Very uncarrier of them.......

 

 

Basically after you get your final bill, you go to the promo website and upload your bill. Then a few weeks later you get a visa with up to $350 per line.

Great I can see T-Mobile trying to sue over color infringement now -_- but I see this as purple, and a good thing to increase customer numbers

This is nice, might make filling my Framily a lot easier.

My question to the resident Sprint store employee gurus on that would be, just to be clear, would people taking advantage of this be allowed to join an existing Framily, or would they be required to start their own?  I only ask because of the wording used:  'Requires Framily activation and registration'.   Maybe that just means joining any Framily, but without knowing the inner workings of things, that could potentially be interpreted either way.

All that means is you need to activate a new line on to a framily plan and then register on the website with your final bill.

I can see them trying, but it's just Marketing ... Heck, I know a particular shipping company that started a division like the one I work for and went to market with a color (and name) very similar to ours. We've since changed our color ... Haha. Anyway I completely agree its good to see them get aggressive to take market share. And with the rapid expansion of LTE recently, they may be able to do it.

Yeah but they got their way with AIO. They are like a teachers pet. Their uncarrier acts of recent backfired, but they got scared and reversed what they wanted to do. It is evident they are bleeding money, and are having trouble making it by, so Suing over a color might be their only way :P. I am glad to see something aggressive regarding getting new people, this and a free galaxy tab is a pretty good deal!

lol, we'll they wouldn't be the first German-based company to fail in the U.S. Market (DHL anyone?) But, like DHL, T-Mobile and their parent, Deutsche Telekom, do quite well globally. Of course, domestic shipping is a different beast than wireless telecom. Our government seems to be entertaining the same merger and acquisition philosophy with wireless carriers as they have with airlines ... They seem to want a handful of competitors and that's it ... Even though that never benefits the consumers. (Look at cable for an example there)

Nice I've been needing some incentive for my friends to switch back. I've slowly been planting the seeds... So hopefully two will bite at this...

How does this work if you're switching from a no contract plan (but still pay for the device separately like Att Next)?

 

My cousins are looking at getting cheaper cellular service but they just switched to att next. It'll be a nightmare once they decide to upgrade a single line.

If you are financing your phone, then sprint will pay up to 350 of the remainder balance of the installment

As has Legere. Naturally, his little band of lemmings have responded in predictable fashion.

 

Regardless of their antics, I'm curious as to whether Sprint is not requiring people who take advantage of this offer to buy (or finance) a new handset from them? Obviously you can't use another company's handset with Sprint (except perhaps a Nexus 5). However, you can get a relatively cheap one off of Craigslist, eBay, etc.

 

What's to stop people from just using this, for example, to go from AT&T to VZW or vice versa with a 90 day stop at Sprint in between?

T-mobile simply requires you to buy a phone from them to get the ETF offer. A friend of mine moved from VZW to T-mo and bought a $65 flip phone which was apparently the cheapest thing they had. And earlier in the year T-mobile was promoting the fact that AT&T users could get their ETF paid off, come to T-mo to try the service and if they didn't like then just switch back to AT&T and basically be nothing out of pocket.

 

Since Sprint is copying the ETF offer, Im sure they will at least require a device purchase to complete the ETF deal with them.

Does this work for people that are currently sprint customers with a contract? Since I want to just break out of mine to take advantage of the framily plan without paying the 15$ monthly switch to it with a contract

You only pay the $15 if you bought a contract phone after Jan 10th. You can also get out of your contract and get a phone with easy pay this whole month.

Thanks maybe I'll switch to the new plan!

I love it. Everyone "copies" other ideas in this industry. Like when magenta started device subsidies; the others soon followed. Magenta started the contract buyout. Now, Sprint is doing it for a limited time. It's great. The consumers win when these corporations battle.

    • Yeah totes saw that article and I was like! Well damn hahaha there won't be expansion of band 41 then in areas of the Upper Manhattan/Bronx and Westchester then if that is the case otherwise we would have seen it. 
    • Well, I saw a good deal on a factory unlocked A32 5G on eBay and was able to convince the seller to show me the software info screen--and it was May.  So I jumped on it. Stuck one of my Tello SIMs in it, and while my Moto One 5G Ace would connect to n71 SA, this phone refuses to do so.  And with only 0 for the TA value, it's less useful for LTE than my older devices.  Oh, and the *#2263# menu doesn't work properly for NR.  So definitely glad I'm able to disable updates. - Trip
    • NextWave re-emerges with 2.5 GHz private network service  https://www.fiercewireless.com/private-wireless/nextwave-re-emerges-25-ghz-private-network-service https://www.nextwave5g.com/nextwave-news The only way for T-Mobile to get up to 190MHz now is to either buy out NextWave in it's entirety or wait until NextWave's lease is up and attempt to "outbid" them for the right to lease the spectrum from the Archdiocese.
