    Looks like you can pick up a 16gb Nexus 4, on contract, for $50 then they offer a $50 rebate making the phone free. Wait a month then pay $200 early termination fee and you have a $200 Nexus 4!

    I would do this to AT&T or Verizon (Actually I wouldn't) but T-Mo needs all the help they can get. We need the competition.

    Plus the difference between what you paid for the phone and full retail price.

    You think Tmobile is stupid?

    Don't forget the cost of service while the phone was active plus any activation fees.

    No, you'd only have to pay the rest if you buy on the value plan



    On the classic plan you'd only be responsible for the ETF

    Too good to be true? Yeah right, this is no deal.

    $300 savings up front to be tied to a 2 year contract, no thank you. Not worth it.

    Paying the ETF and going to pre-paid is what the OP suggested. Unless there are some other costs associated with ETF, it seems like a brilliant idea.

    are you implying that one would have to pay the ETF plus the difference between what you paid for the phone and full retail price?

    Because that would make sense along the "too good to be true" lines...

    Why not? ARen't you going to have phone service in the next two years anyways? Plus the phone is unlocked just as if you bought it from Google.

    On the other hand, if you're comfortable with what the service provider offers (signal, data package, pricing, etc.) then signing the dreaded contract isn't really such a big deal. I got solid promotional pricing with T-Mo after signing a 2-year contract--despite the fact that every phone I was bringing to them (including my N4) was factory unlocked. I think it all depends on what your needs / expectations are. Yeah, I'm locked in," til 2014, but since everything works the way I want it to, it's not really an issue for me.

    This. I've been with T-Mobile since they were Voicestream...like 15 years or something. I have NO problem signing a contract with them.

    This time I didn't sign one though.

    In my area, T-Mobile has the fastest data speeds then anyone else. I still have an iPhone activated on AT&T, I get about 2Mbps- 12Mbps but at home, I get about 30Kbps-2Mbps.

    I HAD an iPhone on Verizon and cancelled it due to NO 3G or data at home.

    On T-Mobile, I get anywhere from 17Mbps-22Mbps even at home. I should have never tried anyone else but T-Mobile. I started a two year contract with them to get my N4 for $49 last week and haven't regretted it once.

    I don't get great speeds in San Francisco which is disappointing.
    Though significantly better than my iPhone 5 that's usually only on Edge even downtown!

    So by free, you mean $200 (assuming that actually works).

    You need to brush up on the definition of "free."

    Did you even read the OP's entire comment? Here, I'll show you:

    Usually, when you pay an ETF, you actually get off the contract. That's the whole point of an ETF.

    Plus if ordered online, they are currently waving activation fees!!!

    If you pay ETF, you do not have to give phone back or pay any differences. That is the purpose of charging you with the ETF.

    Unless t mobile has some thing else in their fine print....

    but according to the $200 ETF, almost every phone will be worth buying and then selling on eBay... Am I missing something?
