T-Mobile holiday deals: $50 off handsets — gift phones, pay with installments

How about some holiday discounts?  Yes, please. T-Mobile is offering some Black Friday weekend deals for new and existing customers. What are these magical deals you ask? Well, the Motorola CLIQ will set you back $149, the BlackBerry Bold 9700 will be priced at $149, and the Samsung Highlight will cost $49 — a $50 savings on all three handsets, two-year agreement required of course. The deals don’t stop there however; everyone, at least we hope, has someone in their lives who they care about dearly, someone they adore so much, that they would be willing to pay full retail price for cell phone to give that person as a gift for the holidays. Brings a tear to your eye doesn’t it? Well, if the thought of that special person doesn’t make you all misty then the idea of spending $300+ for a cell phone might just be enough to do it — and T-Mobile thinks it has a solution. Those of you who are on a T-Mobile Even More plan will now be allowed to purchase any phone at full retail price, spread the payments out into monthly installments, and gift that phone to a friend. Not a bad idea. Now, the number of people who can take advantage of this deal is obviously limited, as you will have to: have T-Mobile service, be on an Even More plan, have a friend you like enough to drop $300+ on, and have that lucky person also be on (or ready to switch to) T-Mobile. Nice job T-Mo, we appreciate the sentiment. ‘Tis the holiday season after all, and it is that thought that counts. No?

BlackBerry 9700 and Motorola CLIQ release dates revealed?

If you’re a T-Mobile subscriber itching to get your hands on the latest and greatest, it looks like November 11th might be a date you want to jot down in your planner. Why, you ask? According to one of our ninjas, a T-Mobile higher-up has pegged November 11th as the tentative launch date for both the BlackBerry 9700 and the Motorola CLIQ. Wow. Have two more highly anticipated handsets ever launched with the same carrier on the same day? Now, to be crystal clear, this date is relayed to us as tentative so nothing is set in stone just yet. Where the CLIQ is concerned, the 11th definitely lines up well with the late-October pre-sale and the 9700 has been rumored to launch in November as well. On a related note, we’re hearing AT&T will launch the 9700 around the same time as T-mo, while Rogers will once again beat the US to the punch with a mid to late-October launch.
