According to Boy Genius Report, T-Mobile is planning on making every single phone in its inventory free on June 19. BGR's sources cite an unearthed TV commercial script as proof.
But what's the catch? (After all, the company won't just be hurling armloads of cell phones out their store windows.) In order to qualify for free phones, customers just need to sign up for a family plan. Yup. That's it! Just in time for Father's Day on June 20th.
