Sprint Drops 'Galaxy Forever' Leasing Program

Sprint has discontinued its Galaxy Forever lease program after just four months. Similar to its iPhone Forever program, the Galaxy Forever program allowed customers to lease a Galaxy S smartphone, make 12 payments, and then trade in the device for a new Galaxy S handset. The Galaxy Forever program applied to the Galaxy S7 and S7 edge and was pitched as a simpler way to upgrade to new equipment each year. Sprint customers can still lease the S7 and S7 edge, but won't be able to enjoy the annual no-cost upgrade. The Galaxy Forever program is no longer available from Sprint's web site, and Sprint stores confirmed to Fierce Wireless than the program has in fact been cancelled. Sprint did not provide a reason for the change. The iPhone Forever program is still available.

So sprint lied?

So I take this to mean the people who bought the S7 with the idea they would be able to upgrade to the new phone in 12 months are SOL?
Then again, this is Sprint, they're already SOL. This is just another cruise down defecation creek.
No. People who have the Galaxy Forever program can still upgrade to the new phone at their 12 month point. Any Sprint customer leasing or purchasing any new phone can now add on the ability to upgrade after 12 months for $5 extra per month.
