Advice on Cell Phones

JHB 246 August 9, 2015 at 10:21 AM
Time to upgrade 4 cells phones on Sprint and really need advice.

So far we've stuck with iPhones (one 5c, rest 4s). We plan to stay with Sprint and I prefer renewing the two-year contract versus lease payments. We don't need to have the absolute latest/greatest model. None of us wants an overly large device.

Probably looking at iPhone 6, although one family member considering Samsung Galaxy S6.
  • Sprint has no online specials right now. Upgrading to iPhone 6 would be $199.99 and Galaxy S6 $149. (x 4 phones)
  • Sam's is advertising a VIP event next Saturday Get a $150 Sam's Club Gift Card with any activation on installment. But no details.
  • Best Buy has $100 off, so we could get the iPhone 6 (16GB) for $99. Galaxy S6 32 GB $149.

With school starting up, are there likely to be additional specials to wait for?
Anyone familiar with Sam's offer?
Any good websites to watch for information?

Would also like advice on recycling existing phones. Sprint will pay $0-$25.

Thanks for any guidance!

Are there anything wrong with your current phones? You don't need to buy new devices to keep up your service. If you're set on those two phone models, then I would look on eBay or Craigslist & get a bulk deal. There are reputable sellers on both sites that offer guarantees on the ESN, and Craigslist may point you in a good direction of a local cellphone shop that can just sell you the devices.

If you're not looking for those two models, or you're set on shopping at Sprint, look for an iPhone 5s, or an Android from a big name company (Samsung, Motorola, LG). Checkout the Motorola E, G or others that Sprint has promos on.

You can get contract free iPhone 6 or Samsung Galaxy S6 for around $400 from eBay or Swappa. Your monthly bill will decrease to $100 for 4 lines before tax and employee discount.
