Does Best Buy still offer upgrades with Everything Data plans?

If I upgrade to a G3 at Best Buy will I be able to keep my ED450 plan? Can a BB employee (or anyone else) confirm? Thanks

Yes, I upgraded from my Nexus 5 to the LG G3 on my Everything Data - Share 1500 plan just this morning at WorstBuy.

Thanks. I wasn't sure since it's not officially offered/advertised anymore and when I went through the process on Amazon the other day, they weren't offering it.

Really? They are with me and plus I upgraded my father last month without a problem.

Maybe it's different with a family plan? On the Select a Plan screen for the individual plan, the only options i'm seeing are the My All-Inand the Unlimited My Way with either 1GB or unlimited data.

Some plans will force a plan change, but the Best Buy employee can call NSS and have it switched back to your prior plan.

Yeah, I know. Right?  It's a nice device and the size of the screen is ideal, however It just isn't as buttery smooth as my Nexus 5 w/4.4.4 on it.  I had gotten used to the pure Google experience and miss it dearly. I do like the LG G3 Keyboard with the number keys along the top row, but miss the option to have the comma key appear on the main KB screen.  I also miss the display of punctuation marks when I press the space key (With predictive word suggestions turned off.)

 

I may exercise the 14-Day return period and stick with my Nexus 5 until the LG G3 Prime (Snapdragon 805) or GPE comes out.

Oh, I am mostly teasing.  However, the Nexus 5 may be the first device in a long while with legitimate multi year longevity, even superiority.  RF, processor, and screen are all pushing beyond the point of diminishing returns.  I probably should not, for I might never use it, but I may even pick up a second Nexus 5 as a backup.

Buy it and mail it to me. I'll hold it for you.

SwiftKey does numbers on the top row now too. So you can put that on the n5 in the meantime.

Oh, I know you would "hold it."  And tap it, watch it, listen with it, browse with it, play with it...

I upgraded yesterday. As long as you renew your 2 year, nothing changes. Got my G3 for 54.36 with tax. 32 GB even. I'm on a very old contract. 10+ years. You can't touch my monthly price with insurance. Unlimited everything and the 13.00 Insurance for 70 a month with tax. Yay grandfathered contracts!

I just added a line through Amazon. When I ordered it, it switched my lines from the Everything Data 1500 to the My Way plan. When I activated the phone today, I called back in to Sprint and they switched me back to the Everything Data 1500. I was told that you have 14 days to change it back. I just logged into my Sprint account and verified it is on the ED1500.

Be careful.  You could get hit with a charge from Amazon.  Often when you activate a line through a third party reseller, you agree to a secondary contract that requires you to remain on the specified plan for a certain period of time.  Otherwise, the reseller does not receive its full commission, so it hits you with a penalty fee.  Double check the fine print of any agreement that you signed.

I asked Amazon and they said it would not be a problem to do it. They said their system just isn't set up to keep old plans.

Has anyone ever had luck upgrading to a new phone with an everything plus referral plan at Best Buy or any 3rd party retailer?

 

Third parties do not have access to that account type at all, but you can still upgrade through a corporate store and then call national sales support to get switched back to your plan.

+1 for SwiftKey.  And, it has the comma on the main keyboard.

    • T-Mobile wins more 5G spectrum over AT&T's objections So now it's official?
    • Just got back from Puerto Rico. I spent a lot of time going around the San Juan metro area, predominantly in Viejo San Juan, Santurce, Isla Verde, and a short stop in University Gardens.  T-Mobile's network still performs as well today as it did when I last tested and in my opinion is the best on the island. n41 is still at 100MHz in most areas though I did record a few areas with only 80MHz. Yesterday the FCC announced that they're finally granting T-Mobile their Auction 108 winnings so we'll probably finally see that increase. They also have 15MHz of n25 and 15MHz of n25 and 15MHz n71. The fastest speed I recorded while there was 922 down and 120 up, presumably aggregating n41+n25 and potentially n71 as well but I wasn't able to confirm that. A couple of things I noticed about their network are that their is a ton of split-sector n25 deployed in San Juan, much like in the U.S. I even noticed some n41 sites that had 4 or more sectors. The weirdest being the site on top of SJU Airport where they have 6 n41 sectors each broadcasting 80MHz of n41. AT&T SIMs roam on LIberty's network but they still treat it as the home network. In my opinion they're the second best network in Puerto Rico. Liberty is still using the AT&T MCC-MNC code and is pretty much coasting on AT&T's network upgrades. They have 10MHz n5 virtually everywhere but I never saw my phone connect to any other 5G bands. Their saving grace was just how much spectrum they have to aggregate across midband and lowband. I'd see combos like 10MHz n5 + 20MHz B2 + 10MHz B66 + 10MHz Band 30 + 5MHz Band 2 and get upwards of 200Mbps. Coverage was slightly worse than T-Mobile in my experience, even indoors which is a surprise given T-Mobile usually struggles a bit indoors due to their macro density. Verizon is roaming on Claro in Puerto Rico just as they have been for years. No idea if there is 5G roaming because I was connected to LTE the entire time. Toggling 5G didn't do anything and both pings and speeds weren't great. Speeds were in the 20-40Mbps range consistently and pings over 200ms. For comparison T-Mobile's pings are in the teens and Liberty pings are in the 40's even when roaming using an AT&T SIM. Claro's network is ok in my experience with nothing really notable about it.  — — — — — Here are some pics of sites that I took:
    • WTB instructed to process all 2.5GHz licenses across the USA. They are only giving up some spectrum in certain markets of Hawaii.
    • Is this just for licenses in Hawaii?
    • Yeah, it basically directs the bureau to proceed with granting the applications in the normal course.  It's no longer being held by the AT&T objection. - Trip
