#5GforAll coming to Metro by T-Mobile customers: Get a free 5G phone


T-Mobile is helping its prepaid customers be part of the 5G community. Earlier today, the company revealed a new 5G unlimited plan offer for its Metro by T-Mobile customers. 

The prepaid brand has launched a new switch and upgrade program that will allow customers to get a free 5G phone and enjoy a discounted monthly price on the plan. Beginning tomorrow, prepaid customers can switch to Metro by T-Mobile and enjoy a $25/month plan that comes with unlimited talk, text, high-speed data and 5G. Additionally, they get a free 5G phone with their device trade-in. The plan regularly costs $50/month. Taxes and fees are included.

This promotion is part of T-Mobile’s #5GforAll campaign where they let users trade-in any working device, even flip phones. In return, they will get to take home the 5G smartphone that T-Mobile is giving away under the promotion. When the campaign launched, it offered the Samsung Galaxy A32 5G. It then offered the OnePlus Nord N200 5G and the REVVL V+ 5G. 

In addition to getting a free 5G phone, Metro by T-Mobile customers get the most value for a 5G plan. T-Mobile shared that with Cricket Wireless’ 5G plan, customers have to pay $60/month. Meanwhile, Boost Mobile’s “unlimited” plan does not include 5G data yet. 

“Our smartphones are our lifelines, and yet a generation of prepaid customers are being left behind in the 5G era by providers and plans that keep them locked on old technology and slow, over-priced connections. If Cricket or Boost won’t upgrade their customers to 5G, Metro by T-Mobile sure will,” T-Mobile Consumer Group Executive Vice President Jon Freier said. “At Metro by T-Mobile, we put customers first. The biggest 5G network at half the price of Boost or Cricket, unlimited data with 5G included AND a free 5G phone? Talk about an easy upgrade.”

    The promotion on metro’s website pops up for a second and disappears

    • Shaun Michalak

      I bet it was a glitch in the system.. It is working now.

      • fyah

        Still disappears.

          Not sure.. But I think whoever is setting up their sites and stuff is not doing a very good job.. I tried their new map that shows where it is 4G, 5G, and 5G ultra capacity.. It is horrible.. It takes most of a minute just for the page to load on my PC.. and then hitting the + sign to zoom in.. It depends on how far you zoom in as to how fast it loads.. Minimal zooming, about 25 seconds to catch up.. Zooming in a lot.. well over a minute.. and that is if the map does not crash on top of it.. I have had to reload that map multiple times because of it just trying to check my city to see what they say about it.

          The irony, if I go to their old map where they compared their 4G service to their competitors, it takes 3 seconds for the page to fully load, and less no matter how much I zoom in.. I think they need a new IT guy.. Either that, of the one that they have for some reason thinks that maybe all computers are running IE’s new browser (edge) and windows 10, and that is all it is set up for?? That is my guess at least.. Either way, I am running firefox, not MS’s browser, and this is the only map that I have had problems with loading right like that..

          Metro doesn’t want you looking too closely at their 5g coverage.

          Unless you spend most of your time in an urban area with 5g coverage, you better off turning off 5g and saving the battery drain.

        • Shaun Michalak

          Maybe I should have clarified.,. I clicked on the link that was at the end of the article, which lead straight to the T-Mobile page (it was in another article) for the map part.. I just tried the map on the Metro page, and that one actually is much better at loading.. The irony.. The main company that charges more for their service.. Their map runs like crap.. But they cheap prepaid brand end runs halfway decent..

  • Shaun Michalak

    Read the disclaimer.. after 24 months, your $25 plan may increase.. So basically, they are giving you the plan for $25, but only for 2 years.. After that, all bets are off and your guess is as good as mine if they raise your bill up to the regular price or not..

    • Still not bad. If they raise it, go elsewhere. Someone Always has a promo.

      • Shaun Michalak

        I agree.. I mean.. $25 per month and no contracts.. You really can not complain about that.. It just more made me laugh.. After 24 months it may, or may not go up.. We are still thinking about it.. We will let you know later.. That part just struck me as funny.. Either way, if they do raise the prices, I doubt that they will raise them that much.. But until then, they are good..

        Heck, when it comes down to it.. I almost feel like starting up a new plan from another company, and then switching to Metro just for the free phone.. Still cheaper then buying it outright.. Especially when you consider you can buy a cheap AT&T or whatever phone from walmart for $20.. Toss on their cheapest plan.. then transfer to Metro.. Should not cost much and get the free phone.. If anything, I would do that and then just have it shut off after the first month, and move the phones over to my normal plan that I have now.. the one that is 4/100 that I do not want to get rid of..

    This is simply the 4 for 100 plan repackaged into a new promotion with a flexible number of lines. Visible, Cricket and Boost offer the same pricing on four lines.

    Metro’s promotion is actually worse because you cant lock in the price permanently. Metro’s other free 5g phone promotions dont require a trade in like this one. Metro advertises no fee to switch but Metro dealers aggressively charge activation fees. This is especially pernicious because Metro reserves their best pricing for in store promotions.

    don’t do this Its not free. your better off buying a phone you want outright. The phone T-Mobile gives you is worth $280. They say the phone is “free” but bill the line for several months. in total you end up paying $800 for a $280 phone. So can you pay the $280 down out the gate?…No its not part of the deal, hence they don’t make money off you being dumb thinking its free. Scam.
