Most U.S. carriers are busy prepping the release of what’s set to become one of the country’s hottest smartphones this year, the iPhone 5. T-Mobile, however, is left without an Apple phone to sell, which brings us to its “Magenta Deal Days” Zero Down promotion – where you can select any 4G phone from its lineup for free,  Samsung Galaxy S3 included.

Obviously, T-Mobile is hoping to win some customers by selling the phones at $0, but there are quite a lot of buts here.

In order to make use of the zero pricing deal, you’ll have to cover the down payment for the device of your choosing in T-Mobile stores. This ranges from $49.99 to $149.99. You’ll get your money back with the mail-in rebate card. And on top of signing up for the carrier’s Value Plan and Unlimited Nationwide 4G data plan, you’ll also have to make a $20 EIP (Equipment Installment Plan) monthly payment for the next 20 months.

If you’re cool with the above, let’s check out what 4G Android phone T-Mo is offering. There’s Samsung Galaxy S3, Samsung Galaxy Note, Samsung Galaxy S Blaze 4G, Samsung Galaxy S2, T-Mobile MyTouch, HTC One S and possibly more.

The Magenta promotion will go from September 21 – 30 and it’s only available in T-Mobile’s retail and branded stores, as well as through customer care and Telesales. No need to rush through it, as you have plenty of time to weigh your decision.  See anything you like?
