T-Mobile confirms iPhone XR pricing ahead of pre-orders

iphonexrcoral

The iPhone XR will be available for pre-order soon, and we’ve got all of the pricing details you need to know before you buy.

T-Mobile will begin taking pre-orders for the iPhone XR at 12:01 am PT. It’ll be available in 64GB, 128GB, and 256GB storage options as well as black, blue, yellow, white, coral, and red color options. Here’s how much each model will cost:

  • 64GB iPhone XR: $0 down and $31.25 per month for 24 months on EIP, $0 down and $20.84 per month for 36 months on EIP, $0 down and $31.00 per month for 18 months on JOD, $749.99 full retail
  • 128GB iPhone XR: $79.99 down and $30 per month for 24 months, $49.99 down and $20.84 per month for 36 months, $79.99 down and $29.00 per month for an 18-month JOD lease, $799.99 full retail
  • 256GB iPhone XR: $179.99 down and $30 per month for 24 months, $149.99 down and $20.84 per month for 36 months, $179.99 down and $28.00 per month for an 18-month JOD lease, $899.99 full retail

T-Mobile is also kicking off a promotion to help customers save some cash on an iPhone XR. To get it, you’ll need to trade in an eligible smartphone — a list can be found here — and you can get $360, $250, or $150 via 36 monthly bill credits towards the purchase of your new device. Customers who take advantage of this deal can get their new phone and monthly plan for $40 per month, which includes a T-Mobile Essentials plan for a family of four with autopay. You can also step up to a T-Mobile One plan for $50 per month for a family of four with autopay.

As a refresher, the iPhone XR features a 6.1-inch 1792×828 LCD screen, Apple A12 Bionic processor, and a 12MP rear camera with f/1.8 aperture, Portrait Mode, and True Tone flash. There’s a 7MP front-facing camera in the iPhone XR’s notch, dual SIM support (nanoSIM and eSIM), and IP67 water and dust resistance. And like other recent iPhone models, there’s no 3.5mm headphone jack to be found here.

One other detail worth mentioning is that the iPhone XR supports T-Mobile’s 600MHz LTE network, which is now available in more than 1,250 cities and towns. 600MHz LTE helps to improve coverage, reaching farther and penetrating buildings better than mid-band LTE.

The iPhone XR will officially launch on October 26th. Now that we’ve got all the pricing info and the pre-orders are about to begin, what do you think of Apple’s colorful new phone? Are you going to pre-order?

    36 months. Geez!

    • sidog

      I don’t get why everyone’s complaining about TMO giving people the OPTION of the 36mo payment plan. If someone out there wants to spread cost the over 36 months, they now can…TMO is not forcing anyone to use it. They can always pay it off outright or in 12 months.

      • cant blame tmo.. they are just giving options to those that need it.. you can always pay it off faster.. it also keeps the client on tmo for atleast 36 months

        • Mickey T

          Giving the option of 36 months is nice actually but I still don’t see the part where it’s a 2 year or 3 year option. The part I’m really complaining about is the length of time they are paying your promotional credit. The industry in my opinion has gotten back to where it used to be except now, folks are paying full price for their phones and their plans are nearly the same high prices it used to be with all the yearly increases.

          I guess the 3 year plans DO make more sense with folks like me because I refuse to switch to any other carrier because the prices to switch are so much higher now then when I first switched to tmobile.

        • OZ

          Credit will take 36 months. You can pay offothe phone earlier.

      • Mickey T

        Wait? So you can choose 24 months over 36 months for your bill credits? I didn’t see that part. It’s not the length of the EIP but the fact the credits are spread over that time. It’s a questionable tactic to keep folks on their Network longer. If they gave the option to spread the bill credits over 24 or 36 then yeah it’s fine but I don’t see that option.

      • Ryan M.

        Exactly. And I feel by default the trade-in value is actually a carrot to stick around by design. Because getting well over $150 from a carrier for an iPhone 6s… that’s insane.

      • Phil

        36 month low payment is perfect for Jump1 customers.
        If I’m not digging XR after couple weeks etc I can Jump into new device no 50% payoff needed.

    • Mark Kendrick

      With the arrival of $1,500 phones it makes sense to some extent

      • Acdc1a

        Sure, but when you’re trading your phone in for 36 bill credits, you’ve just committed yourself to T-Mobile for 3 years. Not cool at all.

