But i do know Sprint would not give you a phone without charging you full price even with a contract extension before your upgrade date. And keep in mind my father is a cheap sob so he does not pay for insurance either.
Btw Sprint is not cheaper when you add in recovery fees on top of the taxes that other carriers don't charge. As for LTE it's meaningless to most people as the only thing that counts is how good the coverage is and if you can use your phone when you need it. And for those who care that much about the difference in price they should go prepaid for only $50/month with Boost which is also unlimited for half the price.
I'm glad to hear that your father is getting free phones off the backs of paying customers like my relatives. Please tell me more about this so I can contact T-mobile let them know how unfair it is to be apparently rewarding some customers who consistently break phones every 6-8 months while other customers get the there's nothing what so ever that can be done to get into a new phone conversation. And by recovery fees, I assume you mean lost/stolen fees they are across all carriers that use Asurion. I paid 175$ just a few months ago when my sister lost her iphone to Verizon.
BTW, we get it, you don't like Sprint. I don't like T-mobile/AT&T yet you don't find me stirring up trouble in their respective forums on Phandroid.
