While not even close quite on par with T-Mobile's one-day-only all phones are free event marking last year's Father's Day, one year's worth of free data is still free data -- at least, kinda. Of course, we know you're all asking yourselves: so what's the rub? Well, to qualify you must sign up for a 2-year stint with a qualifying unlimited talk, text, and data plan, or be 18 months into your current contract and willing to extend it for two more years. This deal will essentially cover the price of the 200MB a month data plan -- for exactly half the length of your contract -- though, you can step up to any other data plan and apply that $10 a month credit to your bill. So is this a killer deal? Well, if you don't think Dad's gonna take advantage of that unlimited calling, then why not ponder a 500 minute talk, text, and data plan and save yourself a further $120 over this celebratory offering?
