    How much does it usually costs when you add a new line on a Preferred choice plan?

    • Sayahh

      There’s a preferred choice plan?

      • krisstofer

        yah, that was an old plan Family of 4 lines at $100.

        • WONDROUS5000

          are you talking about select choice? that plan is excluded from this promotion.

        • Sayahh

          Select choice is excluded, for sure, but preferred choice might not be. Doesn’t hurt to ask. I’ve been asking them on Twitter DMs so that way you can get a paper trail in case they lied or gave you bad information and you try to get them to honor what they offered. If not, get the local TV station and the local or state consumer affairs department involved. Since it has 4 lines they might qualify for phone upgrades (or not), but I’m guessing it might not be eligible for the free line offers. (But can’t hurt to ask.)

      There is no such thing as “preferred choice” plan on T-Mobile. Not sure where you are getting that from.

      • krisstofer

        Okay my bad. I mean Simple Choice plan.

  • G1andonly

    You forgot that you can get a free Iphone mini if you trade in the iphone 11, like I did.

    • Sayahh

      Or even an iphone 8.

  • Alex Pilaia

    trade in a 1+7T and get a FREE 1+8T? whats the catch???

    • dcmanryan

      You can do exactly that. B&H had them for $300 but I think that deal is done.

      • Alex Pilaia

        seems like a no branier with all the small updates… 5G, 256GB (instead of 128GB), 12GB Ram instead of 8GB, 4500 battery instead of 3800, 65W charger instead of 30W, and all this for FREE? (just taxes).. hmm going tonight to investigate this…

    • MachoMachoMan007

      Buying a Samsung s9 on eBay or swappa would be cheaper. Still a great deal

    • Keith Stevens

      Yes sir… I worked for T-Mobile for 4 years and they Vary RARELY do these deals without adding a line. Just the trade in device. Take advantage while you can. :)

  • steveb944

    The moment I stop seeing the OnePlus 6 for trade in I’ll start considering trading in my OP7P.

  • bruce

    Just my opinion, it’s BS Trade in hahaha,. After bill credits,. Hahaha

    • Keith Stevens

      ya cause getting a phone completely free as a one time credit is so BS. Smh. EVERY carrier gives a one time credit or over the months of the lease. Some people will complain about anything. Go ahead and skip this one so people who appreciate a free upgrade can use it.

  • fyah

    How long will this deal last til?
