T-Mobile kicks off iPhone trade-in offer, iPhone 6s available for as little as $100


If you’re in the market for a new iPhone and aren’t interested in the iPhone 7 that’s rumored to be coming next month, T-Mobile has a deal for you.

T-Mobile today kicked off an iPhone trade-in offer that’ll get you a discounted iPhone 6s or iPhone 6s Plus. With this deal, you can trade in your iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, or iPhone 6s Plus and get a 16GB iPhone 6s for $100. If phablets are more your thing, you can trade in an iPhone 6 Plus and get a 16GB iPhone 6s Plus for $100, or trade an iPhone 6 or 6s and get the 16GB iPhone 6s Plus for $200.

If you’ve got an older iPhone, you can take part in the deal, too. You can trade in an iPhone 5, iPhone 5c, iPhone 5s, or iPhone SE to get the 16GB iPhone 6s for $350 or the 16GB iPhone 6s Plus for $450.

Whichever device you decide to trade in, it must be paid off, be able to be powered on, be in working condition, have “Find My iPhone” disabled, and have no cracks on its display.


T-Mobile will also let you get an iPhone with more storage if 16GB isn’t sufficient. You can get a 64GB model for $100 extra or a 128GB variant for $200 more.

This deal is available to new and existing postpaid customers. You can take advantage of the offer online, in stores, or through telesales. No matter which you choose, though, you’ll have to get your new iPhone on EIP. Once you get your new phone, the offer will be applied via bill credits. If you cancel service before your 24-month EIP is up, you’ll owe the remaining balance on your iPhone.

Finally, T-Mo says that this iPhone trade-in deal can’t be combined with other offers.

The iPhone 7 is expected to be announced in early September and then released in mid-September, but some folks may not be interested in Apple’s next phone based on the rumors that’ve been surrounding it. For example, it’s rumored that Apple will ditch the 3.5mm headphone jack on the iPhone 7 and that its design will be fairly similar to the iPhone 6 and 6s. If you’ve got an older iPhone and don’t find the iPhone 7 appealing based on these rumors, you could take advantage of this trade-in offer and get a deal on an iPhone 6s or 6s Plus.

T-Mobile’s iPhone trade-in offer launched today, August 24, and will be available for a limited time.

      Hopefully they skip AMOLED, and go for OLED displays.

    I see if you have a 6 or 6 plus it may be a deal to upgrade a generation for $100 but if you have any other phone or anything but the lowest storage, it seems the deal looses it’s appeal .Go from the 6S Plus down to the cheaper 6S and pay $100?? And with older phones, the 5 and the much newer and better SE are the same. What a deal for T-Mobile. Really disappointing that would offer such a lackluster deal and dress it up so it seems good.

      I asked the same on T-Mobile chat as well. Disappointing. If I want a 64gb 6s, and trade in a 16gb 6 or a 64gb 6 or a 128gb 6, it still costs $200 to upgrade (even though the traded-in memory model varies).

      • Sparky

        I would do this in a heartbeat if I could trade in my 128gb iPhone 6 for a 128gb 6s for $100. Doesn’t seem worth it, though, if I have to pay the same to upgrade the memory as someone who only traded in a 16gb iPhone 6.

    Not a great deal if you have a 64gb model. I wanted to trade my iPhone 6+ for an iPhone 6s. No allowance for the 64gb model.

  • They’re basically giving you a $200 discount if you bring in a 16 GB model and consider that as soon as the new iPhone 7 is out the current models will be reduced by $100.

    I wound up ordering a couple of Verizon Refurb iPhone 6s 64gb Gold phones from Best Buy for $449 each. Supposedly will be in good condition and Apple will adjust and give a full 12-month warranty on them. I’ll then (soon) sell my kids’ iPhone 6 phones for at least $400 each. That way, it’s less net money and I don’t have to add the small monthly payments to my current T-Mobile bill.

    Can I trade in my mytouch4g for the 6S? I have ben customer for 12 years ,

    I have got iPhone 6s Plus 16GB with exchange of my iPhone 5 16GB. I did not pay anything yet. They said every month they charge $18.75 (450/24) and they do bill credit $10.29 for 24 months. At the end every month I get charged $8.46(18.75-10.29) which comes to $203 after 24 months.

    This is like you get iPhone 6s 16GB for just $103 and plus size of $203. Is there any hidden cost I am missing?

    The iPhone 7 trade-in is a better deal. I should have waited. I could have gotten an iPhone 7 128gb for $150 less than I got the iPhone 6s 64gb. I just got the 6s this past weekend. Oh well.

  • Sam

    You can return your 6s and get 7 for $50 restocking fee. You can do this 14 days from the date you received the 6s.

  • Sam

    Wyn50, I just spoke with t-mobile supervisor. He said, we will be paying $203 in 24 months. iPhone7 is $100 extra in trade-in offer
