Sprint has announced that starting on September 25th qualified customers who trade in a smartphone can get an iPhone 6s for $15/month and the iPhone 6s Plus for $19/month with $0 down. Those who don't have a smartphone to trade in will have to pay $22/month and $26/month for the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus respectively. Furthermore, this deal includes Sprint's iPhone Forever program which allows customers to get a new iPhone every year for life.
Sprint CEO Marcelo Claure had the following to say about the iPhone Forever program:
“iPhone Forever is Sprint’s latest and greatest option to get these amazing new iPhones. It is a revolutionary program that fundamentally changes the way our customers will get Apple’s most iconic devices. For a very low monthly payment, new or existing Sprint Customers will be able to get iPhone 6s from Sprint and be guaranteed to get a new iPhone every year. I cannot imagine a better way to have the latest iPhone."
Those of you interested in the iPhone Forever program can pre-order one now. The phones will be available for purchase in store or online on September 25th, and Sprint stores will open at 8:00 am local time that day to handle all orders. For those of you who don't want to wait in a line to make your purchase and need help learning a new device, Sprint offers a service in select markets that is unique in the industry. The wireless provider runs a free program called Direct 2 You where customers can request to have a wireless expert bring the device to them and set it up. With Direct 2 You, a wireless expert will transfer all your content from your old device to your new one as well as demonstrate to you all the features provided by the new device.
