Sprint to Guarantee Trades and ETF for T-Mobile Customers

Recommended Posts

Sprint will guarantee $200 per mobile device trade and up to $350 per line of ETF/Installment payments per line. Shifting towards competing more and more against T-Mobile:

Nice. I like it.  Maybe some T-Mobile customers will realize Sprint actually has a decent network now.

It is pretty good considering TM is doing 10GB of data and Sprint will offer unlimited.  Might as well bring the last competitor into the fight.

interesting just for tmobile

They have to have something to target T-Mobile since they're targeting AT&T/Verizon with cut your bill in half.

Could this be to force Tmo to drop prices... Since DT said this is unsustainable???? Take some Tmo customers, slow the numbers down??

$100 for 2 lines? Sprint's family plan gives up to 10 lines.

$100 for 2 unlimited lines.

Sprint is $50/60 per unlimited line for ios/android

By the way, Sprint also added $100 for 2 lines, unlimited.

I'm sure you believe in the old days, Hesse wouldn't maximize his chances at competing, but it's a new day and new company with Marcelo at the helm.

Cool. I'll consider them when my phone eventually breaks. And if they still have that plan.

If your profile is accurate, you could use your Nexus 5. Possibly even with it having been purchased from T-Mobile now that Sprint is willing to add devices to the white list.

I didn't know Sprint was adding items to the white list

Sprint matched the price of the T-Mobile unlimited family plan ($100 for 2 lines, then $40/line, up to 10 lines; no NVP discounts) a few weeks ago. This promotion is currently set to expire at the end of the month, but will probably be extended if T-Mobile also continues to offer it.

 

One important difference, however, is that Sprint unfortunately did not match the 5GB of (official) hotspot/tethering per line that T-Mobile includes.

This has been possible to do for a while, but they don't make it easy, and most reps will say it can't be done. You have to convince someone to open a ClickIT ticket, and hope that when you inevitably have to escalate the issue that it finds its way into the hands of the right person or team, much like the process that's required to swap the "ownership code" of a device between wholesale and retail.

      I'm new to this forum, and I've seen people mention cell sites with specific ID's (for example, SF33XC664). Is there any significance to these ID's, and is there a way to decode them? Also, how do I figure out what the cell site ID's are for towers near me?
      Thanks! I'm excited to start talking on this site more 😀

      Samsung Network Vision equipment are highly distinct and fairly easy to spot compared to the equipment that other vendors are deploying. Sprint is Samsung's first extremely massive American contract (baring Clearwire) so there  should be no issues in confusing these equipment for another carrier which happens often with Ericsson NV equipment.

      Below are images of Samsung equipment which includes antennas, remote radio units, base stations, and their mounting configurations.

      Sprint announced the MVNO Google Fi will use its network for 5G in a press release (that is, once there are actually 5G capable phones compatible with Google Fi someday):

      This is the first I've heard about Fi and 5G so far. Google has pretty much kept mum on the topic, so I'm somewhat encouraged.
