T-Mobile Drops Nexus 4 to $50 On-contract Until February 18

nexus 4 deal

This morning, T-Mobile dropped the price of the 16GB Nexus 4 to $50 on-contract after a $50 mail-in-rebate. The other day, we highlighted a deal that LetsTalk was having which brought the price down to about $76, but this is now much more appealing. Plus, it doesn’t come with any of the shady contract deals that you typically find with online resellers because it’s coming directly from T-Mo. $50, folks – you down?

The deal is online-only an runs from now until February 18. That gives you just over a week.

Oh, the Google Play store still has plenty in stock, so if you want to go the uber-smart approach and still avoid a contract, I’d recommend going there first.

    Too bad I’m on the value plan :-(

    The irony of purchasing this phone on contract is too much…

  • skinja99

    It is not the greatest phone in the world. But I would buy one if it was on VZW and had LTE.

  • Jim McClain

    but who would want to be on T-moblie

  • TheWenger

    So even if you get this for 50 bucks on T-Mo and sign a new contract. Use it for a few months, pay the ETF and get a new device and it’s still about the same price as buying it off contract.

  • Droidzilla

    This is what the discount price for all on-contract top end phones ought to be.

  • trbasil

    Suggested Retail $549.99, on a phone that sells for $400. And people wonder why phones are so expensive, and think the phone companies have it so bad by having to provide subsidies. If they wouldn’t artificially inflate the prices to begin with there wouldn’t be a problem.

    • trbasil

      Opps sorry $299,

      • JoshGroff

        350, T-mobile only offers the 16GB model.

        • trbasil

          Did not know that, but that is still a $200 markup that they are just slapping on there for no justified reason other than to be able to make it seem like they are giving you such a great deal if you sign a contract.

          • JoshGroff

            That and they don’t want people to buy from them off contract, since that’s the real money maker.

      T-Mobile isn’t offered the same price Google is through LG. That’s really what they’re paying as they’re selling them at cost. So you can
      t expect T-Mobile to break the bank to match Google. Not happening.

  • JoshGroff

    Not bad, but with how good their prepaid plans are, it’s not really worth signing a contract for.

  • Butters619

    Boy that would suck if you paid $200 for one.

  • Austin Warren

    But who wants a contract? Verizon already stole my soul for 2 years. Never again. Their $30 plan is perfect. Somebody tries to call me, I say “shut up and text me”.

    • JoshGroff

      Or you can set up Google voice, IIRC calls don’t use much data.

    • Butters619

      I wouldn’t do it, but I’m sure the mentality for the average consumer sees it as $300-$500 off the price of the phone when you sign a contract. And we still are a contract happy nation.

      • Austin Warren

        The only reason I see them discounting it heavily this way is because people are smart and going pre paid And paying the $400 they could be making on contract to google/LG.

        • Butters619

          Exactly. Nobody could justify $200 when they could buy the phone out of contract for $350. But for $50, I could definitely see T-Mo pulling people in. Clearly it is a test promotion and if it’s successful they’ll keep it or do it again shortly.

      Just get the $30 plan and only give out your google voice number.
