    Rated 5 out of 5 by this product has great features Yes I love this phone it works very good it a good phone to and I wish ya'll had the gold one when I bought this phone Thursday I over the gold one better they all the same the black, white, and gold one maybe the next time when I need other one thank you t- mobile for this phone the best one yet August 17, 2014
    Rated 5 out of 5 by great!! Love this phone. Just upgraded from the Galaxy S3. I loved that phone two but this phone is better. I love how bright the screen is and how crisp it looks. Also love how if I'm texting or on Facebook a call doesn't interrupt my whole screen just shows up in a little box. And it has caller id, so it shows the name of whose calling too. If they aren't a contact. Love it best choice! But the store I went to was out of gold :( still a great phone. August 10, 2014
    Rated 5 out of 5 by Great phone for a super-user! After 3 consecutive HTC phones that I loved, I was reluctant to switch to Samsung, but I am so glad I did. The ability to customize just about everything, the features, camera, and way it's organized is amazing. Perfect for someone who is using it constantly all day and all night. I play games, take pictures, use GPS, and am on social media constantly and I get a solid 15 hours without running to a charger and good 15% left at the end of the day. I'm super impressed with this phone. I feel like it was made for me! I also love that it's not too big, it still fits in my pocket. The water resistant feature is also pretty cool but I'm too afraid to use it! Something that I hate is that the phone is so dang hard to see outside. The screen looks black in almost any kind of sunlight, so I constantly have to look for shade when I want to see something on my phone. But, I love that you can hide the preloaded apps and get rid of the magazine thing. There are so many useless preloaded things so that was a nice option. S Voice/Car Mode is really only the Samsung feature I use, it is so easy and such a helpful feature. It was fun to customize and I love using it, I can't wait to have I for the next few years!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by Touchwiz not great but otherwise excellent See my review of the LG G3 under STAlex. I picked this up after a bad experience with the G3. While I think Touchwiz is too limiting, I was liberated after installing Nova Launcher. That made all the difference. This phone does everything I need now and has amazing battery life. The only thing I don't like about this phone still is the set buttons that limit customization for left or right-handed use....I'm adjusting to not using the phone in my right hand now. Love the thin profile and solid featureset. Feels like an old friend and fits nicely in my pocket even though I will get a holster and case for it soon. August 8, 2014
    Rated 5 out of 5 by the s5 is a great phone fast as heck, huge screen! I had a s3 before I got the s5 big big difference huge screen great graphics fast as heck if u can get this phone! August 7, 2014
    Rated 5 out of 5 by firmware upgrade, don't do it! Bought in April worked great until uploaded firmware upgrade 35.40 MB mid July (Released date June). Caused overheating with few minutes of screen usage. Caused network dropping, multiple malfunctions. Factory reset did not correct. Just got replacement from T-Mobile after complaining, Works great. Has May 23 firmware. They are sending update notification, Wont Touch It. August 3, 2014
    Rated 3 out of 5 by expensive phone This phone is kinda little expensive than I thought. Lot of apps installed already that I don't need it, or I don't want to use it. August 2, 2014
    Rated 2 out of 5 by I regret this purchase My phone jams up constantly, is slow to respond, needs to be restarted regularly, and it glitchy in other ways as well. The most annoying thing about this incredibly expensive piece of junk is that it mutes calls. I will be in the middle of a phone conversation, and it just mutes the calls, jams up, and will not let me unmute it. The call quality is pretty good, but the speaker phone crackles and sounds like junk. I also got an M8 for my wife. It doesn't have some of the bells and whistles that the GS5 has, but it is a very well made phone that just plain works and I feel like we got what we paid for. Having the ability to compare the two side by side for a few months has been eye opening. It's got a lot of amazing features and tons of potential. Maybe I have a lemon. Maybe T-Mobile puts too much bloatware on it. I don't know. But I really regret spending this kind of money on this phone. I'm selling this phone on eBay soon and replacing it with something else. I'll take a loss in order to have calls I can complete without have to hang up and call back repeatedly. July 31, 2014

    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.
