Get another 5G phone for free from T-Mobile with ‘any’ trade-in

Written by admin

Just in case all killer deals introduced by T-Mobile with more or less fanfare in the past week alone weren’t compelling enough to convince to switch or talk to a friend about switching to the leading “Un-carrier”, yet another very interesting promotion seems to have appeared (silently) earlier today.

While trading in an existing phone to get a new one at a steep discount is often considered inconvenient, especially by buyers of low-cost devices like this 6.52-inch mid-ranger, the inconvenience practically disappears when T-Mo is willing to accept anything that works. Yes, even dumb phones and archaic smartphones that got their last software update when HTC was still a thing. You can even trade in an HTC.

In fact, the TCL 30 XE 5G joins the undoubtedly popular “5G For All” program as an alternative to the T-Mobile REVVL V+ 5G and OnePlus Nord N200 5G right now, although the latter is probably still a better choice… unless of course it goes away soon.
Normally priced at $198, TCL’s “free for all” 5G option comes with a decidedly modest 1600 x 720 screen resolution and a totally unobtrusive 13+2+2MP triple camera system on the rear, as well as silky smooth 90Hz display refresh rate technology. , the same moderately powerful MediaTek Dimensity 700 processor as the just released TCL Stylus 5G and a hefty 4,500 mAh battery with 18 W charging speeds.

In short, this is certainly not a bad phone… if you can get it for free, which is also possible with a new line and without any trade-in. In either case, of course, you’re looking at monthly billing credits that amount to the above-mentioned full value of the handset after two years.

If you opt for trade-in, keep in mind that your old device must be “undamaged” and fully functional, which sets this deal apart from Verizon’s trade-in program. Less restrictive from one point of view, however, that last promo is more selective when it comes to the phones you’re allowed to throw away, which can’t be “dumb” or extremely outdated.
