Black Friday may still be a week away, but AT&T is getting things started a week early.
Starting tomorrow, November 22nd, AT&T will launch new deals on iOS and Android smartphones. The big blue carrier will be offering an iPhone XR, Pixel 4, Galaxy S10e, or LG G8X ThinQ for free when you buy your new phone on a 30-month installment agreement.
These deals do require you to add a new line of service and that you pair your new phone with an unlimited plan. Once you do, you'll get bill credits spread out over 30 months that will cover the full cost of your new phone.
Also announced this week are Cricket Wireless's Black Friday deals, which are starting on November 22nd. First up is an entirely new unlimited plan aimed at customers who want to bring their own phone. The Unlimited BYOD plan is priced at $40 per month and available to customers who bring their own device and activate a new line. Cricket says the plan offers its fastest speeds, and you can add mobile hotspot for $10 per month if you'd like.
The catch is that the Unlimited BYOD plan will only be available for a limited time. You'll be able to sign up starting November 22nd and it'll run through January 30th.
Also launching on November 22nd are some Cricket Wireless device deals. These include $100 off any iPhone purchase when you port in your number and get a new line on the $60 Unlimited Plan. Cricket will also offer your choice of a new phone from companies like Samsung, Motorola, LG, and Nokia when you switch and sign up for a select rate plan.
On Black Friday, November 29th, new and existing Cricket customers can get a Nokia 3.1 Plus for $39.99 or an LG Stylo 5 for $79.99. And then on Cyber Monday, December 2nd, switchers can get a Samsung Galaxy S10 for $399.99 or a Galaxy A10e for $9.99 with an unlimited plan.
