    Anyone else going for this? Seems like a good deal... I'm either going with it or switching to T-Mobile.

    I was seriously considering it but I don't know how the sevice was/is and no one I know has Sprint so I stayed with AT&T. Too bad it was only $70 a month for unlimited everything which included the $20/month phone leases.

    Sprint has treated me well, but I'm not wild about leasing a phone vs. paying to own. To get the new 6 I have to either lease or break my contract and go with T-Mobile.

    I think it's an awesome deal but Sprint is terrible were I live. I have three friends with Sprint and they are all switching their contracts to other carriers for the 6 launch.

    If they had good service in my area, I'd be on it quick. People will tell you that leasing a phone is worthless, etc, etc, but if you got unlimited talk, text and data from anyone for $70, it'd be a great deal. Throw in the fact that they give you a brand new iPhone every two years and it's a great deal.

    I am coming up on the end of my contract with Verizon. Their service was great but the prices are way way too high! I am excited for the iPhone for life plan they launched and ordered my 6+ Space Grey 16GB online...I am going to try out the store on Friday to see if I can get one that way faster though

    ----------

    I used to live in a more remote area and Verizon was great there with the i5 and LTE but now that I am moving to a much bigger city Sprint service really won't be a problem at all and I'm excited for UNLIMITED data plan

    Didn't Sprint agree to purchase $20B worth of iPhones for 4 years? Maybe they haven't met the quota and they're getting desperate. Plan sucks, though.

    I think that is the reason why I was able to upgrade, even thought my current contract runs until July 1st.
    Anyway, I was able to lease a 128GB iPhone 6 Plus for only a few dollars more month that I have been paying!

    No flexibility. Taxes are deferred but you still pay them. The more expensive the iPhone you get, the lower the effective "trade-in value" you're getting.

    iPhone 6 16GB: $650 - $20*24 = $170
    iPhone 6 64GB: $750 - $25*24 = $150
    iPhone 6 128GB: $850 - $30*24 = $130
    iPhone 6+ 128GB: $950 - $35*24 = $110

    I originally thought about doing this, but the trade in value stinks. I would rather pay for the phone and then sell it outright.

    I'm seriously considering this but not sure if it is great value, so what happens at the end of 2 years with your iPhone6 plus ? Do you've to return your iPhon6+ back to Sprint ?

    I'm current sprint customer with 3 lines and paying $185 for family plan. My data usage is roughly 4-5GB between all three lines. Not sure if T-Moible would be good option for me ? Can anyone suggest anything here ?

    I want to get 3 new iPhone6+

    At the end....all you do is bring in old phone and get a new one and start it all over
