Getting a brand new iPhone for free sounds too good to be true. But thanks to a new promotion from AT&T, it’s isn’t.
You can now get a 5.8-inch iPhone XS with 64GB of storage from AT&T for free on a qualifying installment agreement. Normally, it’s $30 a month for the same iPhone XS model. Of course, there are the usual caveats associated with the installment agreement offer.
What’s the Catch?
But that’s pretty standard for any carrier offer. And even taking the best deals on iPhone XS installment agreements into account, you can’t beat free.
AT&T will cover the full price of the iPhone XS — $900 in all — as bill credits applied in equal amounts over 30 months. It does take three billing cycles for the credits to kick in, but don’t worry, you’ll receive “catch-up” credits once they do.
Once you’re on the installment agreement, you’ll need to stick with AT&T for its duration. If you don’t, you’ll have to cover the full price of the device.
Still, for an iPhone that isn’t even two years old, it’s a great deal.
That’s especially true since the iPhone XS still packs flagship-level features, even by today’s standards. Its A12 Bionic chipset can keep up with the best Android handsets today, for example.
