Leaked memo alludes to the cancellation of Sprint's early upgrade program come June 1st

If things all pan out according to this new leaked memo, it seems as though Sprint’s policy on allowing customers to upgrade their phone early by 10 to 14 days prior to their official date of eligibility, will be no more come June 1st. As the memo so kindly details, it’s due to “high costs”...

It was a decent perk. It was actually only on the 18th of the month before you could over-ride your eligability if it was due on the first. And only third party sellers could do it. Corp sprint stores are going to have a party if this is true.

For every memo that's good for our customers, they give us about 10-15 ones that are bad. So this is just business as usual.

another cost of business of bowing to Apple to carry the iphone. good for iphone lovers, bad for the rest of the ecosystem as everyone has to pay for it in some way.

john v, sounds like he has such disdain for sprint. so big deal that they have to wait the ten or so days, go after verizon that is axing their grandfathered in unlimited data, or at&t that drops call all the time and try getting a customer service rep, i have been witht the top 4 cell companies, and yes verizon was the best, t mobile had great customer service, at&t had me on hold for so long that i just had to walk away, sprint i save 40 bucks a month have unlimited data( and yes its slower that verizon but i'm not that much in a hurry. i drop maybe one call in two weeks. so i think i will stick to sprint, john v should learn how to report news objectively

Soon they will be saying unlimited data is better for them too, just wait.
