Where can I buy the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus


Hey ho, the iPhone 6 is here, and there is an iPhone 6 Plus to go along with it, at 4.7" and 5.5" screens, respectively. In addition to the larger displays, you also get better cameras, faster chipset, the ability to take advantage of the Apple Pay mobile payments system, and a brand new ultra-thin design. So where can you buy the goods at this very moment?

  • First stop - Apple, of course. You can get the 16 GB iPhone 6 for $199 on contract on all major carriers, with a new 128 GB version going for $399, and a 64 GB one at a $299 price point. The 5.5" iPhone 6 Plus phablet starts at $299 for 16GB, $399 for 64, $499 for 128GB. As for the full retail off-contract price? We blast off at $650 without a contract, for the 16 GB iPhone 6, all the way up to $949 for the 128 GB iPhone 6 Plus.

  • Next up - carrier shops. Verizon, AT&T, Sprint and T-Mobile are all carrying all the iPhone 6/6 Plus models and colors. The Sprint one is the model that supports record 20 LTE bands, but the rest are no slouches either, with no less than 16 bands for a truly globetrotting LTE experience.

  • Retail and online stores - Sam's Club (they have the cheapest price - $177/$277 for the iPhone 6/6 Plus on contract), Best Buy, Radio Shack (this one is offering a free $50 iTunes gift card with any in-store purchase of the iPhone 6, plus trade-in options on old iPhones for up to $300), Walmart (another great option, as the iPhone 6/6 Plus can be had for $179/$279 on contract), Target (offering $50 to $200 for trade-ins), Staples and many more.


All prices abroad are jacked up higher with a few tens and even more, compared to the US. China still hasn't received a full retail pricing for the two new iPhones, although they are prominently featured on the local Apple Store site there.

  • UK - the iPhone 6 in UK takes it from 539 pounds sterling with VAT, while contract prices start from zero on a 48.50 pounds monthly contract at TEsco Mobile, to 209.99 pounds on a 38.99 pounds at EE for the basic version;

  • Germany - the iPhone starts at EUR 699, respectively, going up to EUR 999 for the most expensive 6 Plus. The German carriers are a bit less generous than the UK ones, as you can't get it for absolutely free, but O2's offer of €19 upfront for the 16 GB iPhone 6 model, and €29 for iPhone 6 Plus is still great, all with their new flat rate;

  • France - here they have the iPhone 6 pretty expensive off-contract, with the 16 GB iPhone 6 going for €709, and the 6 Plus offered at €809. With a contract at Orange, the iPhone 6 is €199 ,90, and the 6 Plus €299 ,90;

  • Italy - these guys have it the worst, as the 6/6 Plus go for €729/€839, respectively, the most expensive we saw, and carriers haven't started offering contract preorders yet, since the iPhones there will be available September 26th;

  • Japan - unlike previous years, the Japanese won't have the most expensive iPhones for themeselves. This time the iPhone 6 starts from ¥67 800 there, while the 6 Plus can be had for ¥79 800 in the 16 GB version. NTT DoCoMo will give the iPhone 6 to you on contract from 3,078 yen/month on a two-year contract.

I talked to the T-Mobile reps over the phone. T-Mobile stores will not carry the Iphone 6 Plus. It is online ordering only. They will carry the Iphone 6 in stores just not the Iphone 6 Plus.

Why is it that the Sprint one (the most locked down and clustermonkey one) gets the most bands?? Doesnt seem to make sense... Oh, and on that note, Apple is retarded for not including LTE Band12 for 700mHz. Stupid stupid

if you can't post without calling something retarded, please don't post. It's a good start to a actual world phone. Name the other smartphone with more than 20 bands of LTE. i'll wait here. /i hate kids

Good News!!! TMO is price matching Sprint on iPhone 4, 4S for $201. Awesome news of the day!!! I have been keeping close tabs on this as I might be the one to influence the pricing of $36 to $201. I called at least once a day!!!

iPhone 4 and 4S are completely useless phones, especially on T-Mobile. Enjoy your 2G data speeds....

If you're on T-Mobile wait for the iPhone 6s / 6s Plus with LTE band 12 700 Mhz. T-Mobile's version of iPhone 6 / 6+ lacks LTE band 12, meaning it is NOT optimized for T-Mobile USA LTE bands.

Bingo! Very critical flaw (for T-Mobile users) of this iPhone
