Sprint will pay your early termination fees, buy your old phone and offer free Galaxy Tab 3… if you switch
T-Mobile might have been the first carrier to offer to pay your early termination fees but it is no longer the only one. Apparently Sprint had exactly the same idea and is willing to pay your early termination fees if you switch to its service. Aside from the time of duration, the deal is exactly the same as T-Mobile contract freedom offer. The deal runs between April 4th and May 8th and includes up $300 to trade-in your old phone, and a $350 for Visa gift card for every line successfully ported to Sprint, adding to a total of $650 savings. Plus, if you hurry you may get free Galaxy Tab 3.
Sprint Offer – How it works.
There are a few conditions, obviously, if you want to your early termination fees to be paid. In order to take advantage of the deal you need to register and upload your last bill on a special page provided by Sprint. You should know that the Visa card won’t arrive immediately. You may need to wait for it up to 12 weeks after your registration has been validated. That’s not all. You will have to be a Sprint customer for at least 45 days and moreover in good standing and up-to-date on your billing.
The deal will last hardly long enough to make a big difference in Sprint’s budget, at least in the long term, but it might be that last straw that undecided users need. After all, the $650 are a generous sum. And if you were considering switching to a different carrier anyway, why not take advantage of the promotion and hop on Sprint?
Just keep in mind that the deal is good only if you transfer your line over to one of Sprint’s new “Framily” plans. Aside from its weird name, the Framily service is actually quite interesting. It allows you to add up to 10 lines to your account regardless of whether the users are your relatives or friends. More importantly, each line is billed separately.
The plans start at $55 per month and include unlimited talk and text and 1 GB of data. Each new member of Framily reduces the cost by $5, however, the discount can’t be bigger than $30 per line. In other words, after you add six new lines, your bill goes down to $25 per month.
Along with covering early termination fees and cash for your old phone, Sprint offer free Galaxy Tab 3 if you sign up for Framily plan before June 12.
