    I've been with ATT for many years now and have had an iPhone for over 2 years as well. Does Sprint (or can they) offer incentives to help convince you to switch to their service? This could be discounted rates, or free phone case/screen protector, discount on first phone, etc?

    Is this something I should even explore?

    Thanks

    Uhh... you get to break free from ultra expensive AT&T and that control freak Steve Jobs...

    Plus you get a sweet android device that is quickly becoming the #1 platform for mobile devices.

    Sounds like a damn good deal to me, you will save enough money over a year on Sprint's plan to where you shouldnt even need to think about extra incentives....

    I've been with Sprint for a while now. Was previously with Verizon and AT&T and I always felt like I was getting nickled and dimed to death with them. With Sprint it is a reasonable rate with no surprises.

    I would give the edge to Verizon's coverage, but I don't need that good of coverage for all their $$$. Sprint has always served me well. YMMV with your particular area.

    Sprint's 30-day money back guarantee is what helped me to decide to give it a shot. After having ATT for 2 years, and dealing with crap service in my home area I was damned to get stuck in another dead zone.

    I tried and went to a verizon store, and grilled CS on how much it would be for me to try the service and the phone. within 3 days, return policy was $35 restocking fee. within 30days it was $35 restocking fee and $35 activation fee. So your out $70 just for trying the service.

    Sprint's was pretty clear, absolutely no fee's attached if within 30days your not satisfied.

    As far as comparison in prices check out this inforgraphic from billshrink. Pretty clear cut in terms of what your getting for your money.

    Not raising your bill by 50 bucks after just an hour of HQ YouTube consumption (a friend of mine proved this to be true btw), although he did opt for the lowest smartphone plan, silly rabbit.

    I think you would be wasting your breath. Sprint has 4G and the cheaper unlimited plan. It's hard to get them to offer you something when they know you'll be saving money.

    They already give you offers to several 500+ dollar retail phones for 200 bucks with a 2 year contract, and you want them to give you more? I don't understand.

    For me, going from AT+T to Sprint has plenty of perks -- for one, my signal won't suck ass where I am. For two, my signal won't suck ass when I travel to New York or Atlanta, two places that AT+T has been horrible for many people in.

    Unlimited no extra cost data, unlimited no extra cost texting with their simply everything plans add 10 bucks if you want a 4G phone but it's still saving you LOADS of money if you like to go online alot oR text, and it's free.

    Of all the carriers to compare, AT&T? Seriously, they're like the worst, I could see the comparison vs Verizon for their rock solid network (which we roam on btw) but AT&T? lol

    Simple quesiton.. simple answer: Sprint has a better network, superior plans, for a lot less money.

    Compare Sprints Everything Data 450 plan to a comprable plan on ATT.. you're looking at a 30 to 40 dollar difference... maybe more.

    Sounds like a no brainer to go to Sprint.
