AT&T Offering T-Mobile Customers Big Bucks to Switch

by Fox Van Allen on January 03, 2014

Woman using smartphone in winterIf you’ve been thinking about switching your cell phone service in the new year, AT&T has a deal for you. Switch, and the company will pay you some cash. For T-Mobile customers, the deal is especially sweet: AT&T is willing to pay you up to $450 to switch.

“Beginning Jan. 3, under the limited-time offer, T-Mobile customers who switch to AT&T can trade-in their current smartphone for a promotion card of up to $250, which can be used toward AT&T products and services,” the company explained. “Trade-in values will vary based on make, model and age of the smartphone, but many of the latest and most popular smartphones will qualify for a value of $250. T-Mobile customers can receive an additional $200 credit per line when they transfer their wireless service to AT&T and choose an AT&T Next plan, buy a device at full retail price or activate a device they currently own.”

The AT&T offer is meant to boost interest in its new no-contract Mobile Share Value plans, which offer a $15-per-month discount if you already own your device. Ultimately, you’ll likely spend more for the AT&T service than with T-Mobile, but it is a higher quality network for 4G LTE data communications.

For more on the limited time AT&T offer, check out the company’s promotional website. And if you’re looking for a great inexpensive no-contract phone to bring for the monthly discount, check out the Moto G and Moto X, both solid phones that just had their prices slashed this week.

The offer of AT&T looks attractive but it is not easy to get it. Still there are few catches…. People are smart, AT&T customers will go over toT Mobile, and then switch back for the credit within 14 days, att can’t verify account ownership time. They will basically just lose a ton of cash on tmobile… Again…T-Mobile will also announce a big relief at CES-2014…. The main attraction of T-Mobile is its cheaper unlimited plans which AT&T don’t . we should wait till next week before Jump….
