Switch to Sprint and receive a year of free unlimited talk, text and data (starts June 30th)

Today, Sprint has announced a spectacular deal aimed at getting Verizon, T-Mobile and AT&T users to switch. If you're a postpaid subscriber on one of those three aforementioned wireless operators, port your number over to Sprint and bring your phone (more on this later). You will then receive a free year of unlimited talk, text and data. This even covers family plans as well. You have until June 30th to sign up for the deal and the free unlimited service runs up through July 31, 2018.

Not that there aren't a couple of caveats. First of all, the deal is available to new Sprint customers only. There also is a $30 activation fee that needs to be paid up front. However, within two billing cycles it is refunded. You need to agree to Auto Pay and eBilling. Failure to do do will result in a monthly charge of $7.99. And you are still responsible for a monthly SIM card fee, monthly taxes and other fees.

The phone you carry with you to Sprint must be fully owned. That eliminates handsets being paid off monthly. Additionally, the phones eligible for this deal include the Apple iPhone 5c and up (Verizon only), Google Nexus 5 (Verizon and AT&T only), Nexus 5X, Nexus 6, Nexus 6P, Google Pixel, Google Pixel XL, Motorola Moto E4, Moto Z2 Play, Moto G4, Moto G4 Play, Moto G4 Plus, Moto G5 Plus, Moto X Pure Edition, unlocked Samsung Galaxy S7 edge, unlocked Samsung Galaxy S7, unlocked Samsung Galaxy S8, unlocked Samsung Galaxy S8+. Or, you can click on the sourcelink and type your handset's unique IMEI number into the box marked "Check you eligibility" to see if you are able to take advantage of this deal.

After October 1st, you can upgrade to a new Sprint phone by leasing it or purchasing it in monthly installment payments. Upgrade before then, and you'll lose your remaining free months of service.

Speaking of the service plan, unlimited video is streamed up at rates up to 1080p, music is streamed up to 1.5mbps and games can be played at 8mbps. Subscribers also receive 10GB of hotspot data per line. According to Sprint, an individual with one line at Verizon can save $960 over the course of a year. That rises to $1,680 for two lines, $1,920 for three lines and $2,160 for a family of four Verizon subscribers.

If you are paying a SIM card FEE, and other Taxes and BOGUS fees, than it would be incorrect to advertise it as a year of free service. Every company can name their service fee whatever they want - but it still isn't free. FREE means I don't need to pay even a PENNY per month - this is not the case. Sprint is notorious for their fine print and BS advertising. This adds to their crappy network and customer service. I am so happy I left them years ago.

I agree their network is bad, but the total cost is less than a month on most plans, so it's still a good deal

I have a FreedomPop Sprint LTE phone which is totally free free free to own, no monthly taxes, nothing. I bought it for $50 a year back, per month it comes with 700mb of data, 200 texts and 200 minutes. Either way, long story short it's worth the free I don't pay. But if I had to pay a dollar for their stupid network it would be a rip off. I still get large patches of no LTE with only a EVDO 3G connection which is so slow checking email is hard.

This is crazy! I can't imagine Sprint making much money on this promo, I wouldn't be surprised if it gets pulled before the promo end date. Whatever taxes and fees they throw on the bill, excluding the service portion. Whoever is taking advantage of this promotion is lucky! I'm actually considering it :)

They're saving money by not offering it in-store or advertising it at all
