My last 2 year contracted ended about 2 years ago when I purchased 2 new iphone 5s from a Sprint store. One of the phones is in bad shape.. the other works perfectly. If I purchase a Sprint compatible iphone5, (not from Sprint) will I have to sign another 2 year contract? Will I lose my current plan? I'm sure there will be an activation fee................ Thanks for all replies.
Thanks for your reply. The phone has actually been dropped a couple of times. The first time the screen cracked and was replaced, the 2nd time, half the screen was black... the other half looked like bad reception from an old tv. Now the "speaker" option turns off and on during a voice conversation... the phone cuts on and off occasionally also, texting is a nightmare as different letters appear which aren't the ones typed. The phone is rebooted and all is well for a short period of time then it starts acting up again.
The store that fixes the phone also sells new and refurbished iphones. I don't want to lease or make payments and I would like to stay away from 2 years contracts.
Yes the store did a reset on the phone. This is probably a coincidence but the phone was upgraded to the new OS just after it was repaired. I doubt that has anything to do with the phone's problem.
10.2.1. I've had Sprint since the Katina flip phones and the Everything Data plan. I upgraded one phone to the Imagine and Sprint tacked on an $10 premium phone fee as the Imagine where considered smartphones. When I upgraded the other to the Imagine, Sprint did the same thing. Next upgrade were the iphone5(s)s which I still have. Sprint changed the name of the fee from premium phone fee to premium data fee. Still can't quite understand what a premium data fee is.
Have you done any research into any other phone company's plans? I understand that each person's phone needs differ but considering unlimited plans do you have an opinion on whose is best? My plan is over 10 years old and I haven't found anything that quite matches it for value even with the added Premium fees. Just wish Sprint still offered the new discounted phones. I paid $149. for my iphone5s with a discount at Best Buy. Guess those days are gone.
