    Hi guys, I have an iPhone 6 128gb, I am eligible for an upgrade as of the 21st. I'm with att, my question is, who should I order the new iPhone 7 plus from? Ideally I'd want to trade in my current phone for the new one, so who is going to be offering the best bang for the buck?

    I just switched from AT&T to T-Mobile. I personally think they have the best deal in town. More bang for your buck. International data and texts all unlimited. They just ended the great deal with the iPhone 7 upgrade.

    You should order for whichever carrier best serves your needs, providing good service in the places you need cell service. Figure that out first and it'll narrow down the choices.

    If you've not ordered an iphone7 yet and are already an AT&T customer you've missed the boat on their promo. Had to have new phone ordered by Sunday 9/25 to get in on the trade-in $650 credit existing customer promo; though if you're in PR you have until 9/30.

    I'd love to switch to TMO, but their service is not good at my work locations.

    this was really the best deal there is. You may still be able to get it. Stop in store and see what they say.

    Are you sure? I was skeptical about their coverage as well. Only to find out it was better than my AT&T in NYC. I guess it depends on where u are.

    Tmobile for me personally was fine, but the service inside of buildings is what killed the network. Go inside a grocery store, no service.

    All this coverage stuff is so subjective. In NYC at my barbershop AT&T didn't work. Always relied on wifi in the shop. Now with T-Mobile I actually have 5 bars.

    as of the 6S with the new antennas I was able to get (on average) 2 more bars inside where i used to get 0-1 bars. Also wifi calling/texting has fixed a lot of the issues since wifi is almost everywhere now.

    Positive. I have co-workers with TMO phones, and my ipad has a TMO SIM (free 200MB plan).

    Again, that's just my situation. TMO is certainly fine for a lot of people and I certainly recommend checking them out.

    Also don't necessarily trust coverage maps. Verizon and Spring both claim good coverage at my home but the reality is they suck in that specific spot because their tower is on the other side of a slight ridge, and my home is in its RF "shadow". TMO and AT&T use a nearby tower in the other direction and provide full bars of service even in my basement.

    VZW $650 promo end 9/30. You just need to order/preorder by 9/30 and then trade device in within 14 days of receiving your iPhone 7 to get the credit!

    Well I want to stay with AT&T, I was either hoping to get it from Best Buy or Apple store or directly through AT&T, but it seems like either one of them have any promotions going on for AT&T which is a bummer. I might wait couple more weeks to see if any deals come around for AT&T.

    Yeah, AT&T's $650 in rebates for buying an iphone7 on 24 month Next and trading in your iphone6 after receiving the 7 sort of overshadowed any launch deals.

    Who knows, maybe they'll extend it if TMO or VZN push theirs longer, it may be worth talking to people at an AT&T corporate store.

    Apart from that, check out Target. In past years they've sometimes had some decent promos.
