Sprint is offering to reimburse all fees for customers to ditch current carriers

This is just the latest effort from Sprint to get new customers. The company says that it will pay off any remaining fees and costs from former carriers "no matter what is owed." Here's how it will work:

  • Bring your number from any other carrier with an early termination fee or phone installment plan balance.
  • Activate a device on Sprint Easy Pay, iPhone for Life Plan, Sprint Lease or pay full retail price with a new line of service.
  • Complete an online registration at www.sprint.com/joinsprint and upload a bill that shows applicable charges for reimbursement within 60 days of activation.
  • Customers are required to turn in competitor phones (in good working condition) tied to the bill they submitted. To make this simple and hassle free, customers will receive a prepaid return kit in the mail.
  • Award is paid via American Express Reward Card after online registration.

Sprint says the reimbursement money will be sent to their customers "within approximately 15 days" of completing the online registration.

  • you couldn't pay me enough to go back to Sprint. on AT&T now and it's like night and day. Sprint customers are willfully ignorant and have no idea of what they're missing. they deserve everything they get just like blackberry customers.
  • Are you still on AT&T prepaid? Or postpaid now? Still rocking a Nexus 5? Around my parts, VZW still has the best coverage but AT&T's LTE speeds beat VZW on every side by side situation I have seen lately.
  • Nexus 5 + AT&T GoPhone. 4GB with Unlimited Talk/Text and Hotspot for $59/month after all taxes/fees/discounts. LTE speeds and ubiquity are awesome. No Proxy/No Throttling. tried to buy Nexus 6 but couldn't get one in a timely manner so will wait for the next Nexus arriving in 8 months.
  • You could get better deal on Cricket, just FYI Nexus 5 (AT&T)
  • Yep!!! Posted on my Samsung Galaxy Note 4 that is happy to not be on Lollipop.
  • Cricket uses a proxy. slower speeds, throttling, low tower priority. you're treated like a second class citizen vs. AT&T proper. sometimes you get what you pay for. i like value, but value is not always the "cheapest". but if it works for you that's great. that's all that matters.
  • This is not true at all. They do throttle your speeds to 8mbps, but other than that, it matches ATT exactly. I get 60-90 ping while gaming, and 8mbps is fast enough to do all thats required on my phone and most of my PC work.
  • Must just be the area I'm in, my ping was just terrible on Cricket like 300 - 350 at best. I would get 50-60 usually when I was on GoPhone. Really made browsing slow.
  • Gekko...hate to break it to u, but all internet connections go through a proxy . 2nd, 8mbps is enough to stream any video in 1080 in HD, so you want 100 Mbps download on a phone is absolute nonsense In computer networks, a proxy server is a server (a computer system or an application) that acts as an intermediary for requests from clients seeking resources from other servers. A client connects to the proxy server, requesting some service, such as a file, connection, web page, or other resource available from a different server and the proxy server evaluates the request as a way to simplify and control its complexity. Proxies were invented to add structure and encapsulation to distributed systems.[1] Today, most proxies are web proxies, facilitating access to content on the World Wide Web and providing anonymity.

  • Yeah, I was on Cricket for a while. The price is nice, but the throttled speed could be a bummer (8Mbps max on LTE). The ping on Cricket is really slow as well. I'd get 50-60 ping on gophone, and 300-350 on cricket.
  • Same could be said about the people on AT&T, and same about Verizon, T-mobile, strait talk, so on and so forth. Sprint works well for some, not for others, why should we insult people for choosing a company who works best for them?
  • I'm not on Sprint, but its funny how one or two people have bad experiences with former carries and swears up and down the new carrier is the best. For me its all about getting the service when I need it most. I had Sprint and I enjoyed them but my current employer has a great deal with T-Mobile so I switched.
  • They still think it's 1999.
  • Sprints getting better in select markets.. They rolled out spark to all of my area ( Washington DC).. And I get ~30 down and 15 up.. Not horrible Posted via the Android Central App
  • I live right outside Baltimore and I have to say, with the correct phone thats can access the correct bands Sprints 4G has definitely improved a lot. On a side note, its 4G speeds are great but once you end up on 3G is pretty sad.
  • Those are not bad speeds at all. Every market is different. I'm with T-Mobile, getting sick Data Speeds, over 50mb down and 25mb up. Unlimited everything, no speed throttling, added free tethering, also a few mb of free data for my tablet. I am freaken thrilled. Thank You T-Mobile. Posted via the Android Central App
  • Ditch ATT and go to Cricket (ATT prepaid network), $55 for unlimited everything and 20GB of data. Can't go wrong.
  • Couldn't agree more with the first part. Posted via the Android Central App

