As a way to end the typical two-year contracts, Sprint announces its new iPhone Forever promotion. The newest offer is very simple: new and current customer of Sprint can get an iPhone for only $22 per month, putting an end to down payments when purchasing new Apple devices. What’s best about the new plan is being able to upgrade to the latest iPhone as soon as it is available without any additional charges. Customers who qualify will get a 16GB iPhone 6 via Sprint stores, at Sprint.com, Best Buy, Target, and 1-800-SPRINT1.
Also, new and current customers can also save $7 per month by getting an iPhone 6 and upgrading it before December 31st. The normal monthly fee returns to $22 in the following upgrade on or after Dec. 31.
For customer still in a contract with another carrier, Sprint can make the switch for you easily simply by paying off your old contract and phone, so new customer won’t have to.
Sprint may have the most customer with newer devices in the near future if it succeeds with this plan.
“We asked ourselves, ‘What could we do that would move our customers forward with the latest and greatest technology every day?,” stated Marcelo Claure, Sprint CEO. “We decided: How awesome would it be if anytime customers don’t have the latest iPhone, they are eligible to upgrade, and have it be as simple as handing us your existing iPhone and picking up a new one – all included in your monthly rate.”
Sprint also released a comparison chart and an iPhone price chart (if you want more memory on the iPhone):
