If you don't have the cash in your budget to buy a new smartphone outright, this week's deals on the Apple iPhone 11 and iPhone 7 from Sprint and Verizon could get your hands on the device of your choice for free.

Sprint's offer on the iPhone 11 is the most enticing, though it also has a few more stipulations to it. You can score the iPhone 11 for free with an 18-month Flex Lease when you trade-in an eligible device in any condition and add a line to your account. This deal is valid for both new subscribers and those who are already Sprint customers. Eligible trade-in devices include everything from recent iPhone models to various Samsung Galaxy phones and more.

Sprint is offering Apple's iPhone 11 for free with an 18-month Flex Lease when you trade-in an eligible device in any condition and add a new line. You'll see the $29.17 monthly credit applied to your bill within two months.

Sprint's Flex Leases are perfect for those who don't want to shell out the full cost of a new smartphone every few years; once 18 months of lease payments have passed, you'll have the option of either returning your iPhone 11 for a new device or paying off its remaining balance to make it yours officially. You should see a discount of $29.17 applied to your bill within two months to bring its cost down to $0 each month.

Meanwhile, Verizon has the Apple iPhone 7 available for free this week as well, and rather than having to trade-in a phone or lease the device, you only need to add a line to your account to be eligible for this offer.

Simply add the 32GB iPhone 7 to your cart with either monthly payments or at full retail price while adding a line and you'll see the $350 discount applied to your bill over the course of 24 months. The monthly payment option would be best for most people as it brings the iPhone 7's cost to $0 per month.
