Apple upgrade program vs Sprint lease

Now that Sprint is charging more for the iPhone lease, do you guys feel that the Sprint lease (old iPhone forever plan) is still the best deal? I'm having a tough time deciding. I've been feeling like the two extra dollars/month for an iPhone plus 128 GB phone through apple is worth it as it's unlocked and it comes with apple care. But I've been recently re-thinking that as it may be easier to upgrade though Sprint and I have never used Apple care within the first year of a phone...

Thoughts?

I would pay an extra $2 per month for Apple Care on a leased device.

Thru discounts, my lease in 6s, is half of what they are offering on the 7 and I pay $1 for iPhone 4ever. Hopefully they will help the Loyal Customers out

The way I see it, is on Sprint, I would go from paying $19/month to paying $39 and change for the iPhone plus 128 GB one. On the apple upgrade program is 41 and change.

Let me know if you know of a way to get it cheaper than that through Sprint...

I just upgraded last year for a 6s any suggestions on getting upgraded to a 7 I have been with sprint over 15 years? Looking at the apple program as there is no contract!

Are you on a lease or do you own the 6s outright? If you own it, Sprint will give you a 7 32 GB for free.

If you smash your screen with Apple Care+, repair is only $29, and any other damage resulting in replacement is $100. This beats out the Sprint insurance deductible. It also means you do business at the Genius Bar, not with Sprint.

AppleCare+ has always been a better deal than Sprint's (or any carrier's, for that matter) deductible. The only benefits the carrier's insurance provides is for loss or theft.

    • Mike, are you still recommending that this beta only be used on on dual psim/esim devices or should it now be basically safe for all devices (with usual beta risks)?
    • A new SignalCheck Pro beta is rolling out right now with LOTS of bug fixes.. and some new features. The full changelog is in the app or on the website. In addition to many bugfixes, there are some notable new options: Colorize location display to indicate low accuracy (yellow when Trail Logger is enabled) or outdated timestamp (red). This is enabled by default. Enable/disable display of location coordinates with location accuracy and the location timestamp.. so now each value can be individually enabled/disabled. Configure the maximum age of location data before Location Service is restarted; the default remains at 10 minutes but can now be configured as desired. Limit max number of neighbor cells to display (including 0, if you only want to see the summary line). Some users are seeing LTE or NR data persist after a connection is lost. I made some minor changes, but I wanted to get this release rolled out before continuing to dig deeper into that issue since I made so many other changes that may or may not impact this bug. One thing that users can try is to disable the option under Preferences > Display Settings > Show Hidden Data -- that may resolve the issue. Looking forward to feedback! Thanks..
    • Yup. It keeps GPS info up to date while logging. 
    • Looks like GPS Status and Toolbox
    • https://www.fiercewireless.com/wireless/t-mobile-att-and-verizon-gear-super-bowl T-Mobile DAS upgrades and AT&T under the seats antennas are interesting. Hopefully someone gets pictures and details of the under the seats antennas.
