    Apple Plan because I do not want to give AT&T a dime more or less then they deserve.

    Apple Plan. Because it is unlocked and you get AppleCare+ included.

    Do you have a Corporate, business, and prepaid service plan?

    The Apple Plan is more Expensive on paper, FYI.

    Am I missing something, did they stop teaching math in school?

    Take the monthly Next payment, multiply by 12 add in the full tax paid at the start and if you bought AppleCare + add that in. The total will be what you paid for the year. You can get refund for second year of AppleCare+ from Apple.

    Now take the Apple monthly price, add in the full tax. When you use Apple program AppleCare+ is added monthly.

    Compare the two totals, your question will be answered. Don't depend on someone else telling you what is cheaper, simply do the math yourself.......Dah.

    Only other point to consider is when you go with Apple plan, the bank that gives the loan does a hard credit check, possibly reducing your credit score a bit. Next program does not, as loan is from AT&T. Both loans are zero interest.

    If you pay off both loans and don't trade in the phone you pay exactly the same amount. The total cost of the iPhone and taxes.

    If you don't care about AppleCare then AT&T is $128.88 cheaper.
    If you want AppleCare then AT&T is only $0.12 cheaper.

    Why? Some people NEED an organ before October 16th. You WANT an iPhone before October 16th.

    The iPhone 7 will still be there when he gets back.

    Your best bet for getting an iPhone 7 is camping outside an Apple Store TODAY and waiting till launch. You'll be first in line, and 99% guaranteed that you'll get the iPhone you want.

    Let's just hope this isn't like the Apple Watch launch, though.

    How is anyone on here supposed to know what Apple stock situation is for any phone, let alone one that has not yet been released. Anything anyone may say is just a wild guess.
