Is it Possible to Get Both – a Metro PCS Free Phone And Tablet?
Metro is one of the most generous wireless companies in the US. It offers so many benefits and discounts. The company offers promotional deals, as well as ACP discounts for households that need financial support from the government.
Receiving both a free phone and tablet from a single provider may sound like a stretch but Metro delivers! So, the answer is yes – it is possible to receive both a Metro PCS free phone and tablet.
How Can I Get a Metro PCS Free Phone And Tablet?
When it comes to receiving a Metro PCS free phone, you have not one, but two options:
- You can either receive a free phone (along with a $30 credit on a monthly plan) through Metro’s ACP program.
- Or you can receive a free phone through a promotional deal.
On the other hand, to receive a Metro PCS free tablet, you have one option:
- Receive the free tablet through a promotional deal.
ACP program is stable and the company will likely offer ACP benefits for the unforeseeable future. However, when it comes to promotional deals, you should know that while the company always offers certain discounted or even free devices, the exact terms of the deal and the available devices change frequently. As such, you would do well to take advantage of a suitable offer as soon as it appears.

The Process of Receiving a Metro PCS Free Phone And Tablet
Both receiving a Metro PCS free phone and/or tablet through ACP and a promotional deal will require you to follow a strict process.
It’s not as simple as to just walk into a store, grab the device you like, and walk out the door. Instead, you must qualify and apply for both the ACP program and the promotional deal. But don’t worry, as both processes will be thoroughly explored in the next two sections.
How to Receive a Metro PCS Free Phone Through ACP – Full Guide
If you apply for Metro’s ACP program, you’ll get both a free phone and a discount on a monthly plan.
However, to successfully enroll and receive these benefits, you will first have to make sure you qualify, convince the company that you qualify (prove your eligibility), apply for the program, and get approved. Let’s explain this process in more detail:
- First, you should check whether or not you are eligible for the ACP program. A household qualifies if the applicant is at least 18 years old or emancipated, a resident of one of the states where Metro operates, and if one of the household members meets any of the following conditions:
- Has an income at or below 200% of the federal poverty guidelines.
- Participates in specific assistance programs like SNAP, Medicaid, Federal Public Housing Assistance, SSI, WIC, or Lifeline.

- Received a Federal Pell Grant in the current award year.

- Visit affordableconnectivity.gov/?icid=MTPR_MTW_P_MTAFRDCONP_CQV7M63M5NRMQ3PIV33870 and apply for the program through the National Verifier.
- If approved, save your application ID.
- If you’re not currently a Metro by T-Mobile customer, you can become one by visiting a store or activating your service online using certain phones or an e-sim.
- After becoming a customer, access your My Account on metrobyt-mobile.com, where you can complete the Metro ACP application. Alternatively, you can visit a nearby Metro by T-Mobile store for assistance in filling out the application.
- Complete the application form by providing all the required information, documentation copies, and your National Verifier application ID.
- Once you’ve submitted the application, Metro will review it and send you a text message to let you know if you’re enrolled. The discount will become active in the next billing cycle.

How to Receive a Metro PCS Free Phone/Tablet Through a Promo Deal – Full Guide
All of the current discounted or free Metro by T-Mobile tablet models are only available in-store. As the deals are only available in physical stores, you can receive one by following these steps:
- Locate a nearby store using the store locator at metrobyt-mobile.com/storelocator.
- Visit the store with your identification and some money just in case.
- Request to speak with a representative.

- In some cases, you may need to purchase the tablet at full price and receive a credit over several months. Be prepared to cover any applicable taxes.
- Once the process is complete, you will leave the store with your new tablet and a SIM card. You can either activate the tablet yourself or ask the representative to assist you with the activation.
When it comes to free phone deals, you can choose between in-store or online offers.
You can see the list of currently available free phones at metrobyt-mobile.com/deals.
If you decide to get a phone model that is available in-store only, you can follow the same process as is required to purchase a tablet. This means that you’ll have to visit a Metro store with your ID and some money. Request to speak with a representative and express your interest in a specific phone promotion available on their website. The representative will then guide you through the process.
On the other hand, if you decide to get a phone that is available online, you should follow these instructions:

You will be requested to provide your personal information and shipping address, choose the shipping method, provide payment details (even if the phone you have selected is completely free of charge, you will have to pay for the plan), and finish additional steps to place the order.
- Expect to receive free 2-day shipping and no activation fees. Your device and SIM card should be delivered in 2 to 3 business days via mail. You can then activate the device and start enjoying its benefits.
