On November 21, T-Mobile is expressing appreciation to its current customers by offering early access to Black Friday deals. The carrier is taking $100 off the Samsung Galaxy S 5 and Galaxy Note 3. Even better, T-Mobile customers can pickup an Alcatel ONETOUCH POP 7 tablet for absolutely nothing but the sales tax. There are no monthly payments and not even a down payment. The following day, November 22, T-Mobile will open up the tablet offer to new customers as well.
T-Mobile notes that canceling your wireless service will cause the device balance to be due.
In preparation for Wednesday, Nov. 19′s launch of the Nexus 6, it appears that T-Mobile has received a shipment of the new Google phablet. It’s said that select T-Mobile stores have display models out already and a number of XDA users have stated that they’ve been lucky enough to have T-Mobile sell them the 5.96-inch monster a few days early.
That being said, we’re still two days away from T-Mobile’s actual launch of the device. Of course you can test your luck and maybe snag on early. If not, you’ll maybe at least be able to touch and play with one in the mean time.

Starting today, residents in the United States can pick up the curved variant of Samsung’s flagship phablet of 2014, the Galaxy Note Edge, from three out of five of the largest carriers.
Those who have been wanting to get their hands on the LG G Watch R will be happy to know that T-Mobile is planning to carry the new Android Wear device at select T-Mobile stores. Starting on Wednesday, Nov. 19, the G Watch R will go for $299.99. The watch sports a 1.2GHz Snapdragon 400 under a 1.3-inch P-OLED display with 4GB of internal storage and 512MB of RAM. That said, T-Mobile users are only a few days away from being able to purchase the G Watch R. We have the presser for you after the break.
T-Mobile announced via Twitter that the Nexus 6 launch will be pushed to November 19, one week later. They didn’t give a reason other than they want to give customers the best experience possible. That could mean a lot of things, but we suspect it has to do more with supply than anything else.
AT&T pre-orders are already live and Sprint will have the device this Friday. Still no word on when Verizon will carry the device, but don’t expect it to be too soon since they are in DROID mode at the moment.
We knew Google’s latest flagship was going to see a release on all major US carriers, but none of the carriers, nor Google or Motorola, said much about pricing. Since the device retails for $649 with no type of service contract, many people assumed it pick up a $199 price tag with a 2-year agreement. Turns out that was a pretty smart guess, as Google confirmed the price point yesterday.
If you’re interested in purchasing a Nexus 6 with a carrier like Verizon, AT&T, or Sprint, you can sign a 2-year contract to get the massive Nexus for about $200. Of course, all major carriers are now offering some type of device installment plan, so you can also opt for a monthly payment for the device, too. Decisions, decisions.
The pace at which T-Mobile has been moving is incredible. Constantly, the carrier is hitting milestones way ahead of schedule. The latest milestone is the reach of its 4G LTE network. T-Mobile says that it reaches 250 million people in the United States. This is “months ahead of schedule.” And by June of next year, T-Mobile plans to cover 280 million people with 300 million targeted for the end of 2015.
The next step for T-Mobile, though, does not just include increasing the reach of its 4G LTE network. It is continue to work on Voice Over LTE (VoLTE), WiFi Calling, and Wideband LTE. In a company blog post, chief technology officer Neville Ray said this is all part of T-Mobile’s “complete committment to advancing our Data Strong network.”
