In an effort to promote its 4G line, T-Mobile has announced that all of its 4G phones (as well as a selection of its 4G tablets) will be available for free on February 11. This sale includes the Samsung Galaxy SII, the HTC Amaze 4G, the BlackBerry Bold 9900, and the HTC Radar 4G.
Of course, T-Mobile isn't just giving phones away willy-nilly. You'll have to sign a two-year contract if you want to take the network up on its offer of a free cell phone. Then there's the fact that you do actually have to pay for the phone up front, and will have to apply for a refund of the cost of the device via mail-in rebate. If you were planning on upgrading (or switching networks) and that doesn't put you off, though, this is a rather nice opportunity to save a couple hundred dollars
"T-Mobile has a commitment to make the 4G experience affordable and accessible to everyone, so this sweet deal on smartphones and tablets is our Valentine’s gift to consumers," said John Clelland, senior vice president of marketing, T-Mobile USA. "No matter where loved ones live, T-Mobile wants to bring them closer with unlimited talking, photo sharing, video chatting, texting, and more."
The deal will be live all day Saturday, February 11, and will be available both online and in participating stores.
