It is likely the best deal on the hottest new smartphone by the No. 4 U.S. wireless carrier that has found innovative ways of competing with the bigger players.
The latest salvo in the iPhone 6s price/leasing wars has T-Mobile offering $5 a month with “JUMP! On Demand” for the iPhone 6s, with an iPhone 6 trade-in.
It’s all possible through T-Mobile’s newest variation of its existing JUMP! program. The On Demand version let’s you upgrade to a new smartphone up to three times a year for free. With the plan, you aren’t buying an iPhone — you’re agreeing to pay a certain amount each month for 18 months. At the end of the term, you can keep your phone for an additional $164 (which is $125 cheaper than the retail price of a new iPhone).
T-Mobile’s new offer builds on the its $20 a month offer for a new iPhone 6s 16GB with “JUMP! On Demand” — but 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 4 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.
“With these incredible $5 and $10 a month deals, we’re giving customers just one more reason to come to T-Mobile,” boasts John Legere, president and CEO of T-Mobile, in a statement. “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 calls itself the ‘Un-carrier,” a moniker it has earned by setting new customer-friendly standards that its bigger competitors have been forced to adopt, such as no-contract plans, no-interest monthly payments on smartphones and now the cheapest trade-in pricing.
