    I just talked to a Spring chat guy. I can upgrade 2 months before my scheduled upgrade date IF i pay them $50 and then I can only buy the phone in a Sprint store.

    Cant justify paying an extra $50 on top of the $50 extra Sprint is charging for whatever reason. Looks like i'll be waiting until July 1. Hopefully someone has it on sale by then.

    That's interesting because my upgrade date was June 27th and I called today and they changed it so I could upgrade. I also just received an email about the change. I called in also to verify and the upgrade date to be fully eligible is April1.
    I wonder if they'll do that with my upgrade date of August 1st. I'm like a 13 year subscriber so who knows... maybe I should call. Worst they can do is say no I guess.

    It's called the "Upgrade Now" program. They're still offering people to buy out their contract in order to upgrade early. The price depends on how much of your contract is left, and they make you do the upgrade at a corporate Sprint store or through telesales (so Sprint gets all of the profit).

    i always stuck up for sprint but coverage in my area has gone from bad to worse to straight awful. every time i called they told me that they were updating the towers in my area. i got this excuse for over 6 months. i kept missing calls, texts wouldn't go through, and i never could use the internet unless i was at home using my wifi. i had to leave and i'm with verizon now as of yesterday. i'm hoping that the S4 will be released before my 14 days are up so i can get it. but yesterday when i was downloading my apps, i was able to download them without issue on verizon's network...something i couldn't do with sprint unless i was in my house connected to my wifi. its true that they are the only carrier with true unlimited data but what good was it when i couldn't use it? if sprint could have gotten their tower act together i'd still be with them. i really did like sprint. i always had great customer service and they were always helpful but with missed calls i was afraid that my son's school would call and they couldn't get ahold of me. i spoke to a verizon rep and he said that the S4 would be available for pre-order the end of this month. not saying its true as reps lie...just stating what i heard. hope its true

    I tried calling Sprint Customer Service today. My upgrade date is July 01 and I used to be the premier member that got the upgrade every 12 months. The lady was not very helpful and told me that if I want to upgrade the 2 months early it would cost me $175 additional. Cancelling my contract would be $140.

    So if I was to stay with sprint it would cost me $175 + $250 (and fees) totaling $425. To leave sprint I would pay $140 plus new phone $200 totaling $340. We have 4 lines with Sprint and been with them over 10 years. I was shocked they would not even move me up 2 months when I said I am going to leave.

    Whoever got them to change their date was much luckier than I was!

    What are the odds of getting Sprint to wave the upgrade/activation fee?

    Ugh Ever since i updated my Epic 4G Touch to JB, the battery has crapped out on me. Tried a factory reset and no dice. Got fed up and went into the Sprint store today. Officially 2 months away from my upgrade date. Was expecting them to charge me $50 to upgrade. I didn't want to pay the extra, but i am frustrated with my old phone and my bday is Saturday and I am going on vacation next week, so I wanted the new phone.

    Yeah they still want $100 to upgrade 2 months early. Ridiculous.
