T-Mobile has announced a new limited time promotional offer for its prepaid brand MetroPCS.  New customers who port their number over can now get two months of unlimited service for free. A selection of phones from Samsung, LG, and Motorola are also being given away for free.

The Fine Print

What's a deal without fine print?

This offer certainly comes with a little bit to dissect.

To start, to get two months free, customers must choose MetroPCS's $50 unlimited LTE data plan.  After subscribing to the plan for two months, and making two on time payments, MetroPCS will give customers a $100 prepaid Mastercard. Customers who elect to subscribe to MetroPCS's $60 unlimited LTE plan are also eligible to receive the $100 prepaid Mastercard under the same terms as the $50 plan.

The difference in cost between the two plans is that the $60 plan includes 10GB of hotspot data while the $50 plan does not include any hotspot data. On either plan, MetroPCS will temporarily slow down a customer's data speeds if they have consumed more than 35GB of data in a month AND the network is experiencing a lot of traffic. Once the traffic gets relieved speeds return back to normal.  Both plans also limit video streaming to a resolution of 480p.

Additionally, activation of each line now requires a $10 activation fee plus any applicable taxes.  MetroPCS's cell phone plan prices do at least include all taxes and fees.


Those who have a number already active on the T-Mobile network or have been active on MetroPCS in the past 90 days are ineligible for the $100 prepaid Mastercard offer.  The offer is unavailable in Connecticut, Rhode Island, and Miami-Dade.

Free Phones From MetroPCS

MetroPCS is giving away the following phones for "free" to switchers.

  • Samsung Galaxy J3 Prime, regularly priced at $139
  • LG Aristo 2, regularly priced at $139
  • Moto E4, regularly priced at $129
  • ZTE Avid 4, regularly priced at $109
  • Cooldpad DEFIANT, regularly priced at $99

Switchers will get their phone of choice for "free" through an instant rebate. Customers will still be responsible for paying any applicable taxes.

Like with the $100 prepaid Mastercard offer, the free phones are only available to customers who are not currently active on the T-Mobile network and who have not been active on MetroPCS in the past 90 days.

If you are a current customer MetroPCS will still give you a discount on the listed "free" phones if you want to upgrade your current phone or add a line. A $60 instant rebate is being offered on the ZTE Avid 4, while a $70 instant rebate is being offered on the Motorola Moto E4, and Coolpad DEFIANT. The LG Aristo 2 and Samsung Galaxy J3 Prime include an $80 instant rebate.

Whether you are a new customer porting in, or a current customer, there is a limit of 5 discounted phones allowed per household.
