    That’s what happens when you’re dead last and it’s not even close.

    Nope, you couldn’t pay me to move to Sprint.

    I am sure they will.

    At this point Sprint is not trying to stay in business. They are trying to make themselves attractive to a buyer. Artificially inflated customer numbers because of a free year of service and what will probably be a free phone makes them look more attractive.

    It's typical Sprint. Jack up the numbers and eat the debt on the back end in the hope something happens in between.

    I'm hoping for the return of 2 year contracts, our son got his IPhone 7 last year on a 2 year contract. I have the 6S on lease, and didn't bother to upgrade for the 7 when I could've with the annual upgrade plan. I prefer to own the phone at the end, it would've been cheaper to get the phone on a 2 year contract. By the time I paid the lease payments, and bought the phone at the end, it was much more expensive then the 2 year contract.

    My daughter is anxiously waiting for me to upgrade, she will be handed down the 6S when I do.

    I see on the other Sprint preorder thread that we will be able to order on Apples site with 2 year contract- the 8 starts at $349 and the X starts at $549!!!

    Still waiting for Sprint to post their deal on their site- but soooooo excited I can do the 2 year contract!!!

    Two year contracts are not coming back for Sprint.

    Sprint has killed them three times now. They are dead to Sprint.

    Your only option is through Apple.

    How can Apple offer a 2 year sprint contract when sprint itself does not?

    I strongly Suggest People wait for the 2018 OLED 6.4" IPhone X PLUS. This is just anttempt to Lock People into 2 Years.

    The IPhone Every Year Plans are much nicer and gets you a new phone each year.

    If you try to do that on the Apple site, it won't go through. Apple needs to change that.

    I supposed it is because technically the deal you have with the device is probably just with Apple while the plan is with Sprint.

    I really don't know why, I just know that it is.

    What do you call an iPhone on Sprint? iPod Touch. Sprint is WORTHLESS.

    Did anyone preorder the 8 or 8+ with the 2 year contract on Apples site? Wonder
    Just wondering if anyone had any luck preordering the 8 or 8+ with the 2 year contract for Sprint on Apples site. Apple is still showing the 2 year contracts for Sprint on their website.

    I disagree.

    It's about location. Sprint is pretty good in a lot of places. I don't happen to be in those places a lot of the time which is why we ported to T-Mobile, but those places do exist.
