T-Mobile offering Samsung Gear VR for 50 percent off


Many of the deals that T-Mobile offers offer free phones and free lines, but sometimes T-Mo will have some nice discounts on accessories, too.

T-Mobile is now offering the Samsung Gear VR for 50 percent off its normal price, which means that it’s now $49.97. This model includes a USB Type-C adapter, and it appears to be the Gear VR model that debuted with the Galaxy Note 7 last year. T-Mo is also offering free shipping with accessory orders of more than $20.

With the Gear VR, you can pop in a compatible Samsung Galaxy smartphone and experience virtual reality. That includes watching movies, playing games, and viewing 360-degree photos and videos from Facebook.

This is a pretty nice deal if you’ve got a Samsung smartphone and haven’t yet given VR a try. There’s no telling how long the sale will last, though, so if you’re thinking about pulling the trigger, you may want to do it soon.

    is it in store or online or both? Will the S7 Work?

    • Steve_NYC

      According to the T-mobile link that is in the article, the Galaxy S7 and the Galaxy S7 Edge are compatible.

      • Heck Daniel Robert

        It should work on the Galaxy S6, Galaxy S6 Edge, Galaxy S6 Edge +, Samsung Galaxy S7, and Galaxy S7 Edge, and I’m sure it will work on the Samsung Galaxy S8

    • MadJoe

      S7 is micro USB, so unless there’s room for an adapter, no.

      • bkat11

        It has an adapter for C but it comes with micro USB

    • Alex Wagner

        It works on the Galaxy S6, Galaxy S6 Edge, Galaxy S6 Edge +, Samsung Galaxy S7, and Galaxy S7 Edge, and I’m sure it will work on the Samsung Galaxy S8 (please correct me if I am wrong anyone)

      I have the S7 and it works quite well. It comes with a micro USB and USB C adapters, so no issues there.

  • C Hardy

    Does it work with the galaxy prime

  • They_Call_Me_Bruce

    I saw this price in a store this week. I also saw the Gear S2 Classic for 100 bucks (not sure if that is a new reduced price) but didn’t use my free line on it because they said I couldn’t transfer it back to a phone line in the future.

  • Richard Wilkinson

    Would a pixel work in this?

  • Paul

    Clearly states on T-Mobile link in the article:

    Compatible Devices
    Galaxy S 7
    Galaxy S 7 edge

  • Critic4U

    I got one of these for free with my s7 edge and since the phone doesn’t have 4k you notice the pixels all the time. I used the device once or twice, it is neat but not worth it in my opinion.
