iPhone 7/7 Plus Rumor Thread

Recommended Posts

The iPhone for Life deal that was available in December said that when the new device came out, they would be upgrade eligible, so their account should say that on September 1st, they became upgrade eligible. Whereas once they upgrade to the iPhone 7, they will move to the new iPhone Forever deal, where they have to make 12 consecutive lease payments before they become upgrade eligible again.

Oh, ok. Thx.

I'll be upgrading from a 6+ to a 7+ 128G "Black".

The "Jet Black" is prone to scratching even in a protective case.

So there is no easy way to protect it 100% from scratches when it

comes time to resell it.

So a used "Black" can be kept in mint condition easier than a "Jet Black".

Knowing Zagg, they will capitalize on this scratch problem as fast as they can.

I'm struggling mathematically on what the proper route is for an upgrade from a Iphone 6+.  We are on the ED1500 - and plan to keep it that way.

 

A 128gb Iphone 7+ looks to be $419 on Sprint with a 2 year agreement - but then you are only upgrading every two years.  I think it would be neato to be able to upgrade each time a new one is released.

 

Or you can do the Apple Iphone Upgrade deal through Apple at $41.58 a month.  That includes AppleCare+ and comes out to $498/yr for the device - BUT you can get the new phone each year.

 

Or the Sprint Iphone Forever deal?  Have not seen pricing for that for the iPhone 7+ yet.  But the key here might be that it doesnt 'include' AppleCare+.

 

So if I convince myself that upgrading every year is the 'norm' - I am out, what... $80/year for the ability to upgrade each year?

 

Been a long day - and I am struggling.   :(

Does this work with people on ED1500? Cause now I'm considering the 7

The fine print does not mention anything about plan restrictions and this appears to be an installment plan not a lease.

According to the following article, Sprint will be selling the 256 GB models for the price of the 128 GB models during preorder "while supplies last": https://9to5mac.com/2016/09/08/sprint-free-iphone-7-promo-preorder-deal/

That's pretty interesting. Wish it would have saved me money (I need at least 64GB storage on my phone), but I guess I'll take the extra free storage instead. Maybe it'll boost resale a little when I sell the phone in 2 years. What would've been even better is if they were offering a free upgrade from 32GB to 128GB, but that would have conflicted with the free 32GB iPhone 7 offers.

 

Regardless, any deal on an iPhone is a good deal ;)

the weird thing is that I can't find the terms. Will this be only for the 7 or also for the 7 plus?

We all hope it includes the 7 Plus, but we won't know until 12:01 am unfortunately.

Is there a option for installment billing via sprint through Apple? Not trying to have a credit card tied to a phone payment per month?

Nothing on sprint site works besides signing in. I even signed out and went as if I was a new customers and that didn't even bring up any phones to select. Sprint didn't plan well for this.

Smh. The site matches the network lol. I wanted my jet black but it seems like it's getting slim by the minute. Well I can't stress over it.

At least last year you could call Telesales to get the iPhone pre-ordered. Looks like they didn't keep Telesales open this year, so we're stuck until the website starts working.

This is such a letdown. I was gunning for a switch to Verizon all week but my unlimited plan kept me here. Verizon's site is working so fast :-(

      CONTEST CLOSED!!!
       
      LIMITED TIME PROMOTION!!!
      YOU COULD POSSIBLY WIN A NEW iPHONE 8 IF YOU DONATE TO SUPPORT S4GRU
      **OR COMPARABLY PRICED ANDROID DEVICE!**

       
      The Goal
       
      The goal is to have some fun and raise some money to support S4GRU.  If we can raise enough money to cover the device by 8 PM Pacific Time on Friday, October 27th, then we will schedule the raffle.  The contest winner can select the color from what's available.  The winner can also select the carrier (not limited to Sprint).
       
      The Plan
       
      If we are able to raise at least as much as the device costs us plus incidental charges like taxes and shipping, we will add any additional proceeds to the S4GRU general fund.  If we can't raise enough, we will provide opportunity to refund.
       
