FREE Phones At T-Mobile On Saturday

On Saturday, June 19, every phone in every T-Mobile store is free. This is a first-of-its-kind promotion, which includes even the most recently released phones such as the myTouch 3G Slide and the Garminfone.

To take advantage of the offer you must switch to any family plan, or add a new line to an existing family plan. Each contract comes with a two-year agreement, of course.

Other bargain and tech bloggers have suggested that the Nexus One may not be a part of this deal. T-Mobile's press contact confirms that it is a part of this sale. No phones are excluded

Some phone tips you might be able to use..........

The Daily Press mobile manager Amber Nettles had this to say about the sale:

If you can get a Nexus One for free with a contract, do it. The phone features a 1 GHz
Qualcomm processor, 5MP camera with autofocus, LED flash and 2X digital zoom, and a 3.7-inch touch screen. From personal experience (I own a G1 and my friends own other T-Mobile phones), the Nexus One is the best phone available through T-Mobile, at this time.

Former Blackberry users (or just those accustomed to having physical keyboard) might want to try out the new MyTouch 3G Slide: a mid-range Android-based phone with a full QWERTY keyboard. The latest MyTouch iteration includes a physical keyboard, 3.4-inch touchscreen and a 5MP camera with autofocus and flash.

A new offer recently revealed is the Garminfone, another Android-powered device, which combines the
Garmin navigation system with the functionality of a smartphone. Specifications (which couldn't be found on the T-Mobile site, but were listed on Garmin's) include an impressive memory (4GB Flash), a 3.5-inch HVGA touchscreen and a 3MP autofocus camera.

Non-Android fans should try the powerful HTC HD2, a Windows mobile phone, or the BlackBerry Bold 9700.

The HD2 features a 1GHz Snapdragon processor, a 5MP camera with autofocus and an LED flash, a 4.3-inch capacitative touchscreen and the Windows Mobile 6.5 operating system.

The Blackberry Bold 9700 features a 3.2MP camera, a 2.44-inch screen, an optical trackpad, physical keyboard and the beloved Blackberry operating system.

Finally, there's a slim chance T-Mobile's Galaxy S will make it to stores in time for Saturday. The phone, which just passed through the FCC (as reported by, should have the following: 720p video recording, a 1GHz processor and a 5MP camera. The big draw, however, is the rumored Atmel maXTouch screen, which is said to be 2-3 times faster than current multi-touch displays (by having a response time of 7 milliseconds). I doubt T-Mobile would unveil that phone on Saturday, but keep an eye out for it in the future.
