Our family has ordered 5 phones (2 of which are smart phones) and are planning upgrading to a data plan but I am wondering about the upgrade fees on the phones. I am aware that there is a $36 per phone but I have read before that it would cap at $150 for upgrading several phones on a family data plan. I went to a Sprint store to confirm if that would be the case and I was told that that information was wrong and my family would be charged $36 per phone for a grand total of $180. So I'm wondering which is it. Are we going to be charged $150 or $180 when upgrading to the new phones?
Hi YoojinL, thanks for the post and welcome to the Community. This is a great question and here is the answer: Sprint limits upgrade fees to $150.00 if you - the customer - upgrades several phones at the same time. So - as long as you upgrade all of the phones at the same time - your upgrade fee will cap off at $150.00. Thanks for being a valued Sprint customer, your business is appreciated!
Thank you very much for the clarification. I have another question if I may so ask. We're currently out of contract right now so I'm wondering if we'd have to pay prorate charges when we upgrade the phones before the billing cycle finishes.
I apologize for the abusive language in the previous post YoojinL - here is the answer to your question: Prorated charges occur when you change your service on a date other than your bill cycle date - so, in the above example: yes there would be proration charges.
