    Any news from Sprint? They seem to be dragging a bit.

    Hopefully they announce the information soon. I was going to go with the AUP, but after thinking about the challenges of going in store to an Apple store I'm hoping that Sprint has a deal that's comparable.

    What was strange is I upgraded to the 6s in February on the 17 month lease. Checked a weak ago, my account shows I am eligible for an upgrade again. So .. as far as I know.. Login Friday morning and place my pre order in, main back the 6s. The message says with an upgrade fee. Have no idea how much that is but when I tested it out with a 6s Plus it doesn't show any upgrade fee applied when trying to check out.

    I'm upgrading to a Black 7 128gb on iPhone Forever. Will be my first time so also curious to hear how the process goes. Currently have a 6s and paying $15/month for the hardware lease. It annoys me that Sprint's website doesn't have monthly lease amounts for each model/storage tier.

    I'm assuming I go to Sprint's website at 3:01am EST and place my order, no hassle.

    Edit: I have not made at least 12 monthly
    payments on my 6s yet, but Sprint's website says I am eligible for an upgrade. Anyone else seeing this?

    I just checked my account thanks to your post, and I had only made 11 of the 12 payments...I did their online chat, and the rep told me it did not matter fwiw, he said I was eligible for the upgrade. It also shows I am eligible on their website.

    Very doubtful. I've checked every year and only see the 2 year contract listed.

    Plan on using the sprint website.

    Hey sprint, your website needs work. Tried multiple times beginning at 3:01am EST to place an iPhone 7 order, but was met with error messages at multiple steps in the process.

    I understand this is a major, high-traffic event, but for as much as you advertise for this, and for how popular everyone knows iPhone is, you should be prepared. Going to bed with no iPhone order placed. Majorly disappointed.

    Same with me. I just finished ordering my iPhone 7 plus. Tired.

    It took me almost 2 hours of REAL frustrating issues with the Sprint site. I have this amazing plan that has been discontinued for a very long time called SERO-P.

    It still has the contract ($450.00) subsidy and the plan is $50.00 a month.

    if it wasn't for my special plan I would have left Sprint as I don't like how we don't have VOLTE yet ( I believe every other carrier has it)

    Ps. I picked up an iPhone 7 plus 256 in black matte. It should ship around the 23rd of Sept. I placed my order at about 3:30am CDT.

    According to Sprint the iPhone Forever program has been discontinued. Current members are fine but it's not possible to sign up for anymore.

    I find that hard to believe, but since this is Sprint we're talking about here, I'm not doubting it. Crazy.

    I just called Sprint and they are basically saying that it's now the same as the leases. You take out the lease and after 12 months you can upgrade. However, your payment is higher b/c it's now spread out among 17 or 18 months instead of 22 or so that the old plans had...
