The iPhone 7 is finally here and October brings a wealth of iPhone 7 deals that can help you save on your new iPhone. There are a lot of trade-in iPhone 7 deals if you have a recent iPhone and there are many free iPhone 7 deals to look at.
Right now we are seeing free iPhone 7 deals and $649 off iPhone 7 Plus deals. There are a lot of catches you need to keep in mind — but for many users this is an excellent option.
You don’t need to switch carriers to get most iPhone 7 deals in October — which is a bit of a surprise. You do need to be at the end of a contract or have your current phone paid off to use these.
Right now at AT&T, Verizon, Sprint and T-Mobile you can get a free iPhone 7 or an iPhone 7 Plus for about $120. This only applies to the 32GB iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus at some carriers– so if you need more storage you will want to skip this or look at other options.
What’s the catch to free iPhone 7 deals?
Before we dive into the free iPhone 7 deals, you need to be aware of the catches involved.
You need to trade in a iPhone 6, 6 Plus, 6s or 6s Plus to get the free option. if you trade in an iPhone 5s, iPhone 5, iPhone 5c or iPhone SE you can get $400 in trade in credit. You must hand in an old phone in good condition.
Once this happens you agree to stay with that carrier for 24 months of credits to get the phone paid off. This is similar to a two year contract. Billing credits take two or three billing cycles to start so you are signing up or 26 to 27 months of service.
If you decide to leave or switch carriers you need to give the phone back and pay, or buy the phone outright. You will not get your old phone back if you cancel. This is especially important if you are thinking of switching to a carrier you don’t know about.
AT&T requires that you have DirecTV or U-Verse for this deal and that you switch, so keep that in mind.
If you miss a two year contract and know that you are going to stick it out with one of these carriers for two years or longer — this may be just waht you’ve been waiting for.

You should check the value of your trade in iPhone with Gazelle or a similar service to see how much you could get by selling it. Sometimes it makes more sense to trade or sell to another source and buy the iPhone 7 outright.
At many carriers you can hand them $300 to $400 that you get for selling your old phone as a downpayment and then make smaller monthly payments.
