On November 2, Sprint will finally implement the year-long-delayed promise of prorating Early Termination Fees (ETF). This will only benefit customers that sign up on or after November 2. The proration will begin five months after the customer activates service (as such, customers that cancel after the first month, but before month five… will pay the full ETF). The ETF will drop $10 per month, until it reaches $50. The ETF will then fall to zero after the full two-year commitment isÂ fulfilled.
Contrary to other published reports, Sprint will not significantly drop the price of family plans. Rumored plan changes called for Sprint’s 1,500 minute Talk/Message/Data plan tier to fall to $70/month, with similar price changes at the 3,000 minute tier. However, this was actually a misprint in Best Buy’s upcoming ad, which has since been corrected. Sprint’s new plan tiers will be $129/month and $169/month, respectively.
