Telecom company T-Mobile is now making a last minute effort to attract buyers who are thinking of going in for the iPhone 5 on their network. Customers can now exchange their iPhone 4 or iPhone 4S for the new iPhone 5 for $0 down payment, to go with their monthly payments.
This offer will allow buyers to save $99 on the no-contract handset. Mike Sievert, the chief marketing officer for T-Mobile, said in a statement, “Our message to iPhone 4S and iPhone 4 customers is simple: bring in your device and trade up to iPhone 5 on T-Mobile”. Sievert went on to say that they were making it very attractive for users to buy an iPhone 5, by pairing an unbeatable upfront price and trade-in offer.
In the month of March 2013, the telecom company announced that will begin selling the new iPhone on April 12, 2013 for $99.99, this will go along with monthly payments of $20 over a period of 24 months, or $579 with no contract.
The trade-in offer extends through Father’s Day. This means that people who are looking for the best gift for their fathers, will do well to stop by a T-Mobile store and pick out an iPhone 5, specially if they have an older iPhone handy. It remains to be seen whether T-Mobile will be able to pull off greater sales for this quarter with their new plan.
