T-Mobile to offer up to $200 rebate on some new phones just as subsidies are about to end
The phones available for $0 down include the Samsung Galaxy S III, the HTC Windows Phone 8X and even the Google Nexus 4. With all of those handsets and some others, you pay $20 each month for 20 months to complete the payment of the phone. Some models, like the Samsung GALAXY Note II will require a $99.99 down payment (after the $200 rebate) in addition to the EIP of $20 a month for 20 months. Of course, you will need to sign a two-year contract for the Unlimited Value plan in order to get any of the rebates.
The deal starts on Friday and runs through the end of the year.

For the record, Costco will continue to subsidize T-mobile phones (i.e., Classic plans), as stated in an email from the head of the firm operating its kiosks.

Lets analyze the GS3. 199$ down, $200 mail in rebate. That's $400 up front payment. Then $20 x 20 = $400. 800$ for the phone, minus $200 equal $600 total. You still have a two year contract. $50 unlimited +20 = 70 per month payment. Yes you do save money but spending $400 dollars in one day for a phone? Urg

Um your math is wrong, however I get the sentiment, why pay just add much for the phone with tmobile just to get bad service with no lte?

you pay $0.00 up front (after rebate). Total cost of the phone after 20 months is $400.00 and not $600.00.
