Sprint officially announces One Up upgrade program

Sprint One Up

Hot on the heels of upgrade programs announced by T-Mobile, AT&T and Verizon, Sprint has launched a similar service of its own called One Up. The plan was first revealed this past Monday but is being officially announced now. This new plan goes live today all over the U.S. (barring Washington D.C. and Florida). The One Up plan is eligible for all upgrading customers on Sprint. Costing $65 a month, the plan offers unlimited minutes, texts and data. Users will also have to pay 24 equal monthly installments of the total cost of the smartphone, but will be able to switch to a new device after 12 months. Sprint will offer this plan under zero down payment for a limited period.

With devices like the LG G2 and the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 forthcoming on the carrier, the One Up plan could certainly prove to be very exciting for existing Sprint customers. Customers usually have to stick to one carrier for a period of two years or pay a hefty fee to upgrade early.

Sprint CEO Dan Hesse said – “The new program gives Sprint customers the ability to upgrade every 12 months and unlimited talk, text and high speed data for just $65. And, unlike other carriers, Sprint guarantees the unlimited talk, text and data for life. No other plan can compare“.
