In its continued efforts to surpass T-Mobile's customer numbers and regain the U.S. wireless industry's bronze medal position, Sprint has been "simplifying choice", discounting plans of all types, striking device exclusivity deal after deal, offering sweet music streaming freebies and partnering with Best Buy for some of the craziest promotions on the hottest phones. You can also choose to pay the phone off at 18 months and keep it for life or continue paying whatever is left on the phone for an additional six months.
Customers who prefer to bypass a credit check with Sprint, can get an instant discount on the same "value menu" of smartphones, on a Sprint Forward prepaid plan: For entry-level mobile phones, customers get 50 percent off the suggested retail price. However, if you buy something non-iPhone or non-Galaxy, you can pay $5 per month to be able to upgrade every year.
When you're upgrading to a new device, it can be hard to know if it's a device you'll want to keep for a few years, especially if you haven't held it and played with it yet.
"Sprint Flex is the ultimate option for consumers who want the latest smartphone at our most competitive prices with maximum flexibility", said Marcelo Claure, Sprint President and CEO.
For higher-end devices, customers pay 25 percent off the suggested retail price. This option is aimed at people trying to build their credit.
