T-Mobile "12 Days of Value" started Saturday, ends December 12th

The nation's fourth largest carrier has started its "12 Days of Value" promotion and T-Mobile is giving you two, two, two mints in one ways to save on a new 4G phone. The promotion runs from Saturday through December 12th and gives you the opportunity with the carrier's Value Plan to purchase certain 4G smartphones for $12 down (see what they did there?). The 4G smartphones available for $12 down include the Nokia Lumia 810, LG Optimus L9, T-Mobile myTouch 2, T-Mobile myTouch Q 2, Samsung Gravity SMART and the Huawei Prism. A signed two-year contract is required to take advantage of the offer.

The second deal allows you to receive as much as $120 toward the purchase of a new 4G smartphone when you trade in a qualifying handset. The list is a bit indiscriminate as a Samsung Galaxy S II will fetch you the $120 back, but so will a Samsung Galaxy S III. Even the Google Nexus One will count as a qualifying trade, good for the $120. You can check out the list of qualifying phones below. And yes, a two-year pact must be signed.

"mut be signed" you say. I didn't know this offer had something to do with dogs too.

There is no sale here. You're paying for the phone $20 x 2 years. How can people not see this manipulation?

$412 for phones that are usually $500-700? Sounds like a bargain to me. Plus lower monthly costs than the other 3 major carriers, AND unlimited data.

240 over 2 years + the higher up front cost and a contract doesnt sound like a deal to me. For instance the galaxy note 2 is 419 up front + 240 over the course of 2 years PLUS a contract. So your paying 659 (minus the 50 dollar mail in rebate so 619 total) 80 dollars less then retail without a contract. Might as well save the 240 and another 80 and do it without a contract.

Great, I have a couple old Sensations and an old iphone3G or 3GS my wife used as an ipod that I could use to get an 810 instead of using the unlocked 900...

PERFECT. My wife's mytouch4g is killing itself. I wonder if i can trade in both my old SGS1 and that mytouch and get 2 rebates + $12 down on a phone. It would be nearly free after all that. :) If the Note2 is part of the deal I might just trade up and give her my Nexus4. hmm.....

So I went to my nearby T-Mo store, and they said that this offer was for only certain accounts. Even with my 5 lines and almost 8-years of tenure I didn't qualify. Very disappointed. Apparently it was sent out only to those qualified account holders and that there's a marker on the account for those who qualify.
