T-Mobile kicks off iPhone switcher deal


T-Mobile is celebrating the weekend by rolling out a new switcher deal.

For a limited time, customers to port their number to T-Mobile, buy a new iPhone, and trade in a qualifying device can get up to $750 off their new iPhone (as spotted by users on Reddit). To qualify for this deal , you must buy a new iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max, iPhone XR, iPhone 8, or iPhone 8 Plus on EIP and port your phone number in from a non-T-Mobile carrier. That means that customers on T-Mobile Prepaid, Metro by T-Mobile, and MVNOs that use the T-Mobile network aren’t eligible.

This promo is open to new and existing T-Mobile customers. New customers must activate at least two new voice lines, one of which must be a port-in. Existing customers must add at least one ported in voice line. In both instances, the new iPhone’s EIP must be associated with the ported-in line.

The devices that are eligible for trade-in with this deal include:

  • $750 off: iPhone 7 and 7 Plus, iPhone 8 and 8 Plus, iPhone X, Samsung Galaxy S8 series, Samsung Galaxy S9 series, Samsung Galaxy Note 8 and Note 9, LG V40, LG G7, Google Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL, Google Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL, OnePlus 6T
  • $600 off: iPhone 6 and 6 Plus, iPhone 6s and 6s Plus, Samsung Galaxy S6 series, Samsung Galaxy S7 series, Samsung Galaxy Note 5, LG V20 and V30/V30+, LG G6, Google Pixel and Pixel XL, OnePlus 6

No matter whether you get the $600 or $750 discount, it’ll be spread out over 24 monthly bill credits.

This deal is available in T-Mobile stores, online, or over the phone through customer service. There’s no word on how long it’ll be available, so if you’re interested in taking advantage of the offer, you may want to do it sooner rather than later.

    These add a line deals are good for new customers but suck for current

      Bill credits are the real deal breaker. Costco will more than likely have the same deal but with a physical card. The problem with Costco is you have to buy the phones up front and most don’t have the cash for two iPhones or don’t want to part with it.

        Also at Costco,you get $50.00 off any phone they have,no matter what carrier. As A side note,when the Note 9 came out,the other 3 big had deals with Note 9,but Tmo block all the big box stores from any kind of deals for it,but the $50.00 off one. I got great deal from Samsung for the Note 9,with a trade in of mint 8’s. I got from Swappa.$665. I would checkout Apple site 1st to see what kind of deals they have Tmo Iphone.

    Yet again no long time customer deals

    Guys just realize that no carrier is going to lose money giving away free phones. I was lucky when I joined I got 5 free LG basic smartphone for each of my 5 lines. Have not seen a deal like that again. No switch. No porting. No add line. Just a phone and actual price spread out on a 2 year credit. Have not seen a deal like that again

      But you were switching…so isn’t that essentially porting/adding 5 lines? Also comparing “LG basic smartphones” is apples to oranges. You could buy 3 or 4 of them with a single $750 credit.
