Walmart will begin offering the 16 GB iPhone 5c for $0.97 with a two-year contract during the next 90 days, reports Engadget.
iphone_5s_5c.jpg The move by the retailer follows a permanent discount of the 16GB iPhone 5c to $29 in June, as Walmart will offer the special pricing to customers on AT&T, Sprint, Verizon, and US Cellular. The company is also dropping the on-contract price of the 16GB iPhone 5s to $79, down from $99.

It is likely that these new price drops are being done to get rid of existing inventory before the introduction of the iPhone 6, which will be unveiled on September 9 and likely go on sale about a week later. The 4.7-inch iPhone 6 is expected to be launched first, as the release of the 5.5-inch version may be delayed due to production issues. Both versions are likely to incorporate a faster A8 chip, a new camera system, an improved Touch ID fingerprint sensor, and iOS 8.

Not everyone needs (or even wants) the latest, greatest model. These are some nice deals, and will remain so even after the iPhone 6 is launched.

Really? An unlocked iPhone with no strings attached? :eek:



Ah, I see. Yet another misleading headline. :rolleyes:

Sort of preaching to the wrong choir aren't you? Forum members tend to understand phone subsidies. :confused:

I hope no one buys it if they don't have to because the new will come out soon. Unless they can't afford the new one.
Or don't care...

For once, I'm not looking forward to the latest iPhones. I'll gladly pick up one of these if apple does go thru with the Dino sizes.

For those who are determined to stick to the 4" display, these deals are great.

I fully expect this pricing to remain when the iPhone 6 comes out - and I also expect to see a good bump in sales of these models because of it.

I can see plenty of companies jumping on the 5C at Free/$449 and 5S at $99/$549 for their employees.

I'm telling you....Apple is going to sell more iPhones than anyone else sells of all their smartphones next quarter. Just watch.
