Apple iPhone 6 Goes On Sale: Pricing Details

Carriers and retailers have laid out their plans to sell you Apple's new iPhones.

of $25 (16 GB version). The 64 GB model costs $30 per month and the 128 GB model costs $35 per month.

After two years, customers can turn the device in and receive the next-generation iPhone (iPhone 6s, 6s Plus, perhaps?) under the same terms. Additionally, Sprint said the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus will be eligible for a new Simply Unlimited plan that offers unlimited talk, text, and data for just $50 per month for a single line. Sprint is also offering Sprint Easy Pay, which is similar to AT&T's installment plan above.

T-Mobile
T-Mobile doesn't sign any of its customers to a new contract any more. Instead, it offers T-Mobile Simple Choice plans, which break apart the device cost and the service plan cost. The device cost is defrayed over monthly installments, just like AT&T and Sprint.

T-Mobile will let you walk out of stores on Friday, September 19, with a 16 GB iPhone 6 with $0 followed by 24 monthly payments of $27.08. T-Mobile is asking for a downpayment of $99 for the 64 GB model and $199 for the 128 GB model, and will charge the same $27.08 monthly installment fee for each. The pricer iPhone 6 Plus is being offered for a $0, $99, and $199 down followed by 24 monthly payments of $31.25 for the 16 GB, 64 GB, and 128 GB models, respectively. After 24 months, T-Mobile customers own their device and can do anything they want with it. If they choose to leave T-Mobile, they have to pay off the balance of the device cost.

Verizon Wireless
Last, but not least, we have Verizon Wireless. Verizon calls its monthly installment plans Verizon Edge. Verizon hasn't provided a full breakdown yet of what its monthly costs will be, but at least it gave us a starting point.

Verizon will let its customers buy the 16 GB iPhone 6 for $0 down followed by 20 monthly payments of $32.49. Those prices should go up to approximately $37.50 and $42.50 for the 64 GB and 128 GB models.
