      No, as it’s not sold in a T-Mobile channel, only Best Buy.

      Ric, only best buy sells the nexus s, so you would need to ask best buy, not T-Mobile

      You should know however that by calling in, this will not and mostly likely won’t aopply to everyone, so stating what you just did is irrelevant. Because you were able to do something, does not mean the next person will be able to do the same thing. I would recommend that people just log in to their my tmobile acct, click on upgrade phone, and see what theyqualify for. Calling customer care jsut to see where your upgrade status is, is a waste of time, and also one reason why so many customers like myself who may really need assistance, have to wait on hold for so long.

    Folks, check your eligibility before going to the store by calling customer care. Also, if you had upgraded in the last 22 mos and returned the device in your buyer’s remorse period make sure that the tenure reflects that you are at or beyond 22 mos or the store will not be able to help you! Save your time and energy (and customer care’s) by being prepared!

    $30 data plan required for free phones. $

    • MainlandKing

      bob, what is wrong with $30.00 unlimited data? If you can not afford for any reason, T-Mobile does sell other devices that do not require data, you know? As the old addage goes, you can’t have everything for nothing buddy. So if you don’t want the $30.00, don’t get a smartphone. Remeber that you can add the $15.00 web for 200mb or even the promotional is what I would go with for $10.00 if you know you are not going to use much internet. Id rather pay $30.00 for unlimited, versus going to Verizon or ATT and not get unlimited, as well as Sprint, and having to pay extra for their 4g network, which is in my opinion, even more ludicrous

        Bob is not saying he can’t afford a phone, he is saying what every wise journalist on the Net has been saying over the past year, don’t get sucked into an attractive subsidized price for a phone, you have to look at the true cost of the phone, which is the cost of talk and data for the next two years.

        The carriers are no different than the printer manufacturers, for example. By now, of course, people are catching on as to why manufacturers sell what used to be $500 printers for $100. It’s because they get you on the ink refills (very few people shop on eBay for refills, they walk into Staples and pay $50 for a four cartridge set. And many people do that once a month. So the actual cost of the printer is more like $600 a year, not the $100 one paid for the printer).

        And what else Bob is implicitly saying is that one is locking himself in to a two year contract to pay $30 for data. That benefits the carrier, not the end user. The people who understand the concept of locking one’s self into a two year deal like that are the old timers, those of us paying $15 to $20 for unlimited data. AFAIK those people are not in any rush to get an additional line/phone, at least not at these prices.

        As I said in my post that was torn down by TMoNews, people really need to think about the total cost of these phones, not just the word “free” upfront.

        Sidenote: This is a good deal, however, if you get the most expensive phone T-Mobile has. That’s because if you amortize the $500 to $600 you didn’t pay over the two year contract, that’s like getting data for $20 to $25 monthly.

        • Mainlandking

          @ its michaelnotnike, you trying to over think it! That’s not the best way to look at this scenario, bc what trumps what you are saying is the mere fact that every big carrier is primarily doing the same thing. REQUIRING data. What would make sense, to your defense, is if someone were to buy the phone in at full price to avoid the contract. Btw, if you have a grandfathered plan, I highly doubt tmobile would make you go higher data wise. At least I have not had to do such thing. So all this breaks down into one logical explanation of choices. As a customer, do not worry about a retail price of a phone is you are getting a discount. We not negotiating cars here. Secondly, if you want a smartphone, then you will need to conform to the policies listed for data or don’t get a smartphone, that simple.

        • Anonymous

          Great points.

          Having been buying phones when they cost $500, where its only “feature” was that it was the smallest in the world (Motorola Vader, Star Tac) this is one person who is not concerned about buying phones. Matter of fact, in my house it’s the one thing I kind of go nuts on. I keep my notebooks and desktops for years, but I love buying phones (I still have about 50 of them in my “cell phone museum” aka boxes in the basement).

          That said, read anywhere on the Net, (Wall Street Journal, Fortune, Forbes, etc.) they all are saying the same thing. People in the past have failed to look at the total cost of a phone, mainly because of discount come-ons and being able to pay that $1500+ in small monthly payments. But with the tanked economy people are looking where they have spent in excess and where they can cut.

          Two industries that are taking a big hit are cable and wireless, e.g., people are going back to basic cable and using Netflix for movies; and the tanked economy is why we are the beneficiaries of the wireless war. (E.g. the new default subsidized price for superphones is $200. The last time carriers tinkered with pricing debuting phones for more, that I can recall, was the Touch Pro2 from T-Mobile. That was $350 on a two year contract. Now people complain if a super phone is $225.)

