Has anyone ever been successful at getting sprint or any other carrier to let you upgrade at the subsidized price after only 1 yr? I've been with sprint for 10 yrs, and you'd be surprised the things I've gotten them to do for me in the area of credits and phone upgrades. I'm going to attempt to get a 1 yr early upgrade for the new iPhone. The most I've accomplished recently was a $75 credit, and that was after telling them that I'm never switching to a new carrier because I'm too lazy. I think this new challenge will take at least a 3 hr phone call, but I think I might be able to pull this off. I want to hear from folks that do similar things with their carrier. Let the flaming begin.
