to receive & when I hit yes it fails June 8, 2015
    Rated 3 out of 5 by low specs, ok keyboard I have been using the phone as daily driver for only a few days so I haven't filled up the memory and the main detractors are the odd button right next to the A key that I hit by accident all the darn time. I bought the only case that anyone makes for it, and I like the color, it only comes in red, but the texture is rubbery and it keeps the phone from closing properly. I think it's fair to mention since both are TMO products. Call quality is good. Radio seem ok, I went to an area of poor coverage and it performed poorly, as expected. In town I get fast LTE and that is why I updated from the Relay. Can't say it's an upgrade as it's on the same OS. How, in 2015, I managed to buy a new phone still running Jelly Bean as stock is a mystery. It was probably a miracle that the Relay got JB, qwerty phones are the pariah devices. Bets on this phone getting an update? Slim to none. A custom ROM may be in my future. Anyway 3 stars and please, please make a qwerty phone that has Android L or M. The camera shutter is fast, I do like that better than the Relay. I very much miss the center Samsung button, it's really hard to find the power button on this phone. I may go back to Samsung. If they will make a Relay 2, lol. The GPS gets a fix fast. May 23, 2015
    Rated 4 out of 5 by love it dont miss the internal storage, but I have a large sd card. i love this phone. i hope it lasts for years April 20, 2015

    First, review the eligibility requirements to SIM unlock your phone. When you are ready and meet the requirements, you can contact us.

    In most cases, the answer is yes. The first step is to check your phone to see if it’s compatible, and to find out what SIM card it uses. Then, you’ll simply select that SIM card and a plan. Once you receive your new SIM card in the mail, you’ll be ready to go.

    You may pay off the full cost of your phone (and any other devices included in your Equipment Installment Plan) early. If you do, you’ll enjoy monthly savings even sooner. To pay off your phone, you will need to call Customer Care or visit a T-Mobile retail store.

    Yes! When you purchase any of our new phones we’ll give you a great price for your old one. Just tell us the make, model and condition of your old phone and we’ll give you a quote for your trade-in value.

Within 3 billing cycles, you’ll receive a credit to your account for the amount of the trade‐in value.

    In most cases, yes. Transferring your number to T-Mobile is easy—it usually takes 24 hours or less. Simply check if your number is eligible to be transferred, and we’ll take care of the rest!

    Check online

    If your number can be transferred, then we’ll contact your previous phone company to complete the transfer with your authorization

    To upgrade early, you’ll need to pay off your entire Equipment Installment Plan. You can do this by calling Customer Care or visiting a T-Mobile retail store.

    Yes. You once your phone is paid off, it’s paid off. From that point on you will only pay be billed for the T-Mobile rate plan, and services, or features you’ve chosen.

    When your new phone arrives simply follow the manufacturer’s set-up procedure and start using it. If you purchased a new T-Mobile SIM card to use in your own device, you will need to insert the new card and then you are good to go.

    You can upgrade your phone at any time. If you have an Equipment Installment Plan (EIP) you’ll need to pay that off first, then you’re free to select a new phone. It’s as easy as that. If you cancel wireless service, remaining balance on phone becomes due.

    To find out if you’re eligible for a rebate or a promotion all you need to do is answer a few simple questions.

    Get started

    Other carriers recover the cost of the phone with higher recurring monthly rate plan charges. Their customers continue to pay higher monthly rates even after the phone is paid off. Only T-Mobile offers a plan that automatically lowers the cost of the monthly bill when the phone is paid off.

    We offer free, overnight shipping on certain new phones and devices. Otherwise, we will send your purchase using standard 2-4 business days shipping. Look for special promotions where all phones and devices include free, overnight shipping.

    No. When you group phones into a family plan when purchasing on, you must either pay for all of them up front, or over time.

    No. If you choose to pay over time, your payments will be interest-free.

    You must purchase insurance within the first 14 days of buying a new device. To learn more about Premium Handset Protection Insurance or to learn about our other bundled features simply follow the link.

    Learn more about Premium Handset Protection

    If you cancel your service, you still need to pay off the remaining balance of the device.

    Unlike other carriers that give you a discounted rate on the phone up front and then bury the costs in your monthly bill, we charge you the full retail price. In order to make payments more manageable, qualifying new and current customers can take advantage of our Equipment Installment Plan (EIP).

    Here's how phone payments work:

    EIP (Equipment Installment Plan) pricing allows qualifying customers to get a new phone with an initial down payment and make monthly payments on the phone for 20 months with no interest charges. For example, if you purchased a new phone for $550 and put $150 down, you pay $20/month for 20 months, plus the low monthly cost of your Value Plan. Value Plan pricing is only available at T-Mobile.

    The following restrictions apply to all EIPs:

    • Non-Value plans, T‐Mobile Monthly4G prepaid plans and certain business accounts are not eligible for EIPs.
    • Customers in Washington, DC and Puerto Rico are not eligible for EIPs.
    • The minimum required purchase for an EIP is $19.99.
    • Due to state regulations, Idaho, Kansas, Maine, West Virginia and Wyoming do not allow purchases on a 24‐month EIP.
    • If you leave T-Mobile you’re still obligated to pay off the remaining balance of the device.

    Learn more about our Equipment Installment Plan

    Depending on which rate plan you choose, you may also be charged an add a line fee; see rate plan for details. Taxes and shipping will also be applied to your order total.

    Whether you choose to pay for your device up front today, or pay over time, you can upgrade your device at any time. If your current device has not yet been paid off, you will need to continue to make payments on the existing balance. For the well-qualified buyer, pay over time pricing will spread interest-free payments over 24 months. If you cancel wireless service, remaining balance on phone becomes due.

    You need a credit check for a couple of reasons. First, if you are applying for an Equipment Installment Plan (EIP) it’s standard practice for us to check your credit. If you want to keep your existing phone number we need to determine if it’s eligible to be transferred.

    Just like all other wireless carriers, T-Mobile has to charge enough to cover the cost of the phone. The difference is that T-Mobile separates the cost of the phone from the cost of the service. That means T-Mobile customers finish paying for their phone as soon the actual cost is paid off—and their monthly bill automatically drops.
