T-Mobile 4G Super Sale puts a free smartphone in your hands, has its fine print
Looking for a new smartphone from T-Mobile? The 4G Super Sale that the carrier will run over the weekend might be a great opportunity to grab one. On December 17 and 18, all T-Mobile phones will be priced at zero after rebate, including its top-shelf handsets like the Samsung Galaxy S II and the HTC Amaze 4G.
Of course, there is a catch. Your signature under a qualifying 2-year Value Plan is required, and the remainder of the device's cost must be paid in 20 monthly installments. Besides, the deal is available only to new customers and to subscribers that have been with the carrier for over 18 months.
Still, if none of that bothers you, feel free to visit a participating T-Mobile retail store and grab a new, shiny smartphone. Keep in mind, however, that the deal is not available online, so you need to do it the old-fashioned way – drive downtown and pick it up yourself. Check out the press release below for all the details.
