OVERLAND PARK, Kan. – Jan.15, 2014 – Go ahead, Sprint customers – ask today for that shiny, just-launched, perfect-for-you phone you’ve been drooling over – and you’ll receive it –today. Sprint customers don’t have to be patient anymore when it comes to phone upgrades; on Sprint Easy Pay customers can upgrade whenever they want.

Existing Easy Pay participants can also upgrade their phone whenever they want but must first pay off their balance to receive a new phone.
Once they’ve upgraded and purchased their new phone through Sprint Easy Pay, Sprint customers have the option of keeping their old phone or selling it back through Sprint’s highly acclaimed Buyback program.
“With technology changing as quickly as it does, we know our customers don’t want to wait a certain amount of time before they can switch to the latest and greatest phone,” said Tom Roberts, Sprint senior vice president for marketing. “Now, our customers can get what they want, when they want it – along with a won’t-break-the-bank way to pay.”
With the advent of Sprint Framily. Sprint customers (new and existing) can spend as little as $25 a month on their Sprint bill. When current customers move to the Sprint Framily Plan they can create a new group with any phone lines on their account and invite friends to join Sprint and be a part of their Framily plan. 
More on Sprint Framily

As more people are added to the group, up to 10 phone lines, the savings increase for everyone on the plan. Because each account can be billed separately, customers can choose who is in their group. 
For one line of service, new Sprint customers pay $55 per month per line for unlimited talk, text and 1GB of data. For each additional new Sprint customer who joins the Framily group, the cost per person goes down $5 a month up to a maximum monthly discount of $30 per line. When you build a group of at least seven people, everyone gets unlimited talk, text and 1GB of data for $25 per month per line (pricing excludes taxes and surcharges).
All members of the group can customize their plan to meet their unique needs. For only $20 per month per line, Framily members can buy up to unlimited data and get a new phone every year. Plan members can share the savings, without the hassle of sharing a bill. Each account can be billed separately. Unlimited features are while on the Sprint network.

You would regret that later on trust me lol. I was with sprint for 5 years and I didn't know what I was missing out until I switched to t-mobile.
Sprint has the best customer service, the worst coverage, the price is too much compared to the coverage. Oh also they have unlimited shltty data, or at least they had, Idk why it shows they five you 1gb data

Lol!! This packaging already exist with some major carriers in Canada. The US carriers should try and keep up with the times.

Can upgrade whenever but can't choose whatever blackberry we want. Sprint only offers the Q10 and I already have one. I thought they passed up on the Z10 to get the Z30.

Yep, that was my assumption as well. But I'm happy with my Sprint BlackBerry Q10. Nice begin surrounded by unlimited LTE. :)

A rewrapped way of saying you can upgrade your phone early and pay for it over time. Oh boy, consumerism at its finest.

After the changes made my T-Mobile, and the superior networks of AT&T and Verizon, why is sprint even on the radar? So glad I left them last year when they didn't carry the Z10

"Go ahead, Sprint customers – ask today for that shiny, just-launched, perfect-for-you phone you’ve been drooling over – and you’ll receive it –today..." = unless it's a blackberry...

This is something that Mr. Chen can use, for example, a joint partnership with carriers where they get to replace there existing phones for new shiny BlackBerry 10 devices, all powered by the best mobile OS to date. I wonder how many would bite on a deal like this?

How come Canadian carriers don't follow suit? Bell has no upgrade plan that I know of, unless you want to pay an arm and a Leg.

Sprint....what a bunch of copy cats! making that statement like they came up with it. Every carrier is copying T-Mobile now.....trying to at least.
