    If you are a Verizon customer and happen to live in one of the many areas of the country in which T-Mobile has expanded and improved their network coverage, then you might be tempted by their latest offer. That is assuming you are also a fan of Hulu.

    The latest "Un-Carrier" promo from Big Pink is a bit odd. Verizon customers who switch to T-Mobile will get a year of free Premium Hulu. The offer is for a limited time only (starting December 11th and ending on December 17th), and is only redeemable with a gift code. This promo ties into T-Mobile's earlier Un-Carrier initiative that offers unlimited streaming for select services, including Hulu.

    T-Mobile is also including (for the same limited time) a half-price sale on all (in-store financed) accessories like smartwatches, Bluetooth speakers, headphones and wearables. Finally, T-Mobile is also pairing this with their other option that allows Verizon customers to sign up for T-Mobile’s Carrier Freedom. This allows for a credit of up to $650 per line or more to cover Verizon’s early termination fees (ETFs), or any balance you may owe on your Verizon phone. This only works when you switch your number to T-Mobile with a trade-in.

    For more details, hit up the source link below. What do you folks think of T-Mobile's bizarre new offer?

    T-mo will give me $96 bucks to move over. I'm not seeing any reason to jump ship.

    I'm just happy to see that someone said "big pink". I'll leave you to it. Lol

    Anyway, I'm going with Fi pretty soon. That's one reason I got the 6P

    Could I go and grab a note 5, finance it through Verizon and then jump to t-mo? Would they pay for my hardware "fee"??

    I wish VZW would step up and offer something to their customers.. More data for free or streaming or something.... But at this point we are lucky just to get updates in a timely manner

    Why couldn't I trade in my Note 4 and take the 5 with me?

    Because while your Note 4 is paid off, your 5 is brand new and not paid off and you still owe the retail price of the device (at least if you're on the Verizon Edge program).

    EDIT

    Oh, hmm, maybe not actually, I didn't read the terms carefully. You might be able to keep the 5 then if they'll pay up to $650?

    Don't you also have to get a phone with payments through them also?

    Which can be a cheap $60 prepaid phone for 3 bucks a month.

    Verizon is offering 24 bonus gigs for life if you activate or upgrade on their XL size or larger data plans.

    Do you have an article on this? I was just looking at going to the XXL plan right now. But is this a month or year for the 24GB?
