T-Mobile Offering All Phones for $0 Down
T-Mobile today announced a promotion that will allow customers to purchase new phones with no downpayment. T-Mobile typically asks for a downpayment of about $99 when customers purchase new phones.

Samsung Offering Up to $120 Toward Galaxy Note 5, S6 Edge+
Samsung said it will make several monthly device payments for people who buy a new Galaxy Note 5, S6 Edge+, S6 Edge, or S6. Under the terms of the promotion, Samsung will reward customers with up to $120 in payments towards their new phone as long as they register with Samsung and buy the device through an installment plan with their carrier.
Confusion about this offer
This is not a sale, you do not save the downpayment. That specific payment amount is simply deffered into your monthly payments. So instead of the $99 down and $20 per month, you're paying $25 per month.
This isn't a response to anything. T-mobile does not need to respond to the two other cash grab programs offered by the other carriers. Jump is a true upgrade offer, Next and Edge are not, they are just cash grabs.
No mention of this being in 'response' to anything?
