I guess it depends on what platform you want to use and how much is your budget.
If it's Android, the Nexus 5 is a pretty good deal if you can wait for it from the Play Store.
The S3 is only $299 at Walmart.
One, S4, Xperia are all good if you can afford them, or wait till Spring for the successors to them.
Otherwise, other lower end Android phone works too if you just make calls and texting, and check mails and some social networkings.
Bigger screen? Note 2/3 or G2.
iPhone: either one works if money is no problem and single hand operation is your preference.
Windows: 521 for budget or 925
Blackberry: I guess there's only one to choose from.

$15 for interest over 24 months, or less than 2% APR? Not bad for consumer electronics.

This is actually a great deal. I wouldn't say Nexus 5 is the best phone from Tmobile at the moment (iPhone 5S, LG G2, Samsung Note 3), but you won't find a better phone for the price.

This is what is wrong with these big phone companys these day. People need to realize in the end you will end up paying more than full retail price for these phones u thought u were getting a deal on. For example those paying off their S4 or HTC one monthly, in end it adds up more than the retail price. If you wait a little while, the retail price for phones drops very fast, definitely not worth the 2 year contract. Right now I can get S4 or HTC one off contract for about $400 and any color of my choice. Every since Verizon screw me over on the contract terms, I started to reject the idea of phone contract. I know alot of other countries that don't even have phone contracts too.

But they still don't offer the 32GB version. This is unfortunate for all those people about to jump to T-Mobile via their new reimbursement plan to switch from another carrier.

You can always get the Z1s then it has 32gb

I'd just go to GP and order it for less or hell go on craigs list and get one cheap and use it. I lime the N5 materials better than the G2 but I like LG UI a lot

I paid $388.40 (13.99 shipping and $25.41 for tax) for my Nexus through Google play store the day it launched. I believe the cheapest Google ships is $9.99, but could be wrong. So to me, $12 more to basically financing it for 24 months is pretty darn good for people that don't have $400 laying around.

Are you sure T-Mo won't charge you tax? I think they do. If so, the difference will be $46. I assume they both offer free shipping.

Yes, T-mobile does charge tax. It seems like the author forgot to add that part. T-mobile charge tax up-front, so you actually have to pay around $30 up-front even though it says "$0 down".

That's why they said via online, i would order it it's cheaper

Oh yea, I just checked again. No tax shown :P
That's odd though. Last time I tried to order phones from T-mobile website, they charged tax. Or did my memory get bad...
