How does the Sprint Galaxy Forever plan work?

If you're a Samsung Galaxy fan, then you're going to love this offer from Sprint. Galaxy Forever works just like a car lease program: you pay your monthly lease payments and at the end of the lease term, you can get a new Galaxy phone. Pretty cool, right?

Well, before you run out and lease a Galaxy S7 or S7 edge from Sprint, there's some fine-print that you should be aware of. It's nothing too drastic, but you should know about it all the same.

The program

You're leasing the phone instead of buying it, like a car lease. You keep the S7 or S7 edge for a year and make your monthly lease payments. At the end of the term, you become eligible to upgrade your S7 for the next generation Galaxy device. Here's how the monthly payments break down:

  • Samsung Galaxy S7: $25.99 for 24 months, with upgrade after 12 payments.
  • Samsung Galaxy S7 edge: $31.50 per month for 24 months, with upgrade after 12 payments.

Additionally, you can get a second device for a reduced payment of $12.99 per month for 24 months for the S7 and $15.62 per month for 24 months for the S7 edge. Upgrade after 12 payments for both.

The fine print

Like most other carriers, Sprint requires that you open a wireless account with them to participate in the program. If you cancel early, the remaining lease payments become due and you have to return the device or pay the purchase amount.

It's also worth mentioning that you'll need to return the phone in good condition, per the lease agreement. You may want to consider one of the insurance plans Sprint offers in the event something happens to it.

Simplicity itself

That's all there is to Sprint's Galaxy Forever program. If you love Samsung's Galaxy phones, this is a great opportunity for you to get the next Galaxy release when it comes out next spring and every other spring thereafter!
