T-Mobile launching Google Pixel 4a 5G on November 20 with two special offers


T-Mobile confirmed last month that it will sell the Google Pixel 4a 5G, and now we know that T-Mo customers will be able to get the new Pixel for as little as $0.

The Pixel 4a 5G will be available for pre-order from T-Mobile starting this Friday, November 13, and it’ll launch on November 20. Pricing will be $0 down and $20.84 per month for 24 months on an Equipment Installment Plan or $0 down and $22 per month on an 18-month lease through JUMP! On Demand or Sprint Flex. Full retail price will be $499.99.

T-Mo will have a couple of deals on the new Pixel 4a 5G to help you get it for less. You’ll be able to score the new Pixel for free with 24 monthly bill credits when you add a new line and trade in an eligible smartphone:

For $499.99 off

  • Apple: iPhone 7 series, iPhone 8 series
  • Samsung: Galaxy S8 series, Galaxy Note 8, Galaxy S7 series
  • Google: Pixel, Pixel XL, 2 and 2 XL, 3a and 3a XL, 3 and 3 XL
  • OnePlus: 7, 7 Pro, 6, 6T
  • LG: G8 ThinQ, G7 ThinQ, V50 ThinQ, V40 ThinQ

Alternately, you can get half off the Pixel 4a 5G when you either add a new line or trade in a phone.

The Pixel 4a 5G is compatible with T-Mobile’s low-band 600MHz and mid-band 2.5GHz 5G networks.

Other features of the Pixel 4a 5G include a 6.2-inch 2340×1080 OLED display, a dual rear camera setup with 12.2MP main and 16MP ultra wide cameras, and an 8MP hole-punch selfie cam. Inside the phone is a Snapdragon 765G processor, 6GB of RAM, and 128GB of storage, and the whole phone is powered by a 3800mAh battery.

There’s a USB-C port on the Pixel 4a 5G for fast charging at up to 18W speeds plus a 3.5mm headphone jack, which is a feature you don’t always see on new smartphones. The device comes pre-loaded with Android 11 and will get at least three years of OS and security updates.

If you’re interested in Google’s Pixel 5, T-Mobile has said that it does not plan to carry that device. You can buy the Pixel 5 unlocked from the Google Store and bring it onto T-Mobile’s network, though.

    Details on what phones qualify for trade in?

    • Ben

      same ones but just $250 not $499

      • dcon9999

        Ok – that list of phones wasn;t posted before – but….Can’t trade in the galaxy s9?

        • Ben

          S9 is a better phone. Sell it yourself and buy a S7 or pixel OG on ebay to trade.

  • Jeffrey Kime

    So I can buy a crappy old Pixel or Pixel 2 of Ebay for $50 … and get either $250 trade in or $499 off if I add a line? Am I reading that correctly?

    • dcon9999

      I did that for my wife’s Galaxy s9 back in the day. I bought a Galaxy s4 with broken glass for $10 – found a place that would do glass for $20 – and traded it in for like $250

  • Mark McCoskey

    I think I just made my last payment on the T-Mobile OnePlus 6T (from my Nexus 6 trade-in). Just might trade it in for the 4a. Headphone jack and 3 years of updates. n71 is available, but don’t think they have n41 Live as yet.

    Unless I have piece of junk for a phone, I wouldn’t trade any phone for a Pixel. The smartphone business is just an after thought for Google. And the Pixels are low quality devices, putting it nicely.

  • Ty Christensen

    I have the Pixel 4 from the $300 Costco deal in Feb 2020. I still have my Pixel 1 so I could trade in the Pixel 1 and get this 4a 5G for $250? I’d be down for that!

  • steveb944

    OG Pixel is a pretty great trade in at $250.

  • I saw on Reddit that they’re not doing Jump On Demand so I’m pretty psyched here!

  • James Symmonds

    I already pre-ordered from Goog. Figured they were ok with trading in a 3aXL with broken screen, so why not.

    • dcon9999

      They took a cracked screen phone? For full credit?

      • James Symmonds

        I doubt it was full credit. They’re offering $115. Which is fine with me. I’m lazy and if I can pay someone else to take a cracked screen phone off of my hands, I’m all for it.

  • Robert Alverson

    Trade in is only offering $27 for my LG G7 Thinq.
