Sprint can’t seem to make up its mind when it comes to two-year contracts, as the Now Carrier keeps going back-and-forth on the idea.
To be fair, two-year contracts have been a longstanding element of carriers in the United States, so giving them up might not be all that easy. (Just don’t pay any attention to the other major carriers who have already dropped them, of course.) Sprint started all this off back in January of this year, ditching two-year contracts but then immediately bringing them back in February due to “customer demand.” And then again in May it was rumored Sprint would be ditching two-year contracts yet again.
Here we are, several months later, and a leaked document published by PhoneArena, and supported by information provided by an assistant store manager at a Sprint retail store publishing on Reddit, indicates that Sprint is doing away with two-year contracts yet again.
The document says that the carrier will stop offering two-year contracts in its retail stores beginning Friday, August 26. However, it’s worth noting a few important caveats: Sprint is going to offer two-year contracts via telesales and through Sprint.com. In addition, two-year contracts will still be offered for tablets and mobile broadband devices, too.
So, only kind of getting rid of two-year contracts.
Are you still attached to a lengthy contract?
