    Rated 2 out of 5 by Horrible camera! If you want a phone with a high quality camera, I would recommend to get something else. Yeah, it's pretty average for the price but it seems like a downgraded smartphone. It's average. 5 megapixel camera? Pretty disappointing. November 24, 2014
    Rated 5 out of 5 by Great quality at an affordable price I didn't want to spend a ton of money on a high end phone. I was tired of low end phones that lag and freeze all the time. The Galaxy Avant is perfect! It's a great mid range device that looks and feels very similar to the Galaxy 4! At 16GB internal memory and 1.5 RAM the phone is incredibly smooth. Prefect size for one handed use. I couldn't be happier unless Samsung produced this phone for Windows too as I enjoy using but Android and Windows! November 23, 2014
    Rated 1 out of 5 by Not the best Samsung phone My friends are having a hard time hearing me on this phone and the battery runs down really fast, the camera is not great. I like the feature where you can signal to your love one's when you need help. November 23, 2014
    Rated 2 out of 5 by you get what you pay for Was given the avant from account retention after having multiple problems with a iphone 5c. In the six weeks i've had the phone i've noticed the speaker is very low when trying to listen to music, almost can't hear unless turned all the way up. The mic is very tiny on the bottom of the phone and people can't hear you unless you keep the phone pressed right against your cheek. Some good programs from samsung like s-health and drivelink will not work with this phone. And for a day had the phone rebooting about every 20 minutes. I had to remove the battery, sim card and sd card with the phone powered off a couple hours and it fixed itself. Had tried a full cache clear with tech. support that didn't help. Will be replacing soon with the S5 to get all the samsung programs. Also constantly has a tab crash needing a reload when on the web browser. And the camera is terrible. November 17, 2014
    Rated 3 out of 5 by Not the best phone out there ... I got this phone on October 4 . I was excited and satisfied at the beginning but now as I sit there waiting minutes for a simple app to open I regret buying this product . The phone isn't even up to date with Android 4.4.4 . It is very slow at times . The software features are very ugly and I downloaded third party launchers and keyboards because of it . Display is horrible ! When I compared it to the display of my old Moto G it was obvious that the Moto G was at least 50% more vivid . And also small things within the phone are just annoying to me like how the app icons are blurry and the emojis are blurry . The software on this phone needs some serious updating . And I also notice that this phone gets scratches very easily . I had a small but obvious scratch on the screen within two weeks and it still annoys me today . And now there is a small scrape on the home button that is very bothering to me as well . There are barely any good or attractive cases in the market for this phone . Overall a pretty bad experience using this phone . I just can't wait until Christmas . Apple here I come . November 16, 2014
    Rated 4 out of 5 by Avant So far enjoying this phone. The apps are nice and the accessibility is easy. I love the emoticons. :) November 12, 2014
    Rated 4 out of 5 by all around great phone for the money I love the phone but sometimes in the middle of looking things up it gives a pop up saying sorry tab has crashed! This is really irritating since you have to start over. November 11, 2014
    Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Phone I have had this phone about 3 months and i just love it from day one. This phone is easy to use, has a great amount of space to download what ever. If ur a heavy game user battery will drain fast, but other then.that it has a great battery life. Just an amazing phone for an amazing price! November 10, 2014

    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. If you like the offer we’ll send you a prepaid shipping label and you can send us your old phone along with the receipt from your new one.

    Get started

    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 T-Mobile.com, 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.

    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.
