On Friday, February 11 and Saturday, February 12, all T-Mobile phones, even the fastest 4G smartphones running on America's largest 4G network, will be offered for free at T-Mobile retail stores with qualifying plan on two-year contract."</em></p><p><img src="http://images.thoughtsmedia.com/resizer/thumbs/size/600/wpt/auto/1297212512.usr14226.jpg" style="border: 0px solid;" /></p><p>Oh me, oh my! It's hard to see a downside to this deal, since you'd have to sign a contract to get a carrier based phone anyway. If this comes off, the only thing I think might turn people off is network congestion from the potntial flood of new users, much like what happened to AT&T when the iPhone first came out. What with Verizon getting the iPhone 4, this is a great riposte from T-Mobile - though I can't imagine how the shareholders might feel about such a hefty potential layout. But that hardly matters to consumers, right? Let us know if you're planning on grabbing one - and how big or small the crowds are.</p>
