I clicked upgrade device, but the next page just lists all new plans. Want to keep my exist plans with new device.

Albeit I'm in the same boat as usadaytrader (I Have SERO, so I can't get this offer else I have to get off it permanently), this is a great deal for people who are on current plans or are looking to get on board with Sprint!

I am not on a SERO Plan... but I do have a "legacy" one.  I was not required to change to a new plan when I ordered the phone.

BTW, just noticed that the price of the phone is starting to drop on other sites as well... Sprint now has it for $99.99, and Newegg is down to $49.99.

Awesome news for me, great timing.

I have to upgrade through Sprint, and I was looking at probably getting this one. My upgrade comes available in two days!

Does anyone know if Sprint does a hard pull for new service? Thinking about leaving Verizon.

I believe they do. AFAIK, all the major carriers do this.

Anyway to get this without changing plans? Im on the new framly plan with 8 other people and it was a pia getting that set up so i do not want to mess with that plan...

As a consumer/commercial underwriter I can tell you yes they do.  They only time you will get a soft pull with a company is if you have an existing account and are looking for some kind of upgrade which requires a look into credit.  New accounts of almost any kind (requiring credit) ALWAYS require hard pulls.

Just activated my Nexus 5 last night... I have to say, I am impressed with Sprint's implementation. No hint of the crappy "bloatware" that accompanies most of their phones. I have another Nexus 5 that I bought directly from the Google Play Store, and software/apps appear identical to me (no, I am not an expert, and I am not claiming to be one!) . I think the price that I paid with this Amazon deal, the ETF + $34.99 is less than what I paid from Google. Something to think about if you are on Sprint.

By the way, I did get this phone without changing plans, and I had to do nothing special. I have a 1500 minute family plan, with unlimited data; it is a plan not currently offered by Sprint.

Is this too good to be true? I am on the Free & Clear 750 plan and is ugrade eligible. When I select upgrade through Amazon, it says I can keep my plan and just need to add the $10 Premium Data package. Can this be true or will I have problems when I try to activate the Nexus 5?
