Sprint shutters One Up early-upgrade plan four months after launch

Sprint customers redirected from One Up to Framily plans

Sprint has withdrawn its One Up early upgrade plan in the United States, less than four months after it launched. The plan, which competed against similar offerings from T-Mobile, Verizon, and AT&T, was retired on the 9th of January, allowed customers to pay for a device over 24 monthly installments, with the option of allowing devices to be traded in 12 months into the contract and replaced by a new device.

The notice for the plan retirement appeared online in the carrier's support pages, reports The Verge, with customers being directed towards the carrier's "Framily" plans instead, despite the new plan not having any early-upgrade components at all. It is not clear if Sprint will be introducing an early upgrade mechanism to Framily, a plan that touts reduced fees based on groups sharing plans.

Existing One Up customers will be able to continue using the service under the plan, though if they migrate to Framily, they will lose their $15 monthly service discount.
