U.S. residents can now preorder for the iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Plus for $799 and $899, respectively. However, here's how to get a free iPhone 15 from AT&T, T-Mobile, and Verizon with eligible trade-in. For example, new and existing Verizon customers can get a free iPhone 15 or iPhone 15 Plus with activation. To claim this offer, trade-in any iPhone in any condition and open a new line on Verizon's Unlimited Ultimate plan. In terms of phone deals, this is one of the best available right now. 

Your rebate will appear as credits on your monthly billing statements over 36-months. Another standout trade-in deal, existing Verizon customers get up to $830 off the new iPhone 15 or up to $930 off the iPhone 15 Plus with activation on the Unlimited Plus plan. 

Not to be outdone, T-Mobile takes up to $1,000 off any iPhone 15 series phone with trade-in on T-Mo's Go5G Plus or Go5G Next. If you net the highest trade-in value for your old phone, you'll get a free iPhone 15 (valued at $799) and iPhone 15 Plus ($899) or iPhone 15 Pro ($999). Similarly, you can get a free iPhone 15 via AT&T's preorder trade-in offer. Get up to $830 off and activate your new iPhone 15 on an eligible AT&T Unlimited plan.
