T-Mobile ending free iPhone 7 switcher deal early, will now run through March 9

iphone7tmo

Remember that free iPhone 7 switcher offer that T-Mobile launched last week? It was supposed to run through March 16, but T-Mo revealed today that it’s ending the promotion early.

The free iPhone 7 offer will now end tomorrow, March 9, so you’ve only got one more day to take advantage of it. As for why the deal is ending early, T-Mo says that it’s because “this offer is so hot.”

This deal offers a free iPhone 7 or a $100 iPhone 7 Plus to anyone that ports a number from another carrier onto T-Mobile and trades in a qualifying smartphone. The offer is open to new customers as well as existing subscribers on T-Mobile One or Simple Choice Unlimited plans, but keep in mind that you do need to port a number to T-Mo to qualify.

The phones that qualify for trade-in include the iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, iPhone 6s, iPhone 6s Plus, iPhone 7, iPhone 7 Plus, Samsung Galaxy S7, Samsung Galaxy S7 edge, and Samsung Galaxy S7 Active.

To take advantage of the deal, you’ll need to port your number to T-Mobile, trade in your existing device for credit, then buy an iPhone 7 or iPhone 7 Plus on EIP. You can then visit T-Mobile’s promos website and register with the code 17Q1APLTRADE, and you’ll receive a prepaid MasterCard in the mail that can be used to cover any down payment you made as well as the remaining cost of an iPhone 7 or leave $100 on the price of an iPhone 7 Plus.

This deal is available in T-Mobile stores, so if you’ve been thinking about taking advantage of it, you’ll want to get to a T-Mo shop tomorrow.

    Theyre ending the deal because its so “hot” . ROFL , give me a break. Youre ending the deal because you realized youre losing $$$$$$$$$

    • gmo8492

      Point being it was too hot…

      • onthegreenz

        if it makes you feel better i suppose…

    • steadymobb

      Yes… Meaning it’s a popular or “hot” deal

      • onthegreenz

        Its not a sustainable deal, it was never meant as a deal for the customers. And I am shocked no one is questioning the “UNCARRIER” for pulling it earlier, sounds like corporate greed to me..

        • steadymobb

          Eh. Who cares. You can’t get everything free all the time. Tmobile runs some great deals for their current customers all the time. They had some really good ones just in the last couple months.

        • onthegreenz

          What do you mean? Tmobiles entire uncarrier was all about giving sht away for free, from free pizzas to free stock. But in all seriousness, i have to wonder at what point will they actually be able to sell their service based on their service. Not because of ridiculous enticing offers that eat up net profit margins?

    • FatManChew

      Or they hit their goal for earnings season and can end it early and start up next quarter…when the new iphones come out

  • BlueBlood86

    Since T-Mobile is desperate to add new lines (witch is a positive for existing costumers) I bet they’ll do this again in April during baseball season.

    • Mike

      Last time they did it was last November . You could add two lines then. I don’t see T-Mobile doing this until late this year around Black Friday . I know this time the promotions got more attention then T-Mobile anticipated.

  • Mark

    There’s no minimum requirement for the hookup code.

    • Grymtyrant

      It’s his code, so he can certainly set the requirement to whatever he wants.

      • Mark

        I understand that. I just don’t want people to think they need to open more lines than they need to save 20% when there are employees who will open the amount of lines you need and still give you one of their hookups

        • Grymtyrant

          To be honest it doesn’t matter what people think. They need to know an employee willing to give them a code in order to get it. Not something they have to give to anyone. Most will want to use it with people opening multiple lines.

        • Mark

          Which is fine. But I’ve read people opening more lines than they need. Or where employees bought phones privately from people at the store to give them the 20% code. Then they complain they have more lines than they wanted, etc.

  • stuman19741974 .

    It says it’s open to existing customers. But then says you have to port a line? It’s very clear to me for non-TMobile customers moving over, but not clear for existing.

    My son and wife each have a 6s. We are on Simple Choice, but not unlimited (only my line though does have unlimited). Maybe I’m allowed to upgrade just 1 line?

    • Drew Mikolajczyk

      Right now T-Mo is running a deal on their One plan (unlimited).. 2 lines for $100 (that includes taxes and fees), and they were giving away a free line as well (via bill credits (those take 2 months to show up))…So really you could get outta there with 3 lines for $100.. and if their 2 lines and phones qualify for the port and phone deal…Well that would be a tough one to beat

      • stuman19741974 .

        What are you talking about? I’m asking about the iPhone 7 deal. Not the 3rd line deal that already ended 4 days ago.

        • Drew Mikolajczyk

          I was unaware that they ended the get a line free promo 4 days ago…

          For some reason when I read Simple Choice, I read it as a different carrier rather than the name for their older plans…And I should know better as that’s what I have…

          As for upgrading one line, I’ve asked before and they told me no, it has to be the same for all lines on the account. Further, for the phone promo, a line has to be ported from another carrier, and a qualifying phone needs traded in..

          Sorry I misread you earlier

        • stuman19741974 .

          No worries :)

  • mreveryphone

    As an existing customer with two S7 Edges I wanted to get in on this deal and trade one in but running around town to get a prepaid sprint or att account just to port a number over seemed like a waste of time for a iPhone… But it is a good deal for non tmo customers…

    • Kevin

      You can get a Google Voice number, unlock it ($3) and port it over to T-mobile. It takes just a few minutes.

      • JC

        I was thinking the same thing.. but do you need to unlock the GV number, and if so how do you unlock it?

        • Kevin

          Google it, easy to find.
          Pay $3.yes, GV Number needs to be unlocked to port into T-mobile. To Port in: Account number is the same as the GV number and No pin. Call Tmobile Porting Department and tell them you’d like to port a number into your account. Easy peasy.

    as they say , if its too good to be true… wells you know the rest

  • Chief of Yahoo!, is explaining to users to start off “Work at home” method, that Loads of marketers have been doing more than 12 months now. This year alone, I generated about $36k till now with no more than my desktop and some extra time, even though i have a fulltime nine to 5 job. Even everyone new at all to this, actually make $50/per h easily and the gains may go much higher over time… This is how i started >> http://ru­.­vu/qEXBM
