Hello, sim04mac. We would hate to lose you on a two-year contract issue. Why bother changing carriers when Sprint undoubtedly offers the best prices? No other airline makes the 2-year contract. We`re going to talk. We have just sent you a private message, please reply as soon as possible. Dano reports that Sprint`s decision to reintroduce two-year contracts and subsidized equipment prices that allow it is most likely a step to remove the carrier from its competitors. The strength of this plan remains to be seen, however, as airlines have pulled out of two-year contracts, with most Americans not seeming to like them very much. AT&T and Verizon have been offering installation plans in addition to two-year contracts for years, and both have found that customers` installation plans largely prefer two multi-year contracts. Sprint`s site again displays a contract option in addition to a monthly payment plan, a full-price purchase, and a "leasing," which is another way sprint owns the phone and you pay to keep it until you decide to buy a new device.
Sprint and AT&T have offered two-year contract options until Jan. 8. T-Mobile halted contracted phone sales in 2013 and Verizon said it would only offer existing contract customers starting in August last year. There are many ways for mobile operators to trick you into paying more than you think. But for the most part, a two-year contract is no longer one of them. Sprint was the last of the major U.S. airlines to permanently stop the option of choosing a two-year contract. But Mike Dano reports for Fierce Wireless that Sprint reintroduced two-year contracts just a month after the option was removed, supposedly to give users more choice on how they pay for their smartphones. Sprint`s sudden reintroduction of two-year contracts is an interesting step as it signed two-year contracts in early January with other high-tier carriers in the country. In January, it was reported that Sprint had stopped allowing new customers to purchase a subsidized phone and sign a two-year contract, although the carrier planned to continue offering contracts for tablets and additional phone lines and upgrades could continue to be offered "only on a reactive basis." As of January 8, January 1, smartphones subsidized by two-year contracts were no longer offered on the Sprint site. Claure, who revealed Sprint`s move in an interview with the Wall Street Journal, hinted that if Sprint drops two-year contracts, leasing phones or paying the full cost of the devices will be the only way to buy a new phone from Sprint.
The carrier said 51 percent of customers who bought a new phone in the last quarter used its rental option, where customers pay their devices in monthly installments and then trade when leasing is over, much like leasing a car. Sprint plans that might be worth it? Your unlimited plan is also $180/mo, but without the subsidized prices for phones. Is there another discount phone with a 2-year contract? I`ve been in the sprint for years and I`ve always followed that path. I wanted to update my phone and I don`t see this option anymore. .
