T-Mobile tipped to offer Galaxy Note 7 at half price with a BOGO promo

The Uncarrier crusade that T-Mobile launched not long ago, and which made AT&T and the others bleed both subscribers and revenue, was supposed to lose steam in the next few months, as analysts tipped how AT&T is preparing a veritable onslaught of promotions for the fall flagships, including discounts on the iPhone 7. However, the rumors that AT&T will start clawing market share back from T-Mobile with the launch of the iPhone 7 might have been a bit exaggerated, as T-Mobile is obviously not planning to stand still, too.

The latest proof of that notion is a tweet from serial tipster @evleaks, who posted the cryptic "TMO PROMO: GN7 BOGO" tweet that you see below. The closest thing that comes to mind from these abbreviations is that T-Mobile is going to launch a buy-one-get-one-free discount on the Galaxy Note 7. This is not far fetched at all, given that Samsung and the US carriers already ran such a promo for the Galaxy S7 and S7 edge. Still, considering that the Note 7's price will likely be north of $800, a half-off discount is very welcome news, if it materializes.

How so if they're able to do the exact same thing?

4. fyah_king unregistered

I'd make $600 on the 2nd one just like I did with my s7 edge.:)

That doesn't make it better, you making a profit doesn't make a phone better.

Not the phone itself so....have yet to see why two of the same one is better than the other one.

Especially when that one phone isn't really any better.

If true not a bad deal, may pass on it since they're going to require a new line activation and don't really need a second phone anyway.

They'll rope in plenty of people to whom price is the ONLY concern when choosing a carrier. However, once those people (well, at least some of them) get tired of the lousy coverage, especially the horrendous data coverage, then they'll reconsider and go back to Verizon or AT&T.

The Note 7 will rope in plenty of people who want the best, most powerful, most functional, most flexible smartphone in the world. They'll be encouraged by the fact that it's predecessor met all those criteria, and had the highest customer satisfaction ratings of any smartphone.

When last did you use T-Mobile's network?

On it right now. Sucks. But better pricing. I miss VZW network. But I Switched to T on a 4 line deal. The 4th line is free and have 10GB each. More than enough. With the cost of all 4 phones, I pay $370 a month. On VZW,, the same is almost $500. Plus I have 2 devices on VZW. iPhone 6+ and iPad Pro 9.7. Rings me up to a $500 phone bill per month. But when I had 6 devices on VZW, I was paying nearly $700, because we all had to share 10GB, so I added an unlimited data for $120 extra. With taxes and stuff, it was ridiculous. VZW is greedy. $50 per line, plus phone cost, plus taxes and insurance is easy $100 per line. Now they have gone up on data $5. The FCC needs to force all carrier to GSM.

It's a promotion, it's not about going cheap. And "cheap" doesn't always mean "inferior".

The article mentioned how AT&T plans to offer discounts on IPhone 7, so it's not only android.

Just let him rage. It's only going to get worse for him this year.

It's a carriers promo. Stupid. I guess you didn't see that ATT will be offering promos on the new IPhone. Just as stupid and ignorant as Kiko007 and Mxy.
