Sprint and T-Mobile have sparred quite a bit in the past, and most recently the two carriers have been going back and for on iPhone 6s pricing. First T-Mobile announced iPhone 6s pricing of $20 per month, then Sprint countered with a $15 per month offer, and now T-Mo has fired back.
T-Mobile CEO John Legere has announced that starting Friday, September 25, you’ll be able to get an iPhone 6s on JUMP! On Demand for as low as $5 per month after trading in an iPhone 6. If you’ve got an iPhone 5s to trade in, your price on an iPhone 6s will be $10 per month. And for other phone trade-ins, you’ll be able to get Apple’s new phone for $15 per month.
6/ YES – you read it right! Trade-in an iPhone6 & get a new #iPhone6s for $5/mth or trade-in your iPhone5s & get a new one for $10/mth!

Legere also confirmed that if you’ve already pre-ordered an iPhone 6s, you can still take advantage of this trade-in deal. Anyone who gets a $5, $10, or $15 per month iPhone 6s is also eligible for the Lifetime Coverage Guarantee. That program will give you a full refund on your iPhone 6s if you return it within the first 30 days of use. If you return it after 30 days, you’ll get a refund for up to one month of service and T-Mobile will unlock your phone for use on another carrier.
Some of the details of T-Mobile’s iPhone 6s trade-in offer are still unknown, but Legere says that T-Mo will officially announce the deal tomorrow, so we’ll learn more then.
