It’s iPhone season, and T-Mobile has a new promotion to snag customers.

The all new “Forever Upgrade” program from T-Mobile gives you guaranteed trade-in value on an iPhone 12 or 13 series device after 2 years, as long as you have one of T-Mobile’s premium plans. Simply buy a 5G iPhone from T-Mobile now, and in two years get up to $800 in credit towards a new iPhone at that time.

How to Upgrade Forever

Customers that get the 30-month EIP will have the last 6 months of payments waived when they trade-in their iPhone 12 or 13 series device after the 2 years is up.

As for phone deals themselves, the iPhone 13 series phones are up to $1000 off with eligible trade-in, but once again requiring a T-Mobile premium plan. This includes Magenta Plus/MAX and ONE Plus. It also includes Sprint MAX, Plus, and Premium UNLIMITED plans.

Non-premium plans, like standard Magenta etc, get up to $500 off instead.

Below is a list of eligible trade-in devices and their values. The first price is for premium plans, and the second price is for non-premium plans.
