As you may already know, Apple’s upcoming iPhone X is nowhere near cheap and is likely not affordable to the working class who might really want to own the smartphone. The smartphone will become available for pre-ordering starting on Friday, October 27, while the iPhone X will fill up the shelves on Nov. 3. That being said, if you really want to own Apple’s new phone, you must have at least wondered what your choices were with regard to available payment plans. With that in mind, we compiled the best iPhone X deals from U.S. carriers that you might be interested in checking out. The start time of the pre-orders will be at 12:01 a.m. Pacific / 3:01 a.m. Eastern time. Given that the supply of the arriving iPhone X is limited due to various reasons, including the development of the TrueDepth camera taking longer than expected, it’s recommended to hurry up and get your iPhone X before the smartphone runs out of stock.
Best iPhone X Deals
Fortunately, most of the U.S. carriers have revealed the trade-in deals for Apple’s new flagship, which are so good that you will almost forget that the iPhone X is the most expensive Apple’s smartphone ever. Continue reading this article to find out more about the best iPhone X deals to check out ahead of pre-orders.
Basically, to qualify for the promotion, you will need to trade in your not-too-old smartphone that is still good looking and working properly as well. Most likely to qualify, you would trade in your iPhone 6 or 7 models, Samsung, Moto, LG, or Google Pixel smartphone. Here are some of the best iPhone X deals provided by the carriers.
T-Mobile is known for great trade-in deals either when it comes to the Google Pixel 2 smartphone deals and iPhones. The telecommunications company is offering up to a $300 discount on the iPhone X. However, the amount of the discount you get depends on the state and the current value of your current iPhone.
What remains of that amount will be applied through monthly payments discounts, while customers can choose between two financing plans: The Equipment Installment Plan, signed on a 24-month contract or the 18-month Jump! On Demand plan. It is worth mentioning that you will need to already have a T-mobile contract to apply for the second payment plan.
If you opt for the Equipment Installment Plan, you can get the 64GB iPhone X with $279.99 down, and a $30 payment per month. The 256GB iPhone X also comes with a $30 monthly plan. However it requires a larger deposit of $429.99.
If you opt for the Jump! On Demand payment plan, you can get a 64GB iPhone X with $0 deposit, but $41.56 on monthly payments. Choosing the 256GB smartphone requires $429.99 down and $24 per month.
In case you decide to trade in your current iPhone 6s or iPhone 7 at Verizon, you can also qualify for the $300 off promotion. However, to be eligible for iPhone X deals, you need to participate in one of Verizon’s unlimited plans. Unlike T-mobile, the credit will be paid out over a 24-month financing plan.
That being said, both storage options come with a $0 down. However, the 64GB iPhone X will cost you $41.66 per month, while the 256GB iPhone X is slightly pricier at $47.91. Both options require a 24-month payment plan. Keep in mind that there will also be a one-time $30 activation key when you trade-in your existing smartphone and sign the contract.
Apparently, the U.S. carrier Sprint, offers the best iPhone X deals out of all the major carriers. You will be able to save $350 on the iPhone X through the carrier’s lease plan called Sprint Flex Lease. However, only for a limited time.
Once you trade in your qualifying smartphone for the promotion, you will pay $22.22 per month for 18 months for the 64GB option. In case you don’t have a smartphone that qualifies for the promotion, Sprint charges you $41.67 over the course of 18 months with $0 down.
You can still opt to miss the pre-ordering and head to Apple stores once the iPhone X hits the shelves on Nov. 3. Still, it is important to note that the demand for the iPhone X is huge and there is a chance the smartphone will run out of stock during the pre-orders. It is recommended that you camp in front of the store the night before, or take a day off work. Apple even stated in their press release that customers are “encouraged to arrive early.”
Other U.S. carriers, such as AT&T, haven’t announced any plans regarding their iPhone X payment plan. Still, we are looking forward to the announcement, and we will give further updates when there is more information.
