It’s official! T-Mobile & Sprint have merged!
Sprint support pages are available for existing Sprint accounts here. If you are looking for more, visit our Migration Center.

The T-Mobile Refer-a-Friend program allows existing customers to receive a $50 Virtual Express Prepaid MasterCard card for referring friends and family to open new postpaid accounts with T-Mobile.




Am I eligible to make referrals?

You can participate in the Refer-a-Friend program if:

  • You're a T-Mobile or Sprint postpaid customer (including businesses) with 12 lines or fewer lines on your account. 
  • Your account has been active for at least 90 days and is in good standing.
  • You have a T-Mobile or Sprint ID.

The Refer-a-Friend program isn't available to

  • Customers adding new lines to existing T-Mobile accounts
  • Prepaid accounts
  • Mobile Internet-only accounts
  • Government customers
  • T-Mobile for Business accounts with 13 or more lines
  • T-Mobile employee accounts
  • Port-ins from prepaid carriers
  • Port-ins from T-Mobile providers, including Sprint, T-Mobile Prepaid, Metro by T-Mobile, Boost, Shentel, or mobile virtual network operators that use the T-Mobile network.


Who can I refer and what do they need to do?

You can refer anyone who hasn't had T-Mobile service within the previous 90 days, and your friend and family must accept your referral before activating with T-Mobile to qualify.

To qualify as a referral, your friends and family must:

  1. Accept your referral within 30 days by following your unique referral link to a website and completing the referral form.
  2. Activate a new postpaid account with at least 1 voice line and port-in a number from another postpaid carrier within 45 days of accepting your referral. The number ported in must be the same one provided with the referral form.
  3. Maintain service in good standing (active and current) for 30 days after account activation.


Sounds good. How many people can I refer?

We'll reward you for the first 10 referrals, up to $500 per calendar year, but you are welcome to refer as many friends and family as you wish. You receive one $50 Virtual Express Prepaid MasterCard card per qualifying new account you refer.
