Apple upgrade program vs Sprint lease

Now that Sprint is charging more for the iPhone lease, do you guys feel that the Sprint lease (old iPhone forever plan) is still the best deal? I'm having a tough time deciding. I've been feeling like the two extra dollars/month for an iPhone plus 128 GB phone through apple is worth it as it's unlocked and it comes with apple care. But I've been recently re-thinking that as it may be easier to upgrade though Sprint and I have never used Apple care within the first year of a phone...

Thoughts?

I would pay an extra $2 per month for Apple Care on a leased device.

Thru discounts, my lease in 6s, is half of what they are offering on the 7 and I pay $1 for iPhone 4ever. Hopefully they will help the Loyal Customers out

The way I see it, is on Sprint, I would go from paying $19/month to paying $39 and change for the iPhone plus 128 GB one. On the apple upgrade program is 41 and change.

Let me know if you know of a way to get it cheaper than that through Sprint...

I just upgraded last year for a 6s any suggestions on getting upgraded to a 7 I have been with sprint over 15 years? Looking at the apple program as there is no contract!

Are you on a lease or do you own the 6s outright? If you own it, Sprint will give you a 7 32 GB for free.

If you smash your screen with Apple Care+, repair is only $29, and any other damage resulting in replacement is $100. This beats out the Sprint insurance deductible. It also means you do business at the Genius Bar, not with Sprint.

AppleCare+ has always been a better deal than Sprint's (or any carrier's, for that matter) deductible. The only benefits the carrier's insurance provides is for loss or theft.

    • Let me take a look tonight. 
    • Actually, I notice it says whole clusters were skipped because of invalid TAC values.  It says "File exported for inspection."  I do have Log Sites with Missing TAC checked. Robert
    • I was able to figure this out by looking at your diagnostic reports -- you're seeing n7 because your Galaxy A32 is reporting it natively as n7.. Samsung will have to fix that on their end unfortunately. Do the engineering screens report it correctly? I have an A32 test device but I have not seen it connect to n41 (or "n7") yet. If I do, I'll try to troubleshoot and nag Samsung. EDIT: After I installed the new Android 12 update, I'm now seeing the n7 bug too -- I will reach out to Samsung. They were very responsive when I reported some related glitches with the initial A32 software.
    • I appreciate the feedback today -- another new is SCP beta rolling out right now! It should resolve the force closes that started with yesterday's beta release; I also made additional improvements that hopefully(?) will reduce ongoing issues with overall app stability.
    • I'm noticing a spike in instability while driving around testing the app today also.. more freeze-ups than crashes, but it's probably all related. Hopefully any crash reports that are collected can shed some light on it for me. I'll be looking into it later tonight.
