T-Moblie puts all its smartphones and tablets on sale this Saturday
Remember when we told you that T-Mobile may have something special in stock for this Saturday? Well, it turns out that the rumors were definitely on the right track. On September 24, T-Mobile will be holding the rightfully-named “Yes, Every Smartphone Is on Sale” sale, during which all of the carrier's smartphones, tablets, and mobile broadband devices will be available at discounted rates

The discount comes in the form of a mail-in rebate ranging from $25 to $200, depending on which device you choose to walk out with. For example, a brand new HTC Sensation 4G comes with a $100 mail-in rebate, which effectively drops your net down payment to $99, and picking a BlackBerry Bold 9900 will bring $150 back in your post box setting the net down payment on the smartphone down to that same $99 figure.

Of course, there are a few strings attached to the deal. Signing up for a 2-year Unlimited Value plan is among the requirements with another one being the equipment installment plan, according to which the remaining value of the device you pick must be paid to the carrier in 20 interest-free monthly payments.

Nevertheless, if commitment is not an issue and you are already considering taking advantage of the carrier's sale on Saturday, here is how all T-Mobile smartphones and tablets will be priced. However, be aware that the special will be available in T-Mobile stores only.

I see why T-Mobile is doing this. Value Plans make the company more money quicker because you're still paying off the phone. Which I think is bogus anyway because I sign a contract to get a phone not the rate plan. But my main concern is going to be existing customers. Because I know for a fact that existing customers, if not out of their contract, have to pay some type of migration fee to switch over to those new plans. I'm glad I'm not working that day, so I don't have to explain to all my cheap existing customers why they don't get a chance to be even cheaper.

yeah lets sell classic plans for 140 a month and make money slower than the value plan were they charge a max of 130 for two lines. that is stupid. You must be one of those guys who cant talk to customers because you cant do simple math. this saves you ten and you know what you are paying for your phone instead of t-mobile drinking all that extra cash. This is all about putting the buck on the back of the customer for phones. That way when AT&T buys them they have not spent a dime on phones for months. This will give more money to The parent company because as i stated they did not spend a dime on phones. Yeah have a good day.
