    This is cool. I think (not sure) I saw Shaq using the MT4G during Saturday’s fun. My first thought was how he could do anything on it with ‘em hands!

    I am out of contract with a center of LA Zip Code.
    There is NO free offer today showing for me or other friends with center of LA Zip Codes.
    We would have to pay $99 plus fees. Boo!

    I wish they started offering discounts without extending a contract. Yeah, I know it’s not necessarily beneficial to them, but it’d be nice for some of us customers. I mean not necessarily free, but for instance. MyTouch 4G retail price: $449, they could have a sale where it’s only like $350 without contract or something. Let’s say they even had the $350 without contract deal, but if they had to have some sort of agreement it could be like to have a plan that’s subtotal is at least $60 per month with included data plan for even more plus or something like that. That’d be so nice. A boy can only dream -_-

      Something for nothing is a nice dream. Closest you’ll find to a free phone without a contract is Even More Plus. Even that ain’t free- just a more honest way of paying for your subsidy.

        It’s not really nothing. I mean most current phone’s you can’t really just use on any other network because of the 3G/4G bands unless you want to use them very limited with 2G “Edge.” I mean just think about it, we get our clothes, shoes, other gadgets on “sale” without a contract, why not phones? I mean they still would be getting our service, because like I said w/ a ” subtotal at least $60 or more per month”, & that you can barely use the phone’s like that outside of T-Mobile’s network to full extent. I honestly think it would help T-Mobile rather than hurt them. Lastly, it’s not like I said “Yeah… T-Mobile offer the MyTouch 4G for free without contract or contract extension.” All I said was simple price decrease for a limited time only.

          It’s a good idea man. And this particular cell phone company needs all of the good ideas it can get.

          Thanks, & they do

      T-Mobile doesn’t make ANYTHING off of the phones themselves, it’s all about the service. It wouldn’t be profitable in any way to offer a discount on phones without some type of contract or feature requirement to ensure they’d make something off of the endeavor.

        All I’m gonna say is read my statement again.

        Retailers sell merchandise below cost all the time to boost sales. They make up the difference with other merchandise. For example, I used to work in the receiving department at a WalMart. Last summer WM ran a promo for 24 pack Coke products for $5. WM paid Coca-Cola $5.48 a 24 pack. So WM was taking nearly a $50 LOSS on every 24 pack pallet they sold (each pallet contains 104 cases). The store I worked at wasn’t the busiest but we went through 3-4 pallets of 24 packs a day. So figure with the 7 day a week delivery, the store was losing $1400 a week on all the 24 packs that were sold. But it drew the customers in who bought other things. Tmobile could offer a discount on the retail price of the phone but still make money off the deal by talking you into accessories and such. Or even a data plan if you don’t already have one or have one of the grandfathered Web2go phone first plans that won’t work for a smartphone (most of the time). We had to upgrade my wife’s data plan from $10/mo for Web2go unlimited to the $15/200mb android plan for her Tmobile Comet and we paid the full retail for that phone on Tmobile.com, so Tmobile could have discounted the Comet by $50 and still made a profit over the life of our contract.

        T-mobile definitley makes money off a full price phone. You really think we pay HTC 450 for a mytouch 4g? More like 350.

        • http://tmonews.com David

          How sure are you on those numbers? Honestly, do you have inside info or is that speculation?

    they never care about the EXISTING COSTUMERS………….those are the ones who should get it for FREE WITHOUT CONTRACT EXTENSION …………………..#just saying

    • Marshall834

      Is there any evidence of this? It says with new two year agreement so one can only assume that means new and existing customers.

      • Derrickps3

        hell idk, i was just saying

    • GinaDee

      Giving away $500 equipment would be a bad business move.

      And it’s “customers,” not “costumers.” PT Halloween jobs don’t start till October.

    • helllllllo

      dude! existing customers? existing customers just had a 2 day ALL PHONES are free on the 11th and 12th? got 4 FREE mt4g’s for the fam and we had only been with TMO for a yr! you dont want a contract? stop whinning and fork out the 500 bucks…otherwise……

      • Bob

    where’s the “dislike” button….

    Called Tmo Customer Care to ask about this and they had no idea about it. Couldn’t find anything in their system about it and didn’t even know it existed – the lady thought I was making it up. Tough to take advantage of a promotion when the company doesn’t even know it’s going on.

    • http://tmonews.com David

      Well, what happened when you tried to do it online?

      • Really, no 4G

        I tried it online and it must be for new accounts only. Way to, once again, dis your exiting customers TMo!

      The offer said “WEB-ONLY”—why call customer care?!

    typical kinda like the free smartphone weekend that almost nobody in the store was able to take advantage of.

    Good luck getting 4G or even 3G for that matter in LA (West). I had to leave TMo for that reason. I waited patiently for a year but there was no improvement in service. I even went to their store in Santa Monica (Main) and the workers there told me that they had to go outside to set up new phones for customers and grab may be 1 bar of 3G signal. Also, even if you get 3G/4G in other areas, forget about going into any building as your signal drops like a sinking ship. Please note that this is not hating on TMo. I was with them for years in the east coast (city) with great service, but once I got the the west coast things went south fast and they just didn’t do anything to improve their service in a year. I’m also not in a remote area or the mountains.
