T-Mobile reveals Magenta Friday deals, offers free OnePlus 6T, Samsung Galaxy S9, iPhone XR

as a heads up, you wont be able to finalize the payments on the device until the very end of the 24 month period. This is basically you being locked to the device for 24 months because T-Mo wont give you the money outright. This is not exactly a deal to those who plan to switch devices next year.

Does anyone know if an existing customer can add a line then cancel that line? I really doubt this, but thought I'd throw it out there.

I once asked one of the workers at T-Mobile and they told me you would have to maintain the line for at least 6 months (can’t remember exactly if it was 6 months but it was somewhere around there) and then you would be able to cancel it but I’m not sure how that would affect the free phone offer . Hope this helped !

this is what you can do. Add the new line and get the new phone. then, wait a few weeks and cancel your old line and keep the new one. Sometimes they allow you to keep your old number. it depends on the CSR.

So...What about customers that might plan to switch? Are they just screwed out of the deal?

As long as T-Mobile requires me to switch from my Simple Choice plan to their Unlimited, no dice. I can get an iPhone on a regular EIP for $30 with a new line for $10 on my existing plan and still pay less than if I had 4 lines with the Unlimited.
