upgrading phone ?

Postby reno » Mon Nov 05, 2018 4:41 pm

my Samsung starting to act up .think it time has come to do a upgrade . it so close to black friday im thinking i'll just wait and see what the big 3 have to offer . I talked to Sprint today and they kind of pissed me off :bang I just walked out of the store . I could do a Samsung Note 9 for Lease at $21 .00 a month but I'd have to get a new cell no. If I want to keep my old number that I have had for years. they say it be $40 plus a month for a 18 month lease on a Note 9. I just walked out of the store at that point. my phone on a month by month contract with them right now . my wife still on lease for 9 month for her Apple SE.
anyone heard of any good deals coming up ?

I'm seeing stories about some hardware jumping 20-30% after Jan 2019 tarrifs kicking in, so now would be a good time.

Check T-Mobile. They're always doing some sweet deals and you can keep your number. Been with them for almost 12 yrs now.

Keep a lookout for black Friday Deals.

Amazon had the S9 for $520 (or 5 payments of 104). https://www.amazon.com/Samsung-Galaxy-S9-Unlocked-Smartphone/dp/B079H6L4V2?ref_=w_bl_hsx_s_wi_web_2530342011&th=1

The Q/A section says this works with both GSM and CMDA so it should work on Sprint. You'll probably want to dig a bit to make sure you don't need to enter any special settings. Since it's Amazon, put your SIM in and see if it works properly. If not, send it back. Amazon is pretty good about most returns. The S9+ is $110 more.
