I already have 10 lines and the plan I have cannot have more then 10 lines unless I change to a more expensive plan and I dont want to cancel and re-add lines 9-10 to get them free so I am trying to figure out the best mobile data plans.

Any ideas ?

Terms say this wont work if you cancelled any lines in the last 90 days.

Also if you cancel any of you active lines (even if you have 10 lines and cancel just 1) you will lose the free lines as well.

Seems like I can add a 6gb mobile data for $35. $10 instant credit and $25 free lines credit leaves me paying just taxes and fees for the 6gb data plan and I can combine it with the free tablet deal.

What exactly do you tell them to get 6gb of data for only taxes and fees?

How long are these free lines going to stick around on your account after adding them? (I won't be paying any taxes or fees after having the lines? ) or is it only the 1st month free? Thanks

ETA- T&C

Via bill credits. Plus taxes & fees. Activate all lines by 11/20/16. Qualifying credit and 3+ lines of qualifying service required. Deposit and $20 SIM starter kit may be required. Max 2 free/account. If you cancel service or switch to a non-qualifying plan you may lose bill credits. Allow 2 bill cycles. May not be combinable with some offers.

Anyone have extra sim card for T-mobile(willing to pay $5-$6 which is what it cost online)? - would be paying $40 to activate a new phone plan just with buying the sim cards unless you buy from amazon or ebay!

Use code FREESIM for free sim card.


If you are in store, you can get the $20 back as a credit on your first bill.

Spent two hours on Friday trying to clarify what it would entail to move my grandfathered plan to one that's eligible for this. Went ahead with it all, she supposedly placed the order, and now they show no record of the new lines being added or the sim cards ordered. Hopefully T-Force can resolve this for me.

Monthly bill credits just means instead of not charging for the line they charge you and then reimburse the cost through a monthly bill credit.

If you didn't get a free device nothing. If you got a free device the way it is paid off is over 24 months you are charged & credited back every month so when you cancel you are charged the remainder of the cost of the device

The tablet is supposed to be free AFTER bill credits, so if you decide to cancel, you are left with the bill for the tablet as well.

you've got better self control then I do. I got both- one voice and one tablet data. The tablet I can definitely use for my kids when I we travel. But the voice I have no real use I'm just banking on finding someone to join my plan and worse case scenario I dropes 72 over 24 month on an extra line. Which btw is 6gb of data while the rest of my plan is 2.5 which on its on is worth the $72

yes.

Line will probably be closer to $5/month and you need to pay taxes on the Tablet upfront (on $240).

Still a great deal for 2 tablets with 6gb data for upfront taxes and $10 a month.

FYI,

I spoke to a rep tonight.  The tablet is only free with the 6GB plan or above.  If its your first line of tablet data its 35/month regularly and you will get 25 off per month.  So besides the tax you will also pay 10/month for the 6gb plan.

That might be in your case. I'm on a simple choice promo plan, so I get 28GB of LTE before being throttled. My current tablet plan is throttled at 5GB. 23GB of LTE is not worth taking a free tablet instead in my case.

I would but my plan is limited to 10 lines and I am already at 10.
My plan includes 4gb of 4g and then 2g the data plan has 6gb of 4g and than 3g (according to the rep I spoke with).

They offer is extended till Tuesday. They are giving free tablets and this thing that goes into your cars diagnostic port and it give you in car wifi, tracks your car, how much gas you have, if someone does hard braking, and a bunch of other cool things for free. But the way they get you is they finance the item and give you bill credits for the next 24 months. It is like singing a contract BC if you cancell with in the 2 years the remaining balance becomes due.

Its a bit above $3 a line. Tax is $20.70
My $10 lines have fees of $5.93 why would this $35 line be less ? (unless some taxes are specific to voice lines).

Maybe we have different plans, the rep at the store showed me exactly what my charges would be. Besides, it didnt matter if it was for the voice line or the tablet line, was same amount.

I would not get the current tablets and rather wait to make sure that the plan works out ok with billing and then add the free tablet when there is a more attractive promotion.  As long as you already have tmobile voice lines you would get the 6gb tablet data plan for free (10 discount for existing customers, with another 25 for this promo).  Its a great deal.

I was offered 2 Tablets for free with 6gb for life by my tmobile business rep. When discussing the new car device called SyncUp DRIVE (http://explore.t-mobile.com/t-mobile-sync-up-drive), he said that also qualifies. So I asked for 1 of each. He didnt mention any deals about a voice line!
I dont really have a use for the tablet, but a free tablet and free data for life, so why not.
Now im thinking perhaps I should ask for the free voice line instead?
Thoughts?

Yeah you dont need a device to get the plan. He's saying wait until you know the bottom line costs. By not taking the "free" tablet you aren't bound to keep the line if you dont like the costs. And they'll be plenty of deals in the future for tablets.

