T-Mobile earlier revealed that they have extended the switch and upgrade program to its prepaid customers. Starting tomorrow, July 29th, prepaid customers can switch to Metro by T-Mobile and enjoy a discounted unlimited plan and a free 5G phone with their device trade-in.
If you are a customer from another network, you can bring your old device (including a flip phone) and get upgraded to a new 5G smartphone for free. You can also enjoy the $25/month plan that comes with unlimited talk, text, and high-speed data with 5G included. Usually, the plan costs $50/month but you can enjoy it at half the price. Taxes and fees are already included in the offer.
“Our smartphones are our lifelines, and yet a generation of prepaid customers are being left behind in the 5G era by providers and plans that keep them locked on old technology and slow, over-priced connections. If Cricket or Boost won’t upgrade their customers to 5G, Metro by T-Mobile sure will,” T-Mobile Consumer Group Executive Vice President Jon Freier said. “At Metro by T-Mobile, we put customers first. The biggest 5G network at half the price of Boost or Cricket, unlimited data with 5G included AND a free 5G phone? Talk about an easy upgrade.”
Compared to Metro by T-Mobile’s unlimited plan with 5G, Cricket is offering a similar plan at $60/month. Boost Mobile, on the other hand, has an unlimited plan but does not include 5G yet.
