    Ok, I need some advice.


    So I have a corporate account.

    I am currently have the perimer account status with the upgrade option.

    And there is also another option under the perimer status that says I can do a sweet swap and currently have 150 dollar upgrade on the first line and 50 on the second.

    Could someone please explain how this works.

    What does the sweet swap do?
    The upgrade, what does it apply to, retail or 2 year?


    Sorry, but in Europe we do not do this stuff.
    You just walk in buy the phone, and use it.

    The discounts are taken off the retail (unactivated) prices of the phone. Depending on the model, there may also be additional mail-in and/or instant rebates available. In exchange, you are committing to a new two-year contract.

    After my experiences with my recent purchase, I'd recommend shopping around. With the combination of sale prices and rebates out there, the final price of the phone may vary from one retailer to the next. Also consider your premier status, which does waive the activation fee ($18 for upgrades). However, I think this may only apply if purchasing through a Sprint store (Would appreciate a correction from someone else if I'm wrong on that). A reputable and knowledgeable representative should be able to accurately quote the final price of the phone, based on your eligibility.

    Lastly, consider the plan you are currently using. It may or may not be compatible with your new device. For example, if you are using a basic handset now, but are upgrading to a smartphone (such as an Android device), your existing plan will most likely need to be changed. The retailer you deal with, should be able to tell you for certain.

    Good luck in your search.
