Looking for the perfect Mother's Day gift? T-Mobile might be able to help out. From May 10, the so-called "un-carrier" is expanding on its already impressive iPhone trade-in program, and is effectively offering iPhone 5 handsets for $0 down when an iPhone 4 or iPhone 4S is traded in. Furthermore, in some cases, customers will be able to reduce their monthly payments for the sixth-generation smartphone from $20 to $15. As first reported by TmoNews:
The offer allows both new and existing qualified customers to trade-in an iPhone 4 or 4S and receive a trade-in amount that helps wipe out the down payment on the iPhone 5. The result being a “$0 down” net payment for customers and a decreased monthly payment of $15, down from $20 saving the customer $5 per month.There are, however, a few reasonable requirements concerning the iPhone 4 or iPhone 4S customers are trading in. Namely, the handset must power on, it must not have a damaged screen, and it must not be liquid damaged or feature any other physical damage. The good news, though, is that the above offer will be available in-store until June 16, so unless you're looking for a last minute Mother's Day gift, there's no rush. T-Mobile launched the iPhone 5 back in April, and less than one month later the network announced that it had sold an impressive 500,000 units. Besides the aforementioned trade-in program, the No. 4 iPhone carrier has also promoted the handset through airing a series of TV ads that aim to criticize its competition.
