T-Mobile new iPhone lease deal

I have been with AT&T for over 20 years and never really considered leaving until now. While T-Mobile from time to time was a few dollars cheaper it was never worth my while. That is until now. They have a deal where you can lease an iPhone 6 or 6+ for $15/month for 18 months. No money down. You can also change your phone up to 3 times in a 12 month period. That means I can get an iPhone6 now, when the new iPhone6s comes out get it and then change to maybe a 6s+ all within 12 months. That's much better than the various Next plans AT&T has. 

 

In the past AT&T has come out with a competitive promotion for every new T-Mobile deal. IF AT&T can offer a good competing deal I'll stay otherwise I'll switch over to T-Mobile. Yes, I know the network isn't as good, but for the areas I'm in its fine.

I can't say if AT&T will offer any new deals or not, but I would offer you a word of wisdom.  Make sure you read and understand the "fine print" on the T-Mobile deal before you choose to make that change.  You are already aware of the service coverage issues, that's why T-Mobile offers so many deals to get customers.  I hope you are able to find something that makes you happy.  You might also want to compare the AT&T NEXT plan with the trade-in option.  While it isn't technically a lease, it would allow you to trade in your phone every 18 months (using a NEXT 24 agreement),   The cost of the phone is a bit higher, but it might be worth it if the network is really more of an issue than you realize right now.

The Next deals are nowhere near as good especially with the iPhone 6s about to be released. I would have to wait for that instead of being able to get the iPhone 6 now and the s as soon as it is released(available).

 

As for the network, the coverage has improved. I know that where I need coverage its as good as AT&T.

It can't be said often enough, so I'll echo Geekboy: read the fine print.  I'll point out three areas of interest with that lease program: 1) the initial trade-in requirement, 2) the lease term starts over each time you select a new phone and 3) the penalties for damages on devices turned in.

 

JUMP! on Demand has many other facets that I don't care for, so read everything before you make your final decision.

my suggestion is read this

Also remember that 15 bucks is for the iPhone 6 only....  If you upgrade to the 6s your $15 will goto almost $30.  The 15 bucks is a fishing promo......

That's an interesting point. The "fine print" is very unclear on that. One are talks about the $15 being a promotion, but good for the entire lease. Another section talks about "free upgrade", but nowhere does it mention if the lease is "re-written" and then you loose the promotional rate. Good catch! Thanks.
