[USA only] Tired of your current cell phone service provider? Sprint will pay you up to $175 per line to switch

[1]As the battle over AT&T’s acquisition of T-Mobile rages on, Sprint has launched a campaign to entice customers to make the switch to Sprint. (I am sure Sprint is, in particular, eyeballing unhappy T-Mobile customers.)

To try to convince consumers to jump ship and come to Sprint, Sprint is offering up to $175 credit per line for every line moved from a different carrier to Sprint. However, there are few catches:

This promotion is available until June 23, 2011 for home consumers and July 23, 2011 for business customers.

What makes this deal even sweeter is that Sprint has one of the most economical plans among the top four providers in the USA. Before you jump ship to Sprint, however, you may want to make sure they have coverage where you live. While I cannot confirm or deny the rumors, I am hearing that Sprint recently lost a large roaming contract with Verizon and their 3G coverage (and strength) has dropped significantly. Their 4G coverage has always been spotty.

That said, in a post-Tmo world Sprint has struck first blood: BOOM, wallet shot.

Current Sprint customers feel free to provide feedback!
