April 07, 2021
Get iPhone 12 on us with iPhone 11 trade‑in, or half‑off iPhone 12 with the trade‑in of most older iPhone models.

BELLEVUE, Wash. — April 7, 2021 — T-Mobile (NASDAQ: TMUS) just unveiled the company’s latest Un-carrier move, a sweeping set of initiatives that mark the beginning of the #5GforAll era. T-Mobile’s Great Free 5G Phone Upgrade includes a free 5G smartphone. And iPhone lovers can get in on the fun too. Here’s how it breaks down:

  • Get iPhone 12 on us — for free — with the trade-in of iPhone 11.
  • Get half off iPhone 12 with the trade-in of most older iPhone models — iPhone 7 through 10.
  • Get half off iPhone 12 mini with trade-in of the older iPhones— all the way back to the original! Still using an iPhone 5s? That works. iPhone 4? Yep. iPhone 3GS? That one also.

… all via 24 monthly bill credits. Simple. The trade-in must be paid off and in working condition. No add-a-line or port in required.

Over the past few years, billions of dollars have been spent to build 5G networks. Billions more have gone for ads touting the promise of a 5G-powered future. But for the 92% of Americans who don’t have a 5G phone as of the start of this year,[1] no 5G phone means no 5G experience. Now, T-Mobile is solving that by upgrading America to 5G.

But hurry because this iPhone offer is only available for a limited time from April 18 through May 1.

The elegantly designed iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 mini feature an advanced dual-camera system, edge-to-edge Super Retina XDR displays for a more immersive viewing experience, and the powerful Apple-design A14 Bionic chip, the fastest chip in a smartphone. And, you can rock every inch of T-Mobile’s 5G network, America’s largest, fastest and most reliable.
