The carrier wars in the US are heating up as we head further into the winter, and that’s generally good news for consumers. Verizon is currently adding 2GB of data for new and current subscribers that upgrade to certain plans over the next few weeks. T-Mobile is targeting switchers by offering AT&T subscribers that jump carriers the chance to buy the 128GB iPhone 6s at the price of the 16GB model and save as much as $125 on financed accessories including Beats headphones and the Apple Watch.

9to5Mac Happy Hour
For current or future Verizon subscribers, here’s what you’ll want to know. Starting now through January 6th, the carrier will add 2GB of monthly data for each phone upgraded or added that uses an XL or XXL data plan.
Those are Verizon’s 12GB/$80 and 18GB/$100 plans effectively making these plans 14GB and 20GB for the same monthly price. The offer applies for up to 10 lines and sticks around as long as the upgraded or new phone is on the XL or XXL plan. Data can also be shared with others on the same family plan including tablets.
Meanwhile, T-Mobile is doing the usual thing and targeting switchers. AT&T customers that move lines to T-Mobile can pick up the 128GB iPhone 6s at the price of the $200 cheaper 16GB model. The entry level storage is generally a bad experience, and the offer makes the high-end model a better deal than the mid-tier 64GB model. The offer starts tomorrow and runs through December 13th.
T-Mobile notes that its current $200 credit promo for Sprint switchers runs through December 6th, and a deal for Verizon customers moving to T-Mobile will come next week.
Finally, T-Mobile is also offering AT&T switchers discounts up to $125 off of financed accessories including Beats headphones, Apple Watches, Guitar Hero Live for iOS, and much more. The offer also extends to AT&T’s GoPhone and Cricket Wireless subscribers as well. Read all the fine print here.
