T-Mobile Ups Free Tablet Data to 1GB for Voice Customers

T-Mobile today announced the second of three new initiatives meant to help lure in customers. The company is targeting tablet customers with its latest offer, which will give current voice subscribers a total of 1.2GB of free tablet data until the end of the year. T-Mobile already offers 200MB to all tablets for free and is adding 1GB to that pot. Second, T-Mobile is selling LTE-equipped tablets at the same price as their Wi-Fi-only counterparts. That means a 16GB Apple iPad Air with LTE will cost $499 instead of $629 when purchased through T-Mobile. T-Mobile is carrying over its Contract Freedom initiative to tablets, as well, and will pay the ETF for customers who break their tablet contract and switch to T-Mobile. Last, T-Mobile is offering tablets for $0 down with corresponding monthly payments for those who prefer to finance their hardware.

Well technically, AT&T has them for $429

If you sign a 2 year contract. $629 - $100 instant credit for 2 year contract - and then another $100 credit.


For most people on the network already, it's a measly $10 a month to share the data on the account, so not a biggie there - and far superior speeds and coverage.

I don't seen any compelling reason to run to T-Mobile.

iPad Air Price $630

I don't see the update that they are offering the iPad Air for $499, still comes out to $630 standalone.

Or is the offer limited to only existing customers?
Possibly because it doesn't start until April 12.
I am paying on one that I bought in December and hoping they will credit me $130 off the price

No WiFi Only Models

T-Mobile does not sell WiFi only models on their website or in store. Unless I missed any iPad models that may be WiFi only, last time I checked all of them were 3G/4G capable.

If they mean selling their 3G/4G tablets for the same price as a store like Google or Best Buy or Apple is selling a WiFi only version of their tablets, then sure, Id be interested in upgrading my Nexus 7 to a new version.
It means that they would sell cellular tablets at the wifi price.

Half the stuff they already offer

Its funny because they already offer $0 down for well qualified buyers on tablets and the etf program already covered tablets. Both things i was looking into since i want a nexus 7 and i dont have the money to buy one out right.

So unless everyone is getting $0 down (like people like me who don't qualify) then i don't get the point of mentioning these two points.
