T-Mobile CEO John Legere has announced on Twitter that it will offer the iPhone 6s for as low as $5 per month through JUMP! On Demand with an iPhone 6 trade in, or as low as $10 per month with an iPhone 5s trade in. The exact monthly payment will range between $5 and $15 per month depending on the iPhone 6s model you purchase and older iPhone model traded in.

If you do not want to trade in your current iPhone, T-Mobile has a JUMP! On Demand promotion that offers the 16GB iPhone 6s for $20 per month for 18 months with zero dollars paid upfront, totaling $360 under the agreement the device is returned in good condition. To keep the iPhone, you must pay an additional $164, bringing the total cost to $524 -- a savings of $125 and the best deal for those willing to join T-Mobile.

6/ YES - you read it right! Trade-in an iPhone6 & get a new #iPhone6s for $5/mth or trade-in your iPhone5s & get a new one for $10/mth! - John Legere (@JohnLegere) September 22, 2015
T-Mobile will begin selling the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus on September 25. The smartphones will support T-Mobile's Extended Range LTE on the 700MHz spectrum, which extends the network's LTE signal twice as far from its cellular towers and works four times better in buildings. T-Mobile Extended Range LTE is live in 175 markets and covers more than half of the American population.

T-Mobile will honor this deal for customers who already pre-ordered an iPhone 6s or 6s Plus.

Been wanting to get away from ATT for a while. T-Mobile is starting to look like the best option at this point.

I can recommend this move. I did it myself this past year to move to the iPhone 6. Couldn't be happier, and the 6s' Extended Range LTE will be fantastic. Seen it work great on my brother's S6 Edge

Now this is a very creative program. I would have never expected this. So does this mean the $5/month will continue when the iPhone 7 and beyond is released? In other words, if someone takes advantage of the iPhone 6 trade-in and when the iPhone 7 is released will the monthly payment still be $5/month with JOD? If that is the case, that is a tremendous deal.

If ETF buyout applies to this too, T-Mobile is actually looking like a solid option.

Yes; very, very tempting. I have a 6 and love it, but am so tired of ATT's ridiculous rates. I still have an unlimited plan and that's the only think keeping me with them. Though I don't use much data, so it is getting less and less valuable.

This kicks ass! I preordered my 4 6S's on the 13th on Jump on demand so will be receiving shipment in a few days.

Hmm....I need to explore this. I like the unlocked option with AUP but it's really kind of become unnecessary on TMO since they have free roaming in so many countries.

This is the biggest selling point for me (aside from the $$$ saved).

I really hope TMo will offer the 6S on their Test Drive promotion now that it has band 12...I'd be interested in seeing how their service is in buildings with that.

So what are the actual prices per device? Do we get to continually trade-in for that rate every year? Will they pay my Verizon contract off? Can you test drive the 6S at launch?

I'd really consider switching to T-Mobile if all of the above is true and their new LTE extended capability works well.

I currently have a UDP with Verizon, but they're so expensive compared to T-Mobile, I feel like I might consider switching since T-Mobile will pay my ETF...

Please correct me if I'm wrong.

Trade in 6: $5/month x 18months = $90
W/o trade in: $20/month x 18 = $360
Cost of iphone 6 = $360 - $90 = $270?

IF this is true, then not really a good deal no? Pretty sure you can get a little more for your iphone 6 on craigslist...
