Yes, you read that right. You can get a free Samsung Galaxy S10 just for switching to Sprint. If you bring your old number with you, you can also get a $100 prepaid Mastercard. All you have to do is sign up for a new line of service on Sprint's Flex Lease program.

The Flex Lease is an 18-month commitment. You will need approved credit, and these phones require a new line of service. After that time is up, you can return the phone and upgrade to a new model or buy the rest of the price of the phone. If you choose to buy out the phone instead of upgrading to whatever new phone is out at the time, you can either pay off the rest in one lump sum or choose a six-month payment plan.

The Galaxy S10 would normally require an extra $37.50 added to your monthly bill, so you're saving all that money every month you go with this plan. And you can choose your favorite color from Prism White, Prism Blue, and Prism Black.

The $100 prepaid Mastercard requires you port-in your number when you switch. You'll also need to lease a phone and register online, which you're already doing through the deal above. Then you'll need to keep active on that new line for at least 60 days before the Mastercard is shipped to you. None of that is very difficult, so it's really just a bonus $100 for making the move to Sprint.

If you haven't had a chance to check it out yet, our review of the Galaxy S10 paints a clear picture. It has one of the best smartphone displays we've ever seen, powerful technology, and three cameras that include one 16MP ultra wide-angle camera you'll just want to mess around with. The review said, "the Galaxy S10 gets as close as possible to fulfilling the promise of being the best phone for the widest range of people out there" and reviewer Andrew Martonik added, "I can recommend a Galaxy S10 or S10+ to anyone and not worry that it'll be missing something they want or rely on in a modern high-end smartphone."

Upgrading to a new smartphone can be complicated, even one as great as the S10. We've got everything you need to know about the device, whether you should upgrade from a slightly older generation, and all the best accessories you'll need to go with your new purchase.
