Seems like a good deal for the S7E. The phone is about a year old now, though, and T-Mobile is really bad with updates. Some initial searching around indicates that it is possible to flash the US unlocked firmware (G935U) onto this version (G935T) but I have no idea if it actually works. That being said I am tempted to pull the trigger on this.

Edit: Turns out that Samsung has seemingly abandoned the US unlocked version (G935U) so that's a no-go.

Do you have to signup for service with T-Mobile or can you go to a MVNO like Ting? How do you get it unlocked?

You may be able to use a third-party unlock service, but T-Mobile's policy is that the phone needs to be active on a T-Mobile line for 40 days, even if you pay in full (which is ridiculous, but there's nothing that can be done about it).

Thanks, that's what I figured.

I have the s7e and for what it's worth I just got the 7.0 update like 3 days ago or so.

Yeah, I read that, but honestly it isn't very encouraging. 7.0 was released in August of last year. That is SIX MONTHS ago. I was burned last time when I bought a T-Mobile Note 3 which was updated for less than 18 months; I don't even know why I'm considering this now that I think about it...

I ended up going with the V20 (purchased in-store), which is also included in this deal. There's a promotion (ends) today where you get a free LG projector if you buy it: https://www.lgrebates.com/LG-t-mobile-Valentines-Gift
And, another promotion that refunds you back 11.2% of the retail price if you're on T-Mobile One: https://explore.t-mobile.com/device-deals-and-offers

I have the S7 Edge, and don't recommend it. I tested it out in the store when it first came out, and thought it looked really nice. But after using it a while, I feel the sides are WAY too sensitive (mis-detects all the time) and I am not aware of any way to change the sensitivity. A case will probably help, but I don't like making the phone thicker. Be sure to test it thoroughly before you pull the trigger.

  You can turn the edges off if you dont like them. I  dont use the edges either but did not buy the regular because the edge is a 5.4 inch phone while the regular is 5.1 inch phone.

The phone is AMAZING. Outstanding screen, camera and super smooth. I have had not a single issue apart from the screen breaking when the phone fell. Even iphone lovers (relatives) wowed at the phone.

Highly recommend the phone if it does not have carrier crap on it. 

For "Speed" reference, I have the S7E on AT&T, and got the 7.0 update yesterday; Verizon reportedly doesn't have it yet. Bottom line, if you want instant updates, get a Pixel. Otherwise, you wait. That said, I've been a LOT happier with turnaround times and security updates on the S7 than any previous non-iDevice I've owned.

Do you have to open a new line with T-Mobile? Or can existing T-Mobile customers just order one phone per line?

Anyone know if this deal is available at Costco Mobile kiosk?

I also recommend the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge. I have always had an iPhone since they first came out. I will never go back! So much more you can do with the S7 Edge.

  I just got one for my existing line. I have only 1 line account  

Will Verizon match prices for phones?  I'm guessing no.

Can I use this phone with an existing T-Mobile prepaid plan?

  Can you recommend a good case and screen protector for S7 Edge?

the regular s7 is still 360

Can the LG be bought outright or should be using EIP to qualify for the rebate?

The detailed Terms and Conditions is not quite clear.

  I don't have one.  My phone had the back cover.  I dropped the phone sideway, the edge hit the concrete surface.  The glass screen cracked even with the back case cover.
Either buy a very well protect to cover the front, or do not drop the phone sideway.

Good price and beautiful device, very tempting! But knowing the new S8 is gonna come with a USB-C port and the a newly designed iPhone 8 is coming in a few months, I just can't commit to this S7. I am guessing we will see the price again later this year when they are trying to clear the inventory.

  for 11.2 % back, as i quoted before that. you have to meet 2 conditions. BOTH on Unlimited One Plan & on an Equipment Installment Plan (EIP).  

Anyone get AT&T to price match T-Mobile's price?

snj1013 said:   Anyone get AT&T to price match T-Mobile 's price?
  why should they pm to T-Mobile? they dont have to.

I might be doing something wrong, but the S7 Edge comes up at $480, not $360.

s7edge price of $360 was just for One day, yesterday. Today it's $480. 

I have the OtterBox commuter case and you can get a good screen protector from xtremeguard. You can google search and usually find 90% off coupon.

also, lg v20 is back to regular price today.

can we still root lg v20 (tmobile version) after j patch?

  I looked in the current coupon booklet and found the S7 has a $225 Costco gc with purchase via TMo payment plan. Not sure what the phone price is. I'd rather buy it from Costco kiosk as well. At least at the local Costco, their kiosk people are knowledgeable and helpful.
expires today

You know im beggining to think fatwallets front page is the biggest waste. I see so many deals like these that expire JUST as it hits the front page.

  It was ALL OVER the internet yesterday. Just bookmark androidpolice.com or something and check regularly. Pretty hard to miss this deal if you had internet access yesterday (I picked up the V20).

  Yep. I was going to pay the full $360 at once yesterday (V20) but there is really no reason to. I'm going to wait until the 11.2% gift card comes back and the projector arrives, then pay the EIP balance. It's the same $360 any way you pay it.

  I don't know about this deal, but on previous deals the low price was provided by a matching credit that offsets the EIP price. If you pay off the EIP, you no longer receive the credit, so you're basically losing the discounted price. This is T-Mobile's way of locking you in for the duration of the EIP. So, watch and see how this is billed before you decide to pay off the EIP.