  • Boo hoo. I don't need to be called ignorant either.
  • If you don't want to be called ignorant you should probably be less filthy about what you post on here. You don't have to use derogatory language because someone has a opinion or how prior customers of Sprint feel about their coverage area. Between you and NoNexus that is all you know how to respond back to post with. Derogatory language filled posts. Posted on my Samsung Galaxy Note 4 that is happy to not be on Lollipop.

  • @moonover.....boo who, grow a pair ! You are the colon hole Posted via the Android Central App
  • Tell me where else I can get truly unlimited everything including FAST 4G LTE for $100/mo for 2 phones? Because you have crappy Sprint service where you live doesn't make me "willfully ignorant". I get awesome 4G LTE both in NY and NJ, and I don't have to worry about throttling and such.
  • @joe.....sprint throttles video streaming, don't be a turd burglar about it, just read the god damn terms and conditions. By the way , that plan is way more than 100 a month for 2 phones. Typical sprint idiot, get lost Posted via the Android Central App
  • Umm... No it doesn't haha. And, no. They also have a 2 lines unlimited 3g/lte for $100 :)
  • I'd like to say you're incredibly wrong. I pay far less for far better customer service and far better overall service with Sprint in my area. Again, this is all based on location and personal opinions, but calling people ignorant just tells me what kind of person you are.
  • You're a troll. See, I wouldn't go to AT&T (in my area) even if they paid me 140 a month to be with them. See how subjective that is?? What might not be good for you might be GREAT for me.....so stop trolling, get a slurpee, and watch revenge of the nerds....again.
  • In my area Sprint SpeedTest averaging over 50Mbps download and 13Mbps upload. I had AT&T and VZW, I dropped both and I went back to Sprint. The test it was after Sprint updated their towers in the area. Before the update, Sprint network it was worthless.
  • My personal phone is Sprint and my work phone is AT&T. After a year I really haven't noticed any difference here in SF.
  • You're absolutely right Gekko. It's very ignorant of me to use a carrier that gives me good service in my areas of usage. I should definitely switch to AT&T, which provides no coverage within 10 miles of my house, and would cost more.
  • @flychinook.....eat a dick faggot Posted via the Android Central App
  • @Gekko, you are right.......sprint flat out sucks. Posted via the Android Central App
  • iPhone for life plan... Lol Posted via the Android Central App
  • Half the coverage for life plan.
  • Too bad AT&T doesn't do something like this.
  • They will. They seem to have made a habit of looking at what other carriers do for incentives, and then blatantly copying them.
  • yet making them worse. Like the rollover data.
  • Yup. "We're going to make things on par with the competition, so you have no reason to go to them (please pay no attention to how we actually hamstring and screw over the positive points that those other guys are actually bringing to the table)"

