Sprint shutters One Up early upgrade after just four months

Sprint calls an end to its early upgrade program called One Up after just four months of existence (NYSE:S)

| Mobile Devices, Tablets & Phones News | Posted: Jan 14, 2014 12:48 am

2013 was the year cellular carriers attempted to change their business model and move away from two year contracts, and it appears that at least one of them will not follow suit into 2014. Today Sprint announced that it has canceled its One UP program that let users upgrade early by paying a monthly fee for their phone.

One Up offered customers a new smartphone every 12 months without a two year commitment, and only required customers pay about $20 per month for the phone of their choice on top of their normal service fee. Apparently the service was either not popular, or was costing the company too much money as it was canceled on January 9th with out any prior announcement or notification.
