Here is the T&C for SFL:

https://www.sprint.com/en/support...ation.html


"

Sprint Flex is our next evolution of lease and a smart new way to get your phone from Sprint.

Here's how it works:

Pick your phone. Pay our lowest out of pocket today when you finance it over 18 months.
You can choose to upgrade and return your phone after 12 payments.
Annual upgrades are always included with our iPhone Forever, Galaxy Forever and Sprint Flex Deals programs at no additional charge. You can upgrade to the latest model any time after 12 payments.
Or if you chose any other phone and the $5/mo. add-on, you can upgrade after 12 monthly payments.
Own your phone.* After 18 months, you can choose to own it by paying one lump sum payment or 6 monthly payments. It's your choice.
Continue making payments. Not ready to make a decision? You are in control. Simply continue making month-to-month payments. These payments do not go toward ownership.
Return your phone. You also have the option of returning your phone to Sprint at the end of your lease term.

If you are unsure if you have a Sprint Flex lease, you can check your agreement online.

Go to sprint.com/mysprint and sign in.
Scroll to the phone you are leasing and click "View agreement."
If you are a Sprint Flex customer, you will see Sprint Flex Lease under my device agreement.

*Purchase option is not available for customers who have a rent charge and live in DE, NJ, NY, ND, PA or PR

This payment option (most lease agreements before 7/14/17) gives customers the flexibility to select a phone for a lower monthly cost versus purchasing the device. With lease, Sprint owns the phone. At the end of your lease term, you can return it to us and upgrade, purchase the phone and own it outright or continue making monthly lease payments.

Flex lease. At the end of the term you're able to buy it for the remainder of the balance or just give it back and pick up a new phone. You're also able to hand it back over after 12 months and grab another phone. It's nothing more than having a baked in trade in value if you decide you don't want to pay the balance and sell it yourself.

Might be a pretty good deal if it was like the Essential $5 Phone Deal, anyone know the terms for buy out price for this?

Buy out is full price of the phone. The discount is spread out thru monthly credits

I added a new line to my the Unliminted Freedom plan and I got the iPhone X at a monthly discount of $20/month for 18 months ($360) and I can purchase the phone for $250 at the end of the term for a total cost of the phone being $610+tax.

Background: I have been with Sprint for 5+ yrs and I switched my grandfathered plan (1500 mins and unlimited data) to Freedom Unlimited plan after chatting with an online rep. He messed up and it was in writing that I'd be entitled to the 5 line for $100 plan (technically it is supposed to be only for new customers and the promotion is $100 for 2 lines - unlimited everything and lines 3-5 free until 3/31/19 as long as you sign up for autopay).

Any Best buy straight deals are not Monthly credits, they pay it straight away as down payment from their end and report to sprint, so it comes down to 20$ a month for this phones, then comes the buy out/purchase price option comes into the picture which is $250 for this phone ($41.67 which is regular price). If you see on the top its Save $390, which means 1000-390 = $610 plus taxes for the phone. Hope this helps clarify.

Explain this tiny little print: "Total savings of $390.06 includes $21.67/mo. carrier bill credit for 18 months. Bill credits end when phone balance is paid off."

This is monthly bill credits that end if the phone is paid off early (based on retail price). You are misinformed.

Ohh yeah, i read that too. But somehow i got a colleague who got this working and paid off the phone. He claimed that he got that for 610$, And usually i purchase lot of phones through Best Buy - Sprint and get these sort of deals. Even that small fine print raised some questions. Tricky though!

Does anybody know how to get a new phone and keep the remainder of your BYOD free year?


I was told originally that you could upgrade to a new phone after 120 days, and because they specifically went out of their way to distinguish that from the 90 day wait to swap your BYOD for another paid off completely owned phone, you'd think it had to mean in 120 days you could get a new phone from them.


It's not like the $200 subsidy days where the cost of the phone is baked into your service fee, so the argument that a free year of data would mean a free device as well doesn't add up. Them refusing to sell me a phone is simply then walking away from whatever percentage of the $1100 cost of a phone Sprints share is.


I tried the obvious things like maybe they only allow it when you buy/lease directly from Sprint.com -- but the final step before completing order is to change plans. Hell, I even tried buying an iPhone outright from the Apple store paid in full (making the "credit card" payment the equivalent of your phones lease price), like the manager of the mall Sprint store told me to, but it wouldn't let me because to activate it required switching to a $100 a month plan.


Speaking to India over the phone, they of course barely understood what I was saying , and thought I had trouble activating the phone altogether (like a faulty Sim card) rather than simply not wanting to change plans. They said they'd call me back and never did. The mall manager as well.
