T-Mobile has announced a new promotion on smartphone purchases. Beginning tomorrow, July 27, qualified buyers can get a new phone for zero dollars down. For a limited time, the No. 4 carrier in the U.S. is offering some of the most popular smartphones at nothing down including the: iPhone 5, Samsung Galaxy S IV, and HTC One. These users can also take advantage of T-Mobile’s recently introduced Jump upgrade program. For would-be iPhone 5 buyers, please note that this deal is only for the 16GB model. The 32GB and 64GB models are not available at the promotional price. At zero dollars down, 16GB iPhone 5 buyers would pay $27 per month for 24 months, or $648. Jump allows T-Mobile customers to upgrade their phones twice every 12 months after six months of enrollment. This latest T-Mobile promotion is a nice deal for anyone in the market for a smartphone. However, it should be noted that it doesn’t lower the overall cost of your purchase. Rather, it only drops the price you pay upfront.
