NEW YORK (AP) — T-Mobile says it will offer deals on new smartphones to customers with bad or no credit, regardless of how they pay, and charge no interest.

The nation’s No. 4 wireless carrier said Thursday that such deals were previously only available to people with good credit. Customers with no or poor credit could only use prepaid accounts — but now they can purchase new smartphones through installments the same as people with good credit.

The move follows T-Mobile’s announcement last month that it will allow customers to carry over unused cellular-data allotments. Under that plan, customers can stash away unused data allotments for up to a year.

It’s all part of a program T-Mobile calls “Un-carrier,” meant to describe offerings that go against the grain of longstanding industry practices.
