T-Mobile explains how to get out of your contract and upgrade to Samsung Galaxy S 5

T-Mobile estimates that 25 million Americans are looking to upgrade their phones but are locked into carrier contracts. That’s why T-Mobile is opening its doors early today to offer Samsung’s Galaxy S 5, as only “the Un-carrier can – for zero down.” This includes the 24 monthly payments, with zero annual service contract, zero overages and zero hidden devices costs, plus “the world as your network at zero extra cost,” according to the company’s latest release.
 
T-Mobile “will pay every penny of you and your family’s early termination fees (ETFs) when you make the switch, trade in your devices and upgrade.” The company reported the results of a new T-Mobile/Kelton Group survey of Galaxy S 4 owners that reveals huge pent up demand for Samsung’s latest superphone. The research found a remarkable 89 percent of the millions of Galaxy S 4 owners plan to step up to the Galaxy S 5 – with over 40 percent planning to make the move within the next three months. The survey also reveals 80 percent of Samsung Galaxy S 4 consumers are open to switching carriers, and for nearly 2 out of 3 of them, the only thing holding them back is the fear of early termination fees and other charges.

It’s jet fuel on an already successful fire.”
 
By switching to T-Mobile, customers can enjoy “total contract freedom, with T-Mobile paying the early termination fees for that entire family (on up to five lines) with device trade in to make the Simple Choice and come over to a better wireless experience,” the company explains in a statement sent out this morning.
 
“The Un-carrier’s Contract Freedom is the only solution to the amazing pent up demand we’re seeing for Samsung’s Galaxy S 5,” Sievert added. “Upwards of 25 million Americans will have to wait months or years if they stay stuck in contracts with the old carriers. But not if they switch to T-Mobile. Starting today at T-Mobile, they can get the Galaxy S 5 un-leashed on America’s fastest nationwide 4G LTE network – and we’ll pay every penny of their contract termination fees.”
 
T-Mobile will also offer Samsung’s new Gear 2 Neo and Gear Fit in select T-Mobile retail stores and online, the Gear 2 will be made available beginning April 11th. The Gear 2 Neo and Gear Fit will cost $199 and the Gear 2 will cost $299.
