Here’s How You Can Get An iPhone X For $5 A Month
Sprint is offering an 18-month Sprint Flex plan that lets you lease an iPhone X for only $5 a month
In case you don’t feel like spending a thousand dollars on an iPhone, now you’ll have the opportunity to get Apple’s best iPhone by leasing it for only $5 a month, or $60 a year. Not too long ago, the cellular provider Sprint started offering iPhone 8 models for only $8 a month and now it’s back with an even better offer for the X.
But as good of a deal that this is, there is also a catch (there’s always a catch). In order to get the phone upgrade, you’ll need to first trade in an eligible device. While the service provider doesn’t easily state which phones are eligible, our friends over at CNET have dug through the phone-and plan-selection pages and have listed out exactly which phones Sprint will take.
Apple iPhone 6, 6 Plus, 6S, 6S Plus, 7, 7 Plus, 8, 8 Plus, SE and X; Asus Zenfone AR; Essential Phone; Google Pixel, XL, 2 and 2XL; HTC 10 and U11; LG G5, G6, Stylo 3, 3 Plus, 4, V20, V30 and V30 Plus; Motorola Moto E Plus 5, E5 Play, G6, X4, Z, Z Droid, Force Droid, Z Play, Z2 Force, Z2 Play and Z3 Play; Samsung Galaxy A8 Plus, J7, J7 Perx, J7 Prime, J7 Refine, Note 5, Note 8, S5, S5 Active, S6 Edge, S6 Edge Plus, S7, S7 Active, S7 Edge, S8, S8 Active, S8 Plus, S9 and S9 Plus; Sonim XP58 and XP8.
And if you don’t happen to have any of the phones listed above, then don’t fret – Sprint will still lease the iPhone X to you for $20 a month without a trade in. This, of course, still beats every other carrier out there, which all charge at least $30 a month to lease the fancy iPhone.
The plan options that come with the lease also aren’t too bad, compared to the competition. Options start at $40 a month, which includes 2GB of high-speed data. And you have the option to upgrade to $70 a month if you want to also get Hulu, Tidal, HD video streaming and other perks.
But don’t forget that this sweet $5 deal is only a lease – you’ll have to pay off the full balance at the end of the 18-month contract unless of course, you choose to trade in and lease another new phone. With the new 2018 iPhone models due to be announced next month, you may want to hold off on this seemingly sweet deal.
