We posted something regarding this subject almost three months ago, but it appears that the topic has surfaced again. Just recently, an internal memo has reportedly leaked, and it seems to indicate that the fourth biggest wireless carrier in America is planning, yet again, to get rid of its traditional two year subsidized smartphone contract, effective on August 26th of this year.
Here we go again, some subscribers of Sprint may be thinking that right now. The fourth biggest wireless carrier in the United States is apparently back to eliminating its two year agreements for mobile users. As reported by Android Central, an internal memo was retrieved, purportedly showing that the mobile service provider is planning to stop offering contracts with subsidized devices to subscribers beginning on May 24th of this year. With two year contracts ditched, Sprint’s customers can either opt for purchasing devices via the wireless carrier’s Easy Pay and Lease installment plans, or buy handsets at full retail price.
Back in January early this year, it was reported that Sprint had plans to get rid of its two year contracts. But it appears that the fourth biggest wireless carrier in the United States has changed its mind. Indeed, the mobile service network provider has decided to bring back its contract plan that comes with subsidized smartphone, while at the same time, promising to provide even more options to its subscribers this time around.
Times are really changing, with a lot of wireless carriers having already started getting rid of their standard two year contracts. T-Mobile got the ball rolling with its Uncarrier makeover over two years ago, and others then followed suit. Before the end of 2015, AT&T, the number two mobile service provider in the United States, revealed its plans of scrapping its two year smartphones starting this year. Meanwhile, industry leader Verizon Wirelesseliminated its service contracts back in August of last year.
It appears that the largest wireless carrier in the United States is trying to change how its subscribers should pay for their wireless service. Verizon Wireless recently unveiled a set of new data plans that will have its subscribers pay for their handset in regular monthly installments, or purchase it right there and then. These new plans will become live on August 13th of this year.
