T-Mobile will reimburse you up to $5,000 if you switch from AT&T or Verizon

The Uncarrier is becoming more aggressive in luring customers away from competitors.

What you need to know

  • T-Mobile will pay off what you owe on your smartphone if you switch from a rival carrier.
  • The Uncarrier will cover up to $1,000 per line through a virtual prepaid MasterCard card.
  • T-Mobile also boasts better 5G coverage as part of the promotion.

T-Mobile has another sweet offer if you're considering replacing your current carrier. The Uncarrier will pay off your smartphone up to $1,000 per line if you make the switch from its rivals, including Verizon and AT&T.

The new promotion is part of its Keep & Switch program, and you can start using it today by bringing in your current phone along with a photo of your most recent bill. You will then receive up to $1,000 per line via virtual prepaid MasterCard to settle your previous carrier's balance. If you want to bring your entire family over to Magenta, the promotion covers "up to $1,000 for each of up to five devices," as well as improved 5G coverage.

Making the switch is a simple process. First, you must confirm that your phone is eligible, and then you must show your current device payment plan balance. Your rebates will be emailed to you within 15 days.

However, the offer is only valid for a limited number of devices. Many of the best Android phones are eligible, including the Samsung Galaxy S20 series all the way down to the Galaxy S8 lineup and the Galaxy Note 10 series all the way down to the Galaxy Note 8 devices. The promotion is also compatible with the Google Pixel 2 series up to the Pixel 4 phones, as well as Apple's iPhones. A complete list of eligible handsets can be found here.

T-Mobile will accept qualifying devices from carriers other than AT&T and Verizon, including Spectrum, Xfinity, US Cellular, Claro, and Boost. If you want to change carriers but don't want to pay off your current phone, Magenta's offer isn't a bad option.

Review: The Teracube 2e is a more sustainable phone that you can afford

It just got easier to be green. If you know me or read my work here at AC, you know that I feel strongly about a few things when it comes to smartphones and consumer tech, and those things are not necessarily what some of my colleagues or others in the tech-sphere care about. You can have your 10x optical zoom cameras, folding phones, and 50W wireless charging devices all day, but I'm more interested in affordable to mid-range devices that last longer than you'd expect and which are at least trying to do environmental and social good. Sounds great, but it seems that it's harder to find this combination of features in a phone than the ultra-premium specced-out devices we typically talk about here on this website. That's why I was excited when I had the chance to write this Teracube 2e review. Teracube is a relatively new smartphone OEM based out of Redmond, WA, and founder Sharad Mittal's stated goal is to change the "disposable nature of the consumer ele

Google's new Guest Mode is like incognito mode for Google Assistant

Your interactions with Google Assistant will not be saved when Guest Mode is turned on. What you need to know Google Assistant is getting a new Guest Mode for privacy-conscious users. When it's turned on, the virtual assistant will not save any of its interactions with you. Turning it on and off is as simple as a single voice command. Google this week announced a new Guest Mode for its virtual assistant that's designed with privacy-conscious folks in mind. A simple "Hey Google, turn on Guest Mode" will ensure that none of your interactions with Google Assistant are collected by the company and nor will they be used to 'personalize your experience' — often an indirect way of referring to targeted ads. When it's on, the Assistant will play a special chime to let you know. Smart displays with Assistant will also show a guest icon on the screen. And you can always check for yourself by saying, "Hey Google, is Guest Mode on?" Even with G

Spotify Q1 beats on sales of $2B with monthly active users up 31% to 286M

The coronavirus may be decimating some corners of the economy, but the impact on the digital music, as evidenced by the world’s biggest music streaming company, appears to be minimal. Today Spotify reported its earnings for Q1 with revenues of €1.848 billion ($2 billion at today’s rates) and an inching into a positive net income of $1 million. Monthly active users (not total subscribers) now stand at 286 million, with paid (premium) users at 130 million and ad-supported monthly active users at 163 million. Ad-supported users are growing at a slightly higher rate at the moment, at 32% versus 31%, Spotify said. Spotify beat  analysts’ forecasts on both sales — they had on average been expecting revenues of $1.86 billion — and EPS, which had been forecast to be -$0.49 but came in at -$0.20 on a diluted basis and $0.00 undiluted. The numbers underscore the positive signals we’ve had from the wider industry. More generally, we have seen a huge boost in streaming media services — includ

Adobe is giving students and teachers free access to Creative Cloud

Your university's IT admin will need to make an application for access. What you need to know Adobe is temporarily making Creative Cloud free for teachers and students. The offer is aimed at enabling them to continue being productive as they work and study from home. Students cannot individually avail the promo, however, as the application for access needs to be made by a university's IT admin. As universities around the world shut their campuses and organizations ask their employees to work from home, many tech companies are making their products available to educational institutes free for use. Google and Microsoft have both made their large-scale communication and videoconferencing tools free for everyone, and now Adobe is temporarily giving free Creative Cloud access to students and teachers. The subscription, which usually costs $79.49 per month, will give affected students and teachers access to the entire range of Adobe's applications, such as Photoshop
