Valentine's Day is supposed to be a day to show your love and of course carriers are making deals to entice you to buy new phones. On Saturday, tomorrow, T-Mobile is offering all its 4G smartphones for free with new two-year contracts of the classic plan.
The most amazing freebie is the Samsung Galaxy S II that normally sells for $229.99 and was named the top smartphone of the year. Other top free smartphones are the super-camera HTC Amaze ($179.99) , Nokia Lumia 710 ($39.99) or Samsung Exhibit II 4G($49.99). The T-Mobile Springboard tablet which usually sells for $429 without a contract is free with a new contract.
What's the hitch? The deal does not apply to existing T-Mobile customers. You have pay for the device upfront and then you get a rebate in the form of Visa card. The classic plan can cost as much as $20 a month higher than the value plan.
