    So, I am going to finally leave sprint as they won't allow me to stay on the SERO plan and do a phone upgrade.

    I really didn't use the phone much at all, never using calling or texting and only using data about 500mb-1gb a month AT MOST, some months nothing. The note 4 I have been using spends about 95% of it's time on some form of WIFI so a cellular contract really isn't that necessary. But I'd still like to have something, so

    what is the best option?

    Can one buy a t-mobile device, unlocked and put it on the walmart 30$ a month plan?

    Will ANY of the Galaxy note 7 devices from various carriers - at full retail of course - can any of them be made to attach to a ring or republic or MVNO carrier?

    I have AT&T but not really a regular account - no shared data, etc.. but I could do that. Assuming it's a shared plan it seems one should be able to attach a new device for about 25$ a month?

    Is there some other option? I'd really like to upgrade to this device, but don't need 600-720$ a year in wireless carrier fees.

    thoughts?

    Sounds like you want to buy it outright and get cheap service. If that's the case, do that and then get on the tmobile $30 prepaid plan with 100 min and unlimited data (5gb high speed) and text.

    Just to clarify, are you asking if you can get an unlocked phone but still sign up for the $30 per month payment plan? If so I don't think they will unlock the phone until it is paid off or you can maybe get the phone unlocked via a third party. I'm not sure about the last part.