  • I travel from North Jersey to Baltimore to DC and back to Harrisburg. Never had to worry about sprint giving me great lte. You have them confused with tmo. I am not picking on tmo it is just common knowledge that if you leave the city the service drops Posted by my soon to be retired Note 3
  • "I am not picking on tmo" Ha! That would be a first.
  • They get what they deserve. In this instance I am just comparing how sparse their coverage is to Sprints excellent coverage in the wide area I am forced to travel. Tmo is not bad in North Jersey, Baltimore and DC, but crap everywhere in between. It might get it pretty good around philly as others have stated, but I switch my tmo devices off to save battery. I use my Sprint and Verizon devices when traveling between cities.
  • No, sprint coverage is horrible, also as bad as tmobile. Been traveling through new Mexico and Arizona and been wishing I had Verizon, then again I wonder if Verizon has coverage in the middle of desert Posted via Android Central App on 1+1
  • I can say from experience (as of a few months ago) Verizon has subpar to no coverage (3G at best, usually 1X or nothing) in the desert of NM and AZ.. Posted via the Android Central App
  • I had no coverage for quite a while, sometimes had roaming. But att had 2g in a small city before Flagstaff, AZ which irked me. I did have signal (hspa+) at Grand Canyon though it went away after we left the village area. Posted via Android Central App on 1+1
  • AZ and NM have huge unpopulated areas. You're not going to get coverage everywhere out there and it's a reality those that live there are able to deal with.
    Most every carrier will have a connection near the village at the Grand Canyon, but it's not great and that's OK. I can only imagine how much worse it would be to if the camera wielding morons were able to get to their pinterest, flickr, and facebook.. Let alone the number that would likely walk right over the edge while trying to text.
    After traveling around AZ for years, I can say that VZW has the best coverage, but forget about data if you're not near a (majorish) city. Even then there are long stretches of road with zero coverage, and the places where VZW is the only signal don't much matter because you're either in a place small enough that you can see all that it offers, or you're in the middle of nowhere and deserve the fate of a tourist who wanders into the desert unprepared :D
  • A lot of holes in the desert, and a lot of problems are buried in those holes. But you gotta do it right. I mean, you gotta have the hole already dug before you show up with a package in the trunk. Otherwise, you're talking about a half-hour to forty-five minutes worth of digging. And who knows who's gonna come along in that time? Pretty soon, you gotta dig a few more holes. You could be there all fuckin' night.

  • 9 year Sprint customer here. Highly recommend them.
  • How is the pay nowdays for commentary ? Posted via My G2
  • Just because someone has something nice to say about Sprint, that makes them an employee or someone paid by them?? Give it up already.
  • Funny thing is we pay them for the great service they provide, the comments on how satisfied we are is just a bonus for them Posted by my soon to be retired Note 3
  • $8/hour plus commission for every upvote.
  • hey at least you're honest unlike nonexus
  • I am honest. Two miles outside of any town and tmo sucks compared to the other 3. Deal with it Posted by my soon to be retired Note 3
  • Sorry I won't deal with a lie when that clearly is not the case in my area.
    I get LTE in all these suburban towns and on the Subway whereas that wasn't case with sprint.
    So clearly in my area Sprint is weakest link.
    Sprint couldn't pay me to use their service.
    I still think wherever it is that you get this great service with Sprint is non existent
