Sprint is offering a year of free service if you switch

If you happen to be on the fence with your particular carrier and have been considering switching to Sprint, the Now Network has a pretty worthwhile deal in place that might convince you.

The promotion will be around until January 31, and a family of up to five lines can take advantage of it. You will need to switch over from another postpaid carrier plan to be eligible. Once you’re on Sprint you’ll get unlimited data, talk, text, up to 1080p streaming, and 10GB of mobile hotspot.


Now for the fine print. You will need to bring over an unlocked smartphone — one that’s capable of working on the Sprint network, obviously — and sign up for service. The smartphone also needs to be one of the following eligible devices:

  • Alcatel IDOL5
  • Apple iPhone 5c (Verizon only)
  • Apple iPhone 5s (Verizon only)
  • Apple iPhone 6
  • Apple iPhone 6 Plus
  • Apple iPhone 6s
  • Apple iPhone 6s Plus
  • Apple iPhone 7 (Verizon only)
  • Apple iPhone 7 Plus (Verizon only)
  • Apple iPhone 8 (Verizon only)
  • Apple iPhone 8 Plus (Verizon only)
  • Apple iPhone SE
  • Apple iPhone X (Verizon only)
  • Essential Phone
  • Google Nexus 5 (16 & 32 GB – black/white/red) (Verizon only)
  • Google Nexus 5X (all versions)
  • Google Nexus 6 (32 & 64 GB – black/white)
  • Google Nexus 6P (all versions)
  • Google Pixel
  • Google Pixel XL
  • Google Pixel 2
  • Google Pixel XL 2
  • HTC One A9 (Sprint Version only)
  • LG X Charge
  • moto e4
  • moto e4 plus
  • moto g4
  • moto g4 play
  • moto g4 plus
  • moto g5 plus
  • moto g5s plus special edition
  • moto x pure edition
  • moto x4
  • moto z2 play
  • Orbic Wonder
  • Samsung Galaxy Note8 Special Edition
  • Samsung Galaxy S7 edge Special Edition
  • Samsung Galaxy S7 Special Edition
  • Samsung Galaxy S8 (Verizon, AT&T and T-Mobile)
  • Samsung Galaxy S8+ (Verizon, AT&T and T-Mobile)
  • Samsung Galaxy S8 Special Edition
  • Samsung Galaxy S8+ Special Edition

Once you bring over an eligible device, you will then need to buy a SIM kit, which is $10 for shipping and another $2.99 for the SIM card. When that arrives and you’ve got your phone, just activate the handset on the Sprint network and you should be good to go.

One final note: If you sign up for this deal, you can’t upgrade your smartphone for four months after you start service. If you want to get a new phone before you’ve been with the carrier for the four month mark, you’ll need to pay full price for the handset of your choice.

As is par for the course with any type of big promo from a carrier, there are a lot of hoops to jump through, but if you’ve got an eligible device and want to save some money every month for a year, this is a nice option. For example, Sprint says Verizon customers can save upwards of $900 for that year’s worth of service.

Do you plan on taking advantage of the deal?
