Sometimes life moves in slow motion. Like when your phone slips from your hands and ever so slowly falls towards the ground. You reach out to grab it, but then time speeds up, and your beloved phone hits the ground, shattering the display and your heart. If that’s you and you have a Samsung phone, Sprint will repair it for $50 for a limited time—even if you’re not a customer.
Yes, you read that right. Sprint will repair anyone’s phone, even if you’re a Verizon, AT&T, or prepaid carrier customer. Just bring in your Samsung phone to a Sprint Store with a repair center before February 9th, and they’ll take care of you.
Of course, you can’t have a fantastic offer without having an asterisk and mitigating details. Firstly, The company won’t repair just any Samsung phone. You’ll have to have one of the following phones:
- Samsung Galaxy S7
- Samsung Galaxy S8
- Samsung Galaxy S8+
- Samsung Galaxy S9
- Samsung Galaxy S9+
- Samsung Galaxy Note8
There are some gaps in there, like the S10 series, the S7 Edge, and the more recent Samsung Note phones. You also can’t use any phone insurance you may have to pay the $50 cost, which seems reasonable. And it’s a limit of one per customer, so nice try guy with a repair business trying to pawn off some work. Sprint won’t promise a same-day repair either, which is probably a wise move if this offer takes off.
The company also can’t guarantee it can fix every phone, which makes sense. And that’s the part where we get to what Sprint gets out of this arrangement. If your phone is unrepairable, Sprint will happily try to sell you on switching to its service to get a new phone. The company will even let you trade in other working phones to get a discount on a new phone. (No, your broken Samsung phone doesn’t count.)
Sprint’s only offering the deal until February 9th, or while supplies last (presumably, replacement screens). So if you broke your phone today, don’t wait. Get it repaired today.