Trying for the current tmobile offer for iphone 7 (or s7) upgrade to trade in my DW's old iphone 5 http://www.t-mobile.com/offer/apple-iphone-deals.html?icid=WMD_TMNG_Q416HLDY_7I6G3RM94N26651

But online it doesn't seem to allow and no way I'll make it to a tmobile store tomorrow!

Also wondering, in FAQs (scroll down on link) it says "Yes, customers must purchase a qualifying device on T-Mobile's Equipment Installment Program (EIP) to qualify for this offer.

Note: EIP breaks your equipment cost into 24 monthly installments and is subject to approved credit. A down payment may be required depending on your credit qualifications and the device memory variant you select."

Would something like this take a hard pull?!

If I signed up for T-Mobile ONE™ during the 4th line free promotion (or buy 2 get 2) will my price increase?
As a reward for being an early adopter of T-Mobile ONE, customers on these earlier promotions are exclusively eligible for a new promotion that saves them even more money than their current monthly service charge after taxes/fees.

If you have the 4th line free promo, you currently pay $140 plus taxes and fees for 4 lines. The new offer for those customers is 4 lines for $150 with taxes and fees included. These customers will save even more money than with the promo!
Buy 2 Get 2 price goes from $120 + taxes and fees to $130 with taxes and fees included.
You will lose any ‘free lines’ you have, but in virtually all cases you will save money vs either promotion.

Should be self explanatory, their billing is straightforward, with a breakdown by line, and line items for each like that are usually fairly descriptive as far as US cellular carriers go.

That's what I thought until this disaster, When I have a minute I'll post a screenshot of my bill, you'll see what I mean.

even with this I find them to have by far the best CS of any crier I dealt with (Cingular, att and sprint.).

Maybe it's b/c my 10 lines are set up as  business account but I always get people who are competent and speak English.

So I got my 2nd bill since adding the 2 free data lines.

The 6GB data lines come out to $3.32 after the $35 discount but they did not credit the first month and they also did not credit the $10 for the Tablet payment.
3rd bill update.

The $10 tablet payment finally posted and backdated as well.

The $35 6gb data line that was fully credited last month was only half credited this month. (Instead of $10+$25 x2 I got $10+$21 on one line and $10+$12 on the 2nd line)

Still waiting for T-mobile to get back to me but I figured out where the issue is.

Being that its the 3rd bill I got back credits for the first month partial charge of $12 + $21 but that kicked off the 3rd month automatic credits.

Anyone else get their 3rd bill yet.

Anyone take advantage of this promo?

I am on an old  Simple Choice plan and have 2 lines grandfathered in to unlimited data. I did a trade in on those 2 lines and upgraded to 2x s7, and now when I inquired as to when the monthly credit would come through, I was told I was not eligible for the offer.
I did the trade in process with a tmobile phone rep.
Any tips how to proceed?

They are horrific, this feels like sprint in 2007.
I think this promo really backfired. Personally not only do I regret taking advantage of it, I've been show how horrible thier customer sevrvice is, seriously contemplating switching to a new carrier.

They seemed like they knew exactly what they were doing, saw that I was told by a rep that I was eligible and verified they received my trade in devices. They promised to honor it and said it will take a few days to get set up and show on my account. (hopefully they will actually follow through).
The most amazing thing is, the wholes situation involved about 2 min of typing instead of 2 hrs of talking on the phone.

Not sure how much longer this will be around, but I basically added 2 additional free lines to my T-Mobile One plan today (just paid for SIM cards).

Currently T-Mobile has a promotion to add 2 lines for the price of 1. The way it works is it adds 2 lines for $20 each, then gives a statement credit for $10 per line every month (as usual, may take a few months and a bunch of tweets / phone calls to get the credits working properly).

Now, T-Mobile also has the Kickback program, where if you use under 2GB on any line (from the One plan), you get "up to" a $10 credit for those lines as well.

$20 -$10 -$10 =$0 (as long as I make sure the lines use under 2GB monthly).

What is meant by that? Every month $20 per line?
 Which is $40 a month for both lines minus the $20 credit? So your paying $10 a line each month plus 5-6$ tax?

T-Mo ONE doesn't have any taxes & fees - what u see is what u pay. So after $20 credit if he uses less than 2gb on each line he gets another $20 credit thereby lowering the price of 2 lines to $0.

As you bolded in your earlier quote he's paying $20 per line. Idk if that's because he's adding onto a bigger acct or because that's the standard.

Well, T-Mobile has been wonderful in offering free lines of service every few months (amongst the other wonderful things they keep doing).
So, my current plan is T-Mobile One (Unlimited everything) @ $120 for 2 lines + 2 additional lines at $20 each + 2 lines @ $0 each + 2 lines @ $10 each (with option to make these $0 each after Kickback).

Total is 8 lines for $160-$180 (or $20-$22.5 each).
