Sprint Offering $400 to New Customers
Who Activate Three Lines or More
While Sprint's recent earnings were less awful than usual
, there's still a lot of ground left to cover if the company wants to be in the same competitive ball park as its bigger brothers AT&T and Verizon. To try and shore up that gap, Phone Arena
notes that Sprint is now offering users $400 of instant in-store credit for anyone who activates three or more lines on an Everything Data Share or Simply Everything Data plan. For users who can't make it into the store, the new promo gives online users an $100 American Express reward card and will waive the $36 activation fee. Obviously you'll still need to sign up for a two-year contract in either instance.

Sprint Too Expensive For its notable lack of native coverage, Sprint simply isn't cheap enough. Lower the monthly price even more and then it becomes a realistic alternative.

Re: Sprint Too Expensive Go with their prepaid partners. You get the Sprint network and at a price point that's appropriate for the services rendered.

Never looked back. My bill was cut in half and I have reliable service.

I commend Sprint for trying. Sprint is trying very hard to appeal to the mobile phone industry and encourage users to switch to them. They do have me considering it, although I need to take a closer look at coverage in my area. It's definitely a possibility for me, and the $400 for new customers definitely sweetens the pot.

Postpaid Still too Expensive I'll keep my $40 everything talk, text, and web, thank you very much. I wish them luck though, as the postpaid customers help bump up Sprint's bottom line that the prepaid customers enjoy.
Sooo... They will charge the "full" price for the phones, right?
Resellers could still be a better deal
I've just left them for ST (Walmart/Tracfone/ATT sim) cause Sprint initiated yet another round of Discount Purge. 2 years of $70 a month for 450 minutes and unlimited data and they're still unhappy?

Similar Deal that I got 1 year ago 11 months ago I switched to Sprint. They were offering $125 cash for every line that you port to Sprint from another wireless carrier and you buy a smart phone. It was something less (like $50) if you didn't get a smart phone. I paid their normal new customer price for the Android phones and they credited the $125 to my account. This was per line, and I had 4 numbers I ported, so I got $500 credited back to my account.
Overall we're happy with Sprint. Coverage is not as good as our previous carrier. I am seriously considering pre-paid in a year when my 2 yr contract is up. As others have said, it's a better deal.
