Here's where to pre-order the iPhone SE in the U.S.

Pre-orders for the Apple iPhone SE are officially live! So, where do you get one? Well, your favorite technological retailer aside, there are five traditional places you can pre-order the iPhone SE. You can try Apple's webstore, accessible through or the Apple Store iOS app. And then, there are the four major U.S. carriers - Verizon, AT&T, T-Mobile and Sprint. They all have different offers, and at least two are giving the 16GB base model away for free if you sign up. Deliveries begin March 31. So, here are your options!


Apple lets you pre-order the iPhone SE in four color schemes (silver, gold, gray, rose gold) at $399 for the 16GB model and $499 for the 64GB one. You can pay up-front, or sign up for the iPhone Upgrade Program, which lets you buy an unlocked iPhone SE on a 24-month installment plan if you trade-in your current iPhone. Here's how that works out:

What you giveWhat you getWhat you pay
iPhone 4 or 4siPhone SE$14/mo.
iPhone 5 or 5ciPhone SE$12/mo.
iPhone 5siPhone SE$10/mo.

You can also sign up with your carrier directly from Apple's website. Sprint and Verizon are giving the 16GB iPhone SE for free if you sign a new 2-year contract, or you can have the 64GB phone for $49. One can also choose an AT&T Next plan, while T-Mobile wants you to pay in full when you order through Apple.

Well, That's... Er... Surreal... I was expecting a lot of rotten tomatoes and eggs here and yet no comments so far? Anyhow, Like it or not; not many (if any) manufacturers would be willing to take your worn out smartphone and give you a brand new one... Too bad, The Fan Boys just can't see it... And when they do see it, they bury their noble heads in the ground. They don't have the muscle to mock Apple here, hence this comments section is deserted! G'Day!

Actually this is a good deal to change iphone 4 or 5/5c for the new one. I have 2 iphone 4 sitting at home, i wonder if they would give me a double discount.
