T-Mobile iPad Air Release Brings Free Data for Life, $0 Down Option

By  |  3 Comments

The T-Mobile iPad Air release is coming on November 1st complete with an offer for free data for life to T-Mobile iPad Air customers, that is available even if this is your first T-Mobile device. T-Mobile will also offer the $0 down offer on the iPad mini 2 release date, with monthly payments. The iPad mini is available for $0 down with additional payments as well.

In addition to the free data offer, buyers can purchase the iPad Air for $0 down from T-Mobile. This discount is for a limited time, after which consumers will need to pay up front for the iPad Air.

With this new T-Mobile iPad Air promotion the 16GB iPad Air is $0 down, the 32GB model is $99 down and the 64GB model is $199 down. Apple sells a 128GB iPad Air, but T-Mobile doesn’t mention it in this offer.

The iPad Air isn’t free though. Users don’t need to sign a T-Mobile service contract, but they will need to make 24 monthly payments of $26.25, which equals out to $630 for the base iPad Air model. This is the same price as buying it outright from Apple or on another carrier. The T-Mobile iPad 2 monthly payments are $22.08 and the T-Mobile iPad mini monthly payments are $17.91 for 24 months.

The T-Mobile iPad Air release arrives with a $0 down offer and free data for life.

The T-Mobile iPad Air deal starts on November 1st and the free data includes 200MB of data per month on LTE. While this is not much data, it could be a nice deal for some users who don’t travel often and will mostly use the iPad Air on WiFi.

“When you buy a product as amazing as iPad, you should be able to connect when and where you want, simply and affordably,” said John Legere, president and CEO of T-Mobile. “By offering free data for life with incredible upfront pricing, T-Mobile is un-leashing customers to fully enjoy iPad as it was meant to be enjoyed – mobile and connected.”

Users can upgrade to 500MB of LTE data for $10 if they are on a T-Mobile voice plan and add 2GB more for another $10. T-Mobile also sells daily and weekly passes for the iPad Air, iPad mini 2 and iPad mini. The daily passes offer 500MB of data for $5 or a week of unlimited data with 1GB of it at LTE speeds for $10. Adding to the options, the T-Mobile Simple Choice iPad Plan offers unlimited data in more than 100 Simple Global countries at no additional charge, for users on a qualifying plan.

The T-Mobile iPad mini and iPad Air releases are set for November 1st and the iPad mini 2 with Retina Display release date is in November according to Apple and T-Mobile.

    vs AT&T’s $15/250mb this is an awesome deal…. and with 0% interest it’s a no brainer…

    I wasn’t going to upgrade from my iPad 4 but this is just too tempting to pass up…

    This deal looked to good to be true, and is! Went to my local Tmobile store to buy it, and discovered If you are not a Tmobile customer, you have to pay full price for the ipad to get the free 200mb/mth. If you finance it, than they charge you $10/mth for the 200mb. So much for zero down and free data life as they advertised. The only ones who can finance (interest free) and get the free 200mb are existing Tmobile customers only. For a carrier that advertises simple and not pulling the wool over your eyes, seems very deceptive to me. Was planning on switching to Tmobile when my contract is up, now I am going to think twice.
