Prepaid Phones on Sale This Week: Apr 29 - May 5

Welcome to the latest edition of Prepaid Phone News' Prepaid Phones on Sale this Week feature. Here are the best current deals on prepaid and unlocked phones that I've found online and in stores.

This week's Deal of the Week is the the Phone 6s 32 GB which is available at the subsidized price of $299.99 from multiple sources for various prepaid carriers:
The 32 GB 6s, which costs $449.99 unlocked from Apple, features a 4.7 inch, 1334x750 px screen; Apple A9 SOC, 12 MP main camera, 5 MP front facing camera, Touch ID fingerprint sensor, NFC with Apple Pay and the increasingly rare headphone jack.

The $299.99 iPhones for prepaid carriers are all SIM locked. AT&T Prepaid and Cricket will unlock their phones after 6 months continuous paid use on their services. Boost Mobile and the TracFone brands (Simple Mobile, Straight Talk, Total Wireless and TracFone) require 12 months service before they will unlock their phones. If you want an unlocked phone right now and don't want to pay Apple $450 or a pay a prepaid carrier for six or 12 months of service, your best bet is propably eBay where sellers with 99%+ feedback ratings have the 64 GB 6s for $351.49 new or $214.99 refurbished.

If unlocked, the 6s is a "universal" phone that works on all four US national carriers and nearly every carrier worldwide. All 6s phones support 2G GSM 850, 900, 1800, 1900 Mhz; 3G UMTS 850, 900, 1700, 1900, 2100 MHz; and LTE bands 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 7, 8, 12, 13, 17, 18, 19, 20, 25, 26, 27, 28, 29, 38, 39, 40, 41. The AT&T, Cricket and factory unlocked version (model A1633) also supports LTE band 30.  VoLTE and WiFi calling work with all 6s phones on all carriers that support those features.

  1. question: some of the phones currently locked to sprint/oost/virgin mobile can run on t-mobile if unlocked. does anyone think that the merger will result in those phones, via software update, being made able to run on both current networks?

    1. Who knows, but I wouldn't invest in a locked flagship at this point.

      Just get an unlocked multi-carrier device like the Moto G5/E5 Plus.

    2. Many Sprint and Boost phones will already work on T-Mobile if unlocked. For future proofing buy phones that support all of T-Mobile and Sprint's LTE bands 2,4,12,25,26 and 41. Plus bands 66 and 71 when phones supporting them are available.

    3. Dennis, does the Universal unlocked Android One Moto X4 32 GB LTE Android phone $249 with activation (reg $399) at Project Fi fit that description of supporting all of T-Mobile and Sprint's LTE bands 2,4,12,25,26 and 41? If no what's missing and how much of an issue is it that band "x" is missing?

      Delete
    4. Yes, the Moto X4 Android One supports all the bands you mentioned plus band 66

  2. $300 for an iPhone that is 3 generations removed and held ransom to a particular service is some how a deal?

    I wouldn't pay $200 for an iPhone 6s and certainly not one strangled by 32GB memory, so it is hard to believe that anyone in their right mind would pay $450.

    1. A Droid, dissing iPhones. How original.
      A new 6S is a bargain at $299; it performs really well. Almost no noticeable difference in real life performance compared to the 7 (we own both).
      AT&T doesn't block their prepaid phones from use with MVNOs, so it's not a hostage.
      32GB is no problem for almost everyone when they use iCloud for picture, video and music sync and set it up to optimize storage on the phone. Former Droids can even use Google Photos app for unlimited photo storage.
      For people who can't count iPhones, the 6S is two 'generations removed,' not three.

    2. it's actually 8 generations removed... 7 then 7s then 8 then 8s then 9 then 9s then 10 aka X and now 10s right around the corner... that's an 8 year old phone for $300.! people will really buy anything as long as it has the apple logo on it huh?

      Delete
    3. your so right... the iPhone 6 was being designed and manufactured in 2013 as a 2014 model... that's 6 years old! this iphone 6s should be given away for FREE with an air time card! Apple is literally laughing at all of you buying this for $300.!

      Delete
    4. The 6s was released Sept 25, 2015, 2 years, 7 months ago.

      Delete
    5. The 6s is still better than most New Androids save for Samsung. In my humble opinion.

    6. iPhone 6S outperforms Samsung S7 with the Exynos 8890 SoC by 2.1% on AnTuTu, and hangs in there with the Snapdragon 820 installed in other S7 (2.8% difference).
      The A9 in the 6S was the fastest SoC in the world when it was introduced. On AnTuTu it almost doubles the A8 from the iPhone 6 in rankings.
      The 6s runs the latest iOS 11.3.1 very smoothly, with no lag. It also has an upgraded camera, 12 vs 8mp on iPhone 6.

