and look for a line like

"Savings until 04/30/19"

hmm don't see "manage plan" or anything like that.. I now see I'm on a $40+ plan.. so I'll try it later.. when they've implemented the fix...

Service is free, but the currency is your time.... Good luck!

For a moment there I thought what account change, it's just a matter of swapping sims. Then realized this is sprint who's still in the sim dark ages.

You can swap phones that you own outright free and clear on their portal (actually usually requires technical chat help to conplete) instantly without an account change (and without messing with sims at all in the case of Sprint phones, which come with a sim that can stay with the phone for the life of the phone, even when sold, etc.). But if you go to a dealer and add a new financed phone that comes with monthly payments, that is an account change (on any carrier) and is incompatible with the free plan. You can do it but it becomes a paid plan unless you do it via phone or on the web only under the limitations and restrictions of this offer.

Simple IMEI swaps are not restricted and are not an account change.

I do blame Sprint though for not walling this plan off from their dealers to prevent them from messing it up by selling on top of it. Of course, that would not be very popular with their dealers......

So much for divorcing the device from the service then. I haven't been a sprint customer since 2013. Don't see myself becoming one any time soon, even with this almost free offer. Cricket gets the job done, even with its own idiosyncrasies (https://www.howardforums.com/showthread.php/1906106-Cricket-breaks-L2TP-IPSEC-vpn).

Chat with them. I had some issues. Not only did they fix the issue, they also gave me some good will credit. MUCH better chat experience than VZW. Sprint will AUTOMATICALLY email you a chat transcript. Unlike VZW, where you caon't even request one
