If you haven’t already pre-ordered your iPhone 8, then you may want to look to T-Mobile for your next iPhone 8 order. Whether you’re looking to switch to the carrier or looking to upgrade your current device, looking to T-Mobile might not be a bad idea. Even though the carrier is offering a deal, it’s slightly complicated. We’ll do our best to explain.
All in all, there are two deals going on with T-Mobile. The first deal is a simple trade-in promo for the iPhone 8 where you trade in any qualifying device (any iPhone newer than iPhone 6) and you will get a $300 trade-in credit towards your new iPhone 8. This does come in form of bill credits on your monthly bill. This balance is applied over the span of two years.
Now for the second T-Mobile’s promotion, this doesn’t take place for another year, but is a good offer. If you were to buy an iPhone 8 on the Equipment Installment Plan right now, you will be able to upgrade to next year’s iPhone for free when it comes out. The carrier will offer you free upgrades to the 2018 iPhone when you trade-in your iPhone X, 8, or 8 Plus when it’s paid over 50%.
The second deal is definitely more enticing because right now, this year’s iPhones are not offering any integration for T-Mobile’s 600MHz spectrum. Next year, it’s highly likely that Apple will integrate T-Mobile’s new spectrum into the iPhone, and T-Mobile offering this free upgrade might be worth it.
