T-Mobile will accept your old OnePlus phones as trade-ins towards a OnePlus 6T
- Starting November 1, T-Mobile will accept trade-ins of OnePlus devices towards a new OnePlus 6T.
- This applies to ANY OnePlus device, from the OnePlus One to the OnePlus 6.
- Your trade-in will very likely net you a $300 credit, regardless of which device you turn in.
At the OnePlus 6T launch event in New York City, the company formally announced its new partnership with T-Mobile. The Uncarrier will be the exclusive United States home to the brand new smartphone — the first time a wireless carrier has carried a OnePlus device.
As part of the partnership, T-Mobile is offering a special trade-in program to help cut down on the cost of a new OnePlus 6T. There are 30 eligible trade-in devices, and eight of them are OnePlus smartphones: the OnePlus One, OnePlus X, OnePlus 2, OnePlus 3, OnePlus 3T, OnePlus 5, OnePlus 5T, and OnePlus 6.
In other words, if you have an old OnePlus device lying around, you can hand it over to T-Mobile and they’ll slash down the price of a OnePlus 6T for you.
According to the information we have, you can get up to $300 off the price of a OnePlus 6T with an eligible trade-in. It is not quite clear what the limitations are on that statute, but from reading the various press releases and our notes from the launch events, we’re inclined to believe that trading in any OnePlus device to T-Mobile will get you $300 off.
We assume the device will need to be in good, working condition to be eligible, but other than that you should get $300.
With a $300 credit, you’ll pay $280 for a brand new OnePlus 6T, or $11.67 per month for 24 months on T-Mobile’s Equipment Installment Plan. T-Mobile exclusively carries the Mirror Black edition with 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage at the usual retail price of $579.
The trade-in deal and the general sales of the OnePlus 6T at T-Mobile stores begin on November 1 at 9:00AM ET.
