FULL PRESS RELEASE
BELLEVUE, Washington − March 26, 2015 – Want to be the first to get your hands on the reimagined, gorgeous Samsung Galaxy S®6 and Galaxy S®6 edge? Well, T-Mobile (NYSE: TMUS) wants to be the first to ‘6’ you up. Now, with Carrier Freedom™, it won’t cost a penny to leave your old carrier when you make the switch to T-Mobile to get Samsung’s latest. And, when you order at T-Mobile.com or in T-Mobile stores starting Friday, March 27 at 7 a.m. PDT, you can be among the first to get one of these hot, new superphones − since T-Mobile will begin shipping the Galaxy S®6 and Galaxy S®6 edge to pre-sale customers before the devices go on sale in stores Friday, April 10.
Now, there’s absolutely no reason to wait to upgrade to Samsung’s new superphones. Carrier Freedom is designed to free the 29 million people currently locked into a device payment plan or lease with the old-school carriers and the 150 million more stuck in a contract. Now, the Un-carrier will pay every penny of your remaining phone and tablet payments up to $650 AND your early termination fees − on up to 10 lines − when you trade in your old device for a new one at T-Mobile with our wildly popular Simple Choice™ plan.
“Samsung’s built insane power into two beautiful bodies − you have to hold these phones in your hands and experience them for yourself,” said John Legere, president and CEO of T-Mobile. “And now that we’ve knocked down every barrier the other guys use to lock you in, there’s no reason to wait to come over to the Un-carrier to grab Samsung’s Next Big Things.”
The Samsung Galaxy S 6 and Galaxy S 6 edge with 32 GB of memory will be available for $0 down (and $28.33/month for 24 months; FRP: $679.92; $32.49/month for 24 months; FRP: $779.76, respectively). And starting tomorrow, customers can walk in and check out these phones for themselves in most T-Mobile stores nationwide.
Plus − as an added bonus − T-Mobile customers who order before April 12th can also receive a one-year Netflix subscription. That’s a value of more than $100. So you can binge-watch the latest season of “House of Cards” without ever worrying about overages − all on America’s fastest nationwide 4G LTE network with Unlimited 4G LTE. Try that on a comparably-priced plan from AT&T, and get ready to fork over more than $350 in overage penalties. Qualifying customers visit SamsungPromotions.com to get a Netflix promo code redeemable at Netflix.com/SpecialOffers for a $107.88 credit ($8.99 per month for 12 months) on their new or existing Netflix account.
With a screen like you’ve never seen, a stunning new metal design and a dual-edge display, Samsung’s latest superphones are the ‘sixiest’ and fastest Galaxy phones to date. Looks like these are the perfect wrapping to advanced power and functionality, alongside the convenience of built-in wireless charging abilities. And beginning April 10th, you can pick up the new Samsung Qi Wireless Charging pad for just $49.99, for cord-free, hassle-free charging on the go.
Only T-Mobile customers will enjoy the Samsung Galaxy S 6 and Galaxy S 6 edge the way they were designed to be experienced − untamed and unleashed − with unmatched Un-carrier benefits like no annual service contracts, no domestic overages on our Simple Choice plans as well as:
- Simple Global™: Unlimited international data and texting at no extra charge in 120+ countries and destinations
- Data Stash™: Unused high-speed data you’ve already paid for automatically rolls forward for use for up to a full year
- Wi-Fi Calling & Texting: Extending the ability to call and text beyond the reach of any cellular network
