Want a Better Deal?

The above is a quick and easy way to get a new iPhone 5.  However, if you’re willing to do a little work you can get a much better deal.  Here’s how:

  • If you are eligible for upgrade  you can get an iPhone 5 with a 2 year contract for around $199.  That’s with Verizon so check your carrier.
  • Sell your iPhone 4 or 4S on Ebay for more than $199.  They are running for a good bit more than that right now so you’ll probably get an overage.
