T-Mobile’s new iPhone 6s deal prompts Sprint to launch $1 per month offer


One day after T-Mobile confirmed its $5 iPhone 6s trade-in promotion, Sprint has fired back with a new offer of its own.

Starting September 25, Sprint will sell a 16GB iPhone 6s for $1 per month with an iPhone 6 trade-in. Larger capacities will be available, too, with the 64GB iPhone 6s coming in at $5.77 per month and the 128GB model priced at $10.53 per month. Meanwhile, the 16GB, 64GB, and 128GB iPhone 6s Plus will be priced at $5, $9.77, and $14.53, respectively.

Sprint’s also got a deal for iPhone 5s users that’ll get them a 16GB iPhone 6s for $10 per month or a 16GB iPhone 6s Plus for $14 per month with trade-in. Finally, Sprint will sell the 16GB iPhone 6s for $15 per month with the trade-in of “any other smartphone.”

This $1 iPhone 6s trade-in deal is part of Sprint’s iPhone Forever lease program, which lets customers upgrade whenever there’s a new iPhone available that they don’t already have.

John Legere hasn’t responded to Sprint’s new offer yet, but I’m interested to see what he’ll have to say, and I’m betting many of you are, too. I’ll be sure to update this post when our CEO responds to Sprint’s announcement.

    How about free iphones for life? simply too much lol

    Great for customers!

    It’s insanity!

    Nothing like confusing the hell out of everyone now.

    • 21stNow

      I know. I stay on phone forums and social media about phones all day and I find this latest round of promos to be entirely too confusing. I didn’t think that I could trust carriers less than I did but I was wrong.

      • Fhritp

        I do the same and I entirely agree

  • Walt

    Must you pay off the phones full retail price if you decide to leave Sprint at the end of the lease?

  • YABD

    Oh my God! The end of the world is coming.

    • Not, Yet…

      Not, Yet. I have to still get my iphone to make it a better world, LOL, LOL, LOL.

  • JaswinderSinghJammu

    It’s great option if you a Sprint and iPhone fan.

  • ssjchaseutley

    I forgot Sprint was even a company. Who even has Sprint these days?

    Desperate times calls for desperate measures

  • Great for the Consumers…

    Yes, I love Good and Healthy Competition. Simply said, it is great for paying consumers…

  • KingCobra

    Hopefully T-Mobile matches. Then I’ll cancel my Apple reservation and buy one from T-Mobile.

  • StaceyMJ86

    I don’t care if Sprint offered me a free iPhone and plan, I still wouldn’t go back to them. I spent 3 miserable, 4G LTE less years with them. I won’t do it again.

    • Mike Palomba

      I agree 100%

      • Austin

        I have no issues with my sprint. Actually I switched to sprint from T-Mobile because their coverage is better (where I live)

        • Mike Palomba

          It depends where you are but as of now, with a 700MHZ (band 12) compatible device, you are more likely to get better coverage on T-Mobile.

        • Austin

          Not here. US Cellular holds all the 700 MHz spectrum here and T-Mobile can’t get ahold of any of it. Saint Louis area

  • Adam

    The non-iPhone 6 trade in price for Sprint was $15. It is a 22 month lease, so 22*(15-1) = $308 is what you would be getting for your old iPhone 6. I also have not seen anything about the Sprint residual being discounted like T-Mobile.

  • Seth

    Competition is bad for consumers. There I said what no one else will say.

    • 21stNow

      Is there some sarcasm that I’m missing here?

  • dtam

    who else loves price wars? now there needs to be a price war on android phones!

    • Mike Palomba

      Android phones really don’t need price wars because within 2 or 3 months their prices drop dramatically

      • Jose Lugo

        Gotta Agree, Note 4 has dropped it’s 700$ price in the last few months. Nexus 6 has been cut in half. Def gotta be patient when it comes to a new phone plus, gotta wait for the holidays for the deals that come around!

        • Mike Palomba

          I really wish I would’ve waited to preorder the 6s until the new JOD deal came out. I would be paying $5 per month compared to $27. On the other hand, by the time it came out the backorder list was probably so high I wouldn’t have seen the phone until next month.

        • dtam

          I ordered my sister’s 6s 64gb in rose gold this past Monday and it’s coming tomorrow…don’t believe the Apple soldout hype. Watch the futurama eyephone episode

        • Tro209

          Lol, futurama got it spot on

        • David Icke

          They retroactively are offering the new 5$ JOD plan to anyone who ordered before the 25th. You still will need to trade in your device – but those who preordered will be able to take advantage of it.

    • Ordeith

      Only the foolishly uninformed or willfully ignorant really use Android anyway.

      • 21stNow

        And what do the intelligently informed people use?

        • Ordeith

          Not Google.

        • Goat

          So what….Windows?

      • dtam

        Haha, fantastic troll comment. It’s funny because you can replace “android” with “Apple” and many would argue the statement would be more correct

        • Ordeith

          Snowden and Assange didn’t have much to say about Apple. It’s pretty much just Android that can be used to keep the statement correct.

    • atown7475

      I’d prefer a price war on gas

  • Fabian Cortez

    Why not free?

    Once again, Sprint missed out on an opportunity.

    Sure, $1 is competitive, but I think we all know John will come around with “free.”

    Not to mention 18 months versus 22 months and tethering versus $50 tethering.

    Oh and the network.

    • Santiago Vo

      I don’t want “free”, I want “any smartphone” accepted as trade-in just like they promised initially…

  • Bryck

    This is great for the consumer. My goodness even my girlfriend which is with Verizon is thinking about taking advantage of the $5 promotion, and jump to the T-mobile Mother ship, never mind Sprint even if it was $0, forget the $1 dollars promotion. And not to diss Sprint, but our business phones always switch to roaming as soon as we go inside the shop.

  • SirStephenH

    Can you please stop forcing the rest of us to subsidize other people’s iPhones?

  • GinaDee

    Shall I say race to the bottom Sprint? They must be desperate?

    The only people I know who like Sprint and purposely use them are current and former employees OR S4GRU nuts.

    • Fabian Cortez

      Or those holding on tight to those really cheap ED1500 plans!

  • notyourbusiness

    Sprint’s desperation is quite sad. Maybe if its network was better, people would take advantage of this offer.

    • Mike

      I have an iPhone 6 on Sprint off contract and I was kinda tempted by this offer but I don’t wanna get tied down with no contract or lease.

  • walt

    Must you pay off the phones full retail price if you decide to leave Sprint at the end of the lease and want to keep it? would the phone still cost you $650 in the long run?

  • Alex
  • Thank you…

    Awesome, Awesome, simply said, Awesome. Thank you…

  • Santiago Vo

    Yeah, that’s IF “any smartphone” is accepted as a trade-in, but we don’t see it so far.

    • Alex

      Well, I guess it should say “working smartphone”. My friend traded in a $10 phone he bought from Amazon and a $15 phone from Best Buy.
