PSA - Sprint offering upgrade credit

This could be looked at as a signal that the early LTE phones are on the way or Sprint is trying to clear out its WiMax inventory.

 

Sprint will begin offering select upgrade eligible customers a $50 or $75 instant discount to entice them to pick up a new phone and sign a new two-year contract. The offer, which is apparently set to run from March 23rd through April 27th, will not be able to be used toward the purchase of an iDEN device or an iPhone.

I wonder if this means that the G-Nex won't be out until the 27th. Or maybe they are willing to give $50-75 extra to get customers to upgrade to the first wave of LTE devices since they have all the next gen devices on the horizon.

I saw this, too, and mentioned it in the G-Nex thread. I just wonder if they are using this to clear inventory on wimax phones and the G-Nex will not be released until after the promotion. Or, If they will release the G-Nex during the promotion and allow people to get this deal with the G-Nex (would be nice!).

With this promo running toward 4/27 and the Sprint GNex (Data Storm) contest ending 4/5 with winners announced around 4/15, it could happen.

 

Agreed. That would surly make a lot of people happy.

If Sprint wants to move wimax inventory why not just do a BOGO free like you see tmobile and verizon do all the time?

If this article is true, then the Nexus will be released on April 1st. Yeah I know April Fools day, my first thought too, but if you Google Sprint and April 1st, it seems that Sprint has done this in the past. So, as legion mentioned above, with the contest ending that same week. I too believe that the nexus is out in April. But will Sprint have a few areas to take advantage of the LTE Nexus is another question.

 

This still falls in line with my Nostradamus prediction of April/May for Nexus LTE and the Note for June/July. mwuahahahaha :secret:

You forget my friend, Hesse isn't going to let anything go without any revenue stream. 99 cents maybe, but not free.

You may be right, but I thinking more toward the middle of April at the earliest to coincide with the winners announcement, but buy the end of April for sure.

 

What does ol Nostra say about December 21st?

Speaking of which, wasn't there another device not too long ago on Sprint that had a promotion similar to this contest. Was it the Echo? EVO 3D?, Can't remember, but I do remember that folks were given the device to go around the country and take photos, blog about it before the phone came out I think. Well the phone came out before the contest ended, this may be history repeating itself again.

 

As for Dec 21, Nosty (or as s4gru calls him, Nexty) has a one way ticket to Pago Pago. He hears that Sprint is setting up a NV tower there soon. lol

I have always wanted to go to Pago Pago. Largely because of where in the world is carmen sandiego. American samoa deserve some sprint network vision love too!

 

I apologize if this format kind of wonky. I am responding via voice commands on my epic 4 g touch. This allows me to dictate to sprint 4 g rollout updates while driving. I love multitasking.

 

Oops! 10 and 2, 10 and 2!

That link had a 1.2 Ghz dual core processor and 5MP camera in the description. Doesn't look like the G-Nex+.

I'm confused. You saying that isn't a galaxy nexus in the photo or that the specs are different. Looking at Google and wikipedia's website, it looks fine as well as the processor and camera specs, or am I missing. is there a Galaxy nexus Plus model?

There were rumors going around that when the Galaxy Nexus came to Sprint, it would have a 1.5 Ghz processor and 8 MP camera and be called the Galaxy Nexus+. The stats in the photo are the same as the Verizon version, which I can tell you from firsthand experience is a very nice phone.

Ahh Gotcha, Yeah would have been nice for a updated spec phone. I feel the same way about the Note, hoping it will come with more memory and the Exynos processor but it won't happen.

 

Coming from GSM to CDMA is definately possible for the Note to have a new processor when it gets here. CDMA to CDMA like the Nexus is less likely.

Remember, this is for targeted customers only. You cannot call in for this. Make sure your email address is correct on Sprint.com. Also, if you are on a discounted plan like SERO, I would be very surprised if you get the offer. This will most likely be for those that provide a substantial revenue stream to Sprint.

This is the second time that SERO resurfaces in posts i read this week. Although I helped in recreating the SERO FAQ for HowardForums a long while back, I thought it died out. I myself upgraded to the newer plans at the time. Come to find out this week that some are still on that plan. I certainly didn't think that you could place a smartphone like the EVO or Photon on it but it so happens that some did. Man I miss that plan.

SERO comes in three different flavors ($30,$40 and $50) now so you can add just about any type of phone as long as you upgrade to the right SERO plan.. I'm not an expert on SERO, perhaps someone else can chime in and correct me if I'm wrong.

AFAIK, that's correct. Roughly it is $30 for feature phones, $40 for smartphones, and $50 for 4G phones and iPhones.

 

But I could be wrong. I don't sell phones... I just support the network side.

This is my understanding. It went round and round in forums when the iPhone came out. I took a lot of heat from iPhoniacs when I told them that Sprint was going to charge $50 to SERO members for the iOS privellege.

 

Some of those SERO people can be downright crazy. I was told I was jealous, I was told I was stupid, I was told that I should shut up.

 

In the end, I was right. And that was deeply satisfying.

    • ...and I just this morning realized you meant Cumberland, MD.  It threw me because there's an Ashby in Cumberland County, VA, which I'm far more familiar with. - Trip
    • I don't have anything solid to offer on Cumberland, but I came down US-15 today and the water tower site in Weber City is now up and running with B2/12/4/71 (035ACCxx), I believe I saw new T-Mobile antennas on the tower at Sprouses Corner which I will try to confirm on Saturday (definitely not running if they're there), and I believe I may have connected to something that got converted in Farmville.  By process of elimination, my guess is Lancer Park, but I hope to find out tomorrow or Saturday. So upgrades are clearly coming.  You may want to see if your local government officials can tell you anything.  Probably not, but can't hurt to ask. - Trip
    • Interesting twist.  Today, I took off for southern Virginia and had my T-Mobile B71 phone (Revvlry on Android 10) and I noticed the GPS was bad as compared to my other two devices on SCP on the dash.  Couldn't get it to clear by toggling the Location Services box, so I quit and restarted SCP. When I did so, it first came up with the bad coordinates, then extremely rapidly zipped through from where it was stuck all the way up to where I was currently, like the coordinates were backlogged and then suddenly flushed out within a few short seconds.  More bizarrely, I noticed the same behavior on two other devices (Pixel 3a and Moto One 5G Ace, both on Android 11) and had to do the same thing to those.  I also dumped my trails on all three, assuming they were all bad by then.  The rest of my devices were correct. I was barreling down the highway at the time, so I couldn't investigate further.  Other than my quoted message above, I've never seen this behavior before, and now it seems to be widespread.  - Trip
    • Does anyone have any updates to the Cumberland/Mineral County area? Specifically looking to get TMHI in Ft. Ashby.
    • Actually, you are correct. It is possible Dish won't take it. Meanwhile both Dish and T-Mobile pretend they don't want it for negotiation purposes.
