Sprint Corporation (NYSE:S) has confirmed an early-upgrade program that they are launching called “One Up.” Customers will be able to pay in monthly installments and change phones once per year. According to CNET, the One Up has an introductory offer of a $15 discount on their Unlimited, My Way, and All-In plans. There is no money down on the device for a limited time.
With Sprint joining the non-contract crowd, that means all four major U.S. telecommunications companies all have monthly installment plans. Sprint was the last of the four carriers to launch the program. Sprint’s One Up plan works with tablets as well.
One Up subscribers can get an unlimited talk, text, and data plan for as low as $65 per month. This is better than T-Mobile, who offers plans as low as $70 per month. New customers or existing customer that have owned their phone for at least 12 months are eligible for the plan. Sprint customers that are eligible for an upgrade can sign up, but they do not have to trade their phone back.
