Whether you’re in need of a major upgrade — hey, cracked screens happen — or you just want to get your hands on one of the top phones of 2023, a smartphone with reliable service is a basic necessity for most of us. Brand-new phones don’t have to cost a month’s rent, since carriers are always offering deals on new phones. To help you take full advantage of the best offers currently available at T-Mobile, we’ve rounded up the very best phone and plan deals you can shop right now.
It’s worth noting that carriers constantly update their deals. The best offers usually happen around new phone launches — typically February or March for Samsung Galaxy S phones, September for Apple iPhones, and fall for Google Android phones — or holidays like the upcoming Black Friday and Cyber Monday events.
Though some manufacturers, particularly Apple and Samsung, offer deals on their own websites and stores, most people look to carriers to buy new devices. T-Mobile tells CNET that unless it calls out a specific plan like the Go5G Plus or Magenta Max, all voice lines generally qualify for its deals. We’ll keep this page updated regularly with some of the best deals we’re seeing on T-Mobile’s website.
Best T-Mobile phone deals
Many of T-Mobile’s phone deals are available to new and existing customers, though trade-ins are often required to get the advertised prices. Keep in mind the deals are split across 24 months of bill credits, meaning you’ll need to remain a T-Mobile customer for at least two years in order for the phone to get paid off as the terms state. And some have 36-month terms. If you cancel before that period is over, you’ll be responsible for any remaining charges associated with it.
Best T-Mobile plan deals
If you’re looking to make the switch to T-Mobile, there are a few deals on various plans that may make you lean towards one or the other. Promotions on plans are less common these days, though oftentimes you can get some free extras, like streaming service subscriptions, music subscriptions and extra travel data, with enrollment in some of the higher-end 5G plans from each carrier, including T-Mobile.
