Sprint $100 switcher credit offer leak

If you're currently on a carrier other than Sprint but have been considering jumping ship to the Now Network, a new leaked document has shown that Hesse and Co. may soon try to entice you to make the switch. According to an image sent to SprintFeed, Sprint is planning to begin sending out $100 service credit offers to select prospective customers in an attempt to convince them to switch to Sprint. The promotion will apparently involve two different tactics.

Some folks will reportedly begin being notified of the deal on their phones starting March 7th. The customer will be able to register their email and phone number on a Sprint website and then must port their number and activate an account with Sprint by April 18th. The user must then stay with Sprint for at least 30 days to receive the $100 credit, which will be given within three billing cycles.

Others will receive notification of the offer via a direct mailer. These pieces of mail will allegedly start going out on March 19th and will contain a special code that must be entered when a person is activating their new Sprint account. Customers that receive a mailer must activate their account by April 15th. It's also worth noting that, in addition to being able to port their number into Sprint, anyone that receives a piece of snail mail from Sprint will also be able to get a new number.

We've seen Sprint introduce a number of promotions in an attempt to keep existing customers happy and entice non-customers to jump to the Now Network. This latest deal seems like a decent one, especially if you were thinking about switching anyway. It's not yet clear exactly how Sprint decides who will be getting a shot at the promo, but if you think this is something you might qualify for (perhaps maybe you're nearing the end of your current contract), it may be worth keeping your eye out for something on your phone or in your mailbox from Sprint.

tanjiro
tanjiro Sprint's 3G is incredibly fast where I live in Indiana. Much faster than Verizon or AT&T's 3G. If only Verizon had LTE here :(

Anonymous 4G speeds in Hawaii outshines my home internet service which I pay $60/month
Reese Woodson
Reese Woodson Sprint sucks a**, their 3G here in L.A. is slow as hell, and their Wimax is a joke. You can barely get signal in doors. I don't care if their data is unlimited. I tried them and ran back to AT&T. No wonder they're bleeding customers.......
Ben Conover
Ben Conover CDMA, bad coverage, and horrible speeds? No thanks, I'll stick with my at&t. Not insanely cheap but much better than the others...
Susie Vierling Jain
Susie Vierling Jain I have Sprint and have had excellent customer service . And love my epic 4g
Mitch Lopez
Mitch Lopez Not on your life. Their coverage is worse than AT&T.
Jeremy Ingram
Jeremy Ingram I can't speak for outside of my city but Sprint needs to work on way better coverage/signal strength, the signal goes in and out way too much for no reason they need to juice up the power on those towers so that signal will be consistent. (I mean everywhere I've gone so far I have had coverage, but signal just constantly goes in and out for no reason and that's just sitting in one place. Another thing is their so called "3g" network with slow edge speeds. I mean come on... I have never on any other carrier had problems watching a youtube video in HQ while on 3g. It is almost completely hopeless on sprint's 3g network. I really like the phone I have with Sprint (Evo 3d) but I am thankful the phone supports wifi. Without wifi I wouldn't be able to enjoy all the things the phone can do (especially downloading/streaming any content; apps, games, movies etc). I can text and make calls just fine on the network for the most part, but if Sprint's going to stay in the game they need to work on network speed, and signal strength. I like the whole truly unlimited data, but what good is that with terribly slow and overly spotty network. I don't get 4g where I'm at. A certain small area of my city does, but that does me no good. Plus from what I've heard the speeds of Sprint's 4g network are that to the 3g speed's of other Networks. With the addition of the same signal inconsistency as Sprint's 3g network. I will stay with my phone and Sprint for now, but I hope they work on making a better network that's more reliable and powerful as their competitors. Of course that's Sprints network for me, and people I've talked to outside of my city/state (Tulsa, Oklahoma) How is it for others?
Joy Balanay
Joy Balanay Nope I've had sprint before and didn't like it! AT&T with my iPhone 4 and I pay $70 a month thanks to my 15% discount from work :)

KoDy Designed ByCrime
KoDy Designed ByCrime Never! Sprint lost me as a customer when they got the iphone
Alisha Michelle Hull
Alisha Michelle Hull I've been with Sprint for several years now...and honestly, the only reason Ive stayed is because they have unlimited data. The customer service is horrible. Currently, I have the HTC EVO and its been horrible!!! I'm on my 6th one because IF they repair it or order you a "new" one, you always get a refurb. Seriously...the customer service is the worst. The people in the stores treat you like you're an idiot.....the people on the phone/corporate side treat you like your a child. It's rediculous. Plus, they have taken away all the perks we used to get by being a loyal customer....if another network had unlimited data, I'd switch in a heartbeat.
Julio Ortiz
Julio Ortiz I just left sprint and went to t mobile better service and better speeds way cheaper !!!

