Apple Stores to start offering iPhones via carrier financing on August 20th

“A significant number of Apple Stores in the United States will likely begin offering iPhone sales via the latest carrier financing programs later this month, according to several sources,” Mark Gurman reports for 9to5Mac.

“We previously detailed that Apple Stores will soon offer iPhones on AT&T Next, Verizon Edge, and the T-Mobile Jump plans, and now we’ve learned some new information on the matter,” Gurman reports. “We’re told that Apple is tentatively planning to begin rolling out the programs on Wednesday, August 20th as a pilot.”

Gurman reports, “We’ve also been sent a couple of slides from internal Apple employee training materials showcasing what exact plans will be offered.”

  1. Nice. Too bad those out in the country don’t have Apple Stores. I guess they just have to stick with ol’ Sammy products…or make that grueling day long trip to the “hood” to get their Apple fix. Knowing those good ok’ country folk, they would drive to the nearby Wal Mart, and get a Droid. I love Minneapolis! 🙂

    1. Or they could order them via the internet. You appear to have an unreasonably low opinion of “good ol’ country folk.” There is plenty of intelligence in the rural areas and probably more than a fair share of the common sense, to boot.