  • I clearly defined the wide area that I travel in where tmo is useful and non-existent. Sorry Sprint sucks for you, Tmo sucks for me. Neither statement is a lie. The problem with my area is that Tmo sucks just about everywhere outside of a city. I work in Harrisburg, the Capitol of PA and while I am downtown by the capitol building Tmo is good. I live less than 4 miles from there and it is dial up at home. Baltimore is a bit better when you are in it a traveling away from it but it is still subpar compared to Sprint and Verizon.
  • I was a Sprint customer for 15 years, left for ATT due to Sprints lack of coverage in my area (non) , ATT has 4bars LTE coverage here.. Posted via Android Central App on Nexus 7 (2013)
  • I'm guessing it depends on location. I was with them for about a decade, and was happy, even with the WiMax and fledgling LTE rollouts... and then it got slower, and slower and slower, even as they were supposedly shoring and speeding up the network in the area (Chicago). It got to the point where if I forced my phone to 3G coverage, I was getting the same speeds (or faster) than I was with their LTE. When asked about it their customer service claimed it couldn't be their fault (though I am still at a loss how it could be anyone else's. At that point it was obvious they were more interested in excuses to retain customers than actual quality, and I walked away. I'm glad your experience has been better, but this is definitely YMMV territory.
  • I ran away and didn't look back. I've checked now and again but their coverage in my area is still atrocious. I hate paying AT&T pricing but they have the entire Chicago/NW Indiana area blanketed with LTE coverage so it's hard to jump.
  • I've been trying out Sprint for a week now in South Florida. Coverage seems fine to me. I think the complaints online are exaggerated. Of course if you live in a small town or in the middle of nowhere, don't expect any network to have decent coverage and certainly complaining about coverage in the desert is a bit silly. It is the desert.
  • ^This. People are always going to complain but there are many of us who actually have great Sprint service no matter where we are. Of course, people generally only comment if they have a complaint, not if they've had a good experience. It's a fact.
  • Yea. Most people that complain had sprint 2 years ago or before, when I think we can all agree they were horrible. But now? I use 12-14GB a month and pay $51 ($60/mo unlimited everything plan minus corporate discount). I have strong Band 41 LTE all over when I'm out around town and the new Band 26 LTE that is popping up provides EXCELLENT range and indoor coverage. I couldn't be happier in Raleigh, but yes 2010-2013 sprint was ROUGH.
  • No that's not true I know someone who recently got Sprint like a couple months ago. And they have the worst service while sitting outside when Sprint supposedly upgraded their towers. I know someone else who has them and anytime I talk to them I can't even make out anything they say whether their inside or outside. Posted via the Android Central App
  • Travel through the Midwest and then get back to me. Go through Illinois, St.Louis, Kansas City, Kansas , Oklahoma and Denver. You would have better luck talking through tin cans and having your messages delivered via fed ex. Would get there faster. Posted on my Samsung Galaxy Note 4 that is happy to not be on Lollipop.
  • I can confirm that. I live in the stl area and had sprint. Boy. It was awful except in select areas which wasn't very much. Posted via the Android Central App
  • I live in Stl get great sprint coverage everywhere. The only time I have problems is at Blues and Cardinals games. Posted via the Android Central App
  • The 5 people that need to regularly travel that route will likely have a different carrier.

