Apple halts iPhone 6S pre-orders.

BELLEVUE, Wash., Sep 23, 2015 (BUSINESS WIRE) — 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!The flamboyant Legere broke the news shortly before unveiling a promotional offer whereby iPhone owners can trade up to an iPhone 6S at T-Mobile on opening day—Friday, Sept. 25—for as little as $5 per month.With Apple announcing its new leasing — or “financing” — program at its iPhone 6s launch event earlier this month, it seems that T-Mobile doesn’t want to be left behind.

Local classifieds have filled up with numerous postings from people looking to secure buyers before they collect them on Friday morning from telcos and resellers, which have sold out on pre-orders. Sales of the new phones begin at 8 a.m. local time in Australia, Canada, China, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Japan, New Zealand, Puerto Rico, Singapore, the UK and the US Apple says it will have product in stock for walk-in sales, and is advising customers to come early. The U.S. carrier’s social media savvy boss, John Legere, took to Twitter late Tuesday to announce that T-Mobile customers will be able to trade in their current iPhone 6 or iPhone 5s models for a shiny new iPhone 6s.

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. We reported Monday that Samsung is also supposedly planning its own Apple-style leasing program for its premium Galaxy smartphones — further evidence of a major shift underway that could spell bad news for carriers’ traditional business models. 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. On Demand and your trade-in: When you sign up for the introductory price, you keep it for the full length of your JUMP! on Demand agreement for as long as you use that phone on T-Mobile – no price increases!

While China is now included in the first wave of countries to get the iPhone officially from Apple, some resellers still see the potential bringing in the devices there because the phones are sold out there as well, and resellers expect a segment of the market to pay top dollar to skip the wait. According to a Fortune report, the iPhone 6S pre-orders were completely filled out in China in not allowing cash payments (link in Chinese) in-store, and only allowing people to purchase iPhones via online bookings, in hopes of stopping resellers from clearing out stores in person. The Company’s advanced nationwide 4G LTE network delivers outstanding wireless experiences for customers who are unwilling to compromise on quality and value.

It currently serves approximately 59 million wireless customers and provides products and services through approximately 70,000 total points of distribution.
