    Default Confused

    So I preordered my sprint iPhone 7 plus. Still hasn't shipped. I was able to reserve a 7+ at the local Apple Store. If I cancel my preorder, can I do the iPhone forever program at the Apple Store??? Apple is saying yes since I'm not a new customer.

    The Apple upgrade program has nothing to do with your sprint account. Even if you don't cancel you will still be able to use the Apple program.

    Once you cancel that order through Sprint your line should be eligible again.

    I think she wants to know about Sprint's iPhone Forever program not Apple's upgrade program. Is there a way for her to cancel her Sprint order and use iPhone Forever at the Apple Store instead? I'm on the iPhone Forever program but I preordered in store. Wish I could help.

    But if I do the apple upgrade won't that mess up my current plan? I'm still paying installments on my iPhone forever.

    Sell it and try to pay it off , or reserve a phone and try to have them redo your phone sprint iPhone forever(I mean pay the upgrade price then send back in the phone). The only issue may be is that if you owe money or pay to upgrade it may not show up at the Apple Store or may not allow you to.

    Call Sprint and ask how to cancel my iPhone forever plan. Are you required to turn in your phone? Are there cancellation fees?

    If your iPhone Forever plan is under a lease, which I believe all iPhone Forever plans through Sprint are, that may cause issues. Because you HAVE to turn that phone into Sprint. But you can't turn it in without getting another iPhone unless you're at the end of your lease terms.

    You would pay off the balance of the phone as if it were just a lease I believe.

    That is correct. I was on T-Mobile and that was the case. You turned in your phone and paid off the remaining lease payments. Or kept the phone paid a specified amount for it and still had to pay off the lease. Either way you had to pay the full lease off.

    Not if you care about your credit it's not. They do a hard credit inquiry every time you upgrade and those stay on your credit report for 2 years.
    Screw that save the cash, buy the phone, sale the phone it will only end up costing your $400 (you'll get at least $600 selling used).

    Sprint doesn't. Which carrier does a credit inquiry?

    If they are using the Apple program they are. If they have their own internal program then maybe not.
    From Apples own page "Available to qualified customers with a credit check" fine print. They do this every time you get a new phone.
    iPhone Upgrade Program - Apple

    Note that it is a "Hard Inquiry" not a soft one.

    Or just simply give it back to Sprint after you've cancelled your pre-order with them. Their iPhone forever program is completely separate from Apple's upgrade program.

    Yes. Not the same as the Apple program from Apple.
