Outright iPhone Purchase or Plan
Looking for suggestions on how to acquire a new phone, in the cheapest possible way.
I currently have two options: Either purchase a new phone outright (iPhone 11 Pro) and remain on the same free monthly plan, or recontract my wifes service, and I use the handset. Her phone is still OK and not in need of an upgrade.
Upgrading my wifes plan is going to cost an additional $62pm over 24 months or $41 over 36 months.
In this case, this makes the cost of the phone $1,499 over either term.
Can anyone see any flaws in my calculations? The best deal right now would be to recontract my wifes phone and pay the extra, rather than fork out $2,000. Even a $2,000 purchase over 36 months is $55 or $83 for 2 years.
