How do we capitalize on this? Should we switch our messaging plans to lower tiered ones (I think I can switch from unlimited down to 1000 or even 100).

Or have they suddenly stopped allowing you to switch features around as well because they thought of this?

Also what if a phone had no messaging plan; is one message considered an overage?

Isn't every plan currently offered except the Walmart one unlimited talk and text?

T-Mobile loving dropped the ball on the iPhone 6 being unlocked. Pisses me of.

Don't they only unlock it if you have it completely paid off? Are you on installments?

What is T-Mobile even doing with all these phones? Refurbishing them and filling insurance replacement requests with them?

John Legere is building a spaceship.

I am seeing conflicting information on the iPhone 7 trade in deal. Do you have to change your plan to T-Mobile ONE? I really would rather not do that.

If anyone was lucky enough to get a Sonic Mania code and doesn't want it, I'd gladly make use of it.

Thanks but that was the free Sonic CD game everyone got. It's confusing because it says Sonic Mania in the thumbnail but they are different games.

If anyone's not using their MLBshop code from T-Mobile Tuesday I'll take it. Need a new hoodie for my wife to steal.

Edit just got pm'd one thanks!

Really tempting to trade in my 7. Save $300 to spend $1000, those bastards.

We did the deal for the XR. Bought a decent looking iPhone 6S on Craigslist for $150 and got bogo lines. We have Kickback and will use the paid line for business, so it will only be $10 a month. So over two years itís a $750 phone for $390. If you need to upgrade, might as well.

I am surprised every year they run this special because itís too good to be true. One day they will stop and Iíll be sad.

If the 7 is included I might be tempted. I was going to hold off on a new phone this year because it seems like most of the cool features will be in the 2020 iPhone.

Yeah, I think Iím going to go ahead and do it. I checked craigslist and canít find anywhere near $350 for a 32gb iPhone 7.

Iíll probably end up giving the 11 to my wife and take her XR since I donít really care about the camera, and the other features seem incremental.

I donít know if thereís anything worth watching on Quibi, but I just saw in my options that T-Mobile is offering a sub for free.

In my experience itís barely ever worth doing t-mobile offers given the hours you have to spend talking with customer service to fix all the ways it hosed up your plan.

Iíve got an iPhone 5S laying around, I donít really need an iPhone 12 mini or a random Samsung but those seem like better options than $50 on Craigslist or whatever.

If Iím on a T-Mobile ONE plan with several lines that are $5/10/20 - how much will these be if I switch to Magenta Max to take advantage of the iPhone trade in?

Thanks for pointing out the comparison tool. Magenta MAX would be $47 more expensive for me WITHOUT including potential Kickback discounts on 6 lines (usually I have 2-4 people get the $10 off each month) soÖnot worth it at all.

I have a family member wanting to join my plan - can we do this deal if we transfer their line over? Or does it have to be a new line/new number?

https://www.t-mobile.com/news/offers/black-friday-apple
Buy one get one ON US (up to $800 off) on any two iPhone 12 or iPhone 13 models via 30 monthly bill credits on EIP when adding a new line on ANY postpaid consumer plan (new customers must add 2 new lines).

Iíve also been looking at the above deal, but itís hard to convince myself to leave my $40/mo Metro plan, even though Iíd like to upgrade from my XR. Is it generally considered one of the better deals of the year? Iíve already got AirPods Gen 2 but I guess I could get the 3s and sell my old ones, and if the Apple TV is a code id sell that too.

Feels like Iíd be better off just putting some money aside each month and buying a handset straight out in a years time tbh, but maybe Iím not seeing the benefits?

It seems like a solid deal. You don't have to trade in your XR and in my case I don't have to move to Magenta MAX either.

I just moved and the Tmo signal is pretty bad being far off the main road. I bought a booster off Amazon but it could never find a signal to boost. What are my options here? Wifi calling and stuff works fine but I'd still like to have a signal in case our ISP goes down.

Your option is to switch carriers or wait to see if coverage improves.

Yeah that's what I figured, I've just been with T-Mobile forever so hoping that's not necessary. Might have my wife switch to Verizon or something so we at least have another option in case of emergency.
