The preorder iPhone 14 deals for the various wireless providers are rolling out and big savings to bring in new subscribers and for customer upgrades seem to be common themes. The iPhone 14 is an eSIM only device, limiting where you can find some prepaid and MVNO provider preorder deals. Not all providers support eSIM yet.
Red Pocket quietly announced eSim support back in May of this year, as reported by Best MVNO. But, there is nothing quiet about the $300 off iPhone 14 preorder deal the multi-carrier MVNO has announced. The banner on Red Pocket’s website boldly displays the iPhone 14 Pro.
Xfinity Mobile also announced their own deal for $400 off any iPhone 14 series with 0% APR financing. Xfinity is running the $400 off through October 6, 2022. Both Red Pocket and Xfinity are offering free shipping with pre-orders.

The details of the Xfinity pre-order deal of $400 off does come with a more restrictive set of terms and conditions. A 24 month contract with financing is required, but 0% APR is offered for buyers.
