'ZDNET Recommends': What exactly does it mean?

ZDNET's recommendations are based on many hours of testing, research, and comparison shopping. We gather data from the best available sources, including vendor and retailer listings as well as other relevant and independent reviews sites. And we pore over customer reviews to find out what matters to real people who already own and use the products and services we’re assessing.

When you click through from our site to a retailer and buy a product or service, we may earn affiliate commissions. This helps support our work, but does not affect what we cover or how, and it does not affect the price you pay. Neither ZDNET nor the author are compensated for these independent reviews. Indeed, we follow strict guidelines that ensure our editorial content is never influenced by advertisers.

ZDNET's editorial team writes on behalf of you, our reader. Our goal is to deliver the most accurate information and the most knowledgeable advice possible in order to help you make smarter buying decisions on tech gear and a wide array of products and services. Our editors thoroughly review and fact-check every article to ensure that our content meets the highest standards. If we have made an error or published misleading information, we will correct or clarify the article. If you see inaccuracies in our content, please report the mistake via this form.

Whether you're debating making the jump over the T-Mobile, leaving your current carrier in the dust, or you're ready to upgrade your old phone, so it can, well, collect dust, there are plenty of deals to be found. 

Most of the time, however, there's the fine print you'll need to read through and try to decipher. Said fine print usually involves the type of phone you can trade in, the length of time the credits will be applied to your monthly bill, and whether or not there's a specific price plan required to qualify. 

Below you'll find some of the best deals the Uncarrier has to offer right now. Want to keep up to date on T-Mobile deals? Bookmark this page.

If you're on the Magenta Max plan, you can get Google's latest flagship phone for free, saving up to $800 with a trade-in. However, if you're adding a new line, you can score the device for as little as $399. Trade-in will also get you up to $300 off the latest Pixel phone.

The Samsung Galaxy S22 series has arrived at the Uncarrier and decisive shoppers can reap the benefits of preordering the latest smartphones. Right now, T-Mobile will treat you to a free Samsung Galaxy S22 with a new line on Magenta MAX.

Not on a Magenta Max plan? You can still get up to $400 worth of trade-in value for eligible devices and any other data plan or when you add a new line. The trade-in discount will be reimbursed to you over the course of 24 monthly bill credits.

T-Mobile will give you up to $800 to apply towards the iPhone 14 Pro model, making some of them only $200 as long as you meet a few requirements. First, there's the phone you're trading in; next is the price plan you sign up for. 

But, saving $800 isn't the only deal on iPhones that T-Mobile offers. If you purchase one from the carrier, you will get $700 off another iPhone 14 Pro. You can also still opt for the general $400 trade-in if you don't have the Magenta Max plan.

The credit will be split up and applied to your bill over 24 months. 

With the introduction of the Z Flip4 foldable phone, you can save up to $800 off the device with a new line and eligible trade-in. Again, those lacking the Magenta Max plan can still save up to $400 when they trade in their phone. You can choose from four different colors, including Samsung's latest signature Bora Purple.

You can get the newly launched Pixel 6a for free at T-Mobile right now if you add a new line with a qualifying rate plan. Alternately, if you just want to trade-in your phone, you can get it for free when you add a qualifying plan. You can also save up to $300 with a trade-in. The Pixel 6a comes in three different colors and features Google's signature Tensor processing chip and a 12MP ultra-wide and a 12.2MP dual-pixel wide camera.

More deals to consider

Samsung, Apple, and Google phones aren't the only discounts

 T-Mobile has several other promotions running right now alongside deals on Pixel, iPhone, and Galaxy phones. Most of these phones, however, are entry-level models that may not offer the best performance or older phones. That said, if you just need a phone, here is another option worth considering:
