New Galaxy Forever program

Hmm this is something that I might be interested in..

Galaxy S7 and S7 edge pre-orders start Feb. 23, in-store sales commence Mar. 11 | Android Central


Sprint will offer the new Galaxy S7 and S7 edge for pre-order Feb. 23. In select stores for trial Feb. 26. Purchase in-store Mar. 11. The company will also unlock its new Galaxy Forever program, allowing customers to lease either smartphone with the possibility to upgrade to a new Galaxy handset after 12 months on the lease.

Re: New Galaxy Forever program

any idea if existing customers can take advantage of this without getting hit?

Re: New Galaxy Forever program

what do you mean by taking a hit?

As per the official announcement page, it states


for a limited time, new and existing Sprint customers can lease or buy one Galaxy S7 or S7 edge and get a second one for half the price.


So it looks like existing customers can do this as well.

See official Announcment page

Re: New Galaxy Forever program

So here is my question. I have two lines with Galaxy S5s that still have $189 left to pay on each.  For new customers, they would pay that outstanding amount to get them to switch.

However, it would seem that as an existing customer, I would need to pay those off to convert to the Galaxy Forever program with no perks?

Seems like I would be better off going to Verizon and let them pay off my old phones.

Decisions, decisions...

Re: New Galaxy Forever program

and once youre a long term customer of Verizons you'll need to the same exact thing to get what the new customers are getting..the vicious cycle of cell phone life.

Re: New Galaxy Forever program

So if i try and upgrade online right now it says they want a $300-$350 down payment. Is that the case even if i switch to the "galaxy forever" plan?

Re: New Galaxy Forever program

Yup, that is truth.  I have been with Sprint for like 15 years and I don't love the idea of switching.  But, I also don't like waiting all the way until September to get the S7.

It is a shame these companies don't do more for their long term customers.  Now THAT would be innovative!

Re: New Galaxy Forever program

I think it will be here for good just like they do with the Iphone Forever Program that's my guess so even if you can't upgrade until this fall you should be fine.

Re: New Galaxy Forever program

Plus, at that point the S7 will already be well over a half year old and well on the way to S8.  That has been my problem.  I am stuck in the S5 for 6 more months!  Ugh!

Re: New Galaxy Forever program

yep, thats the other worry. On a brighter note any issues with the phone should be worked out by then
