Sprint might bend over backwards to get AT&T and Verizon iPhone users to switch

AT&T and Verizon iPhone users might want to try walking into a Sprint store or calling them on the phone and asking the question below. It might go a long way.

“What will you do to get me to switch to a Sprint iPhone?”

A compendium of replies boils down to the following five incentives:

1. Will imediately replace an AT&T or Verizon iPhone with a Sprint iPhone 4S of similar storage capacity for $99

2. Will port existing AT&T or Verizon phone number and reimburse “any” contract early termination fee

3. $69.99/month unlimited phone, data, text, with no additional cost for tethering

4. Will provide a free macrocell for use in your home

5. Will grant an immediate upgrade to Apple’s next-gen iPhone upon availability for the normal subsidized price minus $99 (i.e. amount paid for the shorter iPhone 4S)

If you’ve tried asking a Sprint representative the question above, please let us know below what they told you.

[Thanks to MacDailyNews readers too numerous to mention individually for the heads up.]


  1. damn…for all that, i’d consider it. however, did apple and sprint finally work out their differences? for awhile, there were significant problems on the sprint network.

    1. That’s what I’d like to know. At&t network is why I stay not their fees. I’m not one bit considering Verizon and only Sprint is making effort at getting customers but still worried about their network.

  2. I switched from AT&T to sprint on the first day they offered the iPhone. Sprint’s browser speed leaves a lot to be desired. I thought AT&T was slow…

  3. I did call Sprint to see what I can get and the unlimited data and phone plan isnt accurate. Unlimited phone service is only to mobile carriers not landlines and you have to pay an additional $10 for the data plan to get unlimited. As far as getting the iPhone 4S they will not upgrade you when the next phone comes out until two years have passed.

  4. I called Sprint. I didn’t get any special extras by switching, but I chose to go with them anyways. With AT&T, I paid on average $140-$170 a month for one line. With Spint, I’d save close to $100 a month plus I get my unlimited data back. I’m happy.

  5. I called my local Sprint store and talked to the manager. I confirmed that NOTHING as far as what the five incentives were offered. No $99 iPhone 4S, no pay the remainder of my AT&T contract termination fee, no $69.99 unlimited everything with tethering plan, no upgrade to the phone 5 minus the $99, etc. So basically it is no deal…check the Sprint website too and no promotion. If anyone DOES get any of the 5 incentives, please post and let me (us MacDaily News readers) know. If it sounds too good to be true…..
    Hey, prove me wrong! Thanks!
