Sprint hangs up on 'One Up' plans after only four months


Sprint has ceased its One Up plans after only four months of operation, according to the carrier’s support page. Initially launched to let customers spread their device payments out over two years, One Up provided for upgrades after the first year.

Sprint One Up ends on January 9, Framily Plans take effect January 10

As to why Sprint has sunset the plan so quickly it is unclear. Presumably, Sprint thinks the new Framily Plan is more worthwhile to consumers. It will take some to determine if folks are interested in sharing their plans with others in the name of a price break. Sprint’s One Up program arrived in late summer as other carriers rolled out their own early trade-in and upgrade plans.
