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.

sprintdeal
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?

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)

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.

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.

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??
