Hahaha... I know, Sprint is losing money keeping you and your dirt cheap 10 lines. They say no way am not giving that guy any deals on our new phones.

But the money you have been saving can surely buy any of those phones if you want to.

I notice the nicer LG phones have really good sound/music output when I stream Bluetooth music through them. Currently using an LG Stylo 5 and the sound is really good. Better if you add an equalizer sound booster app.

you don't have to do that if you are just adding a new line. You only have to do that if you want to add a line AND close a line (e.g. a fancy version of upgrading your existing line)
Is there a guide for doing this? I have a swac account and I just want to upgrade. Even if I lose my number. What are the options. Sprint no contract looking to upgrade to ultra

not familiar with swac, can you add a new line to your account? If so, add a new line, get s20, trade-in. Then, close your existing line.

If adding new line not possible on swac, maybe you can upgrade directly? (though you will only get half the monthly credit)

Unlike the T-Mobile deal I don't see any reason you can't double-dip.


One trade-in is through Best Buy and processed as a down-payment on the 24-month installment plan. No different than just paying $600 down out of my pocket.

The other trade-in is through Sprint directly and is processed as bill credits.

A S8 Active off eBay is $120 in acceptable condition no cracks or burn-in.



This would make an S20 ULTRA:

$1400 - $150 Sprint installment promo - $600 (my current S10 trade-in which I got last year for $120 after trading) - $500 (24 month credit for S8 Trade Sprint BuyBack) + $120 (S8 Active price) = $270 for S20 ULTRA


I've been debating a few days to take the risk and jump on it. I think the risk is low, Sprint has no way of knowing you traded in at Best Buy.


Still a tiny risk that I'm stuck making payments on a $650 phone, but the payoff of getting a S20 Ultra for $270 + $200 in Samsung credits is huge and looks to be low risk.

I should note I mistyped a line.


There are two trade-ins, the Best Buy trade-in which just gets processed as a downpayment because you are trading into Best Buy / Samsung and not Sprint.

Then there's Sprint's Buyback promotion. Which is processed through Sprint as you go to Sprints website and they send you a package.



Since both promotions are different companies, neither promotion should care or know about the other. Which is pretty much Rule #1 in stacking deals.



This deal is unique to Best Buy since Sprint allows the deal through them via 24-month payments where you can put money down. Sprint's own deal only applies to 18-month leases, but the terms of the Best Buy deal seem to allow it to apply to 24-month installment plans.

There's a generic "not combinable with other promotions" but there are no other Sprint promotions on this.

I am currently in Mint and planing to move to sprint. How can I can add multiple add through bestbuy? I am planing to get $125 per month package for five lines.

Also each line is eligible to get this S20 with this offer?

For trading in to sprint with a new line, do you have to wait until you have the new device and number to submit the trade in on sprints website?
