T-Mobile Offering iPhone 6s Starting at $5/Month With iPhone 6 Trade In

T-Mobile CEO John Legere has announced on Twitter that it will offer the iPhone 6s for as low as $5 per month through JUMP! On Demand with an iPhone 6 trade in, or as low as $10 per month with an iPhone 5s trade in. The exact monthly payment will range between $5 and $15 per month depending on the iPhone 6s model you purchase and older iPhone model traded in.

If you do not want to trade in your current iPhone, T-Mobile has a JUMP! On Demand promotion that offers the 16GB iPhone 6s for $20 per month for 18 months with zero dollars paid upfront, totaling $360 under the agreement the device is returned in good condition. To keep the iPhone, you must pay an additional $164, bringing the total cost to $524 -- a savings of $125 and the best deal for those willing to join T-Mobile.


T-Mobile will begin selling the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus on September 25. The smartphones will support T-Mobile's Extended Range LTE on the 700MHz spectrum, which extends the network's LTE signal twice as far from its cellular towers and works four times better in buildings. T-Mobile Extended Range LTE is live in 175 markets and covers more than half of the American population.

T-Mobile will honor this deal for customers who already pre-ordered an iPhone 6s or 6s Plus.

Ok Guys, can you explain how this works please. Ready to order up, and trade a 6 and a 5s.
I just tested a pre-paid sim for 3 days, and I have to tell you I am shocked that the data speeds blew ATT out of the water in SW florida. Even on Sanibel island today it was rock solid up and down. I was floored.

I am bouncing finally from ATT

Please correct me if I'm wrong.

Trade in 6: $5/month x 18months = $90
W/o trade in: $20/month x 18 = $360
Cost of iphone 6 = $360 - $90 = $270?

IF this is true, then not really a good deal no? Pretty sure you can get a little more for your iphone 6 on craigslist...

I wonder how t-mobile re-coup cost?

something not adding up;

They keep the phone once you return it therefore they resell it. Instead of a massive marketing campaign budget they rely on a simple tweet and people start to talk about it, they are increasing their user base and they make money with their services.

Wait a minute, if that is the case, you are saying it will cost $60/year to get the latest iphone every year? That would be insane...


Also, T-Mobile is breaking the payments in 18 months with a residential payoff amount after 18 months. So in my case I will be paying $23/month for the iPhone 6S+ 64GB. If I kept it for 18 months I would owe $264 lump sum payment. 18x$23=$414+$264=$678. The price of the iPhone 6S+ 64GB is $894. But I plan on upgrading after 12 months. 12x$23=$276 and turn it in and get the iPhone 7 for $23/month again.

EDIT: The best part I don't have to go through the hassle of selling the phone at the end of the year.

Wow. This is a scam. Why? You are selling a iPhone 6 for $270.

$524 if you buy with cash
- $90 for 18 month ($5 x 18)
- $164 to keep the phone after 18 month
-------
$270. You bring a shinny 1 year old iPhone 6 for $270.

I know, people are completely ignoring the buyback value of the phone. You can go to gazelle right now and get $325 for a 64gb 6, more if you sell on eBay.

Yeah. I am trying to figure out how I get on this as I was going to do the AUP. I own my iPhone 6, i paid off my EIP a few months after I switched over last year and was going to sell it. Do I have to trade it in? Can I trade in my 5C instead to start on the JOD thing? Is there an access fee? Or just the service plan + the JOD cot of the phone? #somanyquestions


JOD does not require a trade-in. My wife and I both have iPhone 5 and we joined JOD without trading in a phone.

EDIT: We are giving the kids the iPhone 5.

The crazy part is that even after you trade your phone in you still have to come out of pocket for a down payment.

If ETF buyout applies to this too, T-Mobile is actually looking like a solid option.

The big question is how long of a wait is it to receive a 6s/6s Plus through T-Mobile at this point. I have a reservation at an Apple Store for launch day but they only offer T-Mobile at full price AFAIK.

Been wanting to get away from ATT for a while. T-Mobile is starting to look like the best option at this point.


I can recommend this move. I did it myself this past year to move to the iPhone 6. Couldn't be happier, and the 6s' Extended Range LTE will be fantastic. Seen it work great on my brother's S6 Edge
