Sprint and AT&T end two-year contracts today

Surprise! Someone leaked a Sprint employee training manual yesterday showing off the company’s plans to kick most of the two-year contracts it offers to the bucket. We did question when the move was going to happen, though, as it was the night before AT&T was tipped to stop the contracts, too.

Lo and behold, Sprint and AT&T have both dropped them today. Both companies’ sites do not feature phones payable through a two-year contract. The two are tied for last in committing to equipment installment plans and leasing options for phones as Verizon did last year. T-Mobile made the initial move in 2013.

Sprint is also taking the opportunity to extend its Open World and Global Roaming programs to another 36 countries, including Austria, Finland, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Netherlands, Poland, Taiwan and Turkey. The programs now cover 110 countries altogether.

Open World allows Sprint users traveling within supported countries in the Americas unlimited calling, text and 2G data with 1GB of “high-speed” data while Global Roaming offers essentially the same to those flying outside of the Americas but without the high speed data allotment.
