  • T-Mobile is the first US carrier to sell OnePlus phones,
    starting with the latest $580 model of the OnePlus 6T that was
    announced on Monday.
  • The T-Mobile store in Times Square will sell the OnePlus 6T
    three days before its official release on November 1.
  • T-Mobile customers will also be able to trade in their old
    devices, including iPhones, to get a $300 credit toward the
    OnePlus 6T.
  • That means the OnePlus 6T’s price could be $280 for those
    with eligible devices to trade in, which is absurdly good value.
    You can see the eligible trade-in devices below.

T-Mobile is the first US carrier to sell a smartphone from
OnePlus, the OnePlus 6T.

Smartphones from OnePlus are popular around the world but perhaps
less so in the US, where availability at carrier stores is

Exclusive to the Times Square T-Mobile store in New York City,
T-Mobile will sell the OnePlus 6T beginning on Monday, October 29
at 5 p.m. — three days earlier than the phone’s official release
date of November 1. 

T-Mobile carries the $580 model of the OnePlus 6T, which comes
with 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage. But it won’t be carrying
the $550 base model that comes with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of
storage, nor the $630 higher-end model with 8GB of RAM and 256GB
of storage. For those models, T-Mobile customers will need to buy
the devices directly from OnePlus’ website.

Starting on Monday at the Times Square location, T-Mobile will
also let people trade in their old devices for $300 in credit —
the only stipulations are that the device needs to be listed
below, fully paid off, and in working condition. The offer will
be extended to all T-Mobile customers, not just the Times Square
location, starting on November 1.

Essentially, that reduces the price of the $580 OnePlus 6T to
$280. If you plan on going with a monthly installment plan, it’ll
be around $11 per month for 24 months. That helps put it into
perspective compared to smartphones that usually cost more than
$30 per month.

At $580, the OnePlus 6T is already an incredible value. At $280
with a valid trade-in, it’s possibly the best value for a
smartphone with the OnePlus 6T’s performance and features in the
history of smartphones. The only phone that comes close in terms
of pricing, performance, and features is the $600 LG G7 at

To be clear, the trade-in offer is for existing T-Mobile
customers, which is a bit of a missed opportunity for T-Mobile to
lure in those on other carriers.
