I am currently with T-mobile right now and am currently on a plan with them. I am planning to upgrade phones and sim card as well as my current phone and sim card is quite old.
WIth the activate now option for the discounted price, what does that entail?
Do I have to pay anything extra? Am I signing up for a new line? Is there any catches?
What exactly are the steps to take for this offer if say I wanted to pay full price? Would I just go to my best buy store and then ask to purchase with the activate now? What happens after that?
Are there any other information I should know about the "with activation today" option?
I am confused with this so if possible the more detailed the better. Thank you!

You would need to call T Mobile first and let them know that you plan to upgrade phones. Also make sure your account is in the clear and free from missed payments and device payments you may have.
Purchasing the device without activate today are for people who want to bring the device home and set it up themselves. At least this is how I understand it.
Are you on a contract?
Can we have a link to the phone?

Yes that is it. Best Buy may be able to help you set it up and transfer the service to the new phone. You should go to the store and bring a copy of your bill plus your photo ID and have your account number and pin handy. Visit the mobile department to make sure that you can do that otherwise if you can't get the cheaper price you can pay the full price without discount and set it up yourself at home.

Good afternoon, nevergonnabuy,
Welcome to our community forums. I know that navigating all the different options for cell phone upgrades can be a bit confusing, I appreciate you reaching out to us with these questions. I know if I were in your shoes I would want to make sure I knew exactly how this promotion worked before making a decision. I'd be happy to help answer your questions.
Generally, when a promotion for a cell phone requires an activation the same day as your purchase, this would need to be completed during your visit. Once this purchase was complete, the phone would then be activated on that carrier's network and associated with a new or existing account.
Because cell phone plans vary, there may be additional fees or charges when activating. I would recommend visiting your local Best Buy and scheduling an in-store appointment. Our associates will be able to help you in reviewing your account to make sure you are sure of how this process will work before making your purchase.
I hope I was able to provide some clarification! Please let me know if you have any other questions or concerns I can help with.
