T-Mobile is offering free 5G phones in exchange for old phones

In a webcast today, T-Mobile announced a new free 5G phone upgrade offer and the ‘Great Unlimited Trade-Up,’ a program that gives competitors’ non-unlimited customers the chance to switch to T-Mobile’s unlimited plan for up to the same price they’re already paying. The announcements joined T-Mobile’s Home Internet launch and its T-Mobile Hometown 5G commitment to rural American communities.

The ‘Free 5G Upgrade’ plan is giving Americans the opportunity to trade in their current non-5G phone in exchange for a free Samsung Galaxy A32 5G handset. The promotion is available to both new and current postpaid T-Mobile customers and includes any smartphone that’s still in working condition, including old models and even flip phones.

The ‘free’ aspect of the phone deal involves 24 monthly bill credits rather than an outright full-value credit, meaning you should plan to stick with the carrier for a while. Joining it is the Unlimited Trade-Up promotion, which targets consumers who are still on a limited-data cellular plan.

In that case, customers who have plans with competitors are given the opportunity to jump to T-Mobile’s unlimited data plan with 5G for the ‘same or better price’ than they’re currently paying for their limited-data plans. The promotion also applies to all former Sprint customers (T-Mobile now owns Sprint), as well as all postpaid T-Mobile customers.

According to T-Mobile, the 5G phone upgrade and unlimited trade-up plans will kick off on April 18 and remain available for the rest of 2021. These promotions are joined by T-Mobile’s Home Internet announcement. With this launch, consumers who live somewhere with T-Mobile 5G coverage can use the network to get high-speed Internet at home.

Samsung is offering even better headphones with its Cyber Monday Galaxy deals

If you didn’t buy a Galaxy phone during the Black Friday extravaganza sale, we’ve got an even better deal for you. Samsung is selling its lineup of Galaxy S10 and Galaxy Note 10 phones for the same low prices as Black Friday, but now they come with an even better set of headphones. Instead of a free pair of Galaxy Buds, you can get a pair of AKG N700NC M2 folding noise-canceling headphones, which retail for $300.

Considering you’re already saving up to $300 on a brand new Galaxy phone, these deals are a no-brainer if you’ve been kicking the tires on buying one. Here’s everything that’s on sale:

You can pick any color of Galaxy S10 or Note 10 (which vary by storage) and either black or silver for the headphones. We can’t personally vouch for the sound quality of these headphones, but AKG is a solid brand and this model checks off all the boxes: noise canceling, folding design, and include a carrying case, airplane adaptor, 3. 5mm audio cable and USB-C charging cable in the box. At any rate, we’re pretty sure these deals won’t last past today, so make sure you hurry.

They’re not in the box but Samsung is still offering free earbuds with the Galaxy Note 20

If you’re planning to buy a Galaxy Note 20 when it ships next week, you might be in for a surprise when you unbox it. Samsung has opted to ditch the wired AKG earbuds from the box, but there’s some good news: It isn’t leaving customers high and dry. If you prefer to get a pair of wired USB-C earbuds, Samsung will send you a pair free of charge.

According to Samsung, “consumers that prefer the USB-C wired headphones, our customer care team can offer them on request” and will receive a pair free of charge. It’s not clear how long it will take, but likely several weeks. The offer is only for Notes that don’t include the USB-C buds in the box, which applies to all North America phones.

You can contact Samsung customer care online or by calling 1-800-SAMSUNG. You’ll need proof of purchase, of course, but otherwise, Samsung will ship out the earbuds straight to your home. Presumably, they will be the same AKG-tuned earbuds that are included with the Galaxy S20 phones, which are quite good and retail for $30.