          Yes, every carrier is now requiring data plans with phones, but that’s a fairly new industry-wide gimmick because people were buying phones and not getting data. So now carriers are coming out with ways to force data on people, you want the super phone you have to pay for data.

          As I said elsewhere, data saved the carriers’ collective butts. And so did Facebook and Twitter. After all, those 500 million FB users all have to stay up-to-date on their friends’ uploads.

          But to repeat, I don’t see this working out in the long term for carriers. People are continuing to cut back and it’s not worth $30 a month to simply log on to FB a few times a week from wherever a user can’t get WiFi. (In fact, another reason data became mandatory is because people were simply using free WiFi, from Starbucks, for example, to log on to FB and get updates. Why pay $30 monthly when one can get a coffee and use free WiFi.)

          Lastly, what I am discussing here is not grandfathered plans, it’s about new customers or those people who want to add a line. If adding a line, it’s at the new rates. You are right that if one upgrades a phone the old plan is grandfathered in. But I see that ending by next year.

          I opined a year or so ago that eventually, by 2012 I predicted, T-Mobile will do away with all unlimited plans (unless one is willing to pay $100 for it) and go the way of AT&T. The money is simply too tempting for T-Mobile to remain the genuine value carrier that it is. Regardless of what we think, T-Mobile’s shareholders and investors are going to insist that TMOUS move to tiered data pricing. When that happens our grandfathers are going to be buried six feet under.

          IMHO these free phone promotions are a big hit because it allows people to get a phone that they otherwise could not afford. (I know people who make $150,000 a year and will not buy phones because they have time left on their contracts and cannot afford to buy even a $200 handset, much less a $500 superphone).

    i’d rather have a $200 nexus s with a $10/month plan than one of these and be forced into $30/month. Most everyplace I spend a lot of time has wi-fi, so really no point for the 5g/unlimited. $30*24months=$720. $10*24months+200=$440, so if my math is right and I don’t need 3g use, nexus s is much cheaper and a better phone.

          16 gigs is not a lot when you consider the device is supposed to be a multimedia beast… Videos take up a lot of room… It’s not necessary but definitely not impractical… And flash on a camera is over rates… My HD7 has dual LED flash as does the EVO… my Vibrant takes way better pictures than both…

      lol tzones?! is that like wicked slow internet?

      • Cheap

        it’s the same internet that you overpay for with the smartphone 4g internet

        • Droo

          Exactly how is it the same? Even with your welfare hack you only get Edge speed. Your best bet is to keep your food stamp net price and get a used smartphone and steal your neighbors wifi.

    Bad deal for anyone who already has <$30/mo unlimited data and wants one of the phones that requires $30/mo data plan.

    • http://twitter.com/gatodelrio limonysal

      why?

    • HIM

      if you already have the unlimited $30 web then its probably to early for you to upgrade anyway. If you have the $35 (older unlim web/txt) plan then u could potentially save some money. As long as u either have unlimited web or get unlimited web then u can use this promo.

      What are you talking about? It’s the perfect deal, you don’t add anything to your bill and you get a great phone for free…

    ooops…. forgot to mention. I would be looking at getting the G2 or the MT4G.

    Also, customer service said i have to get the $30 plan, but can change to $10 once the rebate is completed. Any truth to this?

    Thanks….

      Yes, the MiR requires the $30 web for some devices, but once the MiR is accepted there is nothing stopping you from switching the data plan.

      • HIM

        except the rep gets screwed out of his/her hard earned commission!

    • Yungsir2

      No truth to that its a required data feature in the past you could change it not anymore though

  • Really, no 4g?

    Checked my online status for upgrade as I am at 24 months. best price for any smartphone is $99 bucks. Do TMO screws legacy customers again?

    • 4G, REALLY?

      The online offer is different than what the retail store is offering.

      • Really, no 4g

        Wow, you mean customer loyalty does mean something? TMO has been negative with me at 21months on the last deal where I was one day outside the free G2 deal. I have also tried to get them to lower the 149 pricing on the G2 after that and they wouldn’t budge. Maybe I am just getting stubborn reps. But they really don’t have 4g and everyone paying the $30 data plans is just subsidizing it. Sprint does the same thing G2.

