Sprint responds to T-Mobile's trade-in promotion, offers the iPhone 6s for as little as $1 per month
While Verizon and AT&T are dueling out for the title of largest telecom operator in the US by subscriber count, Sprint and T-Mobile are currently engaged in a gloves-off battle for the third position. Unwilling to let T-Mobile claim a firm grip of the podium spot through its latest iPhone trade-in promotion, Sprint has recently announced a similar deal, basically offering a free upgrade from the iPhone 6 to the iPhone 6s.

T-Mobile lets you have the 16GB iPhone 6s for as little as $5 per month through its Jump! On Demand lease program if you trade in an iPhone 6. Sprint's new promotional offer, which is actually an extension to its iPhone Forever program, lowers the monthly payments to just $1 per month if you're willing to trade your iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus. That's obviously on top of the monthly data and voice subscription.

If you're looking for something more than the entry-level Apple iPhone 6s, you can also get the 64GB version for $5.77 per month, or the 128GB version for $10.3 per month. The iPhone 6s Plus is also available through the trade-in promo, at $5, $9.77, or $14.53 per month for the 16GB, 64GB, and 128GB versions, respectively. Oh, and you can also trade-in the two-year-old iPhone 5s, and Sprint will lower the monthly payment to $10 monthly for the iPhone 6s or $14 monthly for the iPhone 6s Plus.

It's nice to see telecom operators battling it out, especially since these deals and promotional prices are a direct consequence of the fierce battle between carriers for your monthly subscription. What do you guys think?

If Sprint offered family unlimited data plans like T-Mobile does, I may have considered them. They only offer unlimited data for personal lines, sadly. $61/month for unlimited everything is good. But to be able to drop it down to $40/line with 5 lines, would be better.

They do have a family unlimited data plan, it is $110 1st 2 lines, $50 per additional line. They dont do "throttled" unlimited options like T-Mobile does at lower pricing tiers.

Sprint doesn't throttle speeds because their top speed is as slow as throttled speeds.

LOL - exaggeration, but I wish I could say it wasn't 100% true.

They're insane. Instead of burning money for this promo, spend it on the network!
