T-Mobile: Your T-Mobile options are straightforward—you’ll pay the device off over 24 months. The 32GB model will cost you nothing up front, and monthly installments cost $30.42. For the 128GB model, you’ll pay $160 up front and then $30 per month in installments. And for the 256GB version, you’ll pay $310 up front and $30 per month in installments. Don’t forget T-Mobile’s $20 SIM Starter Kit, which is required for new devices.
Verizon: Not to be outdone, Verizon has priced their iPad Pros to beat what AT&T is offering. Under a two-year contract, the 32GB iPad Pro costs $530 up front, the 128GB version costs $680, and the 256GB version costs $830. If you’d prefer Verizon’s Device Payment plan, you can pay monthly installments of $30.41 (32GB), $36.66 (128GB), or $42.91 (256GB).
