Sprint Brings Back Its Two-Year Service Contracts


sprint-samsung-galaxy-s7-pre-order
Back in January, Sprint announced that they will be discontinuing their two-year wireless service contracts. Although they will still be offering contracts for tablets, this was no longer a choice for smartphones and handsets. This decision turned out to be a temporary one as the carrier decided to listen to its customers. 

Just recently, Sprint has reinstated their two-year wireless service contracts as a way of giving its customers more options to choose from. Their options now include to pay full retail price, have a 24-month service contract, pay in monthly installments or even lease the device. 

So for example you want to get the Samsung Galaxy S7, Sprint now gives you the option to get the device on a lease (you pay $19.74 monthly), a monthly installment ($20.84 for 24 months), a two-year service contract ($199.99 in two years), or through its full price ($649.99).

By listening to their customers, Sprint has been able to turn itself into the only carrier to provide the most number of choices in order to get a new device.

  1. Everyone laughed @ T-MOBILE when it ended its 2 year contract/Subsidized Phone plans...Then Everyone were forced to copy them... Thanks to T-MOBILE under Legere, the Big 4 has undergone much needed Shaking-up!

  2. Call me crazy but financing a phone through your carrier is pretty much a 2 year deal, Tmobile just changed the wording.

    1. The difference is that before T-Mobile got rid of two-year service contracts, there was no way to separate phone payments from service payments... so after your two-year contract was up, you still paid the subsidized service price even though the phone was effectively paid off.

  3. There still isn't really a way to separate phone payments from service payments. "No contract" postpaid T-Mobile rates are still obscene compared to any of the prepaid options.

  4. mike is exactly right. there is no service contract if you have your own phone. you can buy your phone with loan from your bank if you prefer - but TM gives you a 0% interest loan.

  5. Typo or Rewording error regarding phone pricing: "a two-year service contract ($199.99 in two years),"
    This makes no sense. Should have said "a contract model ($199.99 through a two-year contract)," the way FierceWireless wrote it.

  6. I really wish Christine would filter out the marketing buzz in these press releases or, at a minimum, put quotes around the PR wording. I seriously doubt Dennis would write "By listening to their customers, Sprint has been able to turn itself into the only carrier to provide the most number of choices in order to get a new device."

  8. Sprint's new 2-year contract may sell an iPhone for $450 discount, but the device access fee is $25/mo higher ($20/mo for non-contract vs $45/mo for 2-year contract) for the new shared data plan.
    This makes the 2-year contract more expensive for the entire period of 2 years by
    $25/mo extra x 24 month - $450 device discount = $150 extra in 2 years
    This 2-year deal does not make sense at all.
