    Rated 5 out of 5 by perfect baby version of samsung galaxy My friend added my line to her account.....she was gonna get me an LG, but they didn't have them in stock, so I picked out the Avant. I am so happy the LG was out of stock.....this phone is so great......the only problem was adjusting the volume....but I got that taken care of...the avant is everything I was looking for.....not too big, like the galaxy, it comes with alot pre installed, which I don't really use, but it has great storage space, good call quality, and google voice....which I am really grooving advice, this phone is worth the money. September 26, 2014
    Rated 3 out of 5 by Get a Galaxy Instead I had the Galaxy 3. Loved it but it didn't love swimming. I DOWNGRADED to the Avant. It is set up almost like a galaxy but just off enough to make using this phone maddening. This phone feels like it should have been released in 2010 not 2014. Everything on it is inferior to any Galaxy. This is the smart phone for people that don't need a smart phone. It's a solid phone and I'm a no frills sort of person but this is too basic even for me. I can't recommend the Galaxy enough over this. Better interface, easier to use, better camera, better calendar, louder sound. If you have never used a Samsung phone you may like it but if you have stay clear. September 24, 2014
    Rated 5 out of 5 by My husband loves it I encouraged to have my husband get this phone because he had issues with another phone he had. He really enjoys this phone, he has had no issues. It is such great quality with a great price!! I am waiting for my avant in the mail. September 22, 2014
    Rated 1 out of 5 by gets too hot Ease of use. I can operate any functioning phone. But this phone is LITERALLY THE WORST phone I have ever owned. I can navigate through it with extreme ease. But the phone gets so hot that I can't even allow my toddlers to talk to their grandparents in a different state. This is my third avant and they all do the same thing. Even without other applications running. Talk about the glitch in on it. Wow. Battery life. Is functional as long as you don't try to run a bunch of applications running at once. Features. They are alright for the most part. A bunch of cap that comes pre installed taking up almost 6 gigs of your 16 gigs that you barely even use. If I want to partition out the hardware on my phone. I want that to be my choice not a pre-installed choice. Camera. Alost as bad as a flip phone. So what that tells ya... lol Definitely would not recommend this phone to anyone that is a heavy tech user. Maybe for a beginner phone but other than that, I would pass on it. September 22, 2014
    Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent Phone Price Wise, No Freeze Very Solid great phone, Excellent performance, but it falls short in Camera Quality. I only have two complaints despite of these two I yet give it a 5 star. Why doesn't get connected to TV with a Cable ? It seems that it doesn't support HML which is very disappointing to me , secondly why doesn't it have a light sensor ? I have to adjust the screen brightness manually :( . Camera Quality is okay for everyday picture taking, but if you wanna go to an event , bring a Digital camera. To me Performance is what it matters , and this phone has got it all. September 21, 2014
    Rated 4 out of 5 by overall good phone i just recently purchased this and much to my surprise this is a decent does everything i really need without being a overpriced high end device.i had a gs3 for 2 yrs. and i was just about to buy a gs5 until i spent a little time researching this phone and i'm glad i did.i'm not sure on how the battery life is yet but regardless it was a good choice.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by I dislike this product immensely Not a satisfied customer!!!! After having had a previous Samsung cell phone, I was hoping the Galaxy Avant upgrade would be a better experience. It's not! Two things in particular about this product don't work for me. I work in an industry where I have 25 to 30 different events each week that I need to mark as "repeat" in the calendar. There is no such capability in this phone's calendar, requiring me to key in every single event from week to week! Horrible! I also have to go to a separate app (which you only get a 30 day trial to) in order to see my visual voicemails. Otherwise, if I receive a new voicemail, I have to listen to every single previous voicemail to get to the new one. Again. Horrible! I will never recommend this cell phone to anybody.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by I love this Phone! By tomorrow I will officially have had this phone for two weeks and I think it is one of the smartest purchases I made. Prior to this, I had a Mytouch and thought I would miss the flexibility of having both a keyboard and touch screen but the features and quality of the phone has made up for it. The battery life is amazing and can last a full day and+ despite checking emails, streaming videos or having numerous conversations. I like that if I am filling out an application, the phone automatically zooms areas that appear small to fill. I like that it shows the number count of windows that are opened. Youtube videos are extremely clear, internet searches come up promptly. Even though the phone was advertised to me as a simple phone, there is alot more features to the phone that I am learning that is not included in the manual. I am impressed that the cost was very inexpensive for a well recognized brand that is elegant, which I didn't think would be possible. The camera is pretty good as well. September 18, 2014

    Customers currently under contract with another carrier are eligible for up to $650 per line (up to 5 lines; qualifying plan req’d).

    1. When transferring your number you can trade in your phones and tablets online or at any participating T-Mobile location and receive a credit up to $300 per device.
    2. Then, when you get your final bill listing your carrier’s Early Termination Fee (ETF) amounts, you simply send it to T-Mobile or submit it online at, and within 8 weeks you will receive a prepaid MasterCard covering your ETF amount up to $350 per line. The amount paid will not be more than the ETF amount your previous carriers charge for the type of device traded-in.

    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.

    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.

    Refurbished phones offered by T-Mobile have been inspected and tested to ensure they’re in good working order, and they all come with a limited 90-day warranty. They also come with the same return policy as our new devices: 20 days from the date of your order.

    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.
