Essential Phone coming to all Sprint stores on September 14
The wait is finally over and the Essential Phone will be available for purchase in all Sprint retail channels on September 14. The only carrier in the United States that sells the Essential Phone, Sprint announced that, for a limited time, customers can lease it for $14.58 per month and take advantage of the best price for fully featured Unlimited data among national carriers.
Basically, you'll get 50% off Essential Phone and you won't have to pay anything ($0 down) with 18 Sprint Flex Lease payments, thus saving more than $260. On top of that, the Essential 360-degree camera costs just $199.99 or $16.67 per month for 12 months with Installment Billing.
Using Sprint Flex Lease will enable customers to lease the Essential Phone and have the option to upgrade or purchase later. The carrier allows consumers to choose whether they want to buy the phone or not later on, not when they decide to pick it up.
The unlocked Essential Phone was only available for pre-order online via Essential's store, but orders have been shipped later than expected. Thankfully, starting tomorrow, customers will be able to try it out in all Sprint retail stores before deciding whether to buy it or not.
