Apple iPhone 6/Plus carrier and retail pricing on Verizon, AT&T, Sprint and T-Mobile

Apple iPhone 6/Plus carrier and retail pricing on Verizon, AT&T, Sprint and T-Mobile
Apple isn't straying away from its traditional pricing with the iPhone 6 on a two-year contract, be it on Verizon, AT&T, Sprint or T-Mobile. They will have it up for preorder on September 12th for $199 with subsidies.

The kicker, however, is that this is the starting price for a 16 GB iPhone 6 model, while for a Benjamin more you get not a 32 GB, but a 64 GB iPhone 6 on contract - certainly a welcome change. Things start to get hairy from here, as the new iPhones also have a 128 GB for the first time, which will run you $299 with carrier subsidies for the 4.7" one. 

The iPhone 6 Plus phablet pricing starts from $299 on all major carriers, and takes it from there all the way up to $499 with a two-year contract, which must be the most expensive contract price for a phone ever. If you want the handsets without carrier shackles, tough luck, as only T-Mobile's prepaid pricing is listed for now, and it will start you off at the usual $649 for a 16 GB iPhone 6.  The 5.5" juggernaut will cost you at least $749 in the land of John Legere, but, hey, T-Mobile will give you support for both Wi-Fi calling, and Voice-over-LTE, so you can take full advantage of those two new iPhone features.

$650 for the 16GB version? That's less storage for the price compared to other flagships. Also, the 128GB 4.7" version is $399 on contract and 64GB coming in at $299 (not too bad I guess). =/

Less than other flagships? Like what? Also, it's $750 to $950 for the 5.5" iPhone unlocked. That is a ton of money.

No need to pre order, just camp out.

Or you can pre-order and not camp out, saving time and the unnecessary long line.

No need to camp out, just wait until their available. 16GB is not enough and seeing that the iPhone 6 plus is $400 (on contract) for the next size up it's a tough pill to swallow. To me it's not worth it because you got great phones like the Motorola X at $100, the Note 4 at $100 cheaper with sd card support and the unannounced Nexus which will be around the same price off contract. Releasing that big iPhone smells like desperation.

What if the store that you are camping out at is out of stock of the phone you want? Then, you are kind of screwed. Meanwhile, those who pre-ordered are sitting at home with all of the comforts of home, waiting for the FedEx truck to arrive. Nothing like certainty.

"$949.00 for iPhone 6 Plus 128gb contract-free on T-Mobile." A lot of people would rather get a basic laptop and a really good Android phone for the same money. Or just save $600+. Apple is redefining the term "ripoff".

Did you see the Keynote? They had the nerve to say their "clever engineers" "invented" it. INSANE. These people are nuts.

Not nuts. Just full of themselves.

"They had the nerve to say their "clever engineers" "invented" it. INSANE. These people are nuts." Not nuts at all. It means Apple paid the USPTO off so now it shows they did invent it.

Apple should include T-Mo's monthly payment system. I don't know why the hell they don't.

Guys, help me out here. I've never owned an iPhone, only Android devices. The only Apple devices I own are a 15 inch MacBook Pro Retina and an iPad Mini. (Check my devices page in my profile). I'm am not impartial towards one brand or the other. But, I love Android phones and my phone portfolio is vast. I had a Note 2 and have a Note 3 right now, however I am thinking of keeping my 3 and grabbing the 128gb 6 Plus and just picking up the Note 5 next year. I figure it'd be a decent "break" from Android for a year until the Note 5 is released next year. Thoughts? Don't be shy.

Then get a 64GB 6+ if you really want an iPhone.

Compare the spec difference between the '4 and the Plus. You may not be able to part with features that you take for granted on the Note.

that's an expensive break if you ask me

Try a Lumia 1520. Screen size is closer to your Notes, it's already running a proven OS and doesn't have "just released" issues, you won't look like a fool with what is essentially an ipad nano attached to your face, it's more productivity-friendly, and doesn't cost as much as a really nice laptop.

I just saw the carrier variations on the Apple website and it appears the Verizon and Tmobile brands won't have NFC antennas built in. Somebody please tell me this is not so!!

The T-Mobile and ATT versions don't include the new LTE bands each carrier is now supporting either. Overall, this new iPhone 6 is obvious optimized for profit including missing things on purpose that Apple will sell you with the "6S".

well i was planning on getting a 32GB bit i guess i'll be getting another 64GB iPhone this year. the sad thing is this probably depreciated my 64GB 5S more than i thought it would.

There will be a lot of people who want a 64GB 5S. Keep in mind it is not being made anymore.

yeah, that's true.

I really hope the Verizon iPhone will allow you to surf the Web while on a voice call now. That's the only reason why the iPhone couldn't be my only phone. It would be crazy to overlook such a simple feature.
