Sprint Offering $100 Off iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c for New Customers

Sprint has announced (via 9to5Mac) that it will be offering $100 off on both the iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c to new customers who port their number to the carrier, dropping the price of the 16GB iPhone 5c to $0 and the price of the 16GB iPhone 5s to $99 with a two-year contract.

The move comes shortly after news leaked of Sprint's upcoming "One Up" frequent device upgrade program, which will allow customers to upgrade their phones and tablets at regular intervals. It also comes four days after T-Mobile announced that it will be offering the iPhone 5c for $0 down and iPhone 5s for $99 down, although Sprint's prices only apply to new customers while T-Mobile's pricing applies to current and new customers.

With the promotion, which ends on October 10, 2013, the iPhone 5c will cost $0 for the 16GB model and $99 for the 32GB model while the iPhone 5s will cost $99 for the 16GB model, $199 for the 32GB model and $299 for the 64GB model. The iPhone 4s will still be $0.

The iPhone 5c can be pre-ordered immediately from Sprint's website, and the iPhone 5s will be available for order beginning on Friday, September 20.

I hate that carriers don't give discounts and freebies to people that are loyal... :(

New customers? Why don't they do this for the customers who've put up with them for years?

Lol Sprint reminds me of a company I used to work for. ONLY cares about new customers and could give a rats behind about existing customers.

This isn't new, this is how sprint convinced me over to them a few months ago. I quickly jumped ship within 14 days since I couldn't do a damn thing with my iPhone 5 on their LTE network. Sure I could text from anywhere, but I'd be damned if I got data anywhere on the network that didn't blow.


Boston is now a fully launched LTE network, you were experiencing teething pains of getting the towers fine tuned most likely. Nearly every site in Boston is an LTE site now. You really should heave waited it out.

PS: EVERY current Sprint cellular site is getting LTE - even the super rural ones that only broadcast 1x currently. Around Mid-2014 Sprint is going to have one hell of a network, especially when 800Mhz LTE gets flipped on in all of the markets. (Super range)

Those 3g speeds are very good. It is impossible to have double of 1.5 mbps (3) in real world scenarios since that is pretty much the theoretical max. Also your situation mirrors mine. I had been considering jumping to tmobile but i know the sprint network will be much better in the long run, and with the softbank acquisition they should give even ATT and VZW a run for their money


Yes, CDMA will only do 3mbps but I was also talking about the other 2 GSM carriers (att&tmobile) which will do double our 3G speeds on 3G. I too was considering the jump to tmobile in October when my Sprint contract is up but knowing they'll get their LTE coverage in all places they have 3G in 2014 I might just stick around. I agree the SoftBank acquisition will only help them get better. Not to mention them finally buying Clearwire and that whole mess and killing off Nextel and refarming their spectrum for their LTE.

Wow, big discounts right at launch? That makes the iPhone and Apple look bad. My oh my, times have changed. But hey, at least they still have their Apple faithful who'll line up in advance (showing they have nothing better to do in life) for a phone they could very easily order online , trying their best to build the hype that's just no longer there.

I'm over the whole "smartphone" thing. Yes, I have an iPhone 5. Yes I'll probably upgrade next year to the 6 or whatever. No, I don't get excited like half the people here about it.

Why not? Because who cares? It's a phone/computer in your pocket. It's not some "new" thing anymore.

On a semi-related note... can't humanity just agree that "Television" as a fad is DONE and move on with things that will actually help people?

Might be serious, might be joking. You decide.

Who's with me?


PS... I don't think it makes Apple look bad per se. Maybe the phone companies are just realizing that no one wants to pay ridiculous prices for cell phone plans and the related equipment....

How does this make Apple look bad?? It is Sprint the one who's doing the promotion, not Apple. Apple still gets paid full price for every one of those iPhone sold with this promotion.

Also why do people mind what other people do with their time and money?? If someone wants to camp out outside a store for a product then so be it. They're not interfering with your life, so why judge them??