  • You are driving the opposite direction from what I suggested. Can't speak for Georgia, Kentucky and Tennessee. Posted on my Samsung Galaxy Note 4 that is happy to not be on Lollipop.
  • their primary coverage area is the Midwest. you could say the same thing you said about T-Mobile.
  • they have a bigger footprint than T-Mobile and have been engaged in a complete rip and replace of their entire network, at the same time as a regime change, and attempted merger, and a build out of 2 additional LTE frequencies, and now they're talking about expanding coverage out west and southwest. the fruits of all their labor is finally showing, people will take notice when the next RootMetrics report comes out and Spark is actually measured.
  • Sprint made it to cheap to leave a couple months ago. But when this contract is up I think I'm going to have to bail finally. Posted via the Android Central App

  • Looks like trying to preempt whatever T-Mobile is planning on 18th.. Posted via the Android Central App
  • Oh Sprint... With your horrible network speeds and lack of LTE coverage that keeps you jumping between LTE and 3G. Oh how I wish I could afford 5 new devices and hop on AT&T
  • Nice try lol.
  • Sprint needs to do this, because they may have fallen out of the #3 US national carrier position (if T-Mobile's claim is accurate).
  • 15 year customer here..great service in my home area, travelled to Florida, new York and California recently never had a problem. What do I know though, I'm just ignorant. Posted via Android Central App
  • No one is saying you're ignorant. What is true is the majority of Sprint customers are unhappy with Sprint's coverage across the boards. There is a reason why T-Mobile is (if not already) taking their 3rd place spot. T-Mobile is no Verizon or AT&T as far as coverage either, but T-Mobile covers where it matters most which is the metropolitan areas. This incentive is a ripoff of T-Mobile, and they are starting to feel the heat from T-Mobile. Posted via the Android Central App
  • First comment up top says sprint customers are willfully ignorant...I'm a sprint customer. Posted via Android Central App
  • Welcome to the interwebs bro...where people say things that are false... Posted via the Android Central App
  • Funny - when T-Mo did this, the other 2 big carriers took notice and so did customers. Sprint announces it (what - years later?) and I'm like "...next headline, please!" Too little, too late, too irrelevant. Sprint is a sinking ship, people - and that's clear to say without even taking their cell coverage into consideration, because that's different for every metro area. Sprint's management, however, is not different for every metro area.
  • They were already paying ETFs (started around when T-Mobile started), now they're adding remaining device payments, which T-Mobile doesn't do.
  • I'm moving from Toledo, OH to Houston, TX.... I have T-Mobile now... depending on the coverage down there, I might go back to Sprint. Anyone have any experience with Sprint in Houston/The Woodlands?
  • AT&T or Verizon is your best bet. Posted on my Samsung Galaxy Note 4 that is happy to not be on Lollipop.
  • I live I Houston. Sprint is basically non existent. T mobile is okay is some parts near downtown. Att or verizon will be the better choice. Or cricket.
  • http://s4gru.com/index.php?/topic/1098-network-visionlte-houston-market/
  • Thanks, I'll roll the dice with T-Mobile for now. The cost of VZW service is "too damn high!"
  • I live near downtown Houston with my gf. Had att for years. We recently switched to T-Mobile and haven't had any problems. Way cheaper and the service is just as good as att or Verizon. Posted via the Android Central App
  • They could offer me free service for life and 2 free flagship phones a year and I still wouldn't bite...
  • Sprint is the worst carrier I have ever went with. Not only does the service suck but so does their customer service. On the phone and at their live service centers. I had an issue with my phone and had a so called 'questionable handset' when they did their data analysis on my phone. When I called the customer service number as this was a replacement phone. They said they won't replace it and they had no clue what I was talking about even after I sent them the analysis report that said questionable handset. In the end I cancelled my contract. Never had reception and when I did it wasn't long before my calls would just completely drop. Posted via the Android Central App
  • I thought Sprints customer service was auful! Posted via the Android Central App
  • Never go back, even if you give me $500 free. Posted via Android Central App
  • I'm very confused, because I had a line with VZW and activated an old Blackberry before transferring the line to Sprint. They just told me that I had to turn in my "current phone." They cut my $60 VZW bill in half and already approved my request for my $350 EFT reimbursement. It seems to me that if someone wanted to, they could buy a Nexus 6 from one of the other carriers, swap their device, have Sprint pay off the equipment and then use that same Nexus 6 on Sprint. I am not advocating this, but Sprint is decent in my area and they are worth $30 a month for what I get.
  • you would have to have a device paid off to remove it from an account. if you buy the nexus 6, youre either going to have to pay it off or turn it in to Sprint in this deal.
  • I'm on Sprint. Just got 75ms ping, 5.95 up and 3.08 down I'm at work in the data center, where penetration is expected to be low...1 bar. I'm basically in a faraday cage almost.
  • I love my Tmobile way too much, thanks but No thanks Sprint Posted via the Android Central App
  • This would be a great deal- IF Sprint had better service overall. They do not have the 4G capabilities to compete with major carriers. It blows my mind that Sprint doesn't try to be more competitive by updating their network. I have traveled through Virginia, West Virginia, and North Carolina and had very, very little luck in finding 4G. We left Sprint 2 years ago and I cannot imagine going back to 3G service!

