I missed out on the last promotion because the offer was only for new customers and this one is too. It's one of the deals that where there is a $50 mail-in rebate card. So it's "free", according to the website, but...ya know. Anyway, I am contemplating calling the loyalty department to see if I can get in on this or not like had been suggested before.
Debating between this deal or just dumping TMo for the 920 over at AT&T. (This, of course, will all have to be negotiated with the wife.)

Steve, it depends on what your needs are and your bargaining power with the wife...
I rock a L810. My needs were expandable memory and removable battery. So far the phone hasn't disappointed. I've also got a Galaxy Nexus with a SuperAMOLED HD screen and the L810'S is for me a slight drop off, but still very good. Obviously the 920 has the killer cam and the extra wow factor. But the 810 is an LTE phone that T-MO will switch on with a software update. Plus the 810's cam is actually better than people give it credit for.
Phone to phone, the 920 is better...but my T-Mo plan is pretty nice...i couldn't find that on AT&T, so I stayed.

Essentially, you pay a super cheap plan but have to bring your own phone. Until then, T-Mo is trying to move customers over to value plan pricing if they're classic plan customers.
You could also buy an 810 off of craigslist or ebay for about 300 and use that instead. Options, options!

I'm just going to punt for a bit. I just want to get rid of these ancient Android devices, but I can wait.

Have you played with the 810 in the store though? I do love mine.

The G2, for example, had Flash loaded by default. There was no way to remove it unless you flash the whole thing. The last update for Flash came in June of last year. Lameness.
I played with WP8 on both the 8x and the 810 a lot in the stores and really liked them both. The flexibility of the 810 won me over, however. Not to mention it being a Nokia device. I got time, but I am also eager to replace these devices with something else.

Just worked out pretty good deal with Tmo for the 810 and the One S (for my wife). Stoked. I didn't get them for free, but I got the prices knocked down from what they were asking a bit and they are going to pay a month's bill. So it worked out cool. I think the key is that you have to get the right rep to make something happen.
Anyways the deal foe the 810 for free to new customers ends tomorrow.

Honestly I didn't go with this because they make you get a classic plan (expensive, $70-80/mo minimum if you plan on including more than just the most basic 200mb data connection) in order to get the deal price. It would have been worth it for the value plan ($50/mo for 500min, unlimited text and data with 2gb at 4g).
Instead what I ended up doing is just buying the phone itself brand new from ebay for $285 (free shipping), then order a sim card online for it to get the $30/mo plan with unlimited text+data (5gb up to 4g speed), and 100mins. Plus I'm not on a contract.
Doing what I did total cost: $1005 (over 2 years)
Doing this deal (free phone on the cheapest classic contract data plan): $1680 (over two years, stuck with contract)
