The fourth-biggest wireless carrier in the US says it’s new LTE Plus network is one of the fastest in the country… but that doesn’t do the company much good unless it can attract customers. So Sprint is launching a pretty big sale to promote the launch of its new network: switch to Sprint from one of the top three wireless carriers and the company promises to cut your phone bill by 50 percent.

Sprint will pay you up to $650 to cover any early termination fees from your existing carrier. But there is some fine print:

  • In order to qualify you’ll need to port your number to Sprint from AT&T, Verizon or T-Mobile between November 20th and January 7th, 2016.
  • Sprint is also only guaranteeing the discounted prices through January 8th, 2018 — so while you might save a lot of money over two years, there’s no way of knowing what will happen when those years are up.

Sprint says the half-price deal is also good for Cricket and MetroPCS customers that port their phone numbers… but existing Sprint subscribers don’t get a discount. Instead, the company is offering existing subscribers a free Alcatel OneTouch Pixi 7 tablet plus a free year of wireless service (but only if you agree to a 2-year contract, which means you will have to pay for 1 year of service).

The good news is that if you’re not happy with the service you have 28 days to back out of the deal: Sprint says there’s no restocking fee if you return a device within that time.

  1. Looks like a good deal if you’re happy to switch to the Sprint network in your area. There will always be naysayers, but there is no perfect mobile phone plan and $25/month for unlimited talk/text and 2GB of data is as good a deal as you will get from most of the best MVNOs. I’m paying $27/month for 500MB of data on my H2O wireless plan, but I do get free overseas calls, which I use a lot.

  2. for free Sprint via FreedomPop and RingPlus is a nice network.. but you seriously expect me to pay for it? NOT HAPPENING

  3. I’ll keep att, I love being able to buy unlocked phone and just put in my sim card. You can’t do that with sprint or Verizon and except to utilize the full network

  4. Cricket, 35 per line and 2.5 gigs free, no contract and you might get a free phone at participating stores and new opening stores. I am waiting for my mom from Miami with coupon in hand!

  5. Unlike T-Mobile and Verizon, whose unlimited plans
    apparently don’t have a cap, Sprint imposes a cap
    on its unlimtied plan of some 22 GB a month.

      1. The Verizon unlimited plan is the grandfathered
        iPhone plan of several years ago.

    1. Even worse… in addition to making a typo, I also forgot that January 2018 is two years from January 2016, not one…

      Corrected both points. Will take time to study basic math later.
