If you’re an AT&T customer and have been thinking about switching to T-Mobile, now might be the time. The Un-carrier is offering the 128GB version of the iPhone 6S for the same price as the 16GB model if you switch to T-Mobile. That’s a savings of $200.
This deal is the third part of the Un-carrier Unwrapped holiday promotion that T-Mobile has been running. The carrier already offered Simple Choice customers three months of unlimited LTE and gave Sprint customers $200 per line for switching carriers. Because the $200 savings comes in the form of a bill credit, though, it could take up to 90 days to realize those savings.

On top of the iPhone 6S deal, AT&T customers can also get up to half off T-Mobile’s in-store accessories for switching to the un-carrier. And notably, this includes the more expensive items like smartwatches and Bluetooth speakers. This means that you could grab a JBL Flip Bluetooth speaker for $50 ($50 savings) or a Fitbit Charge for $75 ($75 savings). Unfortunately, you won’t be able to use the full discount on the Apple Watch since the promotion is limited to $250 or a savings of $125. So if you want to buy an Apple Watch, you can still save $125, just not the full 50 percent. The only caveat is that you will need to finance your accessory purchases.
Now if you happen to have a termination fee and/or a balance due with AT&T, T-Mobile has you covered with its Carrier Freedom deal. You can get up to $650 per line to cover those costs when you trade in your current phone when switching to T-Mobile.
As for plans, T-Mobile is offering four lines with unlimited 4G LTE data for only $45 per month per line. That deal works by giving you the 4th line for free when you sign up for three lines. The first two cost $140 per month, and the third line adds an additional $40 per month. The fourth line is free, so the total comes to $180 per month for all four lines.
T-Mobile continues to make bold moves with deals such as this. The carrier recently announced Binge On, which lets you stream 24 different video services without them counting towards your monthly data allotment. These include Netflix, Hulu, and HBO Go. T-Mobile also announced the addition of eleven more music services to its Music Freedom deal, which lets you stream 44 different services without counting towards your monthly data.
