T-Mobile “Zero Down” deal broken down: initial thrift at what cost?

Having a deal such as the one T-Mobile is running starting this month, one that offers smart devices for "zero down" before charging a certain amount of cash each month should raise red flags for the average consumer. It did for SlashGear, and here we're going in to take a closer look at a few key devices - and their prices - before and after that discount takes effect.

T-Mobile’s “Zero Dollars Down” announcement takes another stab at game-changing

If you've been following along with the way T-Mobile is attacking the mobile service provider market this year so far, you know that they are (at least appearing to be) doing a pretty good job of shaking things up. They started by introducing the "un-carrier" plans that tossed out the idea of a 2-year contract, added "JUMP!" to allow users to switch from one device to the next when new technology is introduced to the market without penalty (effectively), and this week aim to set another fire a their competitors' feet with a zero cash down plan for every single service-providing device in their store.

Verizon Edge brings “flexible equipment payment plan” to battle T-Mobile

While companies like T-Mobile and AT&T aim to lead the way with new and improved ways of being transparent with smartphone customers, Verizon Edge (introduced today) brings big red into the fold. This "flexible equipment payment plan" allows users who would otherwise have had to pay a relatively large fee to switch from one phone to another on the same payment plan to upgrade instead inside 6 months. This after having spread the cost of the phone over 24 months and paying off at least 50% of the phone in the first place.

T-Mobile lambastes AT&T Next with claim that it is “all wrong”

Yesterday, AT&T revealed its Next plan, which allows for monthly device payments on a new smartphone or tablet annually, with monthly prices falling between $15 and $50. If the first thing that popped in your mind was "T-Mobile" when the plan was announced, you're not the only one, and now the latter carrier has stepped forward with some biting things to say about AT&T Next.
