Sprint offers discount to try to get AT&T, T-Mobile enterprise customers to switch
Recently, Sprint was so interested in taking customers away from merger partners AT&T and T-Mobile, that they offered to pay the customer's $175 Early Termination Fee if they would switch while still under contract to either mobile operator. Now, a leaked photo of a Sprint internal document reveals that the nation's third largest carrier will send a mailer out to AT&T and T-Mobile enterprise customers, offering them a 12% discount, a deal on two phones and a $175 port-in credit.

According to the document, Sprint is aiming the mailer to business customers with 1-99 employees in Chicago, Miami, Colorado, Phoenix, Utah, Houston, Tampa, Minnesota, Kansas, East Michigan, Orange County, L.A. Metro, Orlando, New York City and Dallas/Ft. Worth. Those receiving the offer can pick up the recently launched Motorola XPRT, a BlackBerry-esque Android handset that is similar to the Motorola DROID Pro at Verizon, or the BlackBerry Style, a flip phone loaded with BlackBerry 6 OS and a WebKit browser. The BlackBerry Style is a free device with the offer, while the Motorola XPRT is discounted to $129.99 for those taking advantage of the deal.

The document says that the mailer will be sent out late this month, and that the deal is available through July 23rd. As we closer to government approval of AT&T's purchase of T-Mobile, the more desperate Sprint seems to get.
