Ever since T-Mobile got rid of two-year contracts other carriers have been slowly moving over to the same installment plan model. However so far only two carriers have fully eliminated contracts, T-Mobile, and shockingly, Verizon. AT&T and Sprint have still been offering contracts, but promoting their installment plans to customers. However according to information from Front Page Tech, it looks like Sprint is the next to end two-year contracts.
Front Page Tech recently received a tip from a national retailer who claimed that they had attempted to sign a customer up for a 2-year contract on Sprint but they were declined to do so. Shortly after, they contacted Sprint directly who told them that “for now” they will be able to sign up for a 2-year contract.
Another Sprint representative stated that they did not have permission to sign up a customer for a two-year contract and that Sprint is in fact moving away from the contract model since “all the other carriers are doing it”.
It will be interesting to see how this develops as if it is true and Sprint is indeed eliminating 2-year contracts, that would leave only one major US carrier offering that option. What are your thoughts on the matter? Are you glad carriers are moving away from contracts or would you prefer to see them stay? Let us know in the comments below!
