$99.99 iPhone 4 For New Sprint As You Go Prepaid Customers

Sprint has added an attractive new device option to its Sprint As You Go prepaid service. Refurbished iPhone 4s are now available for $99.99 to new users who port their number from another operator.

The refurbished iPhone's full price is $399.99. Sprint is offering a $200 activation discount and a $100 Bring Your Number Savings for a net cost of $99.99. Activation on the $70 Sprint As You Go Smartphone plan is required to get the $200 discount, which is a mail in rebate. You need to port a phone number from a different operator to get the $100 discount, which is instant.

Activation discounts and the Bring You Number discount are available on other As You Go phones. With both promotions,  the Samsung Galaxy Victory 4G LTE is $149.99. The Samsung Galaxy S II is also 149.99.

The As You Go service includes a several postpaid style perks that aren't included with Sprint's Boost and Virging Mobile prepaid plans, including unlimited and unthrottled data, call forwarding and off network voice, text and 1xRTT (2G) data roaming (limited to 400 minutes and 100 MB per month).

Taxes and fees are substantial with As You Go, adding between $16 and $28/month to the cost of the $70 plan. This is in contrast with most other prepaid operators, including Sprint's Boost and Virgin Mobile, which only charge applicable state and local sales tax and e911 fees.

Sprint As You Go phones and service activation are only available at Sprint retail stores, not online. The $99.99 iPhone deal ends May 9, 2013.

  6. First post. Yeswap I love your website and appreciate your willingness to answer questions when you can.

    Monthly taxes and fees of $16-28 make this a deal killer for me and I can't find a Sprint MVNO that takes Sprint Iphones. Question, would it be difficult to flash this Sprint Iphone to PagePlus or is there any Sprint MVNO that does take Iphones?

    1. Sprint doesn't permit any of its MVNOs to activate iPhones. The Sprint iPhone 4 (but not the 4S or 5, AFAIK) has been flashed to work on Page Plus. There's are many guides on the Web, here's one: Updated Guide IOS 6 Sprint iPhone 4 flash to Page Plus with 3g and MMS.

  8. One BIG addition you did NOT mention is if you already own a Sprint iPhone 4 they will NOT let you use it or activate it for their As You Go service! I have tried and they told me I MUST first purchase an iPhone 4 through their store or get it online as it will aready have a ph# assigned to that sale. Another pure BS ploy of Sprint!

    1. Have your iPhone 4 flashed to Verizon if their coverage is good for you. Then activate it on Selectel Wireless for $50/month for 2GB, or $65 for 4GB (through dealers). The savings will pay for the flash very quickly, and you will have faster data speed in most places.

  9. AND you cannot obtain this service using your already paid for Sprint iPhone, you must buy another specific to this service because Sprint are JERKS!
