Awesome! I like how they allow you to finance the phone and the cost turns out running cheaper. Sounds like T-Mobile has some kinks to work put but non-the less a positive step forward for the mobile carrier. Offering customers all mobile devices that are current combined with the truly 4G network, I think that this is one of the best mobile carriers on the market today. I also believe that T-Mobile has the right idea with no contracts, I was literally paying 117% more for the same services through another mobile carrierG«™.go T-Mobile go!

Prepare to be rejected if your credit score is not A+, you can't reasonably complete a credit application, your annual income is too low, or you have a bankruptcy or foreclosure in your credit history. No, you will not make three payments and vanish into the forest. This will be much like a car note. That means repossessions are possible. A new reality show, where this big man shows you a repossession order, and then demands your handset? Call me insightful :). Since it's locked to T-Mobile and it's now illegal to unlock without the carriers permission, there will be a poster child who actually gets fined, sued, or even criminally charged for unlocking the device (and they will snitch on the cell phone shop that did the unlocking) . It's not actually your phone until it's paid off and T-mobile releases the ESN code, or network lock.
Let's see whose made an example of first?
