As we mentioned earlier in the day, the Galaxy S5 and new Gear devices arrived in 125 countries today. That includes the US, and also, T-Mobile. But along with the carrier simply launching the new phone and wearables -- they are once again going after switchers.
This offer isn't new for the release of the Galaxy S5, but T-Mobile is offering a reminder about how they are willing to pay another carrier ETF for those who switch. This is called Contract Freedom and was first introduced back in January. The key though, 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."
T-Mobile has the Samsung Galaxy S5 available from today, and priced at $0 down with 24 monthly payments of $27.50. Or for a total retail price of $660. The Galaxy S5 is available online and in retail stores. Along with the smartphone, the carrier also has the Gear 2, Gear 2 Neo and Gear Fit.
The Gear 2 is $299 and the Gear 2 Neo and Gear Fit are both $199. T-Mobile will have the Gear 2 Neo and Gear Fit will be available online and in retail stores. The Gear 2 will be available online.
