Sure, T-Mobile's value plan requires you to pay the full retail price for your new phone, but with a special mail-in rebate for this weekend's 4G Super Sale, those choosing certain handsets will find themselves getting as much as a $200 discount over the life of the contract...

Alright, seriously, someone needs to do research before they write the next article on a Tmo sale.. its not that hard and im tired of having to explain it over and over again.

There is a $480 difference per single line on the Value plan compared to the Contract plan.

easy math
value plan unl everything 2gig web
$60 x 24 = 1440
contract plan unl everything 2 gig web
$80 x 24 = 1920
1920-1440 = $480 in SAVINGS
An SGS2 costs 280 on contract before rebate
1920 + 280 = $2200
An SGS2 costs 530 on value plan
1440 + 530 = $ 1970

2200 - 1970 = $230 savings on the same phone, with the same package, but just on the value plan instead of the contract plan

230 + $200 sale rebate = $430 in total 2 year savings over the regular contract plan + phone.

compare that to the cost of the Skyrocket on ATT with unl everything and see how much your saving for the same phone on a different carrier (Tmobile)

And if your not doing the most expensive phones, the savings is even greater. Is it REALLY that hard to understand???? I know ive done the math probably about 10 times on these boards explaining it.

Being T-mobile customer for over 5 years. T-mobile is a big saving over AT&T.
And I have no problem with T-mobile service with either Nokia or SE phones. (both brands have exceptional reception over other brands)
