News #GetOutoftheRed Top QA

What phones are eligible?

The following devices are eligible:

  • iPhone SE, 6s, 6s Plus, 7, 7 Plus
  • Google Pixel, Pixel XL

What about other phones?

Phones need certain software to be globally compatible, and some phones don’t yet have that software. We’re working with OEMs to make more phones compatible and help more people #GetOutoftheRed.

Why doesn’t this work for AT&T or Sprint?

AT&T and Sprint must unlock their devices, and those phones won’t work right away on T-Mobile’s network. But, AT&T and Sprint customers can still switch to T-Mobile. We’ll pay off their early termination fees (ETFs) or outstanding phone payments via prepaid card when they get a new phone on T-Mobiles Equipment Installment Plan (EIP). And for a limited time, we’re waiving the trade-in requirement for Carrier Freedom.

How is #GetOutoftheRed different from Carrier Freedom?

There’s no trade-in required to get your iPhone or Pixel paid off, and you can keep that device to use on the T-Mobile network when you switch and sign up for T-Mobile ONE and Premium Device Protection Plus.
