[US] BYOD Sprint Mobile Unlimited Call Text and Data 1 year FREE

Deal Link:
Price:
FREE
For those close to the border, you get 1 year free of Sprint Mobile talk,text and data unlimited for 1 year 3/31/2020 ( after that $60/month), I'd cancel :lol:

All you gotta do is buy a sim card online and ship it to one of your amerifriends or address across the border and put it on one of your approved phones.
You could just use it while you travel there or use it in Canada but mind you the phone you call out of will be american which means that if someone calls that phone they'll be charged US rates.

IIRC their phones is the same frequency as of Telus/Koodo, if it works with them then Sprint works with it.

Global Roaming in more than 200 worldwide destinations


Savings until 3/31/2020; then $60/mo. for line 1, $40/mo for line 2 and $20/mo/line for lines 3-5. Reqs. AutoPay (discount applied w/in 2 invoices), new account, bring your own eligible device & Sprint SIM card. Savings claim compared to AT&T Unlimited &More and Verizon Go Unlimited rate plans for 1 line; features differ. Video streams up to 480p, music up to 500 Kbps, gaming up to 2 Mbps. Data deprioritization during congestion. Other monthly charges apply.**

THINGS YOU NEED
  1. You'll need a free Google Voice phone number to port in https://support.google.com/voice/answer ... ktop&hl=en $3 to port out
  2. an IMEI that's eligible for the porting and a phone number from USA
  3. An USA address for shipping (any address will do)
  4. Credit Check (this one is lengthy, you'll need to do a bit of research on SD)

It seems like you need an existing US number to qualify.

Mint Mobile subscribers are eligible for this.

Recommend users read the SD thread and wiki for this deal. I won't link it as that's probably not allowed.

I used T-Mobile $10 a month 2GB data plan in Canada and US.
Can’t you just go to Walmart or target get SIM card and activate online?

Thanks

I only get the offer until September 30th of this year.

What steps did you take to get a validity for next year?

Edit: Also requires you to verify your credit (aka asks for your SSN) as you go through the sign up process? Op, did you find another way to get this deal?

This is usually the problem with postpaid US cell deals. They need to pass a us credit check and have a us credit card.

Also, roaming limits for users in Canada ....

if off-network roaming usage in a mo. exceeds: (1) 800 min. or a majority of min.; or (2) 100MB or a majority of KB. Prohibited network use rules apply—see sprint.com/termsandconditions.

Pay as you go cell plans usually don’t require a valid us credit check (SSN) or US credit card, but post paid usually does

Downvoted because of this. It would’ve been nice if the OP adds this requirement to the description.

Some costs I observed reading fine texts

$3+$10 shipping for SIM
$30 activation fee then you get it credited within 2 bills = It sounds like you need to pay first then will have $30 credit sitting on account
$2.50admin fee + 0.40 regulatory fee = $2.90/mo = $34.80 for 1 year

$13 + $30 + $34.80 = $77.80USD = just over $105 CAD to get started. If you only have one or two trips planned in next year or so I don't think it's worth doing it. I usually just buy local SIM card to get full speed data and those are usually like $15 for enough data for my stays. Using it at home would be too painful as it's only 2G speed, not to mention you will be paranoid because you can get cut off due to off network usage.

No. Not even close.

Sprint is the oddest of networks in the US. You'd think Verizon would win that race, but nope.

Like Verizon, they rely on CDMA (IS-95/CDMA2000) for 2G/3G.

Unlike Verizon, the bands they've deployed LTE on are completely screwy:

https://www.frequencycheck.com/carriers ... ted-states

https://www.phonescoop.com/glossary/term.php?gid=564


B25 (1900 +) LTE (a superset of B2, but the phone MUST support B25 to function at all with Sprint)
B26 (850 +) LTE (a superset of B5)
B41 (TD 2500) LTE (A band only used by Sprint)

On top of all that, you need a phone Sprint will PERMIT onto their network. Basically that means you need to purchase a Sprint phone.

The YMMV on this is very restrictive IMHO.

Isn’t the IMEI eligible for the promo the key here? They do not accept my new KOODO iphone X... Should it necessarily come from AT&T or Verison?
Anyone successful getting the phones bought from Canadian companies eligible for this promo?

Maybe not bad to add something like “restrictions apply” to the title?
