Sprint’s unlimited talk, text and data plan is about to get more expensive. The wireless carrier announced that the plan will jump from $60 per month to $70 per month starting October 16. Existing customers will be grandfathered in to the current price, but new customers will have to start paying up if they want the rare gem that unlimited data has become.

T-Mobile sure wants to be your carrier for the new iPhone 6s.

Having previously introduced attention-grabbing offers like Apple Music streaming which doesn’t take a byte out of your monthly data allowance, the Uncannier is now offering customers the chance to get their hands on a 16GB iPhone 6s for $125 less than its normal sales price of $649.

And outspoken CEO John Legere wants to make sure you know T-Mobile coverage is better than ever, too.

We’re less than one month away from the iPhone 6s being announced, and carriers are tripping over themselves and each other trying to offer the best terms for customer upgrades.

The latest carrier to throw its name in the ring is Sprint, which has just launched its new iPhone Forever plan, which lets users upgrade to the latest iPhone any time they want — without having to pay an upfront fee or experience a hike in rates.

T-Mobile is doing pretty hot lately, but it’s unfortunately at Sprint’s expense. While the latter carrier has been declining in market share for the past couple of years, it’s finally now in last place out of the four major U.S. wireless carriers. T-Mobile snatched the bronze model.

In the quarterly earnings call, Sprint said it had 57.7 million customers with a net gain of 675,000. T-Mobile, however, gained 2.1 million customers last quarter for a grand total of 58.9 million.
