T-Mobileplans to give away free 4G phones for two days as part of a Father's Day sale that begins Friday.
The sale includes all 4G phones supported byT-Mobile's network, but the phones aren't exactly free when you get them.
A spokeswoman for T-Mobile explained that anyone wanting to partake in the sale will have to sign up for a two-year contract and pay for the phone up front. T-Mobile will then give them a mail-in rebate card, making the phone free.
A bit tricky, but eventually it's free, assuming you send in the card.
Among the phones included in the sale are the HTC One S, the Samsung Galaxy S II, the Nokia Lumia 710 and the BlackBerry Bold 9900. The T-Mobile Springboard tablet is also included in the sale.
“We want to say thanks to fathers for all they do and keep them easily and affordably connected to family throughout the entire year,” said Andrew Sherrard, senior vice president of marketing for T-Mobile, in a prepared statement.
