Sprint will launch its early upgrade program known as “One Up” on September 20th. The trend of carriers using these programs began with T-Mobile’s “Jump” and has now become a widespread phenomenon
What began with T-Mobile has now become a common act of popularity-upsizing in case of each carrier. The latest network to jump on the bandwagon is none other than Sprint. Sprint is to launch its program termed One Up on the 20th of September. The idea behind the scheme is to let the valued clientele pay for novel smart phones or tablets via installments. Finally, by the end of the year, they can exchange their devices for brand new ones.
Already, T-Mobile, AT&T and Verizon have their personal programs. Termed “Jump”, “Next” and “Edge” they are not exactly the bee’s knees. However, according to the latest news, One Up may live up to its name. It just might prove to give Sprint’s customers what they want, when they want it.
One Up allows savings of up to $220 on an annual basis when compared to Jump. The lack of an additional monthly fee is the reason behind this cash discount. Furthermore, there is no down payment which is good news for customers who don’t have a whole lot of cash to splash on the service.
Via Sprint’s methodology, a communications device that is in itself worth approximately $650 will only cost an extra $27 within the means of your monthly budget. While such marketing may reek of the con man’s ways, it still has its advantages especially for those who can’t afford to pay in lump sum.
