Eastlink iPhone 6s Pre-Orders Launch with Monthly Instalment Plans

Eastlink has quietly launched iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s pre-orders, with this year again going with equipment instalment plans (EIPs) for Apple’s latest smartphone, similar to what they did last year with the iPhone 6. Customers will get their iPhone 6s pre-orders on launch day, September 25.

So in other words, upon approved credit, users will be able to get an iPhone 6s or iPhone 6s Plus for $0 up front, but just pay it off in monthly instalments as follows:

iPhone 6s

  • 16GB: $31.21
  • 64GB: $36.63
  • 128GB: $42.04

iPhone 6s Plus

  • 16GB: $36.63
  • 64GB $42.04
  • 128GB: $47.46

Matthew MacLellan, President, Eastlink Wireless, said in a statement “The best phones deserve the best network,” while also noted “Our customers can enjoy these remarkable new devices on our award-winning LTE network with lightning-fast data speeds, extensive coverage and savings on Nationwide plans – all backed by exceptional customer service from a local provider customers know and trust.”

You may recall Apple launched an iPhone Upgrade Program for U.S. customers, but don’t get your hopes up for it coming to Canada anytime soon.

Also, don’t get your hopes up Rogers, TELUS and Bell are going to implement these monthly instalment plans, because they already admitted they’re not ready to do so anytime in the near future.

    What is the difference between paying a equipment instalment plans (EIPs) and getting it subsidized with a monthly payment for the phone + the smartphone plan? I guess the only difference is the downpayment at the beggining?? Also, I guess that doesn’t include the Apple Care plan and doesn’t allow you to ALWAYS get the newest Apple iPhone each 12 months like Apple does in the US ?

    Well for starters, it’s easier for the majority of people to pay $30-$35/month instead of shelling out $600-$700 or $800 dollars when you get your first bill statement. This program is available to U.S. Apple Store customers & I just read a story in The Province asking Bell, Telus & Rogers if they had plans to introduce such a program for Canadians. The answer? A resounding NO!!!!!! Canadians need to start protesting or boycotting these companies. Maybe then, they’ll FINALLY understand Canadians are fed up with their business tactics!

    You are correct & not one of the douche nozzle CEO’s at the Pig3 will even consider the Apple model. Canadians need to revolt against these @$$h0l€ companies! Sure wish I lived in Ontario or Quebec. I’d say the U.S. too but the cons outweigh way the pros.

  • Patrick Ducharme

    … The issue is that the Pig3 knows that It won’t happen because people are addicted to their smartphones and they will keep their high priced plans :((

  • Patrick Ducharme

    Last time Canadians “revolt” against the Pig3, the CRTC ended the 3Y contracts, but jack the price of each plan by AT LEAST 20$ more per month, and double the subsidy price !

    They are so greedy bast@ards!

  • 1His_Nibs1

    Well the CRTC should have punished them for doing that. Canadians need to be more like the U.S. & bitch & protest. Canadians are far too passive & that’s why we continually get the shaft!
