It’s hard to believe T-Mobile was once the only major U.S. carrier not selling the iPhone in stores, considering how insane its iPhone 6s offers are. The ‘uncarrier’ has some of the best iPhone 6s prices in the world – we already told you how good they are – but things get even better if you’re willing to trade in a functional iPhone or other smartphone. The newer the device, the more money you’ll save, and you may end up spending as little as $5 per month for a new iPhone 6s.
T-Mobile’s “Jump on Demand” offers are even better than Apple’s installments plan, and competitors will likely have no choice but to adjust to these new pricing schemes.
Redditor 50atomic posted detailed the costs for all iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus versions in various trade-in scenarios:
These prices are in line with what T-Mobile John Legere said on Twitter yesterday. “5/ On Friday, you can get the new #iPhone6s at @TMobile w/ #JUMPonDemand for $5, $10 or $15/month – depending on model and trade-in #BOOM,” Legere tweeted. The CEO confirmed that T-Mobile customers who have already preordered the iPhone 6s can also get the better pricing offer starting Friday.
T-Mobile posted the following iPhone 6s Jump on Demand pricing table on Wednesday when making the new deals official. As you can readily notice, trading in a Galaxy S6, S6 Edge or Note 5 will also let you get on the $5/month iPhone 6s pricing.
Sure, we’ll point out that you’ll probably get a better price if you plan to sell your “old” iPhone 6 directly through Craigslist, eBay or any other site and then buy the iPhone 6s, if you hurry. But T-Mobile and other carriers take the hassle out of the upgrade process, so it’s up to you to decide which way to go.
Finally, the full press release announcing the new deal follows below.
T-Mobile Celebrates Record-Shattering Demand with Unbeatable $5 per Month Offer on iPhone 6s
On the heels of an unprecedented surge in T-Mobile’s iPhone pre-orders over last year’s record, the Un-carrier doubles down with the offer of iPhone 6s 16GB for an unbeatable $5 a month with JUMP! On Demand and an iPhone 6 trade-in
Bellevue, Washington — September 23, 2015 — On the cusp of iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus availability, T-Mobile today announced it’s doubling down on what was already an unprecedented offer on your new iPhone – unveiling an absolutely unbeatable $5 a month for iPhone 6s 16GB and $9 a month for iPhone 6s Plus 16GB with JUMP! On Demand and trade-in of an iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus. This new offer is unmatched in the industry, building on an already record-breaking pre-order performance over last year at T-Mobile.
“With these incredible $5 and $10 a month deals, we’re giving customers just one more reason to come to T-Mobile,” said John Legere, president and CEO of T-Mobile. “This is a deal that only the Un-carrier could create, let alone make into a reality – and the crazy demand we’re already seeing tells me the carriers’ customers just aren’t buying their BS anymore. For your new iPhone the choice couldn’t be clearer.”
T-Mobile’s new pricing builds on the Un-carrier’s straightforward $20 a month for a new iPhone 6s 16GB with JUMP! On Demand without a trade-in. Now, your trade-in value for any old phone you own brings that monthly price down even more – $10 a month with trade-in of iPhone 5s, Note 5 or Note edge and $15 a month with trade-in of almost any other phone you own like iPhone 5, iPhone 5c, Galaxy S4, Galaxy S3, HTC M8 and Motorola Droid Turbo. At T-Mobile, you’ll get what your trade in is worth.
The Un-carrier’s also doing right by those customers who already pre-ordered their new iPhone with trade-in, giving them the same great offer with an upfront bill credit. Below is a full breakdown of prices for iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus with JUMP! On Demand and your trade-in:
And, if you want to hang on to your iPhone after your 18 month JUMP! On Demand agreement is up, you can at T-Mobile for $125 LESS than the full retail price. That’s just $524 for a new iPhone 6s 16GB. In fact, T-Mobile is the only provider offering iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus at a discounted price.