    • SpiceBuyer

      I called customer service, said “cancel” at the computer prompt to get transferred to the retention department, noted the in store deal and the fact that I’m an existing TMO customer who lives 2 hours from the nearest store. I then asked them to match the in store price and they did so without batting an eye. HD7 on the way for free.

        Same here, but they said it possibly won’t get to me until the 23rd…..bummer

    • Mel

      You’re not getting screwed… the promo is in store only. Go there and you’re golden.

    This promo is for two reasons:

    1) T-Mobile always runs some kind of special in response to iPhone debuts. It must work because T-Mobile keeps doing it .

    2) MWC is happening. All the new phones will be announced. Contracts for holiday 2011 phones will be signed. So it’s time to get rid of old inventory and also lock people in to two year contracts with the old phones. This assures that come the holiday season the dual-core phones, for example, will attract new customers. Those buying now will in November have to buy an additional line, pay full retail, or stay put.

    The adventurous can do what I and some others do, sell our handsets and wait on the fence to see what washes up on the shores of online tech.

    I just sold my Vibrant and am making do with my HD2. (And have a G1 and Pearl 8120 if I sell the HD2).

    It’s going to be a fun 8 months, seeing all the great stuff coming out (including the hybrid tablet/netbooks debuting in a few months).

    All that said, I might cave and BUY a Samsung 4G phone (at full retail, because I don’t do two year contracts). 8 months is a really long time to sit and do nothing in terms of phone shopping.

    • Really, no 4g

      Don’t buy the samsung. The have some neat features but I gave up my Epic for an Evo and don’t regret it. I have had friends really laud old LG phones and think I will wait for the Optimus 2X.

      • ATL Guy

        The 2x still has no verified US release date.

    • Yaddayaddasomething

      Well, that’s the name of the phone game. There’s always going to be that newer and better phones. Before you know it you’ll find yourself in the same position come next year February, wishing to dump your Optimus 2x or whatever phone there is in the future. Maybe there will be slide outs with front facing cameras, Quad Core Processors, etc. But hey, that’s why there’s people like me selling phones 5 days a week! People want the latest and greatest!

    My sister and bro-in-law have finally jumped to smartphones via this promo. Both have MT4G’s now… and T-mo is having a promotion on its 3000 minute family plan. With unlimited text and data, it’s $149.99… with my dad’s dumbphone line, it’s $154.99. They were paying $110 a month for 1000 anytime minutes on three dumbphones and unlimited text before… pretty sweet deal for T-mo customers.

    • Ihookedariel

      Awesome deal!!!

    • Yaddayaddasomething

      And just to add to what Uansari1 mentioned, lets say that Uansari1 wanted unlimited web on that 3rd line, it’s only $20 instead of $30!

    • ATL Guy

      That is a great great plan!

  • Jake

    Glad I’m not eligible for full upgrade yet. Every time tmo does one of these sales, almost immediately a handful of new phones are released. Plus waiting for a better selection of 4g devices

  • http://twitter.com/gatodelrio limonysal

    just got back form the t-mobile store – my husband and I got a myTouch 4G (him) and a G2 (me)! rebates stick especially that they put it on a VISA card but oh well! can’t beat FREE!

    Are you joking, i can’t help getting one as a Valentine’s Day Gift. According to tmonews, t-mobile’s 3g network is faster than verizon which has a good coverage.

    I’ll wait…the HTC Pyramid is coming out this summer.

      It hasn’t been confirmed for T-Mobile USA.

        We’ll find out this week with MWC…I like what the sources are saying. I’m sure it’ll be in T-Mobile’s line-up.

    The peeps i know who went to take advantage of this deal just walked out after they found out they had to wait for a rebate. In this economy not many people can pop down 2 hunny and wait for it back. One of my peeps said that there was a huge line, and only 2 people walked out with phones because of the rebate. Better luck next time tmobile. I’m still loving my MyTouch 4g that I paid full price for. Worth every cent!

  • droid_guy

    Was hoping to get my gf a new G2 because she really likes the phone but had to walk away after asking for a $200 upfront and then rebate. No sorry, sir – no longer interested. Now, she can prob just jumped on the ifon wagon with Verizon.

    Remember, once you become a T-Mobile customer, the company screws you to the wall. Look at all of the myTouch 3G Slide customers who T-Mobile has been telling, for 9 months, that they will get the Android 2.2 update “soon”, which will fix the apps to SD card issue, and put in the WiFi calling the phone should have had from the get go. T-Mobile’s motto: “What have you customers done to give us more money lately?”
