The exact terms of installment plans not only vary from carrier to carrier, but also are changing rapidly as wireless companies jockey for your attention. Take, for example, that 64GB i Phone 6s I’ve been eyeing: AT& T: The carrier’s Next plan has a variety of payment schedule options, but if I want the option to upgrade in a year, I’d need to pay .50 a month for the next 12 months.(The subsequent six months’ worth of payments would be waived if I upgrade.)" data-reactid="74"AT&T: The carrier’s Next plan has a variety of payment schedule options, but if I want the option to upgrade in a year, I’d need to pay .50 a month for the next 12 months.Others (as noted above) charge low monthly costs for their installment plans, though they may require you to trade in your existing phone or make a down payment.
And every year, people ask themselves the same questions: “Should I upgrade? ”the new i Phone 6s and 6s Plus. You can pay for the phone up front or in installments. And you can get a warranty from Apple, your carrier, or a third-party service." data-reactid="28"In the past, that decision has depended mostly on the kind of deal you could get from your chosen wireless carrier.
But this year, the landscape has shifted: There are more options than ever when it comes to buying the new i Phone 6s and 6s Plus.
It also includes an extended warranty service in the form of Apple Care (see below).
Obviously, a big factor in this decision is the carrier you’re currently signed to and the contract you currently have.
Carriers are moving away from that contract model these days.