  • Unlimited shitty data Posted via the Android Central App
  • About 2 years ago I was up in LA at the Glendale Galleria mall for some reason I don't remember, but we sat down for some lunch, and about 50 yards from our table was a Sprint store. I pull out my phone to check some websites and couldn't get a single bit of 3G data. So I grabbed my wife's iPhone on AT&T and she had a full LTE signal. That did it for me. The straw that broke the camel's proverbial back. I was done. It wasn't solely that incident, but frustrations with their data network had been building for quite awhile and it was the tipping point. I stuck by Sprint for a long time, through the WiMax debacle and beyond, but enough was enough. Maybe things are better now (somehow I doubt it) but it would take a lot more than saving a few bucks to get me to go back.
  • You know that being in close proximity to a STORE has zero relationship with network performance, right? Posted via the Android Central App
  • That's like getting paid to commit suicide! Posted via the Android Central App
  • Amen to that. Subpar network, and yes retards, I was with sprint less than 3 months ago. I was with them for over 4 years, constant bullshit excuses, we are upgrading the network. So in 3 months , they didn't do any major overhhaul. Sprint employees need to stop pretending on here, you are not fooling all of us Posted via the Android Central App
  • If Sprint paid all of my fees to switch to Sprint I would, I fear, be using Sprint :)
  • Idk about going back to Sprint, been with Att 6 years and have good coverage in the northeast, i do know there network enough to know where they have holes and slowdowns, they are expensive for the little they do give you. When I was with Sprint coverage wise I was actually fine, it worked outside and i knew where the end of the cell range ended to drop calls, i also knew about the lack of service indoors, that was a given but i turned on roaming and i was fine. 3g worked fine for me and i was able to do what i needed to do. I dont know how much it has improved since i was with them and that was on the old network, but i might look at them again and this is a tempting offer. Idk
  • People still use Sprint? Posted via the Android Central App
  • Ummm... They're still in business, so that's a yes.
  • I had Sprint for over 10 years, until I moved to a small town. I tried going to the local Radio Shack but that turned out to be a total desisater!..The Manger of the RS told me that a Smartphone would not help because of Sprints Issues with the there towers...I decided to try a better phone, hoping it would help?(I had 14 days to return the phone) ..she was correct, it didn't help! I returned the phone after 9 days.. ..I was at the end of my contract with Sprint, so I decided to go with Virzion...2 weeks later I received a outrageous bill from Sprint! I was puzzled, so I contacted Sprint,and they asked me if I had activated a cell phone? I told them yes, through Radio Shack..and they stated that was the reason for the high bill! ..That I left the contract early!..Had I been aware of this I would have never Activate a phone!..This was RS fault for not informing me!..A Manger of all people!..My problems with Sprint had just begun!..I was told that all I needed was to pay the activation fees, and I responded, you need to charge that fee to RS!..I. heard from collection,and I was was prepared to pay the fees but I never heard them again...A year later I checked my TRW report and Sprint reported the matter to them....There is a lot more to this Novel but I try ed everything to get this matter resolved with Sprint, but when you are dealing with irresponsible Company and there inept Mangement..and the topper THEY WANT ME BACK!

  • This Sprint promotion makes no sense. Recently switched carriers away from Sprint after many years with them. Anyone coming from AT&T or Verizon will notice a HUGE drop off in both coverage and speed. So what's Sprint's longterm plans? These people will not be happy. Better to fix their network THEN run this type of promotion. However, to ask people to pay a little less for substantially less service is non-sensical. At best, this is an attempt to pilfer people from T-mobile, however the long-term damage to reputation may not be worth it.

This is how sprint operates as well. Calling it high speed and then continue bullshitting the consumer with lies, like we are upgrading the towers. LoL....they should just put it up for sale and accept a buyer, they are a lost cause. You sprint morons can take that and shove it where the sun doesn't shine Posted via the Android Central App
  • Unfortunately I live in the countryside in nys and no network from Sprint or t mobile, so I can't change Posted via the Android Central App
  • Sprint really isn't bad....ONLY if you live in a city with their LTE service or travel to those cities. If you travel a lot by car, I'd say Verizon, based from experience, is the way to go; however I usually only travel by plane now and usually to "more developed" cities that already have the Sprint LTE service, so I am definitely getting my moneys worth being that I use over 50gigs of internet a month because of all the video streaming, and video calls I make.

  • 50gb is alot. But the issue with sprint is , they limit DL speed for video streaming to 1mbps. Don't be a turd and say no....it's in the terms of service. Read 'em Posted via the Android Central App
  • My experience probably isn't typical, but I love Sprint right now. However, I can't believe how things worked out. If you have any sort of decent service, give them a try. It may pay off. http://forums.androidcentral.com/sprint/468118-sprint-offers-cut-t-veriz...
  • Sprint says here, let me sell you this top of the line car, but it doesn't come with a motor, transmission, wheels or brakes, but hey it runs well, great gas mileage. It's sporty. This is sprints problem, it's not outside cosmetics, it's under the hood. And under the hood for sprint can best be explained in 2 words " Abysmal failure ", that rings a bell.....oh yea, it's just like the Obama administration. Sprint is having alot of problems because the customers phones can no longer be powered by bullshit. Jump ship if your smart or even smarter if you just completely avoid this company Posted via the Android Central App
  • But they want you to pay monthly fees for their phones....so ur still in same boat with bad service.... Posted via the Android Central App
