T-Mobile Offers Promotion On New myTouch by LG Smartphones For Existing Customers

T-Mobile’s newest promotion is a kinda, sorta response to the iPhone but more importantly, it’s available for their existing customers. Too often T-Mobile’s promotions are only available to new customers so we’re happy (actually we’re thrilled) to see something that takes care of the T-Mobile faithful. The myTouch by LG models won’t satisfy the urges of the Galaxy S II crowd but they are still very good mid-range Android devices and are 4G ready.

According to this document that just hit our inbox, from November 9th through December 28th, “existing customers who upgrade to the T-Mobile myTouch by LG or T-Mobile myTouch Q by LG will be eligible to receive $100 off the current upgrade pricing. The $100 off is a combination of a $50 mail-in-rebate and a $50 discount.”


  • Available with Classic rate plans only with a $20 or higher web feature
  • 18+ month contract tenure
  • Eligible for Same as new or Early Upgrade pricing
  • Must upgrade to a T-Mobile myTouch by LG or T-Mobile myTouch Q by LG device

    it’s wonderful that they’re finally having deals with current customers ready to upgrade, like myself. too bad it’s only for two mid-range phones rather than the flagships.

    • derek 21

      what company is doing specials on  flagship phones? and don’t say the iphone because the only reason you get that for 200 is the higher etf if you leave to make sure they get their money off the data requirement>? no1 else is selling their sweet phones for the low lol.

    These phones are garbage. Give us some deals on the SGSII and Amaze 4G!

    • Tony

      Yes I saw the New My Touch and it did not appeal at all to me………….

  • BigMixxx

    Awe naw….naw…naw…naw T mobile WRONG direction..

    1)  I love my G2x, but after my 3rd trade in the month, I’m done with the LG
    2)  I don’t think that’s the right choice to keep customers….Offer the same for the higher tier phones and the response will go up.  

    A perfect example would be the 9900 and 9810’s around that 99 to 150 dollar pricetag after those rebates….  That would be beautiful…

  • Should have did this for the HTC Radar 4G.  smh

    I happen to have 2 lines eligible for upgrade so I went the the MyT-Mobile site to check my options.  Looks like I can get either of the LG MyTouch phones for just $29.99.  So what’s the benifit of this promotion again? Am I missing something?

    Edit: nvm, just check and apparently these phones are $79.99 after $50 rebate for new customers so the 29.99 for exsisting customers is right. Good deal if I were interested in a mid range android phone.

    • William Cron

      I agree about the Radar. I’d love to see this promotion expanded to include that device. Infact, given the time frame of the promotion, T-Mobile should just give eligible existing customers the $100 rebate to be applied however we want, on any device, as a Christmas gift.

    T-Mobile’s Operating Challenges to Persist as Subscribers Defect – MarketWatchCHICAGO, Nov 11, 2011 (BUSINESS WIRE) — T-Mobile USA’s difficulties in retaining postpaid wireless subscribers point to a continuation of operating challenges moving into 2012. As uncertainty lingers over the Department of Justice (DOJ) antitrust suit opposing AT&T Corp.’s proposed T-Mobile acquisition, Fitch Ratings sees limited growth opportunities for T-Mobile as a stand-alone carrier.Third-quarter operating results at T-Mobile continued to highlight revenue problems linked to the ongoing loss of critical postpaid subscribers that contribute more to the company’s margins and long-term growth potential. These negative postpaid trends are of particular concern since postpaid contract subscribers generate approximately 80% of the company’s revenue.Total revenue trends improved somewhat in the third quarter but remain negative. The modest improvement was due to T-Mobile’s new niche value-oriented plans that will not likely generate a sustainable material increase in revenue.With postpaid contract customers still expressing a clear preference for Apple’s iPhone (not offered by T-Mobile) and faster competing LTE networks, we expect subscriber loss trends to continue for the foreseeable future. This follows a trend of postpaid subscriber losses that developed in mid-2009 due to declining share and pressured postpaid churn rates that were already considerably higher than industry averages.As the only major U.S. wireless provider that does not offer the iPhone, T-Mobile’s ssubscriber growth outlook remains dim. Following the October roll-out of Apple’s iPhone 4S, postpaid subscriber losses are likely to accelerate in the fourth quarter.Beyond short-term operating trends, T-Mobile could face broader competitive challenges due to the lack of a 4G network strategy based on LTE technology. While Verizon and AT&T are pushing ahead with LTE deployment plans that will shape the future of wireless technology,T-Mobile does not have the capital or spectrum to introduce LTE technology.Given the lack of a clear path to better wireless technology, T-Mobile faces an uncertain future as a stand-alone wireless carrier. This presents the DOJ with an interesting dilemma, since rejection of the deal could ultimately leave U.S. wireless customers with more choices in the short run, but it could limit prospects for T-Mobile’s survival as a solid long-term competitive player.The above article originally appeared as a post on the Fitch Wire credit market commentary page.

      I could poke holes in this for a few.  I understand who it was written by, and who fitch ratings is….

      BUT, to keep it light….there are too many mentions of LTE and one clear statement made:  Verizon and ATT are ‘…shap(ing) the future of wireless technology’…
      iPhone demand (determined by apple, because no one really understands what they are asking for in return for selling their device)

      Never a mention of lack of direction….or T mobile is Owned by DT

      so the best rating…Not Publically Traded.

    There is a radar promotion if you trade in your old phone you get 100 visa gift card. there is no stipulations on what kind of phone you trade in as long as it works and isnt damaged. i did it for a customer today. it works for new activation and upgrade. 

  • Havoktek

    Damn……..TMO….You playing go fish at a spades game with this “deal”.
    You can seriously chuck LG up for loses after the G2X fiasco (even though I dig mine).

    Who’s running marketing….The Nerds?

  • Ginkster

    how is this in any way an iphone response?

  • Bigdubt2003

    So is this phone better than the my touch 4g slide?

  • Frank