        • Mark Kendrick

          I’m not big on payment plans myself, I only sign up for them if it get’s me gift card or something. I hate bill credits and would rather sell my phone on eBay.

        • keepitreal25

          Good luck selling a base model iPhone 7 for 390 dollars

        • Mark Kendrick

          Thanks for the info, who’s selling an iPhone 7 anyway? I think I missed your joke

        • Kenneth Warner

          Not really one could pay the phone off early then there not locked in at all

        • keepitreal25

          Poster below is correct your not locked into anything that has no prepayment penalty nor the loss of the monthly credit , now no company is going to double your trade value on a device for you just to cancel all together that’s bad business .

    • Koolme666

      Pretty sure this doesn’t matter, they’re just giving you more time frame to pay it off for a lesser monthly payment however I like the higher monthly cost of the phone that way it gets paid off faster. Or you can just pay it off whenever u want

      • Acdc1a

        It does matter. The trade-ins are now monthly credits for 36 months, thus creating a 3 year contract…otherwise you turned your phone in for FAR less than resale value. No defense of this move…NONE!

        • Koolme666

          I don’t do trade ins..

        • keepitreal25

          How is that creating a contract if you don’t plan on leaving and can still jump to another phone and keep your bill credits . eips have always been at least 24 months so that logic makes no sense especially when you can pay them off w no penalty

    • 84 month plans soon, buy one get a truck free (with an added line)

    • warpwiz

      I bought a Note9 on 36 months. I will do incantations over the battery in hopes it doesn’t croak early!

  • They_Call_Me_Bruce

    I just asked this question on a prior story, but since this is newer I’ll have a better chance of getting an answer.

    Is TMobile still doing the LG G7 BOGO, and if so, can you flip one for 360 off another phone, specifically the soon to be announced OnePlus. Will I lose one of the monthly credits (the one for 250 off by trading in a Galaxy 6, or the one for the free LG L7). Thanks

    • pseudoswede

      No. The LG BOGO ended on August 31.

      • They_Call_Me_Bruce

        Oh well. Thanks.

  • Phil

    Hmm I’m going for it with 36 month payment.
    Spoke with couple T-store reps finding
    my Original Jump1 will remain in tact.
    That being case I’m able to ugrade device twice yearly no 50% payoff needed.
    Keeping Jump1 in place is tricky,
    I’ve found purchasing online eliminates Jump1 so in-store purchase will be needed.

    Happy Day Update:
    Just did pre-order over phone Jump1 remains in tact.
    The very nice rep noted my account for call back just in case something goes wrong fix will be made.
    T-Mobile Rocks!

    • keepitreal25

      Purchasing online should never affect your insurance feature unless you change something yourself

      • Phil

        It shouldn’t yet happens to so many.
        Jumping online from my current device to XR wasn’t problem but stated 50% payoff would be needed there after.
        Completing XR transaction online would of put me on evil Jump2.0.

        • keepitreal25

          That stinks

  • OZ

    Regarding 36 month EIP and $390 36 monthly credits. This is what I got from T-Mobile Customer service: “Great question! With the trade-in promotion that provides promotional monthly credits across the 36 month period, it’s important that we place the order on the monthly installment plan. Once you’ve seen the first promotion credit apply, you could pay the phone off early in full if you’d like. Your promotional credits would continue on their 36 month plan so you’d gradually get the full value of the offer. :)”

    I ordered 2 phones, and I’ll be paying them off early.

    • keepitreal25

      Smart man we got 390 as well and you’ve always been able to keep any trade in credits even if paid off early , that information is only given out when asked, even if you jumped to a new phone your eip bill credits wouldn’t expire , they know customers with either version of jump aren’t likely to keep the same phone for 36 months so you can still upgrade and get your whole 390!

      • UltramanX

        I also pre-ordered 3 iPhones, the process shows that you will get a discount of $390 spread into 36 months, but when I got the document to print the shipping label for the traded-in phone, for some reason it shows Accepted value of $121 for the device.

        I chatted with a Tmo agent and he assured me I will get full $390 once they get back the phone…. wait and see….

        • Alex G.

          You will. That happened to me in the past. The $121 is the trade-in value T-Mobile would’ve taken under normal circumstances. You’ll still get the promotional value. Just keep an eye out for the monthly credit when it starts kicking in.

