T-Mobile is really feeling the love this year, and is deciding to share it via a huge sale. On February 11 they will be selling all of their handsets for free on contract, after rebate. There is a catch however, as you must first purchase the device and then apply for a mail-in rebate card. Not the worst in the world, but it should be noted. The offer is for one day only, and works on all devices, including tablets.
Some ideas for Android lovers include the HTC Amaze 4G, or the Samsung Galaxy S II. On the tablet front, there is also the T-Mobile Springboard running Honeycomb. Just a few ideas, and there is still a full selection of phones with lesser specs if you’re interested. Hit the T-Mobile source link to get the full rundown, and be sure to head back here and let us know what phone you’ll be picking up for that special someone during this Valentine’s Day sale.
