T-Mobile running iPhone 11 On Us, Samsung Galaxy deals


As expected, T-Mobile today rolled out a new iPhone 11 On Us deal.

T-Mobile is offering up to $1,000 off a new iPhone when you switch to T-Mo, activate a new line of service, and trade in an eligible device. The iPhone models that are included in this deal are the iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro, and iPhone 11 Pro Max as well as the iPhone XR, iPhone XS, and iPhone XS Max.

The iPhones that are eligible for trade-in are:

$1,000 off

  • iPhone XS
  • iPhone XS Max

$700 off

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

With this deal, you’ll get a trade-in credit based on the fair market value of your device and then the remainder of your discount will be spread out over 24 monthly bill credits.

The fine print of the promo states that you must port your number to T-Mobile and activate a voice line to qualify. If you cancelled a voice line within the past 90 days, you’ll need to reactivate it first. T-Mo also notes that this deal can’t be combined with select other offers, like Carrier Freedom. Finally, you will need to buy your new iPhone on a monthly payment plan to qualify.

If Android is more your thing, T-Mobile is offering a deal on Samsung’s recent Galaxy flagships. Customers who buy a new Galaxy S10, S10e, S10+, S10 5G, Galaxy Note 10, or Note 10+ on a monthly payment plan, add a new line, and buy a second Samsung Galaxy flagship on a monthly payment plan can save $750 on that second device.

With this deal, your $750 will be applied over 24 monthly bill credits. Existing customers need to add one new line, while new customers will need two lines. As with the iPhone deal, this Samsung promo cannot be combined with some other offers, like Carrier Freedom, and customers who have canceled a voice line in the past 90 days will need to reactivate it first.

  • Poorsha

    As usual, leaving long time loyal customers out in the cold.

    • SurvivingSunnyvale

      Only brining in new customers matters.

      Not retaining existing customers.

      • RealLifeJasonBourne

        If there’s a better network/price out there for ya, why are you still here?

        If there isn’t; why do they need to “retain” you with anything but the network/price?

        You were a new customer once. You probably already got your promo. How much do they owe you before they don’t owe you anything but good service at a good price? Doesn’t that attitude seem just a tiny bit entitled to you?

        • Omar Ávila

          I agree with you

        • Bob B.

          You are exactly right. My wife and I got our promo when we signed up for the 55+ plan just over two years ago. Her Samsung S8 was free. And we continue to enjoy the service AND the low price that we are locked into forever. $60 a month with auto pay. They even let us add a third line for our son who is enjoying his service also and we pay $90 a month including everything. How can we possibly be made happier ?? LOL

      • Yeah, you should definitely leave T-Mobile. They clearly aren’t paying you enough.

    • RealLifeJasonBourne

      As usual, T-Mobile has to build out it’s network and provide support for it and its users; they can’t do that and give everyone free phones.

      You got your deal when you joined if you were smart about it. You also get Netflix, deals every Tuesday, and a year of Pandora (if you were around when they offered it). (There may be more, this is just off the top of my head)

      They have been running a half price iPhone deal for existing customers with no line addition, I took advantage of it on 2 of my lines.

    • Roy Martinez

      Where were you from 10/27 up until last week? We had a trade up promo that did not require adding a line? Nobody’s fault but your own buddy.

    • Clearly

      Clearly the half off iPhone deal wasn’t good enough for you, so you complain about another promotion that is still wasn’t good enough for you. -.-

  • stasek

    Well, what do you know…. I’ve been postponing adding a line for my daughter till something like this came up. Didn’t feel like trading in a perfectly good 7 (to get $350 off), but just happen to have a spare 6s laying around, lol…

    • bitguru

      I’m seeing $47 for a 6S, and $77 for a 7, which is a far cry from $700. Do you see any different?

      • stasek

        The way I interpret this is you get the current trade in value as credit right away, and the difference between $700 and the trade in value is credited over 24 months. Someone correct me if I’m wrong.

        • Ant

          It says in the article you’ll get a trade in credit based on fair market value then the rest over 24 monthly credits.

  • pda96

    I love the LG BOGO deal. Unfortunately, TMO doesn’t carry the V40 anymore.

  • bitguru

    two questions: (1) How long do existing customers need to keep the newly activated voice line before canceling without penalty? (2) Is the $350 deal still in effect, or is it gone?

    Also, I guess a 3rd question: Do the lower-end iPhones on the $700 list actually get $700 off? Because I see only $77 for an iPhone7, and only $47 for an iPhone6S, when I try it.

    • Ryan

      (1) Having worked at T-Mobile, customers were told to wait at least 3 months; now this could have been based purely off the sales representative being paid out from commission based off the new line.
      Regardless, I opened up a new line when the Note 8 released for the BOGO and cancelled it the following month; I had to make sure I was receiving the bill pays for the phone first.

      Unfortunately, for your other questions I do not have answers.

      • Clearly

        Yeeeshhhh what kind of Tmobile rep were you. Totally wrong information.

    • Ant

      It’s credits over 24 months so… keep the line for 24 months. No line no credits. & the amounts you’re looking at are what those phones are valued at. You get those as a trade in upfront and remainder of the $700 monthly. It’s in the article

  • Dark enV

    I hate how they decided to offer this right after I just did everything that qualifies my wife to get this promotion as we just added new lines and she switched from Verizon but we did all that when the new iPhones went for preorder so we can’t qualify for this promotion

    • Nav Harriram

      Did you have a contract with Verizon? They’re not going to pay your termination and give you a free phone

      • Dark enV

        Nope, phone was paid off and she was free to leave without any fees.

        • Clearly

          You were in line with the half off iPhone promotion. Stop complaining.

  • It seems no store has iPhone 11 Pro in stock. How is the trade-in handled in this case?

    • Clearly

      Uhmmmmm it’s called ordering?

      • Yes I assume the phone is ordered, but from what I understand you can’t do an in-store trade-in for an ordered phone. You have to mail it in. What I’m wondering is, can you get this deal without going through a store, and how is the credit processed?
