Reminder: Samsung Galaxy S3, Google Nexus 4, and others are “free” on T-Mobile

We’ve told you about the last ever deal that T-Mobile is offering for its subsidized smartphones. This is just a friendly reminder for the awesome phones that are up for grabs for $0, in case you missed the first one.

A little bit of background information, T-Mobile won’t be selling its phones on contract anymore starting in 2013, but it’s not going out without a bang. The carrier is giving huge discounts for the down payment of some of its phones.

You can get handsets like the Samsung Galaxy S3, the Samsung Galaxy S Relay 4G, the Nexus 4, and the HTC One S for free – after a mail-in rebate. However, you still have to pay for T-Mo’s smartphone plans for two years and its Equipment Installment Plan (EIP), with the latter setting you back $20 a month for the next 20 months.

As for the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 and the Galaxy Tab 2 10.1, you only have to pay $99.99 for the down payment.

Head to your local T-Mobile stores if you’re interested, but remember that the offer only lasts until December 31.

    Maybe You Misunderstand FREE….$20 per Month For 20 Months= A Not Free $400…
    EIP Should Have Been A Tip Off…..

    Forget T-Mobile’s phone offer. Hesd to your locsl WalMart. You will find the Galaxy 3 priced at $99….period. No rebate, no monthly payment. Best deal out there.

      Ahh, yea, but you have to be in a higher priced (subsidized) contract that essencially ends up greater than $20/mo.. more like $40/mo.. so.. ahh.. yea, brains not included in that statement.

      It’s called math.. might want to try it sometime. :D
