Sprint offers Apple’s iPhone 6s for $1 per month with trade-in

“How low will they go? The price war between Sprint and T-Mobile continues to rage on,” Hope King reports for CNN. “Sprint slashed the cost of its iPhone Forever plan to $1 a month for a 16 GB iPhone 6S on Thursday, and $5 a month for a 16 GB iPhone 6S Plus. The catch is you have to trade-in an iPhone 6.”

“The iPhone Forever plan lets customers lease iPhones from Sprint, and upgrade to a new device whenever Apple releases a new smartphone,” King reports. “Regular price for a 22-month commitment with a trade-in is $22 a month, and $27 a month.”

“T-Mobile cut its monthly Jump On Demand price from more than $25 a month to $5 a month for an iPhone 6S on Tuesday,” King reports. “The company also cut the price for the iPhone 6S Plus from about $31 a month to $9 a month.”

“Though Verizon and AT&T aren’t racing to the bottom on price, both are offering up to $300 ($400 on Verizon) for switching to their service and trading in an old smartphone,” King reports. “That gets you within striking distance of Sprint and T-Mobile’s monthly costs when spread out over the course of two years.”

  1. I am extremely happy I stuck with Sprint when I for the last year. Network improvements have been dramatic in the SLC/Provo market. My only complaint is coverage when traveling on rural interstates but that only happens 2x per year.
