Sprint Framily Plan: How an existing Sprint customer can join a Framily group

I just switched to a Framily plan and the 1st chat rep I talked to said that my new plan will take place on June 8. So instead of paying $62 per month on Everything Data 450, I will only be paying $55 per month on Framily Plan.

I don't use that much data so the 1GB is more than enough. The thing is, I want to joing a Framily group. So the next chat rep said that she can immediately switch my plan but since I still have 10 days left in my old plan, I will be charged a prorated charge of $19 and an advanced charge of $55. Which will make the total to $74 for this month's bill prior to my cutoff which is June 8.

Anyway, she also told me that the only way for existing Sprint customers to join a Framily group in one of 2 ways

1. Billing address for both accounts should be same

or

2. Change of ownership (Transfer of Liability)

I think 1 is easier and less problems. You can change your billing address to match the Framily group you are joining in then setup your account to paperless billing. The only thing I don't like about this is that my billing address is in Oregon and so I don't get charge as much in taxes and fees. Maybe find a Framily group that is from Oregon.

Actually, it's even simpler than that. You temporarily switch your address to theirs for the duration of the Live Chat. Then you switch back and you're done!

Worst thing about the Framily plan is you will no longer be considered for upgrade discounts every 2yrs or whatever the time frame is. You will now have to pay full price for your phones. This was the reason I didn't switch to the Framily plan. I never have money to fork over $400+ for a new phone.

soliciting for or offering to be a sprint framily member is a form of self promotion, and is not allowed here.
