Nokia Lumia 635 launched by Sprint, it's free on contract

Sprint today finally released a new Windows Phone handset, after a pretty long period of time in which it hadn’t introduced any Microsoft-endorsed phones. As you may already know, Sprint’s new WP device is the Nokia Lumia 635 (previously launched by T-Mobile and AT&T).

Sprint is offering the Lumia 635 for free on contract - which isn’t surprising, since we’re talking about a rather modest smartphone here. Besides all the features included in Windows Phone 8.1, the Lumia 635 offers LTE connectivity, a quad-core 1.2 GHz Snapdragon 400 processor, 512 MB of RAM, 4.5-inch display with 480 x 854 pixels, 5 MP rear camera, and 8 GB of expandable internal memory. You should read our Nokia Lumia 635 review to find out more about the handset.

You can buy the Lumia 635 from Sprint (in cyan - the only color that’s available for now) via the source link below. Sprint’s prepaid brands (Boost Mobile and Virgin Mobile) started selling the Nokia Lumia 635 in December for $99.99, no contract required.

I think the Microsoft branded Lumia 535 is a better choice given the fact that Microsoft is now in the process of replacing all Nokia Lumia smart phones with Microsoft Lumia smart phones

Depends on what your looking for, the bigger screen is nice, but the LTE cannot be ignored.

I was gonna say. With Sprint as the carrier it should be "buy the phone for $50 get free service." Their LTE network sucks. I checked out a coworkers Galaxy S5 a few weeks back when we were driving down I-405 near Seattle and they still only have 3G around here. It should be a crime to charge people for a 4G network when all you provide is 100 Kbps EVDO..... I wish Sprint customers would rise up and kick Sprints butt. I couldn't take it anymore and we finally left a year ago.

lmao. Good upgrade for those stuck on a windows phone on sprint... not! Also free on contract probably means after mail in rebate. Sprint doesn't sell anything for free except for the Iphone 5C or during special promos.

This is probably so Sprint can continue saying customers don't want WP phones and that's why they don't offer them.

Another problem with contract based carriers.. this phone is available on TMO for 99$, but here, you can get it for free! with a 2 year contract and 350 ETF... its BS
