T-Mobile to offer up to $200 rebate on some new phones just as subsidies are about to end

Just before T-Mobile puts an end to subsidized phones for its customers, the carrier will have one last blow out that takes up to $200 off the down payment of new handsets that are then paid off over 20 months; top models like the Samsung Galaxy S III, HTC Windows Phone 8X and yes, even the eagerly demanded Google Nexus 4 will be offered with no down payment...

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.