Mary Foley Whalen Ummm. No.
Jeff Hammond
Jeff Hammond There is a little thing called research, people. Do it before you buy anything. Why don't you find out what 4g is or if it's available in your area first. Hell half of you think the iPhone 4/4s is 4g probably. Sprint isn't perfect, but they are the best bang for my buck.
Nick Naylor
Nick Naylor Sprint needs to put out new phone if it wants to keep customers...
David Barnes
David Barnes Why?
Renee White
Renee White I got one for ya..sprint sold us some real expensive 4g phones...but guess what..after we got them we called to tell them we couldn't get the 4g to work...guess what they told us...oh...that's because you don't get 4g coverage in your area...we have had so much trouble from sprint..I could write a book seriously...tell ya what sprint...if you pay me a thousand bucks I will switch to a better company!! The phone I have now..is my 6th phone because they kept sending me ones that didn't work!!

Jason Russ
Jason Russ I have Sprint currently and I have slow data in my area also but alot of things will be changing with sprints network in the next 12-18 months work has already started.
Travis Lindley
Travis Lindley Yay! For a little over $100/month with sprint now, I get a massive 450 minutes a month, 3g speeds the rival the 2g speeds of everyone else, and a customer service department who doesn't know their ass from a hole in the ground. And don't forget as an added bonus, I get to pay an extra $5/month just because I won't sign up for automatic billing on my debit card. If I wasn't a customer already, I'd be the first to sign up! Don't know if I can even wait til my contract's up; thinking more and more about taking the hit and cancelling...
Launi Lewis
Launi Lewis I am in the NO WAY club, had sprint for 8 yrs they kept charginbg me fee's for another state I didn't live in.

Luis Lopez
Luis Lopez Jose Espinal: True, I pay $120, but I'm not complaining. Sprint's data coverage in Chicago is horrible, and the no voice/data at the same time was a deal breaker for me. Team AT&T.

Jorge J-ota Hernandez Gonzalez
Jorge J-ota Hernandez Gonzalez I had Sprint for about 8 years now and no complaints at all. Awesome customer service and service in my area (Philadelphia, PA but I'm in Puerto Rico at the moment) is great always 4 bars or more.
Tom Allen III
Tom Allen III We'd switch if they'd pay for us to break our contracts for 3 lines on a family plan, offer extreme discounts on new devices, seeing as how we can't ours with us, and lastly, if and only if they guaranteed the bill amount for the duration of the contact. PM me Sprint if this is possible! LOL
Luis Lopez
Luis Lopez No, not in this lifetime. Sprint's 3G coverage for the iPhone is horrendous. :(

Cynthia Flores I just wish they gave $ to those loyal to stay with them and bring back the perks ...
Stephanie Wall
Stephanie Wall I had sprint their data have gotten slow and I don't like how now u have to pay 10 each line for data premium crap and if u don't sign up with auto pay u have to pay 4 something for each line so not worth it. I'm happy with my 4g lte with Verizon I don't mind paying more least my phone works all the time. I guess its good for someone who's not a hard data user to each its own :)
Richard Ameen
Richard Ameen People who are bashing sprint. Get a life. Theyre a great company and their network isnt as fast as verizon and not quite as relaible, but their plans are a shit ton cheaper than the big jew network verizon, theyre second most reliable after verizon, and they have unlimited data. All the people wooting for verizon are probably pre teen kids whos parents pay for their service anyways, have them start paying for verizon and theyd think sprint is damn good
Jose Espinal
Jose Espinal btw i have a iphone 4s and i pay $80 but if you go with att and verizon you will end up paying like 120 for something thats only like 700 min and thats it

Matt Peters
Matt Peters I like the pricing, but the Verizon data network puts the Sprint one to shame, at least where I live. With no chance of 4G in the next two years, I'd have to pass. Not to mention, their customer service dept is ridden with incompetence.
Joshua Rodriguez Becker
Joshua Rodriguez Becker No way in hell.

Paul Alexandru

Richard Lindberg
Richard Lindberg I switched to sprint from t mobile and am paying $80 less with more features. And my internet speeds have been comparable to t mobile in my area. If only they would turn on 4G, then it would be great. Besides, I use between 7&8 GB/month myself, and with all the phones, we are over 10GB a month. The no throttle is the lifesaver for me.
