T-Mobile: Free Windows Phone 8 devices during Cyber Monday

T-Mobile just launched its first two WP8 smartphones a few days ago, but the new devices can now be bought for the low, low price of absolutely nothing at all for today only.

The T-Mobile website has posted up word that for today, Cyber Monday, the Nokia Lumia 810 and the HTC 8X are now free with a new two year contract. Normally the Lumia 810 would be priced at $149.99 with the same contract while the HTC Windows Phone 8X would be priced at $199.99. As with all Cyber Monday sales, these prices are for T-Mobile's website only.

Keep in mind that the HTC price also includes a $100 mail in rebate as part of its "free" price, so you will still have tp pay $100 up front for that smartphone. The Cyber Monday deal for the Lumia 810 is free up front with no mail in rebate.

T-Mobile is currently the only one of the three US wireless phone providers that sell Windows Phone 8 devices to offer a true unlimited data plan so if that is important to you you might want to check this deal out.

I have to pay full price on my tmobile phones because I don't have the classic phone plan. So What I can do now is to start up a new line and get the cheapest plan and cancel it so it comes down to $260 for the phone.

My plan now have 5 phone lines, 5GB 4G and unlimited text for $165 a month. The coverage is bad but you can't bet that price.

The big problem here is that T-Mobile has poor coverage and no LTE almost anywhere. While their 3G speeds may be pretty fast, it's not nearly as fast as even poor LTE.

I just switched from TMobile this weekend -- paying $200 in disconnection fees, just because of this problem. Plus, I get a 20% discount on AT&T through work making the money get recouped in 6 months time or so... and I get the Lumia 920, so it's icing on the cake.

My big problem is with people at Neowin calling these things what they aren't(look at you John), in this case saying it's free, it's bad enough the phone companies call it that, but to continue it, shame on you.

These cost you a 2 year contract, if you cancel that contract early it costs you big
It would be like getting a mortgage and saying your new house cost you nothing
because you haven't paid any of the mortgage yet.

to Shyatic, I get speeds of 16mbps with HSPA+ with a latency under 150ms, at this point I wouldn't notice any extra speeds from LTE, even tethering.

and JaredFrost, I don't think anyone in the USA would interpret this to mean anything other than Free on 2-year contract. Certainly anyone who frequents this site would know. And the $200 ETF isn't really "big" when that was the original on contract price of the phone.

Checked out the Nokia 810 at the store on Friday, and it looked like crap. If you want to update to WP8, you may go for HTC, or wait for better one later.
