Do you remember when carriers used to pay for part of your new phone—giving you that $649 iPhone for just $199? It turns out it's not completely over, after all. Today T-Mobile's CEO announced that it would offer the iPhone 6s 16 GB devices for just $5 per month for customers who trade in a iPhone 6, 6 Plus, Galaxy S6 Edge, or Note 5; a $10 monthly price for iPhone 5s and Galaxy S5 trade-ins; and $15 for older smartphones like the iPhone 5 or 5c. If you don't have a phone to trade in, the monthly payment is $20.


According to the new report, If customers stay 18 months with T-Mobile, they'll have the option to keep them for $125 off the retail price, minus what they've already paid. That's nowhere near the $450 discount consumers used to get on new phones by agreeing to a two-year contract, but it's better than no discount, which is what the other carriers are giving. Verizon and AT&T may offer financing so you don't have to pay for the whole cost of a new phone at once, but their financing options don't save you any money off the $649 price of an iPhone 6s.
