Sprint announced Friday an early-upgrade program for people who want to get new mobile phones earlier than two years, joining a bandwagon of similar plans started by T-Mobile, AT&T and Verizon.
The "Sprint One Up" plan starts at $65 per month for unlimited talk, text and data, and then the customer must pay an additional monthly fee for up to 24 months. After the first 12 months, the user can get a new phone by handing in their old phone and starting the payment plans all over again. The program begins Friday.
"Unlike other carriers, Sprint guarantees the unlimited talk, text and data for life. No other plan can compare," Sprint CEO Dan Hesse said in a statement.
