If you use T-Mobile and are in the market for a new phone, you may want to head down to your local RadioShack store. As of Friday the retailed is offering all of its T-Mobile post-paid phones for free with new 2-year contract.
RadioShack announced last month that it would no longer be selling T-Mobile handsets starting September 14th. The sale is likely to help the retailer clean out its inventory of handsets before that date hits.
RadioShack is giving up T-Mobile in order to start selling Verizon handsets. You will be able to pick up a Verizon phone at RadioShack starting on September 15th. At the time of the announcement, Jim Gooch, president and chief executive officer of RadioShack Corporation, commented on the new Verizon Wireless agreement, stating, “This is a substantial win for our customers, as this relationship with the nation’s largest wireless provider will further enhance our position as a leading multi-carrier wireless retailer. The addition of Verizon Wireless, in combination with our existing carrier partners, positions us to now offer the best assortment of carriers, rate plans, devices and accessories for every consumer need.”
Free is definitely a bargain for some of the T-Mobile handsets RadioShack has available. Are any of you thinking about picking one up?
