Just in time for Father's Day, T-Mobile has announced a one-of-a-kind deal to take place on Saturday: for only one day, every single phone in every T-Mobile store across the nation will be free. The catch? A family plan is required; either sign up for a new one, or add another line to an existing plan. Individual plan subscribers are out of luck.

And when T-Mobile says every phone, it means every phone. This even includes recent smartphones like the myTouch 3G Slide, the HTC HD2, and the Garminfone. Of course, the phones are only available while supplies last, so you might want to queue up before the 8 a.m. start time to get your preferred device. As with all family plans, you're limited to five lines per plan.

Be careful when replacing parts. Poorly made cables can fry a laptop, and iPhones will stop working if the Touch ID button is repaired outside of Apple. It's a lesson some are learning the hard way.
