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.
