Sprint is reportedly bringing back two-year service plans

They only stopped offering them in January.

According to a report from FierceWireless, Sprint Wireless is reversing course and is once again offering two-year service contracts to its customers. The company stopped offering contracts just this January following similar moves by other tier-1 carriers over the last few years. However, as of Friday, the Sprint website now offers customers four options in total: leasing a handset, buying it outright, paying for it in installments or once again signing a 2-year deal.

"We listened to our customers and are giving them more choices to get their new device," Sprint spokeswoman Michelle Leff Mermelstein told FierceWireless. "Sprint is the only carrier to offer the most choices to obtain a new device -- lease, installment bill, two-year contract or pay full retail price." The company's rivals at AT&T, Verizon and T-Mobile have all largely eliminated their 2-year contract offerings.
