We are so accustomed by now to T-Mobile regularly shaking the wireless industry, that we get a little anxious when the company is quiet for a while. Don’t worry, though. The Magenta guys have no intention of resting on laurels. In fact, yesterday the network launched the next step of its UnCarrier project. The new program is called Score and will help users save money on new phones. That some great news especially for those who are planning to get an upgade in the next few months.
T-Mobile Score program – How it works.
Score is a membership based program that is available to every single T-Mobile customers regardless of whether they are on a prepaid or postpaid plan. If you are a T-Mobile customer, you can join Score for just $5 per month and in 6 months you will be able to get an entry-level handset for free. If you are patient enough to wait for 12 months, T-Mobile will reward you with some pretty serious discounts on high-end smartphones from the top shelf.
Now, let’s make one thing clear. That entry-level phone we just mentioned (T-Mobile gives the Alcatel OneTouch Evolve 2 as an example) is not exactly free, since you will have to pay $5 per month membership payment for 6 months, but it still is a pretty good deal.
Within a half a year in Score will cost you $30 and for that much (or little) money you will be able to get a phone that costs $80 today. If you can wait entire year, the carrier will let you buy a smartphone like the Samsung Galaxy S5 with at least $150 discount. That’s what we call generous savings.
T-Mobile has been causing other carrier quite a lot of pain with its UnCarrier initiative. The Magenta network renounced contracts this way giving its customers much more freedom while at the same time keeping prices at a very competitive level. Moreover, the company offers a wide selection of phones so virtually everyone is able to find what suits him or her the best. With the new Score program, users will be able to buy premium devices at lower cost, and if they don’t aim for high-end phones, they might get themselves a decent handset for free. How cool is that?
