Sprint has gone through with its plans to 2-year contracts for smartphones, according to an internal document sent to us by an anonymous tipster. According to the document below, customers activating a new account with Sprint will no longer have the option of subsidizing their smartphone purchase with a 2-year agreement. Tablets, apparently, are still able to be purchased on such an agreement.
The move to ditch 2-year contracts for smartphone purchases now comes close to the timeline Sprint announced in August, when it said it would do so by the end of 2015. By doing away with 2-year contracts, Sprint is catching up with Verizon and T-Mobile, who have also made similar moves, along with AT&T, which confirmed plans to do the same starting January 8.
