T-Mobile iPhone 5 white official

Ahead of T-Mobile's iPhone 5 launch on Friday, the magenta operator has announced a new promotion in an effort to get a few more customers to pull the trigger on its official iOS smartphones. T-Mobile this morning revealed a new trade-in offer that allows customers to bring an iPhone 4 or iPhone 4S into their local T-Mobile store and receive an iPhone 5 for a down payment of $0. That leaves the buyer with just the monthly payments to take care of, which are set at $20 per month for 24 months. The iPhone trade-in could help take care of those as well, though, as T-Mobile says that, depending on the value of their trade-in, customers could receive an additional credit of up to $120 to put toward accessories or their monthly bill/payments.

The iPhone 5 will be available from T-Mobile starting on April 12 at 9 a.m. at all T-Mobile-owned stores as well as the carrier's website. The good news for customers interested in snagging a Big Magenta iPhone is that there will be plenty of time to take advantage of this new trade-in promotion, as it'll be running through June 16.

While some folks may prefer to sell an old iPhone on eBay or Craigslist to help pay for new T-Mobile iPhone, there's no doubt that this new trade-in offer from T-Mo is a quick and easy way to get rid of an older iOS smartphone while also saving some cash on an updated model. Are you planning on picking up an iPhone 4, 4S or 5 from T-Mobile once they hit store shelves?

Dustin T. Robles Sprint has always done that no matter the condition of your phone
Teron Facey Nope I used Craiglist and Kijiji I know I won't get all my money back but if I use those sites or eBay I know I'm going to get at least half my money back.
Mark Harmon Worth every penny!
Stephen Bauer I've always learned to sell them on gazelle I've always got double the money then trading my phones in to carriers
Martin Smeaton Trade in? No. Sell on craigslist? Constantly!
Reese Woodson If I trade my AT&T 32GB iPhone 5 for an T-Mobile iPhone 5, how much would they give me off?
Constantino Morelli I traded in my I phone 4s for the blackberry z10 to help with paying full retail. Verizon gave 170.00 towards the purchase.
Nick Sanford what maakes you want to buy them all outright? just curious
John Saunders I usually get 80-90% rrp back from selling on eBay, even after 1-2years! Shame this appears to be a US trade-in thing r/t UK :(
John Smith Good idea in theory, but more than likely it'll be like Gamestop and you'll get 20% or less of the original cost back. Give me back 75%+ and then we're talking.
Tyler Saddington Sort of, I always sell them on eBay and then use that money to buy my new phone (I buy all my phones outright)
