    Hi all,

    Has anyone taken advantage of Sprints Buy One Get One Free iPhone Dea with the 24 monthly installments? I have read all the literature and it seems like a legit deal, especially with the plan discount, but Was wondering if I'm missing something. I understand Sorint I not popular for many, but it works where I am.

    Thanks,

    CFS

    I believe it's a one day deal and you have to add another line with the get one free part.

    It's a legit deal - meaning they are offering it and won't deny it it exists.

    Is there some particular thing you are concerned about?

    Only if you were already in the market for two iPhones is this a good deal. Best buys occasional 200 off on contract deals are better. I snagged a 64gb Verizon iPhone 6 for under $600. This after paying my first months bill and a $350 etf and activation fee.

    I guess I was just wondering if anyone took advantage. I had Sprint 13 years ago, switched to off contract Virgin,mand have been with TMobile for 5 years. I have been looking to get into iOS for some time because I use an iPad and iMac at work. My current bill with TMobile is $90 per month for two lines. With Sprints deal it will be $90 a month for same plan. This is total with iPhones on 24 month installment plans.

    All I can say is it's a good deal I think if you live in a good Sprint area. If you're looking to leave T-Mobile then take advantage of it since you mentioned you were in a good area for Sprint.

    But if T-Mobile is serving you well (at the same price) I'd stay. Maybe use JOD or Jump or something if you really want an iPhone.

    Or if iOS is really something you are wanting to try, an alternative might be to pick up an older phone off eBay or Swappa or some place you trust. You wouldn't necessarily need to have the phone functioning for cellular, but defintetely not iCloud locked.

    I did this with a 3GS my sister gave me a year before I got the iPhone 5. It wasn't my primary phone but it familiarized me with iOS.

    Sorry I can't be of more help, we actually left Sprint after 16 years last September and T-Mobile has been great for us. We replace our two Sprint crap Android tablets with iPad Air 2s and I'm paying the same price I was paying Sprint previously - only now I can actually make phone calls and use data.

    Something to consider when pricing is whether you are figuring in the "half off competitors" pricing Sprint offers. Since this requires a new line be added (for the free phone), make sure you are able o port two numbers and have one of them count as an added line. Unsure if this is exactly your plan, or what, but figured I would point that out in case.

    Yes. Exactly. This would be my plan.

    Thanks for writing. I will take a look at Jump. The reason for moving to an iPhone is because I use a mac and iPad at work and have a Note 4 (Awesome Swappa deal) and have always had an Android. As my work gets a bit more detailed each year, I have come to realize that, while I have loved my Android phones, I feel life would be easier running iOS across the board. Even with Dropbox, Google Drive, and other cross platform apps, I think having an iPhone will make my tech life a bit simpler.

    I haven't bit th bullet yet. Wondering if anyone did and got their first bill. Wondering about any additional fees I may have missed. I have heard some stories online about people's bills not reflecting what they thought they were getting, but not sure if this is the norm or few and far between.

    Thanks!

    I work for Best Buy Mobile, the only catch is the 'adding a new line' some people upgrade 2 of there lines and think they will get the BOGO but it's not true. It's a wonderful thing to get on especially if you get them at Best Buy Mobile because we are doing the exclusive 25GB plan for $50 plus $20 per phone.

    Thanks for the insight. I am always skeptical about cell providers, especially since Tmobile, my current provider is pretty solid in the sense that there are no crazy fees. It's is pretty much my bill and a $5 add on of taxes and other stuff, but my total stays true to my price plan.

    I would definitely be adding because I would be switching to Sprint from another provider. I just wish the had test drive like Tmobike so I could be 100% positive about reception.

    Thanks again.

    If you get the phone at Best Buy you have a 14 day return policy and if you return it in 3 days Sprint waives your activations fees and such. And I believe Sprint is doing a 30 day money back, but I'm not sure it would be something that their corporate locations would be doing.