      And which model it ends up being depends on how much money we can raise.  If we raise just $750, it will be the iPhone 8 64GB ($699 value).  For each additional $500 we collect beyond $750, we will give another $100 in toward upgrading to the iPhone 8+, iPhone X or memory/apple care upgrades.  The winner can select any variant or upgrades, but they will need to pay any cost difference, from the prize value.  Increases in prize vales will be announced in this thread.  THE WINNER CAN SELECT AN ANDROID DEVICE IN LIEU OF AN iPHONE, IF THEY CHOOSE.  Like a NOTE 8, Pixel 2, LG V30, Essential Phone, etc.  Equal or lesser value to the winning iPhone prize.
       
      The Raffle
       
      Each donation to the iPHONE 8 PROMO will receive a range of numbers, equating to one number for every dollar you donate.  The minimum donation to the cause is $10.  If you donate $10, you get a range of 10 numbers.  If you donate $100, you get a range of 100 numbers.  The more you donate, the greater your chances of winning.  There is no limit to the amount you can donate...in amount or frequency.  But it needs to be at least $10 per donation to the iPHONE 8 PROMO.
       
      You will receive a Private Message (or email if you are not a S4GRU member) from S4GRU giving you your numbers after your donation.  Most likely within 8-12 hours, but could take a day or two.
       
      We will stop accepting donations at 8PM Pacific on Friday, October 27th.  Any donations received after that time will not be counted toward this promotion.  Date and time of the drawing will be announced after the close of donations acceptance.  We will select a number at random using my random number generator app in my Pixel XL.  You do not need to be present in the live chat to win.
      All money donated to the raffle will be credited to your S4GRU accumulation total and will count toward future upgrades.  If you are not currently a S4GRU Sponsor, you will be given Sponsor status for six months with the minimum $10 raffle donation.

      To Enter
       
      Go to the S4GRU PayPal Donation section by clicking on this hyperlink or by by clicking the donate button in the upper right hand corner of most S4GRU pages.  Enter an amount you want to donate for this promotion, minimum $10.  In the notes section, tell us your screen name and type iPHONE 8 PROMO.  If you forget to do that in the PayPal donation, then send me a Message.  You will get a message response giving you your raffle numbers by 11 PM Pacific on 10/27/2017.  If you don't get them, message me.

      Rules
       
      S4GRU Membership is not required to enter.  S4GRU Staff Members and their families are ineligible to win.  Dollars spent on the promotion will count toward future member upgrades.  There is no cash value of the prize.  S4GRU will pay the shipping costs to send the prize to the winner.  The winner will be offered options as to network selections, device options and colors based on availability within the winning prize amount.   S4GRU cannot guarantee availability of any products, types, varieties or colors.  Although many devices can be used on several networks, S4GRU cannot guarantee operability on any network.  A SIM card purchase for the winner's preferred network may be required and is not paid by S4GRU.  This contest is void where prohibited.  Pre-scheduled automatic recurring payments to S4GRU during the contest period will not be eligible for entry in the contest.  Should the winner desire a phone other than the iPhone product offered at contest conclusion, they can request an Android device of equal or lesser value.  If a device more expensive than the iPhone offered is desired, the winner will need to pay the difference before the product will be ordered. If winner selects a less expensive phone than the prize offered, S4GRU will retain those funds as a donation.  The contest may be subject to amendment, extension or cancellation as necessary.  S4GRU reserves the right to provide a gift card or PayPal payment of the value of the prize for convenience or difficulty in sourcing the prize occurs.

      This came up in my Sprint feed of articles.  Not only do I think this is a smart move on Apple's part, but Brightstar is all over the place helping move these phones around the world.

      See: https://www.sprint.com/landings/iphone-ipad-bundle/
       
      Sprint just announced a new offer that bundles together the iPhone and iPad and waives the monthly cost of a 16GB iPad mini 3 when both are leased through the iPhone/iPad for Life program and a 2GB data plan is purchased for the tablet.
       
      So: A 16GB iPhone 6 on Sprint’s $50 Simply Unlimited plan and a 16GB iPad mini 3 with a $30 2GB data plan will run $100 per month after the iPad’s monthly lease rate is erased in the form of a $17 monthly service credit.
       
      The bundle deal is fully customizable with the iPhone 6 Plus and iPad Air 2, as well as 64GB and 128GB models of all four Apple devices, available at an incrementally higher cost.
