Metro by T-Mobile offering free Samsung Galaxy A20 when you switch


Just days after T-Mobile launched a Samsung smartphone deal, Metro by T-Mobile is rolling out its own Samsung special.

Metro is now offering a free Samsung Galaxy A20 when you switch your number to its service. Just port your number to Metro by T-Mobile from a different carrier and buy a Galaxy A20, and you’ll receive an instant $239.99 rebate to cover the cost of your new phone.

The fine print of this deal states that phone numbers currently on T-Mobile or active on Metro by T-Mobile in the last 90 days aren’t eligible. There’s a limit of two free Galaxy A20 phones per account.

Samsung’s Galaxy A20, which is also arriving on T-Mobile this week, features a 6.4-inch 1560×720 Super AMOLED screen and dual rear camera setup with 13MP main and 5MP ultra wide snappers. An 8MP front camera will capture your selfies. Other specs of the A20 include 32GB of storage, a microSD card slot, 3GB of RAM, a rear fingerprint reader, and a 4000mAh battery.


If you’re not feeling the Galaxy A20, Metro by T-Mobile is also selling the Galaxy A10e and LG K40, both of which you can also get for free when you switch your number to Metro. The Galaxy A10e’s feature list includes a 5.8-inch display, 8MP rear and 5MP front cameras, 32GB of storage, a microSD slot, and a 3000mAh battery, while the LG K40 is packing a 5.7-inch screen, 13MP rear and 5MP front cameras, 32GB of storage, a microSD slot, and a fingerprint reader.


Finally, Metro says that it’s launching the LG Stylo 5 and Moto G7 Play next week. The Moto G7 Play boasts a 5.7-inch screen, 13MP rear and 8MP front cameras, and a fingerprint sensor, and it’ll be available for free with Metro’s switcher offer. The LG Stylo 5 has a big 6.2-inch screen, included stylus, and fingerprint sensor, and it’ll be available for under $50 when you port your number to Metro.

    This is not only mediocre, but on a grand scale: 5 models from the 3 leading brands- all only 332gb, plus…the ones over 6″ have lousy resolution, the ones with decent resolution are under 5-34″.
    A couple of them have been out on other mvno carriers a month preceding.
    All these models have plus larger versions, yet none are heading this way. Not even for more money. Not even to TMobile itself for even more money.
    What a way to cheapen both brands simultaneously in tortuously slow, prominent fashion.

    Before anyone protests, we’re not saying don’t bring these models- bring ’em on! But… don’t just bring over the least-specced or smallest ” size of each line- give us mid and plus options.

      They do this on purpose,they know if they bring the plus models,people would stop buying the over price upper tier phones!! I was hoping this yr would be the yr,they would start bringing out 4/64/plus 6.-6.2-4″ models,but no!!

        Samsung ceo just said in an interview that they’ve had consecutive multiple ytd minus 50+% sales quarters, and to compensate they will be focusing in mid tier area. He touted the recent A line releases as proof.
        The problem is that A phones do not qualify as mid tier, the ones that arrive to US / TMo, and worse — are overpriced at a smidgen below OnePlus. In fact, Samsung has not increased storage & ram for a half decade now (and for a good while even the flagships kinda suffered something similar).

        BTW one of the four main reasons for bad Samsung sales is cratering ram pricing…they supply a lot of phone makers–yet the new ram they’ve developed, which is compatible with their new UFS storage, will not be in the upcoming Note.

        Samsung needs a leadership makeover– they’re suffering from the Emperor Has No Clothes Syndrome.

      I agree, but I find that the A20 that metro sells has been a pretty decent phone. Even with it’s specs. It’s about user experience not always the specs of the phone. And, the phone has a pretty nice experience. Super AMOLED even with a cruddy res doesn’t really bother me since my eyes are blind anyways and I need very strong prescription glasses to see anything… So, the resolution doesn’t bother me. I can’t see 4K unlike others can. My eyes aren’t that great. And they’re only getting worse as I age. But, yeah if you’re anything like me just looking for a budget friendly phone that will bring a nice punch and give you that flagship feeling of a phone then you’ll want this phone. It’s a great deal honestly. For the experience of the device which is really nice and fluid. It’s really not a bad deal to switch from if you’re on cricket. Cause, 2 months ago I paid cricket 400 dollars for a Galaxy A6 only to come to find out the phone has been on metro for a over a year and that it’s cheaper on other carriers. Wt heck at&t rape your prepaid customers too? So, I was glad to finally stop overpaying for mediocre offerings at cricket and decided to go with the better decision of the A20 which does have a 6.4 inch display. Which is big enough for me to see. I need a bigger screen in order to see or use my phone anyways.

        Sorry about your eyesight– mine is nothing to brag about. With more ram and storage I might have jumped, there’s tons of apps I want that either don’t outright install or just don’t play well on external…meantime the phone full to the brim overheats, slows down, etc. 64&4gb wouldn’t be enough but i would still accept it if nothing else was missing or inferior.
