Apple’s new iPhone SE is a long overdue update that takes the iPhone 8’s design and adds modern iPhone 11 features, all while keeping a $399 starting price that’s several hundreds of dollars cheaper than the iPhone 11’s $699 entry point. If you’re looking to maximize your savings, buying the phone is just the first step. To really get your saving on, you may want to consider switching to a prepaid carrier.
Prepaid carriers, such as Metro by T-Mobile, Cricket, Boost Mobile and Visible, use the networks of the major providers — T-Mobile, AT&T, Sprint and Verizon. While they lack some of the extra features like free Netflix, HBO or Apple Music, these plans are often priced significantly less than the traditional carrier offering.
