Sprint Kills One Up Program in Favor of Framily Plans After Just Four Months

That didn’t last long. Sprint, the last major carrier to imitate respond to T-Mobile’s Jump! program with an upgrade plan of its own, One Up, decided to end it January 9. The company says One Up was scrapped in favor of the recently introduced Framily Plans.

One Up allowed customers to pay off a smartphone over a 24 month period, which is an aspect that the Framily Plans incorporate. However, the program also included an early, 12-month upgrade option which has been eliminated from the network’s new offerings. Worse still, existing One Up enrollees don’t get to upgrade annually anymore without ponying up for a down payment.

As a consolation for remaining One Up customers, the $15 discount on unlimited service barring a device upgrade or switch in plans.

    Sprint have just upgraded the “One Up” plan for “Framily” for an additional payment of $20…..How ever, T-Mobile offer more savings on service plan which matter a lot in comparison to device cost…. http://www.telecomvibe.com

    The annual upgrade is still an option on the new plan. As far as I know, you can get unlimited everything for $45/month with 7 lines on the Framily plan. No contract and annual upgrades.

    It’s funny how all the carriers scramble around trying to keep up with the Jones’s, Tmo are innovators and force the other carriers to follow suit or risk losing customers by the boat load. HAHAHAHAH….I expect the next announcement from Sprint to be that they’ve canceled all ETF in order to stop the bleeding from TMo’s Well pay your ETF’s pledge.

    Sprint does seem like a waste of spectrum.

    LOL at sprint. It’s like they’re drunk or something.

  • KingofPing

    In reality, they canceled it before anyone even got a chance to use it, so it really doesn’t matter how long it’s been.

    Thanks for the joke, Sprint. Keep us laughin’.

        I’m fairly sure we know this. It’s just a really horrible name for friends and family.

      I thought it was a racist joke since a Japanese company owns Sprint.
