  • Is it true that the T-Mobile contract free iPhones from Apple come unlocked? If so, I think I will pre-order one.
  • They did last year.. They use the unlocked model. Got my box out, exact same one.
  • Plain and simple nothing beats Tmobile period they are the carrier game today regardless of the handsets you buy either android or apple. From my Galaxy Note 3 On T-Mobile via iMore App
  • T-Mobile will unlock the phone after it is paid in full. You will have to have a justification for unlocking it (I said I was giving it to my brother on another carrier). They will then send instructions to unlock it. I just did it for my 5S
  • Good to know, thanks. I bought a 6+ from Apple contract free T-Mobile. Paid upfront so it's paid for in full. I live international but I use a T-Mobile SIM card while I'm in America so I hope they unlock it for me.
  • The penny per month additional charge for the larger capacity Plus models is strange.
  • Was thinking the same. Posted via the iMore App for Android
  • The 128GB 6 Plus will cost $950? I'd rather just pay the additional $300 up front.
  • Yep
  • It's strategy and smart on T-Mobile part. They about to become the 3th major carrier in the US. Taking out Sprint. The plans is working.
  • Any info on new lower pricing for the 5s? Posted via the iMore App for Android
  • I'm pretty strongly considering finally leaving AT&T for T-Mobile.
  • If T-Mobile works in your area then its a no brainer, especially now that they offer the personal cell spot thingy that gives you service at home (for those who can't get service at home)
  • So do these prices add up to the same prices as at the apple store or are they cheaper? And will t mobile stores have some iphones in store Friday the 19th? Sent from the iMore App
  • I'm pretty sure it adds up to the same price. It's crazy that getting 2 new iphone 6+ is going to save me money in the long run than sticking with att. I'm currently on an unlimited plan that gets throttled every month. It's costing me 103 bucks a month. My wife is on a verizon family plan with her mom that costs 190 for both and they have 3 gb to share. After doing the test drive I'm decided on t-mobile hands down
  • It is generally pretty close. I think with my 5s I had calculated it to being like $20 bucks total interest or something like that. Very reasonable. They are pretty much counting on the people on the JUMP! plan absorbing most of the cost of floating the devices.
  • Been with That-Mobile for 5 months great service. Will be pre-ordering 6+ 64GB for $99.00 decent price for the GB 32GB free. Sent from the iMore App
  • I will be getting the iPhone 6 Plus 128GB. Yeaaaa Magenta Rocks.
  • T-Mobile: $80 unlimited everything + $27.08 iPhone 6
    Sprint: $50 unlimited everything + $20 iPhone 6 Seeing that the services are both solid in my area, this is a no brainer. I was disappointed that T-Mobile didn't price more aggressively once Sprint's plan was announced.
  • I have heard to many horror stories about Sprint I don't think I will ever go back to them
  • I'm leaving ATT for tmobile. Sprint is the worst in my area and tmobile is paying my ETF.
  • Doesn't seem logical AT ALL. Maybe i'm misunderstanding but but it seems if i want a 64gb iphone 6, my choice is either:
    -$299 up front, or
    -$99 downpayment + a whopping $649.92 ($27.08 per month for 24 months). total payment $748.92. That seems crazy to me. I'd understand if it was the $299 spread over 24 months, or even 12 but that seems like a suckers bet. I'd just wait til i could afford the $299 up front.
  • The 64GB phone actually costs $749 unsubsidized. So no, $748.92 over 2 years is not crazy.
  • I don't care what it is unsubsidized. I'm not buying an unsubsidized phone. $299 on contract plus, plus your monthly fees is much cheaper than
    $749 for two years for the exact same phone. So T-mobile has NO subsidized phones anymore? If so Well fuck that just ruined that for me. I was gonna switch to them. Had them years ago. But I'm not paying 3 times the cost for the same phone. That's only useful if i plan to leave and go to At&T later which i'm never gonna do. Seems crazy and senseless unless you're planning on jumping carrier every other month or have money to burn. I've never been either. Yeah crazy.
  • you don't seem to understand how phone subsidies work.
  • And really, this is just another contract because you still owe the balance. You have to pay the $27 for two years and if you leave t-mobile you owe the balance. It's just another contract. You save more money paying $299 up front. Financially this not smart. This only benefits you if the service is bad and you want to leave in which case you shouldn't have picked them in the first place. If you're, like me going to stay, you save hundreds of dollars buying on contract. Regardless, i didn't know T-mobile had gone this route. too bad.
  • If you buy the phone outright, and keep it longer than two years, you're saving money on tmobile... If you pay for it outright and sell it after a year, you will get more money for it... Which part don't you understand? Posted via iMore App
  • The plans are cheaper now because the device cost isn't directly included in the plan. You are paying the full retail price either way. And it is like this on every carrier so don't not get T-Mobile. They are still in most cases the best deal of all carriers in the US.
  • The plan isn't cheaper. I'm paying around $55 bucks for service already. Plus plans vary according to carrier. Verizon and AT&T are always is more expensive monthly than Sprint. It's better to do the calculation of costs of hardware apart from the costs of services as it changes but ok. Let me put it this way, to get the same service from sprint you'll pay hundreds of dollars less over two years. Take comparable plans:
    say sprint it's like $299, up front plus around $50 per month charges. That's it. Total=$1499 in two years. With t-mobile you pay $99 deposit, $27 per month over 24 months, plus your roughly $50 per month service charges. Total=$1949 plus tax in two years. I will add also that the T-mobile plan that's comparable to me data wise to the sprint plan is actually $60 per month, because $50 only gives you 1GB of data, so really you're more likely to pay $2189 plus tax in two years. Either way, T-mobile is getting much more of your money. roughly $450-$690 more expensive with tmobile depending on the plan you're picking.
  • Yes, that particular Sprint plan is cheaper. But it's Sprint. 'Nuff said. And really I was speaking in general to older, traditional 2 year contracts where you were paying near $100/month. That included the device subsidy in the monthly cost. Essentially, now these early upgrade plans just shift the way you see the costs. Essentially the device payments are interest free loans. If you want truly cheap go for the T-Mobile $30 prepaid plan and pay your device upfront. $749 + 24(30) = $1469 over 2 years. Look into it man.
  • I have an old plan and i'm not paying $100 a month. The most i paid was $65 which got reduced by ten bucks. Never have for a smartphone. And i've had sprint. Where i live it's a toss up between sprint and tmobile. And in my area Verizon drops lte and 3g because of mountains and ocean. but truth is Sprint and Tmobile are the two closest competitors. Point is without service, you pay hundreds more on tmobile regardless of carrier. As for prepaid don't have $749 to fork over up front for a phone. Also i don't see a $30 prepaid on their site. I only see a $50 prepaid and the 50 you only get 1gb of data per month. not acceptable. I use at twice that every month. which is also the problem with other $50 tmobile plans. 1gb of data isn't enough. But those seem pointless because There is a $45 dollar prepaid plan with 2 gbs of data listed on the same page of tmobile. Thats' $1829. That's not a better deal if i just keep my same plan. Regardless you can do the math anyway and no matter what subsidized phones are coming out cheaper.
  • It's on this page. It is not advertised at all. http://prepaid-phones.t-mobile.com/prepaid-plans
  • You just don't get it, when you have paid the phone off, your bill drops down to 50 dollars Posted via the iMore App for Android
  • I would but when I signed up for TMobile I didn't get Jump so I'm stuck with my 5S. Sent from the iMore App
  • You can sign up for jump as soon as you pay off your device... I did a couple of months after I bought a G2 Posted via iMore App
