Sprint today announced the launch of two new smartphone upgrade programs, Sprint Flex and Sprint Deals. Sprint Flex, as the name suggests, is designed to give users more options for upgrading their phones, including on an annual basis.

With Sprint Flex, customers can choose an iPhone for a low monthly price and begin making payments. Through Sprint's existing iPhone Forever and Galaxy Forever programs, customers can then opt to upgrade on an annual basis, trading in their devices each year.

After 18 months, though, customers can choose to return their devices for a new one, own the device by making a single payment, or own the device by making six additional monthly payments. Sprint has a chart outlining the program:

Sprint Deals, the other new program Sprint is introducing, will let customers purchase a smartphone without a credit check. Sprint Deals is limited to older devices like the iPhone 6s, but offers $25 to $30 down and payments of $5 to $10 a month.

Customers who apply for and receive credit with Sprint, can take advantage of Sprint Flex on a postpaid plan:

- For entry-level devices, customers pay $5 per month with $25 down.
- For higher-end devices, customers pay $10 per month with $30 down.

Customers who prefer to bypass a credit check with Sprint, can get an instant discount on the same "value menu" of smartphones, on a Sprint Forward prepaid plan:

- For entry-level devices, customers get 50 percent off the suggested retail price.
- For higher-end devices, customers pay 25 percent off the suggested retail price.

Sprint is also currently running a free service promotion that may make it an attractive choice for customers looking for an affordable smartphone. For customers switching from Verizon, AT&T, T-Mobile, or another postpaid carrier and bringing their own device, Sprint is offering one year of free unlimited talk, text, and 4G LTE data.

The fact that they had to design a freaking flow chart highlights the problem that Sprint still doesn't get it.

Lmao THANK YOU.

What's the problem with these carriers making everything so complicated and just rehashing their offerings?
That's part of the reason I switched to T-Mobile. The only thing complicated with T-Mobile is that sometimes you have trouble navigating how you can stack the myriad of discounts. For me, that's a great problem to have and it got sorted within the first two months of service last spring. I'm currently paying $70/mo for three iPhone lines and an iPad data plan with no tax. I got the third line free promo, then stacked the Verizon transfer discount, then get $10/off per month for two of the qualifying lines when they're under 2GB, which is most of the time as one of the lines is my grandparents. But if I use the unlimited data, I only pay $10 more, which I rarely do because you get free video streaming at 720p and free music streaming. It's the most incredible deal out there if you can get service, which keeps improving and is way better than Sprint.

Is Sprint still trying to sucker in new subscribers to their terrible network?

Also, if a company needs to utilize a chart to explain how the program works, then that is a clear sign to avoid it all costs.

That's an awesome plan you got.

T-Mobile offers more value especially for those with 1-2 lines. The real battle for the money starts at 4 lines. T-Mobile per line savings over att/Verizon decrease dramatically with more lines. Verizon 6 lines/$220 unlimited (capped at 22 gb). Att $225/6 lines

T-Mobile "one" plan with unlimited data capped at 28gb high speed for 4 lines is $160 (includes taxes). Vs att ($185 excludes taxes) Verizon 4/$180 (excludes taxes).

The less lines you have. The more atttradtive T-Mobile looks
