T-Mobile Celebrates Record-Shattering Demand with Unbeatable $5 per Month Offer on iPhone 6s.

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!Choosing a cell phone plan usually involves wading through a maze of options from the major carriers, but personal finance site WalletHub.com estimates that consumers can save up to 30% on average off of their monthly bill if they keep their phone for a third year and switch from a subsidized plan to a contract-free plan. “It makes sense. On Wednesday, T-Mobile announced that it would offer the iPhone 6s 16 GB devices for just $5 per month for customers who trade in a iPhone 6, 6 Plus, Galaxy S6 Edge, or Note 5; a $10 monthly price for iPhone 5s and Galaxy S5 trade-ins; and $15 for older smartphones like the iPhone 5 or 5c.

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. Apple unveiled an installment plan earlier this month where consumers can lease a 16-gigabyte iPhone 6S for $32 per month (almost $778 over two years) – including the AppleCare+ warranty (which usually costs $99 a year).

That’s instead of paying $650 on a two-year carrier contract with AT&T T, -0.22% or Verizon VZ, -1.01% and locked into an older phone for half that time. Sprint offers an “iPhone forever” program where you pay $22 a month to lease a 16GB iPhone 6 (the 2014 version) or $15 a month when trading in an old phone, a Sprint spokeswoman says; she says the company will soon announce prices for the 6S plans. That’s nowhere near the $450 discount consumers used to get on new phones by agreeing to a two-year contract, but it’s better than no discount, which is what the other carriers are giving.

John Legere, the chief executive of the T-Mobile who has been known to battle with rivals on social media, said that the company is seeing “crazy demand” for iPhone preorders. WalletHub’s “Cell Phone Savings Calculator” allows consumers to compare the cost of two-year contracts, installment plans and no-contract plans from major carriers. Verizon and AT&T may offer financing so you don’t have to pay for the whole cost of a new phone at once, but their financing options don’t save you any money off the $649 price of an iPhone 6s: Verizon offers monthly payments of $27 for 24 months for a new phone, and AT&T offers monthly payments of $21 for 30 months. Wireless carriers have been replacing traditional two-year contracts that include smartphone subsidies with installment plans that spread the price out and encourage swapping out phones.

Sprint and T-Mobile’s lease plans are among the cheapest overall options, while a phone on the AT&T network purchased with Apple’s installment plan is the most expensive. (AT&T did not respond to requests for comment.) The calculator assumes individuals would use at least 3 gigabytes of data per month and families would use at least 12GB, and added data overage fees to monthly data plan costs for AT&T. “Sprint and T-Mobile are both trying to undercut each other and trying to persuade you to keep your phone for more than two years,” says Louis Ramirez, senior editor at DealNews.com. 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. Most carriers are moving toward an unsubsidized model where you can make monthly payments for your phone. “At the end of the day, you’re still on the hook until you finish paying off that phone,” he adds. (A T-Mobile spokesman says it’s offering a promotion where customers can get any iPhone 6s or 6s Plus model for $125 off the full retail price. That offer marks a sharp turn in the relationship between Apple, which needs to sell tens of millions of new phones each year, and wireless giants that rely on the iPhone to attract customers to their cellular plans. 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!

But there are people who don’t feel an immediate need to upgrade.” They take care of their phone, he says, “and they mainly use their phone to browse the Internet and text.” Legere said the company had already surpassed the 2.1 million net subscriber additions it posted in its previous quarter with nearly two weeks remaining in the current quarter. September is particularly significant time period for wireless carriers with the launch of Apple’s new iPhone as well as the annual return of vacationers and students that stirs up subscriber activity. Starting Friday, September 25th at 8:00 am local time, new iPhones will be available at participating T-Mobile stores nationwide, subject to inventory availability, and online at www.t-mobile.com/apple.

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