Switch to Metro by T-Mobile with unlimited 5G data for $25 per month

What you need to know

  • Customers that switch to Metro by T-Mobile and trade in any working phone get unlimited service for $25 per month for two years.
  • Switching customers can also get a free 5G phone.
  • Metro by T-Mobile is targeting Cricket and Boost Mobile customers pointing out that they can get half-off an unlimited plan with 5G.

T-Mobile is on the offensive and its most recent target is prepaid customers, specifically those on Cricket Wireless and Boost Mobile. T-Mobile announced that starting July 29, customers that switched to Metro by T-Mobile can get an unlimited plan for $25 per month with 5G support. Customers can also get a free 5G phone when they switch. This offer is only open to customers that bring their number to Metro and trade in any working phone.

This is down from the $40 per month plan currently offered to switching customers. The $25 per month price will be available for two years before reverting to full price. Once your term is up, you own the phone so you can take it with you to another plan or carrier at that time if you want.

To take advantage of this deal, head in to a Metro by T-Mobile store starting July 29 with your old phone to trade in. Metro is accepting any phone as long as it works so if you're still holding on to an old flip phone, it's a good time to upgrade.

Metro points out that this price is half off the price of a competing plan from Cricket or Boost Mobile. Cricket only offers 5G support on its most expensive unlimited plan and Boost Mobile recently announced that it would be using AT&T for its coverage in the future after T-Mobile announced plans to retire the aging CDMA Sprint network.

In a press release, Jon Freier, Executive Vice President, T-Mobile Consumer Group said:

Our smartphones are our lifelines, and yet a generation of prepaid customers are being left behind in the 5G era by providers and plans that keep them locked on old technology and slow, over-priced connections. If Cricket or Boost won't upgrade their customers to 5G, Metro by T-Mobile sure will. At Metro by T-Mobile, we put customers first. The biggest 5G network at half the price of Boost or Cricket, unlimited data with 5G included AND a free 5G phone? Talk about an easy upgrade.

This isn't the first time T-Mobile has offered a free 5G phone and even Metro currently has a free 5G phone offer with the 5G version of the Samsung Galaxy A32 available for free with a new line activation.

T-Mobile is the current leader in 5G coverage and its network hosts several of the best cell phone plans you can get including other prepaid carriers like Mint Mobile.

Technics EAH-AZ60 review: Contending in stunning fashion

Technics serves notice that everyone should notice these earbuds. Technics ventured into the wireless earbuds category to go after the big dogs in the race. Think of the likes of Sony, Bose, and Sennheiser on sound quality, as well as the best you can find on design and functionality. It's a combination that comes at a price, but if done right, it gets easier to justify spending more. That's the case Technics makes with its EAH-Z60 earbuds. Its newest pair aims to take what the company has done in the past and make it even better. The results are easy to like and are significant enough to consider them as serious contenders.

PS5 restocks: Here are the latest PS5 stock updates & how to find one

PS5 stock is selling out fast, so be sure to have your credit card ready. Looking to buy a PS5 ? Well, so are millions of other people. It doesn't help that stock levels remain really tight, even nearly a year after its launch. Every time a retailer puts stock up for sale, it sells out super quickly. The longest we here at Android Central have seen PS5s stay in stock is between 15 to 20 minutes (often just a few minutes, though). That's also at random times, so finding a PS5 is a truly challenging task. Sony warned it will be hard to find stock throughout the year and well into 2022, but retailers promise more are coming and that Sony has secured additional semiconductor chips to make them. In our PS5 review, we called the system a technical marvel with a groundbreaking controller. And after spending a few months with the PS5, it's nearly impossible to go back to the PS4. Everything about the PS5 is better , from the games to the DualSense haptic feedback . So you'
