You can find a cheap iPhone 7 deal in the US from Verizon, AT&T, T-Mobile and Sprint in July now that Apple's newest smartphone is nine months old.
We're also coming up to the 10th anniversary of the original iPhone, and in that time, it seems like everyone has owned an iPhone. That means US carriers are more likely to discount the handset.
Of course, you won't be able to buy the iPhone 7 on sale through the official Apple Store, and you never will, according Apple's very on-point history. It just doesn't do cheap iPhone deals.
Your best choice is to go with one of the US carriers and either pay $0 down or pay very close to it. Sprint, for example, has one of the best plans we've found and it costs $67.09 per month for 2GB of data. At $82.09 per month, you can step it up to an iPhone 7 unlimited data plan.
Gone are the days of buying an iPhone on-contract for the plan. Now it's all about splitting up device payments over the course of 24 to 30 months. The good news is that you can get these deals today, and you don't have to wait for those inevitable Black Friday deals to pick in later this year.
It's especially rewarding if you're a new customers to the network and want to avoid those nasty Early Termination or ETF fees from your former carrier.
Best iPhone 7 deals on Verizon
Finding a cheap iPhone 7 on Verizon has been difficult because it pairs the most popular US smartphone with America's No 1. network. But there are two deals that give you a rare Verizon discount.
First, Verizon is offering $100 off the iPhone 7 with 128GB or 258GB of storage. It's an attempt to get you to upgrade from the entry-level 32GB version, and that's great news. The 128GB iPhone 7 on Verizon at the same price as 32GB.
Even better, this deal applies to both the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus. Okay, it does come with string attached: this Verizon deal requires a new line of service with the carrier's Unlimited plan for this instant savings offer. But you were probably going to get that anyway if you are a new sign-up.
Second, Verizon is offering a $650 Visa prepaid card if you're new to the carrier and start a device payment plan with them. Note: You'll also have to trade in your old phone and port your number from a rival carrier, so this deal isn't for existing Verizon customers.
Verizon's time-limited iPhone 7 deal really helps if you're on the hook for Early Termination Fees from another network. Verizon is willing to pay them off for you. If you don't have ETF fees, you can still get $350 out of the offer.

iPhone 7 deals from Sprint
The iPhone 7 deal from Sprint is a lot like the Buy One, Get One Free offer from AT&T, except the carrier won't try to lure you into signing up for DirecTV.
