New releases and announcements from Apple always leave us thinking. “I gotta have it”. Its fun to stay caught up with the latest technology and have the hottest new gadgets, but due to those pesky mobile contracts, we aren’t always eligible to get the devices we want at an affordable price!
Anticipating numerous amounts of people asking this very question, the three main iPhone carriers in the U.S. make it is very simple to check whether or not you can receive a shiny new iPhone at a discounted price. The discounted prices, of course, require the signing of a new two-year contract with your mobile provider. On Apple’s website, there is an easy-to-use tool that determines your eligibility. After providing some information and credentials, the service then connects to you online account with your carrier and displays pricing information for all available iPhone models.
Alternatively, AT&T and Verizon also offer a similar feature through the account management pages of their sites. AT&T also has an iOS app that works in the same way for added convenience.
Before upgrading it is always good to check individual eligibility before waiting in enormous lines outside crowded stores on release day. This will save any hassle with sales associates and will make your upgrade quick, easy – and best of all – cheaper!
