Apple just officially announced the iPhone 6s yesterday, but the most hotly anticipated smartphone of the year is already on sale. On Thursday morning, T-Mobile announced that it would be kicking off a limited time promotion in which customers will be able to pick up a 16GB iPhone 6s for $125 off the regular price.

Traditionally, on T-Mobile’s 18-month JUMP program, you’d be paying $649 over a year and a half, but with the promotion, that price will be cut down to $524. After paying $20/month for 18 months, you can either give the phone back or pay the remaining $164 to keep your iPhone 6s for good.

T-Mobile is making the deal even more attractive by allowing customers to leave T-Mobile if they’re unhappy with the coverage they receive from the carrier. All you have to do is tell T-Mobile that you’re unsatisfied, and they’ll unlock your phone for free while letting you continue to pay for the device itself on the 18-month plan.

UPDATE: It’s worth noting that in the fine print of the plan, T-Mobile states the following: “If you cancel service, promotional device pricing, offers, and device upgrades unavailable.” So in other words, if you want to unlock your device and move to a new carrier, it looks you’ll end up paying the full monthly price for the iPhone 6s rather than the discounted rate.

Additionally, John Legere noted in his blog post that T-Mobile has “more than doubled the square miles we cover with LTE in just over a year.” Combine that with the additional spectrum “that carries our LTE signal twice as far from our towers, for a massive coverage expansion, and works four times better in buildings,” and you’ve got a new initiative the “un”carrier is calling T-Mobile Extended Range LTE. No, it’s not anything the other carriers don’t already offer, but it shows that T-Mobile is catching up.

If you’re looking for an affordable way to upgrade to the new iPhone 6s and want to see if T-Mobile’s network is really as great as Legere claims, you’ll be able to preorder the phone on T-Mobile’s website this Saturday.

Post updated to clarify terms.
