T-Mobile launches early Black Friday deals, BOGO offers for iPhone 8, Galaxy S8/S8+, Note 8, LG V30, and more

T-Mobile has just revealed its first wave of promos for the upcoming holiday season. Starting November 17, the Un-Carrier will be offering BOGO (buy one, get one) deals for some of the hottest smartphones of 2017. Here's the complete list of devices:

There appears to be no BOGO deal for the iPhone X, but T-Mo has a trade-in offer for those of you interested in Apple's $1,000 flagship. Meanwhile, those of you on the hunt for an iPhone 8 Plus can nab a second one for $99.99.

Of course, these promotions do come with the typical caveats. New or existing customers will have to activate a new line of service and get the two devices on an installment plan. The free device will have to be of lesser or equal value to the first one, and the cashback will be paid via monthly credits towards a Prepaid MasterCard card.

Aside from the smartphone deals, there are some neat discounts on some accessories colored in the Un-Carrier's characteristic magenta hue. These include:

  1. $70 off Twilight Magenta Ultimate Ears MEGABOOM Bluetooth speaker for a total of $179.99
  2. $80 off Twilight Magenta Ultimate Ears BOOM 2 Bluetooth speaker for a total of $99.99
  3. 40% off Speckled Magenta mophie powerstation mini

I still can't believe there's people buying iphones and galaxies from t mobile, when by next year they won't be compatible with all of t mobile's bands.

Why do you say that?

Band 71, right now only the LG v30,v30+ has it. I travel constantly outside of the metropolitan areas and in my phone that has band 12 it's stellar, while my older band 2,4 phones it's obnoxious, so I know that t mobile is not going to expand band 2,4 outside the cities, which makes sense since they're high frequency bands. If you never leave the city you're fine, if you constantly go from Texas to Indiana to new York band 71 is a must.

And your logic is that tmobile is going to deactivate the other bands that those devices are currently compatible with, making these phones obsolete? If the phone works perfectly well right now, it'll work just as well next year and the year after that. You do understand that, right? Tmobile isnt getting rid of any bands any time soon...

That's completely untrue. When LTE first began I went and got an LTE compatible phone bands 2 and 4. Everything was fine until last year when I started losing a lot of reception and completely lose signal when in the outdoors. I knew something was wrong so I went ahead and bought a band 12 compatible phone, all my signal related issues went out, save the occasional worm hole no one has coverage has, so yes for some reason they took away band 2 and 4 spectrum. This wasn't even my point though it's more than anything that a new band is being deployed so it makes no sense to drop 1k $ when there's going to be newer devices soon that will take advantage of all of t mobile's bands. Current galaxy line up will only take advantage of 75% of t mobile's LTE bands, LG v30 and newer handsets will take advantage of 100% of t mobile's bands, that's my point and since it's such a low band spectrumwise it's going to work much better whether in the city or rural areas.

Did you really jusy imply that tmobile messed up 2 bands on their end just to get you to go out and buy another phone, which they dont even make, with the extra band they had just deployed?... thanks. Tells me everything i need to know about you. Now i know not to bother any further. For the folks out there with reasonable amount of sense, dont worry... your s8, note8, and older iphones and such will continue to work just as fine tomorrow without the new band, as they do today.

I didn't imply it, I said it. You've never had to bother you did so because you wanted to, so it was never a bother in the first place. Thanks for wasting your time here

What phone did you have at the time when you started having reception issues it might have been because the radio in your phone was stating to go out depending on how old the phone was. Also Band 71 won't be available for some years, (right now it's only deployed in Cheyenne, WY, and Scarborough, ME) until current TV stations clear from the 600MHz frequency, then Band 71 can start to become more widespread, so there really shouldn't be a urge to purchase Band 71 phones for about 2 more years.

That naija boy!! Lol well it happened on both a blackberry passport and an Alcatel idol 4s windows phone, so I know it wasn't just one phone acting it was the bands going bad on me. Even if there's not that much availability, doesn't make sense to you to want to buy a future proof phone?

Well it's weird that the signal would start going out like that ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ Yeah I guess it makes sense to future proof, but I at least want to get my money's worth out of my current phone and then by the time Band 71 is available, I can then purchase a brand new phone, but that's just me lol.

Why do galaxies need to be compatible with all bands? They wouldn't be as reliable in subways as a device with the 600MHz frequency band like the LG V30, sure, but they'll still be really fast onT-Mobile in many other parts of the nation: https://mspoweruser.com/care-about-download-speeds-the-iphone-x-may-not-be-for-you/

It's important that a device is compatible with all besides just a subway. The 600 mhz band is being deployed in many rural areas, but like I said if you never leave the city then yeah there's no point in worrying about band 71, but if you do then yeah it's best to hold off until next year, otherwise you'd be wasting money for no reason. I'm going to wait and see what else besides the v30 has band 71 this year, may jump the gun on it if nothing else has band 71 come December.

Why is this established fact never, ever, except for pcmag, mentioned as a con in a review? The 2 modem conundrum. Thank you, MrShazam, for the link.

Hey Bernoulli what's up, just wanted to say that all previously released T-Mobile phones will still be compatible as long as the phone has the required bands to work, Band 71 will be an overlay to already existing frequencies that T-Mobile is currently using, they're not going to deactivate any LTE bands anytime in the near future.

And I agree, minus like I stated band 2,4 being removed outside the cities. What I'm saying is that if someone's going to drop 1k they might as well get something that will be ready when t mobile flips the switch, and they're not left behind for that band that's it.

Does this deal works for unlocked phones

There was an app you could download from Tmobile to see if your phone was/is compatible with their 600 MHz plans. I submitted my IMEI of my Galaxy s8 and it said that it was fully compatible so this talk of only the LGV30 having the proper bands is confusing.....
