metropcs-free-phone-for-everyone
T-Mobile MetroPCS customers are in for a treat today as the prepaid carrier announced new offers available for them. Here's what's in store for you as a MetroPCS customer:

Free Phone for New and Existing Customers (Phone Upgrade/New Line Add)

MetroPCS is currently offering free (after instant and mail in rebates) phones to both new and existing customers. The offer is applicable to those who want to give their phone an upgrade (upgrades are subject to a $15 upgrade fee) or decide to add a new line on their plan.  If either scenario applies to you, you may be entitled to one of the free phones MetroPCS is giving away:
  • Alcatel Fierce 4 - free after $59 mail in rebate
  • Alcatel OneTouch Fierce XL - free after $49 mail in rebate
  • Alcatel Tru free - after $29 mail in rebate
  • Coolpad Catalyst - free after $19 mail in rebate
  • LG 450 - free after $29 mail in rebate
  • LG Aristo - free after $59 mail in rebate
  • LG K7 - free after $39 mail in rebate
  • Samsung Galaxy Core Prime - free after $39 mail in rebate
  • Samsung Galaxy On5 - free after $59 mail in rebate 
  • ZTE Avid Plus - free after $29 mail in rebate
  • ZTE Avid Trio - free after $29 mail in rebate
  • ZTE Cymbal - free after $29 mail in rebate
Free Phone for Porting
 
On the other hand, if you are porting your number from another non-T-Mobile based carrier, the phones listed above as well as any other phone costing $60 or less is free out the door and these additional devices are free after mail in rebate:
  • HTC Desire 530t - free after $19 mail in rebate
  • LG K10 - free after $19 mail in rebate
  • ZTE Zmax Pro - free after $39 mail in rebate 
The free phone promotions end April 5, 2017. Customer must pay applicable taxes on devices. Mail-in rebates are not available in CT, RI or Miami-Dade County, FL. To be eligible for a rebate your account must stay active for two full months. The rebates are in the form of a prepaid Master Card which will be mailed to you within 12 weeks after your rebate form has been received.

Bonus Data Offer

Finally, MetroPCS has launched a bonus data offer for customers under their $50 monthly plan. Normally, this plan comes with 5GB of 4G LTE data. With the offer, this plan will include up to 8GB of LTE data each month. This bonus data offer is only available for a limited time.

The monthly rate for a single line under this plan is $50/month. You have the option to add up to four more lines as an additional line for $30 per month per line.  

These offers are in conjunction with the new T-Mobile One plan and KickBack that T-Mobile launched yesterday for its postpaid customers.

  1. For those who wish to upgrade their phones, will they need to trade in their current phone? Will they need to keep the service for 60 days? 30?

    Or can they just say "Good day, may I have a new phone please?"

  2. Are they already was 8GB?

    1. Right, T-Mobile's press release makes it sound like it's new, but the $50 plan has had 8 GB since October.

      Delete
  3. Anyone have a suggestion on what the best phone choice would be for an existing customer? It looks like the Galaxy On5 or the LG Aristo is probably the best?

  4. Please make a a minor correction. Metro is not a Tmobile mvno but a prepaid division owned lock , stock and barrel by them directly. Thanks.

  5. Where do I get these prices, the website says nothing about free phones?

  6. "if you are porting your device your number from another carrier"
    What does it mean to port your device (as opposed to your number) from another carrier?

    1. Typo corrected.Thanks for pointing it out.

  7. This post is misleading. The phones are only free after a mail in rebate despite the fact you have to buy (and pay for) the phone in store. And you only get the mail in rebate after you pay for the second month of service. Otherwise, you won't get the rebate at all and your phone isn't free. This site used to mention details like this in its posts.

    1. Thanks for posting this.
      Dennis still does include terms detail like this in his posts, he is very detail / gotcha oriented but I guess he does not edit / advise CT's posts.

      Delete
    2. I've updated the post with information about the rebate details.

    3. It looks like the rebate is instant for porting in a number with no active MetroPCS account. Upgrading or porting in a number while there is an active account is mail-in rebate only. Adding another line for a new number isn't very clear - terms and conditions on the website has sections for both mail-in and instant for this case!

      Delete
  8. Hi Dennis, do you know when is LG K10 2017 based phone with Nougat, 2GB RAM, fingerprint scanner, etc., will be released by Metro PCS?

    This site is very useful, thank you very much!

    1. No idea. It's been reported that the 2017 K10 is coming to T-Mobile as the K20 Plus but I haven't seen any date mentioned for its arrival or if it will be offered under the MetroPCS brand.

  9. Has anyone had an experience, good or bad with a Metro rebate? I generally avoid these, it's usually a lot of work and I have bad luck. Seems that I get rejected more often than accepted when I get involved with a mail in rebate attempt. Never tried Metro though.

    1. My Prepaid rebate card came in the mail a few days after I paid for my second month

  10. Do you know if there is a plan minimum? Like boost offers a free phone for porting but you have to get the 50$ plan. Is this the case for metro, or can you port and choose the 30$ plan?

    ReplyDelete
  11. I asked at two different stores. $30 plan is eligible for rebate.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Really! Than thats great! Glad I saw this deal before porting to boost!

      Delete
    2. What ports are eligible? Like can I port a number from freedompop, ting, etc?

      Delete
    3. Ting CDMA (Sprint based) is eligible, Ting GSM (T-Mobile based) is not. FreedomPop numbers are VoIP numbers. The terms don't specifically exclude VoIP numbers so they should be eligible.

      Delete
  12. I have a question, I just got metro a week ago before this plan was offered. Since I'm a customer already how do I get the ZMAX pro free? Or is that exclusively for new customers only?

    ReplyDelete
  13. So is there anyway to avoid the $15 activation fee for the new phone. When I called a corporate store they said I could order the phone online and have call-in customer service activate it to avoid the fee, but now I see the promotion is in-store only?!

    ReplyDelete
  14. Can i be a existing customer with metro already and get the zte zmax with mail in rebate if i pay the 15$ upgrade fee?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I think the upgrade price is $99 after instant rebate and the $15 upgrade fee in-store or $99 after mail-in rebate with no upgrade fee online. To verify log in to your MetroPCS account to see the upgrade prices. It has to have been at least 90 days since your last phone purchase to be eligible for the upgrade pricing.

  15. All low-end phones. Snapdragon 210 chipsets.

  16. I've had the Samsung Galaxy T399N for 3 years. Every year around the time of my original purchase month, my phone starts lowering the amount of available memory I have. I had 3.47 two weeks ago and now it's down to .94. I haven't done ANYTHING different. I even uninstalled an app, and deleted bunches of unnecessary stored data, etc. I don't use Facebook, Bluetooth or any of that stuff. Just 1 game and 7 small apps-My Health, Publix Supermarket, a diary, all of which are on my external SD Card. I truly believe the company does this purposely so that I'll be forced to buy a new phone and upgrade to more storage, even though I've been using the exact same amount since I bought the phone. Is there any way to outsmart them so I can keep my phone. I'm not tech savvy at all and don't use hardly any of the stuff that's preinstalled, like utube, etc.

    1. You can free up space by clearing app caches and deleting or disabling unwanted apps, and deleting old picture messages. See Five Ways to Free Up Space on Your Android Device for more tips.


      If you don't care about potentially losing old app data like text messages and IMs etc., the best way to free up space is to do a factory reset. Just be sure that your contacts and calendar are synced to Google back up any photos and music you want to save to the SD Card or a PC. When you set up the phone again with your Google account your contacts and calendar events will be restored. See: How to reset Android without losing data - Android - Android Smartphones for a guide.
