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 going jet black with a spigen clear case. I do know it'll have some micro marks by I'm not too concerned with that due to I never sell my iPhones.

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?

I am not sure. It seemed like that, but it can not get through to sprint so I could not place the order. It said the would reserve a phone for me wit ha 4-6 week delivery time. I am holding there and trying though the sprint website

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 :-(

      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.

      So, we all know about the lovely iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus User thread, and there are many different device focused threads across S4GRU, but there are none for us older iPhone users. So, why should they get to have all the fun? This thread is dedicated to anything and everything about our beautiful (Spark-less) iPhone 5's and 5S's.
       
      Discuss anything like jailbreaks, hardware problems, how much you love your device, how great it is to have at least one LTE band compared to the folks who still have 4's and 4S's, ask questions and maybe you can get some answers, etc. etc.
       
      Discuss!
       
      -Anthony
