HTC One S now available from T-Mobile, trade-in a smartphone and get $100 back


The T-Mobile HTC One S is now available T-Mobile. If you’re looking to save a little cash, trade-in an old smartphone and T-Mobile will give you a guaranteed $100 when you purchase the HTC One S (or any other 4G phone). If you bring in an iPhone, T-Mobile will double the offer and reward you with a guaranteed $200. If T-Mobile deems your trade-in is worth more, they will reimburse you accordingly.

Qualifying smartphones include any Android, iPhone, Blackberry, Windows Phone, or Symbian 9.0+ device and customers will be required to sign up for a new two year contract which is subject to a $300 early termination fee. Unfortunately, the cash back offer isn’t immediate. To receive your “cash” you must mail in the trade-in handset, trade-in voucher, and proof of purchase. Once all your paper work is processed, T-Mobile will mail you a pre-paid debit card within 60 days.

If you’re looking to buy a new phone or had plans to pick up the HTC One S today, T-Mobile’s Magenta Deal Days is a great way to save some extra cash. Anyone trading in an iPhone for the HTC One S will essentially get the phone for free after the $50 mail-in rebate and trade-in reimbursement are processed.

Are any of you planning on purchasing the HTC One S? Will you take advantage of the Magenta Deal Days offer or will you try to recuperate a little more cash by listing your phone on CraigsList or eBay?

In partnership with The Wireless Source Inc.

    Holy crap. HTC One and $100 back… why can’t Verizon compete with this?

    • Omgee mobile

      Because $100 dollars mailed and a 6-8 week mailed rebate isn’t really that much of a deal. I’m waiting until the announcements at Unboxed before I decide if I’m getting the One S. This deal goes on until the 8th of May.

  • MrMrMan

    Verizon has better phones.

  • OutofPlace

    No way I would take this deal and trade my G2X for $100. I could get way more than that on Craigslist. I think I have an old BlackBerry propping open a door somewhere in the house though…

  • Nathan D.

    Cool deal let see if I can make a friend bite this deal :-)

  • ZzX44

    Why are they giving 2x the amount for fruitphones?

    • http://htcsource.com Nick Gray

      Because most people trading in a fruitphone will be coming from another service provider.

  • Vance

    Posting from my brand new One S! Finally! I worked on the tmo store manager for a while but got $50 off in store, waived activation, $50 off first bill, $50 MIR, $100 trade in for my HTC Desire, plus a free external 1950 mAh battery pack… Just in case :)

    • professandobey

      Good job! Dave Ramsey would be proud.

  • Everseeker

    What you work him over with… a Tire Iron?
    That sounds like a good deal…

    • Vance

      I think it was a little bit easier to negotiate because there are 3 t-mobile stores in a 7 mile radius (not counting Walmart and Costco) and it was a new activation, not just an upgrade. Anybody on here should be able to get the same thing!

  • http://www.focuszonedevelopment.com Homncruse

    $100 for my old, unused G1? Hm… any documentation on smartphone limitations?

    • Vance

      Go to their website and click on the get a quote section to find out for sure how much you’d get.

      • Jesse

        Just found out that they’ll give $100 for my old Dash (HTC S620, “Excalibur”). So, apparently Windows Phone includes the old Windows Mobile handsets.

        • Jesse

          Though, it’s not very likely I’ll sign up for another contract. I’d rather buy outright and go prepaid. Got to see if I can do the $30 Monthly4G 100 minutes + unlimited text and data with a microsim.

      • http://www.focuszonedevelopment.com Homncruse

        Lame. Only $10 for my fully-functional excellent condition G1 :( Curse you misleading advertising!

        • Jota169

          Did you use the promo code in the flyer? With the promo code it is guaranteed that they will give you $100, with out that promo code they will give you the $10 you saw.

            I did not… Nice catch. I can’t read.
