Re: Sprint version out on Oct 4, officially
If you have an older plan with a discount, check your math on things. For the Note 3 (assuming $800 MSRP just like AT&T and Verizon if you're going through Best Buy), with an Everything Data 450 minutes and my 25% discount (which is applied to the 70 dollar plan and not the 10 dollar premium data fee), my bill currently is around $70 after taxes.

Note 3 ($349.99)
Trade in at best buy with trade in plus ($225.00)
Total = ~$1025.00 after 12 months, ~$1775.00 after 24 months.
Plan ($47.50 monthly)
Note 3 (~$33.50 monthly)
Total = ~$972.00 after 12 months, ~$1944.00 after 24 months.
This is also assuming they keep the $15 discount for the life of your stay with Sprint. For me, I'd rather not chance that and pay relatively the same with my current plan. I use an average of 30 minutes a month out of my 450, so I don't need unlimited minutes.
This was done after calling Sprint Customer Service and speaking with a friendly, helpful woman. I asked if my discount (25%) applied to the discount one up unlimited plan, if my discount was also applied onto the phone cost per month, and my ETF if I upgraded the first week of October.
My answers were that my discount is applied to the data portion of the plan ($30 instead of $70) and then the $15 is deducted for the combination of new my way unlimited + one up, any employee discount or corporate discount you have doesn't apply to the phone monthly cost, and my ETF at month 16 is $150. She checked with some people just to make sure, so I'm confident with the answers I received and plan on sticking with my current plan option and not going to the One Up plan.
