Sprint changes its iPhone For Life plan to include the new Apple iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus
Sprint has just updated its iPhone For Life plan to include the new Apple iPhone 6 and Apple iPhone 6 Plus. For $80 a month, plan members get to lease the 16GB iPhone 6 while receiving unlimited talk, text and data. This works out to a $50 month charge for using the Sprint pipeline, and $30 a month to lease the phone.

You don't have to settle for the 16GB model of the iPhone 6. You can sign up for the iPhone For Life plan with a 64GB iPhone 6 ($85 a month) or the 128GB version of the device ($90 a month). And if it's the phablet-sized iPhone that you want, you can replace the 4.7-inch iPhone 6 with the 5.5-inch iPhone 6 Plus for the 16GB model ($85 a month), 64GB model ($90 a month) or 128GB model ($95 a month).

According to Sprint, the iPhone For Life plan using the 16GB iPhone 6 will save you $445 over T-Mobile's comparable plan, $570 over a somewhat similar plan from AT&T, and $667 over the plan from Verizon that matches Sprint's offering as closely as possible. Keep in mind that you are not purchasing the iPhone from Sprint, you are merely leasing it. This means that when the 12 months is up, you do not have ownership of the handset.

Not a good idea for people who destroy phones. So you'll be buying a case for a phone you dont own. If you break it you buy it, so either way youre going to pay. So just pay the money and call it yours. Crap sevice, crap idea.

Sprint needs to give away iPhones and every other phone they to try and get people over to their network.

Even if Sprint is the cheapest in this regard, I'd rather pay more for a network that isn't complete garbage.

+1 That network is garbage! I don't know how people can keep their service.

It's not complete garbage. Sprint has spent a long time upgrading its network and it shows. If you have a triband phone, you would really know how good Sprints network has gotten. If you have never used Sprint or have not used them recently then keep the uneducated comments to yourself.

Obviously, mileage will vary depending on where you are, but in my area Sprint is the worst of the Big 4. That's all I'm saying.

Just because one carrier is not as good in one area does not mean they are complete garbage. Your comment is making a blanket statement which is not correct. There are markets where my personal Verizon phone doesn't work as well as my Sprint work phone. Does that mean Verizon is garbage?? When was the last time you used Sprint ? The only part of your comment I agree with is the YMMV part. Every carrier has bad areas. That's all I'm saying.

My statement is clearly an opinion. I don't see how it could be incorrect. It's all relative. To someone with some amazing network in Korea, Verizon could be garbage. You believe what you believe & I will too.

I know it's fashionable to bash Sprint but I have few issue with them here in the Chicago area. It all depends where you live.

I agree. My coverage and speeds have improved over the past 2 years. I have solid LTE both at my home and work and since I have just upgraded to the Note 4 with tri-band, it's even better. I also have T-Mobile on my OnePlus One and there are more places I have coverage with Sprint than T-Mobile, such as Portola Valley, CA (5 miles away from Palo Alto) where I get ZERO T-Mobile coverage. In the middle of Silicon Valley with 0 coverage by T-Mobile and where many Silicon Valley millionaires and billionaires live at. With all the spectrum they own and the money being pumped into them by SoftBank, they'll continue to improve.

At least Sprint has better phones these days. It's not the complete puzzle, but it's better than no phones and no network like it used to be with Hesse.

Since the LTE rollout their service has greatly improved. And what this article doesn't mention is that with the 24 month lease you pay$20 a month so 480$ over 24 months then at which time you can trade in for a new iPhone or purchase the one you were leasing for $200. That's $680 total for the phone. A new iPhone costs 684$ with tax so you actually save $4 on the phone with this plan if you purchase the phone at the end of the lease.

This doesn't start until Nov. 14th... Iphone 6 and 6 plus were already part of the iPhone for life, they've added the iPhone 5s to the mix. This new leasing offer is a 1 year lease instead of 2 year like they already have. The current offer start @ $20 for the iPhone 6 16gb on 24 month lease.. Also most existing customers on old plans have a $15 discount offer when they sign up for the lease. $5 a month and no money down for old plans(good credit) is a sweet deal. Poorly written article.
