    Wow. For someone in an area that has good Sprint coverage, that's hard to beat.

    Why would Sprint offices be eligible, they are trying to get you away from Verizon.

    It's still a limitation for those that may have a sprint phone they would leave verizon

    I'm not signing up but sprint always has crap limitations. Overall not a bad deal but they need to open up the doors to gain as many customers as they can

    Free Sprint Service for 1 year

    And the page is now a 404. I'd carry a sprint phone around just to monitor the coverage.

    I don't think they are blocking Sprint devices per-say but could be for activation. The terms say if you break your phone you need to swap for a Sprint compatible device and or pay full retail for one in the store.

    I know my Verizon phone previously on Boost will not pass FED for some reason, says balance owed which is obviously impossible.
    My boost iphone 6's have a bad FED too.

    I have a G4+ I want to try but now the site is down.

    I wonder if you simply bring in "valid" devices then swap to Sprint devices... eh who knows.

    To be fair this is the first freaking time in history I can ever remember sprint doing BYOD and letting you do a whole new account online without buying a device. Almost as history making as free service.

    I remember when Sprint would make you do a 2 year contract just to activate an old phone!

    I might discuss with my wife if she'd like to give Sprint another try with her Nexus 5x.

    I'm surprised they shut this down so quickly.

    If you think about it, giving free service for a year with a BYOD costs them a hell of a lot less than paying off iPhones and buying out contracts for $350-800. Even at $60 a month, we all know the real cost of that service is way less so this was a really smart promotion. On the low end, if the actual service costs them $30-40/mo, they'd be out $360-480 on the year, not a bad deal vs. paying off an $800 phone.

    I would have probably moved a line over from T-Mobile or Verizon and may have even kept it there if Sprint treated me right.

    Anyone who knows my post history around here knows that I dislike Sprint, but long-term I really want them to succeed. Even as someone who generally supports Mergers & Acquisitions, I don't want to see only 3 carriers. This would have bought (at least in my opinion) some goodwill with consumers, so of course it was axed as soon as possible!

    Sprint's burned a lot of people, that's why they they're in this position, most of my problems were not even coverage related, they couldn't even fix roaming on my account for 2 years! This was awhile ago, switching to Verizon was like going from a Yugo to a Lexus. They're at the point to where they're giving away service, I only want Sprint around for the competition, though it looks like Sprint won't be independent by this time next year.

    I know so many people who once used Sprint but now refuse to even consider them that a promotion like this would have bought a lot of goodwill with people. I know it's anecdotal evidence, but most people I know that used to have Sprint didn't leave because of coverage either.

    I swore I'd never consider them again, and even I would come back and try them out if they allowed me to bring my own device and gave me a year of free service! Although like many of the other horror stories, I'm sure my purchased-outright Verizon iPhone 7 would somehow fail the FED check, or they would screw up the billing and I'd be paying full price for 6 months or something and just get soured even worse...

    Again, I really want Sprint to compete, but no matter what they do they seem to get it all wrong. They should allow anyone with a compatible device (Sprint or otherwise) to port-in a number for a free year of service just to get their numbers up!

    Back in 2006-2007 Sprint actually fired thousands of customers, I was one of them.
