Did you purchase your current iPhone 6 for $15 per month through T-Mobile’s JUMP! On Demand trade-in program? If so, you’ll be automatically eligible for a free upgrade to Apple’s ‘iPhone 6s’—or whatever it will be called when it’s released this fall.
In addition to permitting its Simple Choice customers to listen to their favorite songs on Apple Music without taking a byte of their monthly 4G LTE data, carrier T-Mobile today announced that iPhone customers participating in said upgrade plan will be able to get their hands on Apple’s next-gen handset without paying anything to upgrade or increasing their monthly JUMP! On Demand payment.
The promotional offer applies automatically to everyone who already got an iPhone for $15 per month via the JUMP! On Demand trade-in program. Qualifying credit is required.
“When customers are ready to upgrade, they walk into a store, hand over their existing iPhone 6 or 6 Plus and walk out with an upgraded iPhone – nothing out of pocket and no increase in monthly cost,” said the carrier.
If your monthly iPhone payment is already less than $15, you won’t be eligible for this offer nor will you get to keep your current monthly price when you upgrade.
T-Mobile lays out who precisely is eligible to take advantage of this offer:
- This offer applies to anyone who has purchased iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus with JUMP! On Demand at the promotional rate.
- Customers with qualifying credit can get a new phone with JUMP! On Demand for zero upfront cost and they can upgrade to another smartphone whenever they want, up to three times per year, with zero cost at upgrade and zero fees.
- Customers without qualifying credit can get a new phone with JUMP! On Demand with an upfront payment similar to regular financing.
And if you choose to upgrade to an ‘iPhone 6s’ or ‘iPhone 6s Plus’ within the first 48 hours of their availability, T-Mobile will treat you to priority shipping “So you’ll be among the very first to get your brand new phone when we have inventory.” Here’s T-Mobile CEO John Legere delivering the announcement in his trademark presentation style.
If you aren’t a T-Mobile customer but plan on becoming one and want to be eligible for the free iPhone 6s upgrade, you’ll need to buy your iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus before Labor Day, meaning through September 8, in order to lock in the $15 per month JUMP! On Demand price for the next iPhone model.
“Take in your current device and get an amazing price on iPhone 6 now, then upgrade to a new comparable iPhone later this year for the same price,” reads the blurb.
The iPhone offer details are available on T-Mobile’s website.
This promotion is in-store only.
Apple usually refreshes iPhones in September and this year should be no different so we’re assuming the next iPhone will be launching in the usual fall timeframe.
Today’s iPhone 6s upgrade offer, along with the addition to Apple Music to Music Freedom, marks the last of T-Mobile’s Un-Carrier Amped moves this summer.
