Sprint's Easy Pay Paves the Way to Device Upgrades
Sprint today announced Easy Pay, a payment system that lets people upgrade to new devices more easily by spreading out the payments over time. Sprint customers who want to upgrade devices more frequently will need to enroll in the Easy Pay program, which is being offered for a limited time. The program requires customers to pay off the balance of their existing handset. They can then choose a new phone, make a down payment on the device followed by 24 equal payments to cover the expense of the phone. Customers have the option of keeping their old device or selling it back to Sprint via its Buyback program. Sprint said Easy Pay can be paired with its new Framily Plans. Sprint Easy Pay replaces the OneUp program, which was cancelled on January 9.
