T-Mobile’s CEO John Legere has just announced on Twitter that the carrier will be offering the iPhone 6s for as low as $5 per month through its JUMP! On Demand program when you trade-in your iPhone 6, and $10 per month when you trade-in your iPhone 5s.
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!

The monthly payment with the trade-in will range from $5 to $15 per month depending on the model. It is not clear what would be the monthly payment for the iPhone 6s Plus. T-Mobile customers who have already pre-ordered an iPhone 6s or iPhone 6s Plus can opt for this deal.
If you do not want to trade-in your current iPhone, then you can get a 16GB iPhone 6s for $20 per month for 18 months with zero upfront payment. You can pay an additional $164 to keep the iPhone, which works out to $524, a savings of $125.
iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus support LTE band 12 on the 700MHz spectrum, which is used by T-Mobile to offer Extended Range LTE across the U.S. T-Mobile Extended Range LTE extends network’s LTE signal twice as far from its cellular towers and works four times better in buildings. T-Mobile Extended Range LTE is available in 170 cities.
T-Mobile has issued a press release with more details about the iPhone 6s trade-in offer. The offer is also available on the iPhone 6s Plus. As you can see in the table below, you have to make an upfront payment for 64 GB and 128GB models of iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus.
T-Mobile’s new pricing builds on the Un-carrier’s straightforward $20 a month for a new iPhone 6s 16GB with JUMP! On Demand without a trade-in. Now, your trade-in value for any old phone you own brings that monthly price down even more – $10 a month with trade-in of iPhone 5s, Note 5 or Note edge and $15 a month with trade-in of almost any other phone you own like iPhone 5, iPhone 5c, Galaxy S4, Galaxy S3, HTC M8 and Motorola Droid Turbo. At T-Mobile, you’ll get what your trade in is worth.
How are you planning to buy your iPhone 6s or iPhone 6s Plus?
