[Deal Alert] Trade In Any Working Tablet, Get $100 When You Purchase The New Samsung Galaxy Tab A At Best Buy

The announcement of Samsung's new Galaxy Tab A didn't generate much excitement because of its not-so-low-end price. However, you can now grab it more cheaply at Best Buy. You will receive $100 for trading in a working tablet so long as you also purchase the Tab A, which starts at $230. There are a few caveats to look out for, though.

Sprint Promises T-Mobile Customers At Least $200 For Their Trade-Ins When Porting A Line

Sprint, in a move that shows its increasing concern about the competition, has announced that it will give any T-Mobile customer a minimum of $200 towards a new device when they trade in a working device and port over their number.

This offer will be available until April 9th, and customers can combine it with Sprint's existing contract buyout deal, where T-Mobile customers get $350 per line in the form of a Visa prepaid card to cover their first bill or early termination fees.

T-Mobile Says It Will Beat Any Carrier Smartphone Trade-In Deal, Or Pay Customers The Difference Plus $50

There are a lot of smartphone trade-in programs from both retailers and carriers, and to be frank, they suck. In just about every situation you can get more for your current gadgets by selling them yourself on secondary markets like Craigslist, eBay, or Swappa. The only reason to sell gadgets to carriers (or any retailer) is the convenience factor. But T-Mobile is positioning itself as the self-styled people's champion of smartphone trade-ins, or at the very least, the best option among its competitors.

A new press release says that T-Mobile intends to rigorously "track the market," adjusting its trade-in prices every day to make sure it stays ahead of carrier alternatives.

Un-carrier Day 2 Of 3: T-Mobile Announces Operation Tablet Freedom, Will Sell 4G LTE Tablets At Wi-Fi Only Prices

Saturday, April 12th is increasingly looking like a big day for T-Mobile. Yesterday the carrier introduced its new "Simple Starter" plan going for $40. Now, for day 2 of 3 "un-carrier" announcements leading up to this weekend, T-Mobile has unveiled "Operation Tablet Freedom."

The company will then provide 1GB of free 4G LTE data for the remainder of the year in addition to the 200MB of free data lasting for the life of the device. Like yesterday's announcement, this deal will become available two days from now.

T-Mobile Announces Un-Carrier 4.0 – Will Pay Early Termination Fees And Buy Your Old Phone If You Switch [Update: Snarky Ads]

In between pointed jabs at the other national carriers, T-Mobile CEO John Legere announced the carrier's newest "Un-carrier" plan. As the rumors indicated, T-Mobile is going to pay the early termination fees (ETF) when customers switch to T-Mobile from Sprint, AT&T, or Verizon. Sounds great, but there are a few caveats.

Best Buy Will Currently Give You A $262 Gift Card For Your Old Nexus 4, No Matter Its Capacity

Get this - Best Buy is offering up to $262.50 for Nexus 4 trade-ins. This offer is valid regardless of whether you're handing over the 8GB or the 16GB model. As long as your device is in relatively good condition and you have the necessary peripherals, you're good to go. Just move quickly. Considering the Nexus 4's $100 price drop last month, this probably won't go on for long.

Unsurprisingly, how much you get depends on the condition of your device. Best Buy will only hand over $262 worth of gift card if the device is in perfect condition, but as long as it's at least in good shape, you could still net $250.

AT&T Takes On T-Mobile With "Next" Upgrade Plan: Payment Installments On New Hardware, Trade In Option After A Year

Whether or not you want to partake in T-Mobile's "Uncarrier" experiments, they're obviously having an effect on the wider American carrier landscape. Today AT&T announced plans to counter T-Mobile's JUMP! upgrade/trade-in plan with one of their own, called Next. The Next plan will allow similar installment payments on new phones with no money down, and users will be given the option to trade in their existing phone and begin paying off a new one. The program will begin on July 26th, and it will be open to new and existing customers.

There are some stark differences between the T-Mobile and AT&T plans: first of all, the upgrade option for the larger carrier is a full year, as opposed to six months with T-Mobile.

HTC Extends $100 Trade-Up Program Again: Purchase Date Moved To May 19th, Redeem By June 19th

It's no secret that HTC has had some issues getting component suppliers to take it seriously after a few bad years. This has led to delays in getting the much-improved HTC One on store shelves. As such, the Taiwanese company has already extended its $100 trade-in program once, and now it's doing so again. You now have almost another full month to take HTC's free money when you buy the One.

The previous cut-off date for buying a One was April 26th, but now you have until May 19th. When you have your new device in hand, register with HTC and send in your old device.
