If you’re paying big bucks to AT&T or Verizon for your cellphone service, there’s an opportunity coming up for you to cut that bill in half.
Sprint rolls out the Cut Your Bill in Half event
Sprint has an amazing offer right now. Beginning Dec. 5, Sprint is rolling out the Cut Your Bill in Half event. They’ll provide unlimited talk and text -and- match your data for half the cost you’re currently paying AT&T or Verizon.
They’ll also waive your activation fee (a value of $36 for each line) and will pay your early termination fee up to $350 per line.
Here’s how to take advantage of the offer:
1. Visit Sprint.com/HalfPrice to upload a copy of your current bill. (Note: Link will not be active until Dec. 5.)
2. Bring a copy of your latest bill and all of the phones on your Verizon or AT&T account to turn in to your Sprint store.
3. A Sprint representative will select the service plan that most closely matches the data allowance in your current monthly rate plan.
4. Get your new phone either by leasing, doing installment billing, or paying full retail price for the device.
This is not an introductory offer; this is for as long as you stay as a customer of Sprint.
Sprint has historically had the worst network of the Big 4, though they are improving. They’ve also historically had the worst customer servce, though that’s changing too. But it’s like a big ship turning; it will take some time for them to get things right.

Check out this cheapo option from Freedom Pop
Freedom Pop offers a freemium service. You buy any of a variety of Androids with prices all over the place (starting at around $99) and get 200 minutes, 500 texts, and 1/2 Gigabyte of data per month for free. There are a variety of paid options including unlimited talk and text for $10.99 per month, and $20 a month for unlimited talk and text with 1 GB of high-speed data.
That’s the good news about Freedom Pop. The bad news is the call quality on Freedom Pop is severly lacking. While the coverage seems fine, the call quality is just mediocre at best. It’s a definite work in progress. But the data works very well, just as promised.
Right now, Freedom Pop is offering a pre-owned Samsung Galazy S3 for $139. This is a limited time offer, so act fast if you’re interested.
