After Apple’s presentation of the iPhone 13, T-Mobile announces its Forever Upgrade program. You will get an $800 trade-in credit for your old iPhone each time you trade it in for a new iPhone 13. It sounds like a good deal, but there are a few limitations to consider.
For starters, the trade-in program from T-Mobile allows you to exchange up to an iPhone 13 and get up to $1000 off a new iPhone. To get the entire promotional amount, you should acquire an iPhone 12 Pro, 12 Pro Max, 11 Pro, or 11 Pro Max. If you have an iPhone 12, 12 mini, 11, X, XR, XS, XS Max, Samsung Galaxy S20, S20+, S20 Ultra, S20 FE, S21, S21+, Note10, Note20, Note20 Ultra, Z Flip 5G, Z Fold2, Moto razer 5G, or OnePlus 8 5G, you can earn $800 in savings on a new phone. You can get all the listed devices by examining the information below.

In order to receive the promotional offer, you must be on a qualifying Magenta Max or T-Mobile One Plus plan and trade in your old phone.

And now, we must turn our attention to the “Forever” Upgrade program. While T-Mobile emphasizes “Forever” numerous times in the message, the program terms mention “The program may terminate and change at any time.” So it is not really “forever” after all.
You must also be on a Magenta MAX plan, which is more expensive than T-previous Mobile’s ONE plans. In a merger with Sprint, T-Mobile stated it would not raise rates for subscribers, but they are not able to keep that promise when they upgrade to the Magenta MAX plan. While T-earlier Mobile’s ONE plans did provide a few extra features and fewer limits, the Magenta MAX offers both even more options and fewer constraints.
The iPhone credit you will receive will depend on whatever model you select. The $800 credit limit is in place regardless of the iPhone 13 Pro’s $999 retail price. If you spend $699 on an iPhone 13 mini, the $699 credit will only apply to your upgrade in the future.
While we appreciate T-trade-in Mobile’s deals and the fact that individuals have the option to save when upgrading their iPhones, the conditions of the program suggest that this is a customer-loyalty campaign. While the Forever Upgrade program is listed in the terms, we wish that T-Mobile would not alter the program without informing customers first.
If you’re planning to trade in your phone for a new one, make sure to investigate and ask your carrier representative about the trade-in promotion or upgrade program before signing anything. It is essential to understand what you are entering into and whether the promotion will be of benefit to you.
