AT&T is introducing a couple of new prepaid iPhone deals on their $45/month plans, sources tell us. It will be offering a 32GB iPhone 6s for $344.99, and an iPhone 6s Plus with the same storage for $444.99 …
Both deals include the first month of service on a $45 plan so they are essentially $300 for the iPhone 6s and $400 for the 6s Plus. Those deals are competitive with T-Mobile and Virgin PrePaid plans whose service isn’t often as far reaching as AT&T’s. Virgin charges $450 and $550 for iPhone 6S and 6S plus.
The company currently only offers two prepaid iPhones – the older iPhone 6, at $244.99, and the SE at $191.94, neither of which includes the free month’s service.
A prepaid plan offers the flexibility of no annual contract, allowing customers to start and stop coverage as needed, and also no credit check.
The addition of the 6s will allow customers needing or wanting a prepaid deal to opt for a somewhat newer model.
The rollout is expected as early as today.
