The Best Buy One Plan allows customers to lease a 16GB iPhone 6 starting for $65 per month with unlimited talk, text and data.

Additionally, anyone who starts a new line of service before March 28 will snag a $200 Best Buy gift card to sweeten the deal. Finally, Sprint says that certain, well-qualified customers will be able to take advantage of the deal with no money down and no sales tax at the time of purchase.
This Best Buy exclusive plan follows up on recent offers by Sprint to cut AT&T and Verizon customers' bills in half, as well as a $200 guarantee on smartphone trade-ins for customers switch from T-Mobile.

If it was a 64GB, maybe Posted via the Android iMore App!
The article states other models are available. From what has been told to Best Buy employees it's only an extra $5 to go from a 16gb to a 64gb
But, it's still leasing the phone... Posted via the Android iMore App!
Leasing, buying... Who cares... It's sprint!!! Sent from the iMore App
Sadly I think that is the real issue here. Financially I think this is compelling. But what's the point of unlimited data if (at least where I live) there's hardly any data coverage? Sent from the iMore App
It's all a matter of location. Been with Sprint 13 years and here in NYC their coverage is fine. I also tend to travel to other metro area, Los Angeles, Chicago, Philadelphia, Washington, D.C . and they've got that covered as well. Never had a problem.
Huh, am I missing something here? I manage a Target Mobile and we've had a $50 per month for iPhone 6 and $60 for the older iPhone models. Best Buy seems to be playing mind games again with it's customers!
Does that include cell service? This appears to. Sent from the iMore App
