why would someone want to lease a phone?

 

It's similar to the iPhone for Life program. Generally cheaper than the financing program.

Leasing is easier, and provides a good value. That's why people lease phones. No trying to sell your phone, or shelving it like many likely do. It's not for everyone, but it is for some folks. I like to buy my phone (just pay full retail), which gives me options to sell and replace at any time. My wife will never get anything but an iPhone, and only likes to upgrade every 2 years, so it works well for her line.

Phone buying/leasing is fast becoming the "new car debt" pay over time. I walked into a sprint store couple weeks ago to upgrade as my 2 years were up. I was told they would only do easy pay/lease. i turned around and walked out.

 

Went over to Best Buy. who Priced matched Amazon plus another 100.00 off per phone. Opened a Best Buy card and applied the 2 100.00 credits directly  to the purchase  and have 12 mos no interest to pay off the remainder which i will do  in the next month or so. 

 

I'm on a good plan ED 1500, now with unlimited minutes from Marcelo plus a 18% employer discount.  The math  just doesn't work out for me to pay on a phone for 2 years and then  own a phone that's outdated,

 

One can only hope if this becomes the norm it will drive down the price of devices.

On ED1500 you can lease for $5 a month with the $15 credit.

that's still 120.00 over the 2 years and you don't own it. I paid 150.00 and I have a phone to sell at the end of the 2 years I just sold my note 2 on eBay for 130.00 minus what I paid for sales tax I'm only into the phone for 20.00.still better than a lease. leasing makes sense for some just not me

You are paying 25 to own it, this is 15 to lease.

true and its just like buying some thing new, and then it being cheaper down the road....

 

because the g3s were on for $15 for the easy pay to......

 

hopefully my 12 mths switch out is still good that i had when in the framily set up

My initial thought with back of the napkin 1 min math is that any lease over $10 a month is a terrible deal for the purchaser... $5 a month is not horrible. $60 a year plus you get a the latest phones... sounds about as good as you can do.

Are factoring in the $ 20-30 in plan price. Why pay 200 up front and 80 a month (2 year total cost 2120) when you can pay zero up front and 70 a mont h ( 2 year total cost 1680).

 

That

Leasing is a bargain if you are price conscious, take care of your devices, and always want the newest device.... And one of the majority of Americans who live paycheck to paycheck. If you keep disposable income savings, there will always be a cheaper/happier way to do it. Problem is most Americans don't. If you're willing to use a device that you financed or paid off beyond 24 months, you will always save. Does the average wireless user want to keep using a phone beyond 2 years? No.

 

Be American, Sprint. Lease your heart out!

That

because you can easily sell your phone for >$200. I'm not sure where your plan price comes from though. If that is the case then leasing still makes more sense.

My way unlimited or data 450 are $80 a month. The iphone 6 is eligible for a special $50 plan when you lease/finance.

 

So $50 + $20 = $70

How does paying $20/month for a phone and using it beyond 24 months lead you to "you will always save"??? That's $480 for a phone you could get for $200 with a contract. If you're gonna stay with sprint anyway that'd be a much cheaper option
