I believe the iPhone is definitely coming in October. Question is, will Sprint let me upgrade my contract earlier than 2 years to get it? I am not eligible for a 2 year upgrade until July 2012. Will they make me pay the regular price for an October upgrade since they know everyone will want the phone? I want to get it when it comes out in October since Apple would probably have a whole new phone by July 2012.
I just hope that Sprint will have some flexibility when it comes to upgrading phone when the iPhone comes out.
Hello 1113Harrison, I know that Iphone is a hot subject around here as of late, as you are likely aware we cannot comment one way or another on if we are getting an Iphone. At this time I have not been told anything which would lead me to believe that you will be allowed to upgrade early. this may change in the future, but I have no way to know.
I think it would be standard upgrades. I don't recall any other carrier allowing upgrades when they got the iphone. Now if you were upgrading your plan too, say to an everything plan, then they might be a little more flexible. That's what AT&T did. Since there were few smart phones at the time, they developed a plan for the iphone. Current customers could upgrade their plans + extend their contracts, for discounts on the iphone. The discounts weren't great - not as good as being out of contract.
Sometimes it's not bad to wait it out on a new phone. Youre letting other people work out the bugs.
I can't see Sprint allowing you to upgrade10 months early. I would suggest that you get the 900 minute plan and wait three months to be a gold member. That's what I did, but remember, it's expensive. After my plan, $10.00 premium data, and insurance, plus fees my monthly bill is $116.00 and change. The iPhone is a great device, I have owned the 3Gs and the iPhone 4 and like I said, it's a great device but you can't customize anything without jail breaking it and voiding your warranty. That's why I sold my iPhone 4 a got an EVO. Couldn't be happier!
Sprint is proud to have been named to The Civic 50, an annual survey of America?s most community-minded companies.
