    Well, it is Sprint, hehe. There should be details though on the Best Buy mobile site. :thumbup::beer:

    I'm definitely doing this. I'm in my last year of school so its time for me to bail on my parent's verizon account they've been nice enough to let me stay on. I just hope law school works for the deal, but I don't see anything that says it wont. Planning on signing up on december 15th when my verizon contract is up and getting the nexus 5.

    I wonder if they would let you BYOD. If you could this would be a lot better. Not paying $800 for a GS4 XD

    Do you know if Sprint is OK in your area though? Also I think the 2nd year is still on contract but tbh I didn't read the whole ad. It's nice if this works out well though. :beer::thumbup:

    Yes, good point. You have to go through Best Buy I think (not sure) so I'm not sure what they require.

    I know, I'm a Sprint customer still... as soon as I can pay the etf I want to get on Straight Talk or Go phone. The data speed here is so bad I can't watch YouTube videos.

    I wish I could get one of those. T-Mo is really good here but the building penetration is bad and for some reason when I'm in Disneyland the data rivals Sprint speeds even though it's insanely fast at California Adventure O_o

    How's ATT there? Do you work at Disneyland? That sounds fun. :beer:

    At home T-Mo is actually better than AT&T but at my school I get no service in one of my classes whereas my friend with AT&T gets 3-4 bars of 4G on his phone.
    I don't work there but I have a year pass so I'm there often

    I've never been there but I imagine it must be fun. :thumbup: Here T-Mobile is probably only a little better than Sprint according to the app I used to compare. ATT is supposed to be the best right where I am (Verizon is 2nd but they haven't enough prepay options). Unfortunately it could be several months until I can afford the Sprint etf but I'm looking forward to it.

    Maybe by then Sprint will have better LTE speeds (Sarcasm)

    Haha, maybe, but I doubt it. They're taking forever to upgrade their network. I still have a line on Boost Mobile too, so I'll know if they do.

    I live in Lincoln, NE and have heard sprint is great here and in Omaha (Nebraska's two cities). Where I worry is when I head to rural western nebraska for various reasons it will be awful and I will likely depend on wifi a lot. For $10 a month though, I think that's a reasonable sacrifice.

    You can opt out of the contract anytime (for no charge) after 3 months until the end of your 1 year.

    My biggest question is what effect on your bill does roaming have? That seems like such a simple question, but something I haven't had to worry about for a long time with verizon.

    That's a good question. Did you find anything on Best Buy about the plan? Maybe Sprint or Best Buy CS would know (but then they might pressure you to sign up right away).

    The plan is the equivalent (and will subsequently switch over to at the end of the first year) the Sprint unlimited, my way plan. I don't know what that means in relation to my question though.

    Me neither. If you look here,



    They don't even include data on that and it's $80/month? Or am I not seeing something...

    Maybe plug in a different zip code and see if it includes data in the table at the bottom on that link.

    With a different zip code I got this page:



    It does say you can add the data on to the Unlimited My Way plan.

    Since you'd have to pay for the device and the second year at maybe $70/month, maybe it would be more cost effective or something to consider Virgin Mobile $45 plan (or the $35 plan if you dont use many minutes) or Straight Talk etc.

    I'm thinking of the taxes and fees Sprint tacks on which can be over $10/month in some states. If the others don't add that on or include it all in the stated price maybe that's better.

    If I'm not mistaken it's only 1 GB of data.
