If you’re with T-Mobile, buying smartphones on contract will soon be a thing of the past, as the carrier is changing its subsidy-based business model for 2013 and beyond. Before taking its final bow, T-Mobile is giving customers the chance to scoop up some of the hottest Android phones from their lineup for $0.

The list of “free” phones includes the Samsung Galaxy S3 and Galaxy S Relay 4G, the HTC One S, and the Google Nexus 4, as well as phones from other camps. You can also get the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 and Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 for $99.99.

Although you still have to get the money out to pay the down payment for the handsets, which range from $99.99 to $299.99, you’ll recoup the investment back via a mail-in rebate. On top of your choice of value plan, you’ll also have to pay $20 a month for the next 20 months for T-Mo’s monthly handset installment.

If this sounds appealing, the “Zero Down Sale” will be offered starting Friday, December 21, in T-Mobile stores. The promotion will end on December 31, so there’s still plenty of time to think this through.
