The net neutrality controversy surrounding the recently launched Binge On service is far from over, and some of you may understandably be opposed to the way T-Mobile is advertising its service at the expense of the competition.
But everybody likes free money, and that’s what the “Uncarrier” is currently offering its new prepaid clients to make amends for any false moves. Technically, free phones is what you’re looking at, but outside T-Mo’s promo, they’re worth a little dough, so it’s like you’re getting free money.
All you need to do is join a Simply Prepaid plan starting at $40 a month or $50+ Simple Choice Prepaid plan in a qualifying store from tomorrow, February 3, and the Samsung Galaxy Core Prime, LG Leon, ZTE Obsidian or Coolpad Rogue can be yours with no charge or contractual obligation.
No charge once you settle your mail-in rebate affairs with Magenta, that is, as you’re still required to cough up $50 off the bat.
The Leon LTE is probably the best choice of the above listed bunch, looking much better than your typical ultra-low-end Android, with a curved body and rear physical buttons, and sporting a few decent features, like Snapdragon 410 power, and 5.0 Lollipop software.
The Galaxy Core Prime isn’t half bad either, at least at $0, with 5.1 Lollipop in tow, 5 and 2MP cameras, as well as a 2,000 mAh battery. Meanwhile, the ZTE Obsidian and Coolpad Rogue are most likely not worth your time, even for free.
