    After it is all said and done, it's not really worth it. Till you pay the $50 up front, at least $70 for one months service and the $200 ETF, not worth it since the Play Store is still in stock. Doing it this way you'll pay $320 up front while you wait for the rebate to come, then with Ebay and Paypal fees leaves very little room for profit. Lot of hassle for no reward, now if it was still out of stock on the Play Store, then you could make some money doing this.

    I just went thru the checkout process. I would only have been charged $3 in sales tax....I did not actually finish.

    You're absolutely right. That's why I did not go thru with it. But if you planned to be on t mobile anyway, the first months service is no big deal. I just tossed the info out there. For some, the full $349 plus tax and shipping is more than they can come up with at one time.

    T-Mobile phone subsidies are now just interest free loans. If you sign a contract it is considered separate from the subsidy contract, but they are loosely tied together. What you would end up with is a $549 charge for the phone and a $200 ETF. $749 is NOT FREE!!!! Do not be tempted to do this.
    On the other hand, I did sign the contract and get the N4 through T-Mobile, I am very happy with it. I will pay the phone off early and have a fairly small monthly phone bill. The advantage of the higher price for the phone is that I was able to walk out of the store with the phone, and if I have any issues I can just return it to the store and get a new one.

    Tmobile stopped the classic plan altogether?

    It's a really good deal. I would definitely try it. Has anyone done this and been successful at just paying the ETF?

    You need to brush up on the definition of "free."
    You might want to read my original post again. At the end I did mention the $200. But if you stick with the contract, the phone is indeed free....

    All classic value plans will be extinct by the end of the year unless you are grandfathered in just to let you guys know.
