T-Mobile rolls out Device On Us promotion for new and existing customers


T-Mobile today kicked off another “Device On Us” promotion for customers looking to treat themselves to a new smartphone this holiday season.

For a limited time, T-Mobile is offering a free Android or iOS smartphone to customers who add at least one new line of service and trade in a qualifying smartphone. This promotion is open to both new and existing customers, with new customers being required to add two new lines of voice service and existing customers being required to add at least one voice line.

The smartphones that you can get for free with this promo include an iPhone XR or iPhone 8, Samsung Galaxy S9 or S8, LG V40 or G7 , or OnePlus 6T. T-Mobile is also offering up to $750 off an iPhone XS, XS Max, iPhone X, iPhone 8 Plus, Galaxy S9+, Galaxy Note 9, or Galaxy S8 Active if you’d prefer one of those devices. Whichever phone you choose, you’ll need to purchase it on an Equipment Installment Plan to qualify for this promotion.

You’ll also need to trade in a phone that’s been paid off to qualify for this deal. Here are the phones that qualify for trade-in:

Eligible for iPhone purchases

  • iPhone X, iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus, iPhone 7, iPhone 7 Plus, iPhone 6s, iPhone 6s Plus

    Nothing to write home about.

  • Snackpack

    Ah geez…add a line…come on.

  • Mickey T

    I just had a number ported out so I’m ineligible unless i add two lines back i think..

    • Yep. “If you’re an existing customer who canceled a line within the last 90 days, you’re not eligible for this promotion. However, you can restore a recently canceled line and add an additional line to participate.”

  • Ben Jaimin

    play the system, they don’t care about existing customers. So you can do is do a change of responsibility, port out that number to H2O port it back in.

  • Scott LaRue

    Same ole crap deal.

  • Disqus5218

    This isn’t a deal if you don’t need a line. Lets assume you trade in an iPhone 6s, and get $300 for it. Then you already have 4 lines, so you AAL and get #5 at $20 a month. $20*36=$720+$300, TMobile gets $1020 and you get a $1000 phone.

    • The trade-in for an iPhone 6s at T-Mobile is about $54, but still $750 off a smartphone is a good deal, if you need the line.

      • Disqus5218

        No, it’s not. You break even really. Plus, the 6s is $150 on Swappa, so TMo is ripping you off there too.

    • The One

      Even if you need a line its a terrible deal because you have to give up the phone on your existing line and still buy a new phone for the new line. Plus, the only phones that are eligible for trade in are basically new phones.

  • Alex Pilaia

    Why add a line again?? I dont need 6 lines on my account for 2 people… Come on Tmobile. Discounts and promotions for ALL CUSTOMERS without adding a line!!!

    • Acdc1a

      What are you bringing to the table?

      • riverhorse

        Social justice crusading.

      • gorilla

        How about not cancelling the existing line for the next 2 years?

        • Acdc1a

          So switch, pay a much higher rate elsewhere, and then complain about their practices.

          The people who complain loudest are the ones who are on the least profitable, grandfathered rate plans.

        • gorilla

          It really does make sense to switch then switch back couple years later when they have the deal going on. That’s just a loss for tmo.

        • Acdc1a

          Unless you just came to T-Mobile and have no promotions whatsoever, you’ll pay more to go elsewhere. They know this.

  • riverhorse

    This is actually a good way to be either an adulterous sugar daddy, a polygamist, or a teacher with a student main squeeze on the cheap- really impress them by adding them and a younger sibling(start working on the next paramour) with the latest phone to your plan.

    • Fan_Posting

      Hopefully Not, and hopefully many have some Level of core Decency and moral compass, as it relates to under-age children (students)….on any level, any day and during any season. As a child and family advocate, if not, all bets are off, and they will be prosecuted to the fullest of the law…

      • riverhorse

        Well, that was just sarcasm- how to find a use for umpteenth line added to plan…and….news headlines chock full of female teachers giving their students extracurricular lessons.
