    I was on the iPhone forever program with sprint. I upgraded and chose the 17month lease? Did they take iPhone forever away? I saw some people said "according to a reddit user it's gone". Just curious to know if I chose the wrong thing even though I didn't see an "iPhone Forever" option.

    I think they now have generic 17 and 18 month lease programs that allow you to upgrade after 12 payments. No more iPhone Forever branding, though.

    JTravers is correct. I tweeted the Sprint CEO on Friday and to my surprise he responded. He said the iPhone Forever thing no longer exists, but the 17 and 18 month lease options allow an upgrade every 12 months.

    Great deal for that one year, but iPhone Forever was unsustainable at the prices they were charging.

    It seems like Sprint makes moves to counter T Mobile but do them too quickly and without thinking them through lol!

    The difference between skating to where the puck is instead of where it's going.
