T-Mobile launches 10-day “$0 down” sale to close out the year

T-Mobile’s looking to get some more sales in its book to close out the end of the year (and, possibly, the world) with a new sale it’s administering starting tomorrow and lasting for the rest of the year. This “$0 down” sale will let you get some great devices under T-Mobile’s value plan program, and includes some heavy hitting devices such as the Samsung Galaxy S3, the HTC One S, the Samsung Galaxy S Relay 4G, and even LG’s Nexus 4.

Yes, that’s right — the Nexus 4. As ironic as that is considering Google’s difficulty in getting stock for the Google Play Store it’s an option that you have to consider if you can’t wait for LG to gets its supply problem under control. Keep in mind that you’ll still have to pay something up-front when you head into a T-Mobile store these last 1.5 weeks .

You’ll have to wait for mail-in rebates to take effect before you get to the down payment prices shown in the charts below. Beyond that, the typical $20 monthly installments don’t get any cheaper than they usually are so the net down payment is the only thing you’re really saving on here. That doesn’t mean this isn’t a great deal, though, so be sure to see if your local stores have any of these devices in stock starting tomorrow if you’re interested.

T-Mobile also has a couple of other devices on sale that won’t exactly have free net down payments, but will still be quite cheap compared to their usual prices. The Samsung Galaxy Note 2, for instance, can be had for a net down payment of $100, as well as Samsung’s Galaxy Tab 2 10.1. These prices are in effect until the last day of the year so be sure to act fast — remember, the world might not even be here after tomorrow!

    $0 down means just that… Unless that’s an instant email rebate then no, you still pay out of pocket and wait 4-6 weeks for the rebate check and 4-6 weeks for you to get your nexus 4

      That’s what I said in the post.

    hmmm $20 per month over the course of a 2 year contract means you’re paying $480 (after rebate). sounds kind of sucky considering you could get a Nexus4 for $349 or $299 if you just wait until they’re in stock again mid to end of january.

    • codemonkey85

      And how much would the plan cost be per month if you just bought it outright? This does not seem bad at all, although I would like to know the details of this 20 dollar value plan first.

      • TBN27

        Subtract 20 dollars from any value plan and that’s how much you will pay a month before taxes and fees.

        • codemonkey85

          Okay, I see now that I misunderstood the table. The 20 dollars per month is for the device, not the plan. Gotcha.

    • scoter man1

      You’re gonna be waiting longer than January I think, sadly.

      • JRomeo

        lucky for me I ordered two weeks ago, and mine is expected to ship mid january

    • Glenn Urrea

      True. But for the other phones its not a bad deal.

  • ArmageddonX

    Nexus 4 out of stock or I would take advantage of this offer & leave Sprint.

    • Glenn Urrea

      You should leave Sprint anyway.

      • ArmageddonX

        Ohh trust me, I’m working on it =)

        • Glenn Urrea

          I was with Sprint for ten years. Just moved all my lines to T-Mobile. World of difference. Speed wise and price wise.

          • ArmageddonX

            Sprint is who I am with right now. My issue is, they wont release me from my contract & I can’t afford my ETF. I also won’t have enough for a new phone until around March. I’m in a bad spot.

          • Glenn Urrea

            I feel your pain. I have 5 lines and waited as long as I could until the ETF was affordable. It still cost me $270 to leave but I’m now saving $100 a month with T-Mobile so its totally worth it. The money I made selling my Sprint phones pretty much covered the ETF. Good luck to you.

          • ArmageddonX

            Yes, I am in the exact situation you were in. I am happy you have found a way out! =) Thanks for the advice.

    the EIP program is only for 20 months over the course of a 2-year contract. So your phone will be about $400.

    Sunday I Just bought 2 SG3′s from Bestbuy Mobile online for $65 each for my upgrade…I got both of them in the mail yesterday. No gimmick, hidden fees or fine print. Just new contracts.

  • Oleg Ostrovskiy

    They changed the Nexus 4 monthly price. I only pay $15, for 20 months. 300+200=500 but I got it a month ago.

  • JerryJoeJohnson

    Just what “responible” Americans need, more financed purchases.

  • NardVa

    How can T-mobile offer the Nexus 4 as part of the promo when most stores don’t carry the phone and the ones that do don’t have any in stock.

  • supremekizzle

    Best Buy usually gives you the mail in rebate instantly, does anybody know if this will be the case with this promotion? Thanks for any help my phellow phandroids.
