    So this is something new with sprint as far as leasing phones? I have never had to pay additional for my phone on top of my monthly bill. Any time I have upgrades I have paid $100-$200 for the phone up front and the phone is mine no leasing no nothing.   (1 Answer)

      Answer

      Yes , they have been doing this for a couple years now . You don't have a contract with the service ,but your lease is a 24 month contract if you change you have to pay off the lease . Supposedly the service is cheaper , but you pay for the phone as you go. It all evens out to the same , you really were paying for the phone before . Just gimmicks to make you think it's a better deal. I think if you bought the phone and just made payments monthly you come out ahead , just look for when they have deals at other stores like BB, THEN YOU OWN THE PHONE . Leasing is a rip. And the new every time a new model comes out isn't all it's cracked up to be . Beacause the monthly lease amount goes way up for the new phone, Thats my take on it all

      What is the difference between the Note 5 and the S8+?   (1 Answer)

        Answer

        The biggest differences that I've looked into are the cameras. Note 5 is 16mp rear and 6 mp front. The s8+ is 12mp rear and 8 mp front. Also, the Note 5 doesn't have an SD slot for expanded memory, whereas the s8+ does. Oh, and the charging adapter is completely new on the s8+.

          Here are a few problems w/ my S8+: 1) I cannot play video posts on Instagram. 2) While typing the unlock password, the screen automatically goes out. 3) The face recognition most often cannot recognize a face in front of the camera. Anyone else?   (3 Answers)

            Answer

            I have a Samsung Galaxy S8+, purchased this month (June). I do not have any problem with Instagram videos or other pics, or videos and pics from other sources. Also, it does not have any problems when I type unlock pw. It goes right to home screen. I do not use face recognition, but definitely have not had your first two problems. If your porblems were happening with my phone, I would take it to your carrier store. Mine is Sprint and they have always been very helpful with phone problems. But, so far I have none and love this phone. My previous phone was an LG G4.

            Answer

            I would recommend looking into the best buy credit card and getting the unlocked version of this device. You'll have an unlocked device unattached to any carrier and you can pay it off in a year with the best buy card

          I purchased a week ago with the $35.41 installment payments with Sprint, now it's $199 off with $27.08 installments. I got the $100 gift card, but now it comes with a free wireless charger. I'm still within my buyer's remorse or can BB pass on the promo?   (2 Answers)
