Jun 08, 2021
david and david are

here

to tell you why you should stop buying phones from your wireless

carrier

except in rare circumstances the

deals

that wireless

carrier

s offer really aren't that great and you can actually save a lot of money by getting a prepaid plan and then buying a phone directly from the phone manufacturer or ebay or amazon or craigslist maybe uh

here

's why yeah sleight of hand right watch out for

deals

yeah let's take a look let's check out a deal let's check out a deal verizon let's do the math let's see if you're really getting a good deal let's start with t right now it's right before mother's day so these companies are obviously benefiting our moms by giving them the stuff free make sense free free stuff ok let's get down to one that caught my eye which is this samsung galaxy a12 for a dollar a month requires a 30m contract eses and you have to activate or maintain postpaid unlimited wireless at least 75 a month so my first thought when I saw this planned is this is a great phone sorry that's a great phone it's a dollar a month, but the full retail price is 179, so it's not like you're actually getting it. great deal here and the real kicker is you have to have a 75 bucks a month unlimited plan so lets do the math 75 bucks a month multiplied by 30 months is 2250 plus tax plus the 30 you are paying a buck a month for over 30 months is 2 295 for 30 months of cell phone service or you can buy b h's phone let's say for 170 which is where i saw it and you can buy all three years on t eight gigabyte prepaid plan great plan also unlimited just a lower high-speed data limit.

Many people who have unlimited plans don't really need the full limited plan because people are connected to wi-fi. Anyway, eight gigabytes is a lot. month eight is more than enough so that's three hundred dollars a year three more years the phone is one thousand eighty dollars and you're saving over a thousand dollars right there you have this option exactly over a thousand dollars cheaper to buy the phone and you get six more months would you rather have more cell phone service? same phone and as much data as you need and a thousand bucks in your pocket or this deal yeah let's make a deal with wayne brady and I'm pocketing the cash so maybe a t is the only provider that is maybe not leading with the best deals for mom that's wrong let's go to Verizon and see what they offer Apple iPhone 12.

David had an idea yeah so you know the new purple iPhone 12. Did Apple release a purple iPhone 12 just before Mother's Day? because purple is the second favorite color among women according to studies hmm maybe conspiracy conspiracy or just good marketing or none or none just gonna say i mean obviously yeah right oh could be a spring color no I know, that's what they said, oh, it sure captures the essence of spring, yeah, before mother's day, okay, so purple and buy one get one for up to a thousand bucks. This phone that we are going to see today is the 64-gigabyte Apple iPhone 12, the complete one.
carrier deals are a scam here s why
The retail price of this phone is 800, so you will get one for free according to Verizon. We're going to set this up real quick and fast forward through this part and you'll see what you're actually doing. to pay for this phone and then we'll do the math right to do it yeah did you see what happened there? So when we were picking a plan, all but the cheapest unlimited plans had a little thing on the top that said get up to 800 off your second device, which would imply you wouldn't get that with the lowest plan. cheap we chose, by the way, we're not stacking this video in our favor to make a point here. going back to pick the cheapest options we can and still compare price is here so verizon shady yeah this is our breakdown though 173.32 monthly payment you have to pay 112 dollars up front but you can get 20 off for month starting from the second month so we'll call this 153.32 we should also add that we didn't select the 17 month device protection which would just drive this cost much higher and we're going to talk about that to get the iPhone 12 from Verizon buy one get one deal you need to get an unlimited plan with two lines and then you get two phones one of them is free in the form of bill credits iPhone 12 retail price is $800 like we said $120 dollars a month for the cheapest unlimited two line plan is 280 for two years the cost of one the phone is eight hundred dollars so now we have a total of three thousand six hundred and eighty dollars for the two years for the two phones and the two plans then you also have to pay 112 up front so we're at a total of three thousand seven hundred and eighty four dollars that's a lot the alternative is to get the five gigabyte prepaid plan from verizon we both have this plan as an unlimited plan for that five gigabyte high speed data limit mobile hotspot included its really a good plan has a bit confusing pricing structure because of the loyalty discount over time you save money on this plan, but the bottom line of this plan is that it costs 13.50 plus the 1600 ish for the two new iPhones you just bought directly from Apple, giving you a total of 2947.92 which is a savings of about 800 the deal buy one get one free phone free but you can save 800 if you buy it yourself so let's talk about device protection because many people choose to get carrier insurance V erizon 17 lines per month and we also need to mention where you need to do it. buy the phones if not the carriers like we said at the beginning go to apple.com you can get the same monthly deal and you could be paying less per month the bottom line is that with verizon the carrier insurance brings your bill up to 187 dollars a month, which for 24 months is 4,600 to have insurance, a free phone, and the most basic unlimited plan that doesn't even have a lot of cool stuff in it, it's not that it's not that it's not a good plan, I mean you have what to shop like the most expensive place to get some great stuff or if you want to get apple insurance applecare plus which is amazing and the ability to upgrade to a new phone every year you'll save 1350 for two years that's 56 cheaper per month to go with a prepaid plan through verizon it's the same service no different towers it's that crazy same service save thirteen hundred dollars for two years fifty six dollars a month cheaper , yes, then your big day of the mother. buy one get one deal yes maybe even if five gigabytes isn't enough for you if you do the math and the 15 gigabyte plan is also cheaper in the long run yes you are saving 870 over two years yes with that plan yes then don't really buy your phone from your carrier yeah and especially if they're trying to give you a deal like a limited time offer especially don't buy it from your carrier because you know they're making that money on the plan they're not going to there's a reason they say you can't get this deal if you get this plan because then that would be a good deal yeah but you can get this deal with that plan you just have to buy the phone through apple or through ebay or on Amazon or someone else and then just get on the carrier's plan yeah and that's why you shouldn't buy phones directly from your carrier thanks for watching subscribe to get about seven percent of people nas who watch these videos. list up to nine percent high goals and leave a comment below with your thoughts on buying phones from wireless carriers or anything else
