The Nexus 5 – Google’s 2013 flagship and our number 2 phone of last year – is available now at T-Mobile for $ 0 down or $ 396 full retail. For those keeping track, that’s not exactly cheaper than what Google is selling the same 16GB device for ($ 349), but it’s not a bad price. The beauty of the deal comes if you can’t afford the up-front full payment and go with the monthly payment plan of just $ 16.50 per month for 24 months.
While we aren’t always excited about monthly payment plans, that’s about as cheap as it gets for one of the best Android phones on Earth (our review). And with T-Mobile now paying your ETF fees for transferring from another carrier, now would be the time to switch if T-Mobile has been on your radar.
Remember, T-Mo will pay up to $ 650 per line if you switch over to their network. That’s up to $ 300 for trading in your old device, plus up to $ 350 in Early Termination Fees (ETF).
I’d imagine they may even toss in free shipping, or at least cheaper shipping than Google.
