Leak reveals the cost of some high-end phones on T-Mobile's rumored SCORE! plan

Leak reveals the cost of some high-end phones on T-Mobile's rumored SCORE! plan
On Friday, we told you about a leak that revealed T-Mobile's plan to launch SCORE! which is a version of its early upgrade JUMP! plan for customers not eligible for the latter. If you're not a postpaid customer with an equipment installment plan (EIP), you should be able to subscribe to SCORE! The expected cost of the service is $5 per month, and as we told you yesterday, after 6 months you can get a free entry-level phone. Those models would include handsets like the Alcatel OneTouch Evolve 2, Alcatel OneTouch Fierce 2, LG Optimus L90 or the T-Mobile Concord II.

We also pointed out that after 12 months, SCORE! members would be allowed to purchase a high-end model at a discount. Yesterday, we didn't have a list of possible models that could be purchased on SCORE!, or the pricing. Now, we have a list of what apparently is a number of the handsets that can be purchased on the SCORE! plan. The list includes the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 (current price $769, SCORE! price $599), Nexus 6 64GB, (current price $699, SCORE! price $599), Apple iPhone 6 64GB (current price $849, SCORE! price $649), HTC One (M8) (current price $669, SCORE! price $499), Sony Xperia Z3 (current price $659, SCORE! price $499), and the LG G3 (current price $549, SCORE! price $299).

Consider that the SCORE! prices for the high-end models listed above require 12 months on the plan (at $5 per month). Still, with the discounts more than the $60 cost of SCORE!, the plan is worth paying for. SCORE! is rumored to debut tomorrow, so we expect to hear from the carrier either later today or early tomorrow.

I really appreciate the effort T-Mobile put in the market and keep it very competitive. I couldn't image how other carriers are going to rip us off without the existence of T-Mobile. Though I didn't use Tmobile because I got corporate discount on Verizon and I )ove my phones been subsided. Wish Tmobile could subside their phones too.

I can say that those prices are place holders (though likely close, but they are not concrete and will fluctuate). One I work there, and two yes it's an internal doc.

$360 for an LG G3 is a pretty good deal.
