iphone 6s plus almost dead.

229 19 June 15, 2020 at 03:06 PM
I'm a 70 yr old lady who has had this iphone 6s plus for many years, with only 16 gbs. The memory is almost out so i have to delete apps then it will stay put for a few more months. I like the size of the phone and think Iphone 11 would be a good choice. I'm trying to find out the cheapest way to get a new iphone 11. I'm on Boom Mobile which uses Verizon towers, so i cant take advantage of tmobiles great deal they have now.

I chatted with Apple today and they can offer me $100 for my old phone and a total of $599 after that for a new I-11 phone.

Is there anything better out there, or should i wait a little longer.Thank you for all help you can give me. Smilie

Not much in the way of sales and that's a fair trade in for device that old. That said, Verizon towers are near identical to Sprint towers, which tmobile just acquired and synced with their network. They will give you a free sim card and hot spot to test out service in your area before you buy. I'm not a rep, just a very satisfied customer. I'm all in for 5g so we can finally break away from Comcast internet, haha. T mobile had the best I phone deals and you can take advantage because you'll use the legacy Sprint infrastructure.

The other thing to consider is that only the latest model of phones are that expensive. The 7plus is actually what my main work phone was for years and still holds up with today's apps (plus it starts with 64 gb and is about $300 last I checked). Just wanted to offer that the latest and greatest is usually just marketing and an iterative upgrade from "last year's model". The xs max is my current phone and the 11 wasn't worth the shiny price tag for the minimal upgrades.

Thanks so much. I'm checking this out now. Is the Apple store the cheapest/ best place to buy a new unlocked phone. I'm nervous to buy a used one on ebay etc. Apple has a refurbished X 64 gb for $559. But i could get a new 11 for that price trading in my 6S+

Why don't you get a iphone 8 plus instead? It is way better than 7 plus. It is the same size as your 6 plus phone.

How is sprint service in your home/area. You can trade in an iPhone 6s in any condition and get an 11 free (with 18 month contract). The cheapest plan is $60/month for an individual.

Try Swappa. I have purchased many phones from them with no problems. They have iphones.