    7. FYI, Droids, the iPhone 8 and X are the same generation.
      X just has the OLED screen with FaceID. Guts are the same.
      The 8, 8 Plus are slightly faster.
      X was a delayed intro due to production/supply, not design issues.

    8. apple hasseen phone sales decline, but it does not matter. not only are they grossly over priced, with obscene profit margins, but they actually make more money from all those cult memebers paying for the monthly fee for icloud . kind of like the old kodak model where they did not really care whose camera that you bought , as long as you got your film and developng through them.

    9. Keep up. Apple announced yesterday that iPhone Q2 sales are up everywhere: China, Japan, USA, Europe, etc. China and Japan grew >20%.

      Revenue Grew 16 Percent Y/Y and EPS Grew 30 Percent to New March Quarter Records for Apple.

      Apple’s market share grew 0.9 points (from 14.7 percent to 15.6 percent) last quarter, thanks to iPhone gains. The newest iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus, and iPhone X are chugging along as well, with Apple specifically noting that the iPhone X was the most popular model each week in the quarter. Number one iPhone in China.

      Apple gained on Samsung. iPhones are up 2.8% year/year, and Samsung is down 2.4%.

  3. I would be very happy to pay $200 for an iPhone 6s.

    It is funny how someone thinks that 32GB RAM is being "strangled". My first computer had not 32GB, not 32MB, but 64kB of total RAM. That's right, half a million times less memory then what you are complaining about and it was amazing what could be done with that C64...

    Perhaps you could list a few phone apps that simply cannot function in any shape or form when limited to only 32GB of memory.

  7. Is that iPhone 6S unlockable thru att website as non att customer?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. You can still do that if the phone qualifies. AT&T Prepaid phones need to meet the service requirement before you can cancel plan and unlock via website as non-customer. You could also ask an AT&T Postpaid customer to unlock it for you. If they trade phones with you for 40 (?ck) days, they can get it unlocked sooner.

  8. As of April 25, the Pentagon ordered that ZTE Huawei cellphones, hotspots and related products be removed from its stores worldwide, according to Pentagon spokesman Major Dave Eastburn.

    “These devices may pose an unacceptable risk to the department’s personnel, and mission,” Eastburn said.

  10. Charter customers should consider waiting until 6/30/18 to buy a phone. Charter launches their wireless service, with a pricing model identical to Xfinity Mobile. They may offer some great intro deals on phones, like Xfinity did.
    For those who say: 'just another MVNO,' a recent survey found 40% of cable customers would like to get wireless phone service in the bundle. Verizon lost the most subscribers to Xfinity's 577,000 new adds last quarter.

  13. Dennis- please help! long time PPPN reader and commenter, here... Do you have any clues as to why my Moto G4 Play phones are no longer working as phones? I have a Consumer Cellular G4 Play AND a US Cellular G4 Play; I have a Mint Sim plan AND now a BOOM Mobile Red plan, and no combination of SIM plus G4 play will work for voice calls! The sims both work fine in other phones.

    Honestly, I'm about to give up on my cherished Moto collection. I have 3 g4 Plays- the two I mentioned, as well as a verizon version. The US Cellular one is brand new, so its GPS still works, but the other two g4 Plays have the GPS antenna problem detailed on XDA forums. Turns out I actually NEED the GPS function. I'm really about ready to give up on Motos completely, but there's not many affordable options for factory bootloader unlock support out there! I'm also done with android, and only willing to run lineage OS now. So, any suggestions for an affordable unlocked universal radio handset that I can run lineage OS on? cheers!

    1. I recently wrote a post listing all universal unlocked phones: Master List of "Universal Unlocked" Phones That Work on All Four US Networks | Prepaid Phone News. I did not research which ones were bootloader unlockable and have official LOS ROMs but I believe all the Nexus and Pixels and most of the Motos do. If you want to avoid Moto, you might want to consider a used Nexus or Pixel. Even a Nexus 5 whould outperform the G4 Play or E4.

  14. They Moto G4 Play seemed to tick all the boxes for me- so much so, that I've bought 3 of them! However, the GPS antenna disconnection issue is present in two of my three sets; only the new one I recently took out of the box gets ANY GPS fix. Its a well known and discussed issue: https://forum.xda-developers.com/g4-play/help/gps-fix-t3535129 so if you actually need a working GPS as I do, please be advised- avoid this model! I'm not sure if it affects any of the other universal motos, but I guess I better research that before looking for a replacement for my Moto g4 Play collection...
