Originally founded in 1899, Sprint was one of the first telecommunications companies, and it has gone through many changes during its history. The most recent change was a merger with T-Mobile that was completed April 1, 2020 and this change has two ending results. First, any current customers are redirected to T-Mobile's website when they try to visit Sprint's website. Secondly, potential new customers wanting to sign up to Sprint now must do so with the new company. This guide will show you what T-Mobile has to offer and how to sign up.
First, T-Mobile is considered America's biggest and fastest 5G network and has dedicated itself to employees and customers. Also, there are no hidden fees; the price you pay includes them and any taxes. The website states that this company is dedicated to its communities through disaster relief and renewable energy. It also is dedicated to improving its products and services.
T-Mobile has its share of recognition. You will find nothing but positive words said about this company by the likes of J.D. Power, Newsweek, Glassdoor, Forbes, Fortune and the Human Rights Campaign and that's just to start. J.D. Power has recognized T-Mobile 17 times as the number one provider of wireless full-service, customer-care in the United States.
A few of the available plans are directed at senior citizens, first responders, current military and veterans. More on the plans will be stated below.
The Essentials plan includes 50 GB of premium data, unlimited talk and text and a mobile hotspot for $60 a month. The next plan is the Magenta for $70 a month and you get 100 GB of premium data, unlimited data at 5G and 4G LTE, and unlimited talk and text. You also get free basic Netflix with at least two lines of service. There are multi-line discounts when you enroll in autopay which can save you close to 50% per line. The best part is if you're aged 55 or over, a first responder, or former or active duty military, there's a 50% discount on T-Mobile's most popular plans. Feel free to call T-Mobile's award-winning customer service here if you have any questions.
Like many other wireless communication companies, you have many ways to switch. You can bring your own compatible device, browse the latest Samsung and iPhones or look for the biggest deals the website offers. There's financing for the latest devices for those who qualify and checking if you do won't hurt your credit score. You can even shop at the nearest store if you're more into doing so.
When you are ready to switch, visit T-Mobile's website and click on the Phones and Devices tab, then click on the option that's best for you: cellphones, 5G phones or bring your own. If you buy a new phone you can check to see if you can transfer your number or opt in for a new number. The website will even give you an option to schedule an appointment with the closest store in case you want to receive your purchase sooner. T-Mobile makes it easier, pick your phone then pick a plan to match.
