T-Mobile drops upfront price of Nokia Lumia 925 and 521 to zero

T-Mobile just started selling the Nokia 925 in the US less than 10 days ago for $49.99 upfront, but starting tomorrow that new Windows Phone 8 device, and indeed nearly all of the smartphones that T-Mobile sells, will have the low, low upfront price of zero.

T-Mobile's press release says that beginning on Saturday, July 27th, the wireless carrier will offer the Nokia 925, the older Nokia 521, and other smartphones like the Galaxy S4, the HTC One, the 16 GB version of the iPhone 5 and others with no money down for an unspecified "limited time". The promotion still requires that the customers pay off the rest of the phone's price over 24 months. For example, the Lumia 925 has a per month price of $20 and the Lumia 521's per month bill will be just $5.

Obviously, this special deal still means you have to pick a monthly chat, text and data plan for each phone. Also, the zero dollar upfront deal does not extend to the 32 and 64 GB versions of the iPhone 5. However, it's still a pretty impressive summer sales promotion on T-Mobile's part and we wonder if any other other carriers in the US will find some way to follow suit.

fun. I might pick one up. For those who have doubts about T-Mobile's value, compare your costs on mobileplancheck.com

Did no-one on the news team think that the headline would've been better off at least hinting at the fact that other devices are included?

that was what i was thinking.

galaxy s4 and htc one? just as important if not more? even iphone 5 is included!

not sure how good this deal really is, but if you are going to mention it, mention it applies to all!

I'm starting to think that this site give special preferences to MS products. The iPhone 5 is not even in the tag section.

We are the fanboys your mother warned you about.

you don't see the iPhone because Apple controls discounts on their devices

but, if you read, they actually do inculde an iphone! just the 16 GB version.

yes. Although the monthly installment payment is $27, normally it's $21 + $145.99. So you're not getting an iPhone for $649-$100. It's still a $649 phone

Should not the title be "T-Mobile drops upfront price of most phones to $0 in a special promotion"

it clearly says so in the text.

Yes, all but Apple.

Either you can't/didn't read the article or you read that the iPhone 5 16GB is included and made an incorrect statement anyway. I'm not sure which of the two is stupider.
