Now that Apple has officially unveiled its newest flagship device, the iPhone 6s, we can now expect wireless carriers operating in the United States to start bombarding all kinds of offers targeted to those who are planning to buy the handset. Naturally, T-Mobile (who else?) is one of those who are already offering fresh new deals. As a matter of fact, John Legere, the outspoken chief executive officer of T-Mobile, has already revealed that wireless carrier is not only announcing a limited time iPhone lease offer, but it is also launching a brand new Lifetime Coverage Guarantee.
Customers will be able to grab both the iPhone 6s and the iPhone 6s Plus via T-Mobile’s Jump! On Demand plans for $0 down, with 18 equal regular payments monthly, starting at just $20 a month for the 16 gigabyte edition of the iPhone 6s and $24 monthly for the 16 gigabyte edition of the iPhone 6s Plus.
Customers can also choose to upgrade to a new handset at any time -- they just need to give back their smartphone and then sign up for a new 18 months. As for those who would rather keep their iPhones, they can decide to pay the Purchase Option Price when their 18 month contract is finished and the handset will be theirs. Or, they can opt to give back their leased handset without having to pay anything more.
Considering that customers can get the 16 gigabyte edition of the iPhone 6s at $20 a month or the 16 gigabyte edition of the iPhone 6s Plus at $24 a month under Jump! On Demand plans, this is a pretty good offer for the most talked about smartphones in the market. Those who avail of this deal, especially those who decide to buy out their iPhones after a period of 18 months, will enjoy more savings compared to availing of Apple’s own iPhone upgrade program.
Take the 16 gigabyte edition of the iPhone 6s, for instance -- users can buy this from Apple for $32.41 a month over a period of 24 months, or $777.84 in total. However, if one purchases the same handset via Jump! On Demand plans, it will cost $524 in total (that is 18 monthly payments, together with the $164 Purchase Option Price), which is obviously cheaper by over $250, plus one can save $125 compared to the iPhone 6s’ upfront retail price. Alas, as mentioned earlier, the $20 a month deal is only a limited time offer, and T-Mobile has not revealed how long it will be made available. Note that preorders for the two new iPhones will start at 12:01 AM on September 12th.
As for the Lifetime Coverage Guarantee, it is targeted to new customers who are buying the iPhone 6s or the iPhone 6s Plus. If they purchase either device via Jump! On Demand and continue to use the handset on T-Mobile’s network, they can back out at any time if they feel they are not happy with cell phone coverage the wireless carrier is providing. Customers can choose to terminate their service within the first 30 days and give back their handset, and then get a full refund for all phone payments and service fees.
For those who want to keep their phones but are still thinking of terminating their plan within the first 30 days, they can simply fully pay the first bill and T-Mobile will unlock their iPhone and let them continue financing the handset via a regular installment plan. Customers can even bring their iPhone elsewhere, provided that they keep paying it off over 24 months on a standard equipment installment plan. Beyond the first 30 days, they can still terminate their plan, have their handsets unlocked for free, and continue paying off their devices via installments, but they will also have their last month’s cell coverage completely refunded. The only catch is that by terminating their service and keeping their iPhones, they will be relegated to low Jump! On Demand pricing, which means for the 16 gigabyte iPhone 6s, the customer’s monthly payment will increase from $20 to $27.08 a month, over a longer repayment time.
