T-Mobile will give you a free tablet if you purchase a monthly data plan with a 1GB of data or more
T-Mobile is celebrating Valentine's Day by giving you a "Sweet Tablet Offer." Starting this Thursday (February 12th) through next Monday (February 16th), sign up for a postpaid data plan with 1GB or more of data each month, and the carrier will sell you a free Alcatel OneTouch Pop 7 for $0 down and $0 each month for 24 months. The deal is structured like this because it allows T-Mobile to charge you full price for the slate if you leave the carrier before 2 years expires. You need to be well-qualified, and you are responsible for the sales tax on the tablet.

The Alcatel OneTouch Pop 7 features a 7-inch screen with resolution of 1024 x 600. A dual-core 1.3GHz MediaTek MT-8312 CPU is onboard with the Mali-400 GPU handling graphics. 1GB of RAM is inside along with a puny 2.4GB of storage space available to the user. In the likely event more memory is needed, a 32GB capacity microSD slot is available. A 2MP camera graces the back of the slate and a .3MP snapper can be found on the front of the tablet. The included 3240mAh battery keeps the lights on, and Android 4.2 is pre-installed.

You can pay as low as $20 monthly for a T-Mobile data plan offering 1GB of data, or as high as $70 each month for 11GB of data. And don't forget, T-Mobile gives away 200MB of free data each month to its tablet-bearing customers.

Pretty weak offer, you can get a 1gb plan for $15 and a free Galaxy Tab 3 from Sprint. Better tablet than this.

How is this a weak offer? If you break contract with Sprint you pay an ETF fee of $350. If you break the deal with T-Mobile you pay $160......

This is a giant POS of a tablet not even worth $160. The user experience will be herrendous. Not worth it at all IMO. At least Sprint was offering a Samsung Galaxy Tab, this is just crap.

No such thing as "free" in this industry. Tablets are a scam. All the "free" ones are junk and you're stuck paying a minimum of ten dollars a month for a meager amount of data. Move on...

Agree. It's a very weak offer. To me, this tablet is too crappy I won't be able to enjoy any data on it.

Independent Root Metrics results for second half 2014 were released today and Sprint beat T-Mobile and in a few areas AT&T and Verizon in reliability, call performance and text performance. The only area where Sprint trailed the others was in data speeds which it is quickly closing the gap with Spark. Additionally, Sprint isn't even halfway done with their 800mhz and 2.5ghz LTE deployments and its coverage area is much larger than T-Mobile's. Sprints massive network overhaul efforts are finally starting to payoff after tens of billions of dollars in upgrades. Sprint has already announced by the end of this year they will have LTE speeds well above 100mbps.

My mother got the similar offer on Black Friday and that one requires you to sign up for their Equipment Installment Plan (EIP). It's 7 dollars a month for 24 months and if you cancel you pay off the whole balance (basically the tablet's price.) A little better if you don't want to keep paying for the 4G on the tablet. Make sure this one doesn't include the EIP if you don't want to keep paying extra.

It's the exact same offer from Black Friday. They DO charge you the monthly installment of $7 a month to pay off the tablet, but you also get a $7 credit every month as long as you keep the data plan. Your mother isn't paying anything extra for the tablet. And neither will anyone who takes advantage of this offer

Thanks for clarifying; I did see some website mention the monthly credit but she never mentioned if it was in the statement.

That tablet isn't even worth the sales tax on it, especially not if you have to pay full price if you leave the carrier within 2 years...

7 inch screen? Nah. I'll stick with my Nexus 6.
