Competition between carriers is a very important element of the market – it not only prompts the networks to improve their products but it’s also beneficial to us, plain customers, who can take advantage of various promotions and deals. Sprint’s latest promo called “Cut Your Bill in Half” is aimed specifically at Verizon and AT&T customers. Want to know how to cut your AT&T or Verizon bill in half? Sprint seems to have an answer.
Sprint helps to cut your cell phone bill in half.
The promotion goes live this Friday, December 5th, and is targeting subscribers of two of the biggest US carriers – AT&T and Verizon. The whole process is very simple and basically comes down to you uploading a copy of your current bill to Sprint’s website or bringing it to Sprint store.
Once you do that, Sprint will offer you a plan that includes unlimited talk, text and a data tier that “most closely matches the data allowance in your current monthly rate plan. Moreover, the network will also help you pay early termination fees or installment bill balance – customers will receive Visa Prepaid card for up to $350 per line to cover all the costs.
Sounds great, doesn’t it? However, before you decide to switch to Sprint, there a few things you should know. First, you will need to turn in your old handset and buy a new phone either at full retail price or via the company’s Easy Pay installment plan. It looks like there is on-contract option is off limits. You will have 30 days to turn in the phones or you will have to pay a $200 “non-return phone charge.” Sprint may also prioritize the traffic of users who are paying full price for data.
These minor disadvantages aside, the new promotions seems to be quite an interesting option for Verizon and AT&T customers who don’t mind joining Sprint for the ride. Paying half of what you paid before is not something you dismiss without having second thoughts. The question is whether Sprint employees will be able to keep track of all the differently-priced plans. Hopefully they will manage and the plan won’t end up as a major disaster because that would be a shame.
