In September last year Sprint introduced the One Up program, joining the likes of T-Mobile, Verizon and AT&T, allowing customers to upgrade their phones mid-contract. Earlier this week the Sprint One Up program was officially retired, it was believed that the program hadn’t been a success. The carrier’s subscribers shouldn’t fret as Sprint has come up with an entirely new program to let them upgrade phones without having to wait to be eligible for an upgrade. Sprint Easy Pay allows subscribers to upgrade their phones immediately.
Sprint subscribers have to go to the carrier’s website to check if they’re eligible for Easy Pay. If they are, they can immediately purchase a new phone through the program and pay for it through 24 monthly installments. At the time of purchase, cost includes down payment and all applicable sales taxes. Existing Easy Pay customers can also purchase a new phone, but they will first have to pay off the remaining balance on their current device. Those who have purchased their device from Sprint and have upgraded can sell their phone back to the carrier through its Buyback program and receive up to $300. Sprint says that this program is going to be run for a limited time, so better dish out money for that new phone before its too late.
