Sprint Offers Sprint Free Guarantee

Sprint keeps on trying it seems. Supposedly tomorrow (April 1) they will be offering what the beleaguered carrier is calling the Sprint Free Guarantee. Here’s how it will work. If you sign a contract, you can walk away from the deal within 30 days. You’ll have to fork over your handset, but you’ll get a refund on the month of service (including taxes and surcharges) and the phone, as well as the activation fee. There will also not be any restocking fee charged.

This sounds somewhat ripe for abuse if you ask me.

    Great way to try the new WiMAX Android phone, though.

    If they really want to be more competitive, they need to try competition instead of collusion. They need to ditch the 2 year contract in favor of a pro-rated value of the phone. If I quit in 6 months then pro-rate my phone value or let me turn it in. Dump the data download limits. Decrease the price of text data. Charging .20 cents for a minute amount of data! Instead of trying new things that will bring in long term customers, they stick with the other two monopolists and think somehow they are going to stay in the game at all. A 30 day trial and refunding the month is a nice try, but why would I take the expense of ditching my long term contract? It still has 18 months left on it – I’m not going anywhere.