  • Jim Mill

    Does anyone now does apple ever ship early

    • GinaDee

      I don’t know about Apple but T-Mobile has been known for shipping a day or two beforehand so that there pre-ordered devices are delivered on or just before the actual retail launch date.

      • Jim Mill

        Thx first iphone I’ve had 15 androids so nervous

        • Phil

          Ha same here.
          I’ve been using Android from the beginning Xr will be first Iphone.
          I’m trying to stay positive.

          Only down side I’ve come across so far is fast charging.
          In order to use feature new cable & fast charger = adtional 50.00 – 70.00 will need to be spent.
          That being the case , I will stick with inbox charger for few months get feel for device before investing.
          If experiment doesn’t work out , that 50:00-70.00 will go into Jump1.0 GS9 upgrade.

        • Jim Mill

          I’ve already decided I’m on jump on demand so in 30 days if I don’t like it I can go to a new one so if I don’t like it I’ll get the 1 + 6 t but yeah I’m a little nervous I think I can get used to it but we’ll see if it’s worth it if it’s not worth it on my switch but the phone does look nice

        • Phil

          Right on I look @ it this way ,
          It was time for change.
          Apple Smooth simple OS with sure updates & strong app support.
          XR appears to have excellent build quality & best battery life in X series.
          How could the above go wrong lol.

          Anyway I will give it to go bail if needed during holiday season Galaxy price drop.
          It’s a win win on Jump1.0

        • Jim Mill

          Think we will get them tommorw

        • Phil

          Yep confirmed tomorrow delivery.
          I’m looking forward to this test drive with only worrie being signel strength.
          After few days of research I’ve found many XS & XS Max owners complaining about weak signel drop calls.
          I’m hopeful XR doesn’t have same issue.

        • Jim Mill

          Should be different different body

        • Jim Mill

          I got my arrival date of tomorrow

        • Phil

          After lots of research my go for it has gone bad before device in hand.
          Come to find out Apple did away with battery % view in status bar.

          With Android – wake device quick glance at %.
          With iphone – wake device , swipe right corner down % will be displayed.
          So basically extra step 2nd hand needed to check battery % status on IOS.

          That may be petty to some but not for me.
          I wake device frequently checking time of day battery life.
          IOS has complicated simple one hand task I’ve been using since Blackberry 8330 days lol.

          Anyway , my test drive won’t last long will be eating restocking fee

    • Phil

      Well my credit card was just charged shipping should be taking place with 10/24 arrival.

      • Jim Mill

        That would be cool

      • Jim Mill

        I hope I r right

        • Phil

          Well charge took place 10/23 @1:00 AM.
          Once charge is made item ships so said store rep & CSR when placing order.
          That doesn’t seem to be case ,
          I’ve received no tracking email & account transaction is still processing so it’s highly doubtful item will be received today.

        • Daniel Cross

          This doesn’t make any sense. I just talked with rep. Shipping date says 10/26. This means it will be shipped on 10/26 , not arrive on 10/26. So what was the point of pre-order then if I won’t get it untill after the launch date. I ordered at 12:01 on 10/19.

        • Phil

          Estimated Shipping date 10/26.
          That means it could ship early, late or on day. 10/26.

        • Daniel Cross

          Hopefully it ships early. I was so looking forward to getting on 10/26.

        • Phil

          I have tracking number.
          Just checked MyUPS account finding UPS tracking label generated.
          I’m guessing its in box ready to ship.

        • steven berson

          Just got a text saying my order was shipped. They used Next day air so looks like its getting here tomorrow.

        • Phil

          Same here

        • Daniel Cross

          same here

        • steven berson

          I hope as well! However it doesn’t look like it will. I always preorder and get the tracking # 2 days ahead of the launch date and usually get it delivered 1 day before or on the launch date. Still nothing from T-mobile, half the day is gone. At this rate most likely get delivered Saturday.

    • Antoine M.

      So they’re really gonna make us wait until Friday?

      • Jim Mill

        Bummer

      • UltramanX

        Looks like it. My card was charged on Sunday and no sign of shipping. Which mean if they start shipping on Friday, phones won’t arrive until next week.

      • UltramanX

        Wooohooo. I just got my 3 tracking numbers for delivery tomorrow!!!!

  • Jim Mill

    I just got an update mine says out for delivery so I should be getting it in a few hours
