iPhone X pre-orders go live in just a few days, and three of the big four wireless carriers in the United States have announced their discounts, deals, and trade-in terms for the new flagship device. The offers from Sprint, T-Mobile, and Verizon can save buyers up to $350.
Sprint iPhone X Deal
Sprint was first out of the discount gate, announcing $350 savings on the iPhone X when obtained on the Sprint Flex leasing plan. The plan brings monthly payments for a 64GB iPhone X down to $22.22 over 18 months, a savings of $19.45 per month. Buyers will have to trade-in an eligible smartphone to get the deal. (iPhone 6 and up are eligible for the trade-in deal, and certain Android devices are also available.)
Upon completion of the 18 month lease period, (12 months for “iPhone Forever” customers), customers can turn in their iPhone X for a new iPhone model, or continue to make payments on the device, keeping it once the payments are finished. (Payments increase to $41.67 per month for the remaining 6 months of the two-year plan.)
Verizon’s deals offers up to $300 off an iPhone X with an eligible trade-in. The deal is only available to current Go Unlimited and Beyond Unlimited subscribers eligible for a device upgrade, or to new customers who subscribe to an unlimited plan. Users will pay $41.66 per month during a lease period of 24 months.
The $300 trade-in discount will be paid out over the 24 months as a payment discount, when an eligible device is offered up for trade-in. (Get the full $300 for a iPhone 6s series or iPhone 7 series handset. Get $200 for iPhone 6, 6 Plus and iPhone SE, and a $100 discount for iPhone 5, 5s and 5C device trade-ins.)
Subscribers will be required to keep their iPhone X for a full two years to reap the entire trade-in benefits. Customers who wish to switch to a new device before the 24-month period is over, or who wish to downgrade from the unlimited service plan, will be required to pay off the lease balance and will not receive the remaining discount payments.
T-Mobile iPhone X Deal
The Magenta carrier’s deal is similar to Verizon’s setup. T-Mobile customers will get up to $300 off the purchase of an iPhone X, when purchased via the carrier’s monthly installment program, and they must trade-in an eligible device.
Some of T-Mobile’s up to $300 payment will be paid up front, depending on the trade-in value of the customer’s device. The balance of the trade-in amount will be applied over the course of 24 monthly payments. (If an iPhone 7 is the trade-in device, T-Mobile will pay the entire $300 up front. An iPhone SE may only bring $100 up front, with the remaining $200 in discounts meted out over the next two years.
Payments can vary, according to which T-Mobile equipment plan you enroll in.
