Why it matters

There’s never been a better time to trade up. It’s one of T-Mobile’s best deals of 2018 and it won’t last long.

Who it's for

Anyone ready to trade in and trade up to any of the newest smartphones.


 If you’ve been suffering from new phone FOMO, wait no more because today, T-Mobile (NASDAQ: TMUS) announced its most amazing trade in deals of the year.  Starting Friday, October 19, bring your eligible trade-in to T-Mobile and trade it up for a new Samsung Galaxy S9, Galaxy S8, or the LG G7 ThinQ™ and more for as little as $10 per month!

But wait, there’s more. These new phones were designed for unlimited data, and of course T-Mobile – America’s fastest unlimited network – has you covered there. The deal gets sweeter when you add four lines of T-Mobile Essentials -- you can get four new phones AND unlimited for just $40 per line per month with autopay! That’s $30 per line for four lines of unlimited T-Mobile Essentials and $10 per line for each eligible device.

“Everyone knows we’ve got America’s fastest 4G LTE network and now we’ve got some of the best deals of the year on new smartphones. We’re not messing around,” said John Legere, CEO at T-Mobile. “Forty dollars a month will only get you data on Dumb and Dumber’s congested networks. At T-Mobile, $40 a month will get you a hot new smartphone AND unlimited, so you can unleash everything that new phone is capable of doing!”

To get this sweet deal, simply bring in your eligible trade in to T-Mobile and, depending on the condition and model of your trade, the Un-carrier will give you up to $360 via bill credits towards the purchase of your new device. And when you qualify for T-Mobile’s new 36-month Equipment Installment Plan (EIP), depending on model, that’s as little as $10 a month for your new smartphone! And you can use your trade-in credit towards almost every smartphone the Un-carrier sells from Samsung, LG and more. 

But What Plan to Choose?

T-Mobile Essentials is perfect for those who just want the basics: unlimited talk, text and smartphone data in the U.S. for only $30 per line for a family of four with autopay. Starting Friday, well-qualified customers with trade-in and T-Mobile’s new 36-month EIP can get 4 lines of unlimited T-Mobile Essentials and four new phones for as little as $40 a month per line with autopay.

For those who want more, T-Mobile ONE is the Un-carrier’s most popular option and just $10 more per line, taxes and fees included, for a family of four with autopay. T-Mobile ONE includes all the extras – the industry’s best travel benefits, a personal Team of Experts for all your customer care needs, Netflix included for families, unlimited mobile hotspot and so much more. Starting Friday, well-qualified customers with trade-in and T-Mobile’s new 36-month EIP can get 4 lines of T-Mobile ONE and four new phones for as little as $50 a month per line with autopay.

And for members of the military, their families and their small businesses, the offer is even sweeter with  T-Mobile ONE Military. T-Mobile ONE Military includes everything in T-Mobile ONE – all at T-Mobile’s biggest discount ever for families with half off family lines. That means with trade-in, it’s as little as $35/month per line (with autopay) for four lines of unlimited AND four new phones.

New and existing customers can trade in their eligible devices and get this great deal at any T-Mobile retail store, or by calling T-Mobile starting this Friday, October 19. To learn more, visit
