Is it worth the fees?

by tcr32    Jan 16, 2012, 11:36 PM

I've been thinking long and hard lately about switching to Sprint to get the iPhone 4S. I currently have US Cellular and the service is just fine. I've actually had Sprint in the past, but where I lived at the time the service was terrible. I stopped in at the local Sprint store earlier this week and found out a few things:

-If I switch, my activation fees will be waived because I'm a member of a credit union (Total of $108 saved (3 lines will be activated))

-I will receive a monthly discount of %17 off because of my current employer

-Sprint will 'Buy Back' my current US Cellular equipment (I'll get around $200 based on what the rep calculated)

Saving all of the fees mentioned above and getting a decent credit applied towards new equipment seems convincing enough for me. But, there will be around $450 worth of cancellation fees from US Cellular if I switch. I'd have an awesome phone (I've done quite a bit of reading about the iPhone 4S, it seems quite awesome) but I'd be stuck with the cost of getting rid of USCC...

I'd really appreciate some input from those of you who have have Sprint service or have had it in the past (anyone for that matter) on if you think this switch would be worth it!

Your time and feedback is greatly appreciated Smile
