Sprint to pay switcher ETF promo

T-Mobile's Uncarrier moves have resulted in a lot of changes and special offers at other carriers, and it looks like we could see that situation play out again tomorrow.

An internal Sprint document has been posted to the S4GRU forums that shows that starting on April 4, the big yellow carrier will kick of a new promotion that'll see it pay early termination fees for switchers. The offer requires that customers switch from a postpaid operator and then sign up for one of Sprint's new Framily plans. After registering on Sprint's website, uploading a final bill and then sticking with Sprint for 45 days, Sprint will give them a Visa Prepaid Card up to $350 to cover the cost of their ETF.

In addition to this switcher offer, Sprint says that customers can receive up to $300 in service credit by trading in an old device.

Sprint's offer may not be the most original that we've ever seen, but it seems like a pretty sweet deal for anyone that's been thinking about jumping ship to a new carrier. Of course, the Sprint promo is only scheduled to last a month while T-Mobile's offer has been going on for a few months now, but at least we got a bit of a heads-up on Sprint's offer so that you can start deciding whether or not the Now Network would make a a nice new home for you.
