T-Mobile has announced several promotions for its prepaid brand MetroPCS. New subscribers who port their number in can get an iPhone 6s for just $49.99. This is just one of several special offers available to new port-ins.
iPhone 6S Offer Terms And Conditions
The $49.99 iPhone 6s deal is part of MetroPCS's back to school promo. Customers that switch to MetroPCS can get $200 off the purchase of any phone. The iPhone 6s is currently on sale for $249.99, but new customers get the additional $200 off.
This offer is available in store only at participating MetroPCS locations. There is a limit of 5 phones allowed to be purchased per account and household. To get the discount MetroPCS requires you to subscribe to one of their unlimited LTE data plans. The prepaid provider sells 2 unlimited LTE plans and they are as follows:
- $50/month - unlimited everything, but no hotspot allowed and video streaming limited to a maximum resolution of 480p. Save - get 2 lines for $80/month.
- $60/month - unlimited everything. Includes 10GB of 4LTE hotspot data before throttling. Video streams limited to a maximum resolution of 480p. Save - add additional lines for $30/month. A maximum of 4 lines allowed.
MetroPCS has a generous data prioritization policy in place that works similar to other unlimited plans on the market. Those that consume more than 35GB of data in a month may have their data speeds temporarily reduced during times of heavy network congestion. The prices shown includes taxes. There is a $10 per line activation fee.
