Sharp Move, Apple

Apple looks to boost iPhone sales in stores with new pre-paid & month-to-month plans

Apple Stores will soon stock up on AT&T GoPhone pre-paid activation kits and SIM cards, and stores will use the existing T-Mobile SIM cards for customers that will choose T-Mobile pre-paid plans. Apple will begin training its store employees on the new pre-paid and month-to-month iPhone sales practices in the coming weeks. Sales staff will promote AT&T’s $60 per month pre-paid plan (with 2.5GB of internet data and unlimited talk and text) to those seeking AT&T plans, while the stores will offer $50/month (1GB LTE data) and $70/month (5GB LTE data) unlimited data plans to customers seeking T-Mobile devices. The activations must be done at the time of purchase in Apple Stores and those devices will be unable to be returned to Apple for a refund.

LTE and T-Mobile. Whoa. I’ll have to think about this when the larger-screen iPhones come out.

This is the kind of thing Apple has needed. I’ve said so since 2010: The Photo Foretelling Apple’s Doom.

This will really help expand their market and might even snag me later this year.

Well done, Apple.
