The iPhone X will be available for preorder later this week, but the price wars between carriers have already started. T-Mobile, Sprint, and Verizon are all ready to cut the price by up to $350 as long as you don’t mind trading in a working phone. Want to know what your best options are when preordering a new iPhone X beginning this Friday? We’ll break everything down for you right here in this post.
The “Uncarrier” will give you $300 off the iPhone X (or either of the iPhone 8 models) as long as you’re ready to trade in a qualifying iPhone. The savings are applied via 24 monthly bill credits.
On top of that, T-Mobile also has a new iPhone upgrade program in place that lets you get the latest iPhone as soon as you pay off 50% of your current model.
Here’s T-Mobile’s pricing structure for the iPhone X:
Equipment Installment Plan
- 64GB: $279.99 down, $30 a month (FRP: $999.99)
- 256GB: $429.99 down, $30 a month (FRP: $1,149.99)
JUMP! On Demand (for well qualified customers)
- 64GB: $0 down, $41.56 a month (FRP: $999.99)
- 256GB: $429.99 down, $24 a month (FRP: $1,149.99)
Sprint also wants to make the iPhone X seem cheaper, and the carrier will slash prices by $350. However, you have to trade in an eligible smartphone from this list: iPhone 7, iPhone 7 Plus, iPhone 6 and 6 plus, iPhone 6s and 6s Plus, Samsung GS8, Samsung GS8+, Samsung GS7, Samsung GS7 Edge, Samsung Note 5, LG G5, LG G6, LG V20, Google Pixel, Google Pixel XL, Moto Z Droid, Moto Z Play, Moto Z2 Force, Moto Z Force Droid, Moto Z2 Play, BlackBerry KEYone, HTC U11.
Sprint says that new and current customers will only pay $22.22 per month for 18 months after the trade-in, which lowers the phone’s cost to $400. Sprint also has an iPhone Forever upgrade plan for the iPhone that will let customers upgrade to the next iPhone after 12 Sprint Flex installments.
Finally, Sprint also announced a Best Price Guarantee on iPhone X initiative. If you see a better iPhone X price anywhere else, Sprint will match it the price difference.
Verizon also announced that it’ll offer you a discount of up to $300 on the iPhone X, and the credit will be applied over 24 months. You’ll still have to trade in an eligible device to take advantage of the offer.
AT&T hasn’t yet announced its plans for iPhone X incentives, but we’ll update this post as soon as is does.
