Sprint’s second attempt at ending two-year contracts will be finished in about a week, if this leak is anything to go by.

The number four carrier put the hammer down on contracts in January before bringing them back at the end of February. It then decided to take a more gradual sunset to the payment option by not offering contracts to new customers in May.

Well, PhoneArena has the second half of the program in an obtained memo, saying that phones bought in-store with a new line or on upgrade won’t be on contract starting August 26. Leasing and monthly installment plans will be the norm. Here’s the catch: Sprint.com and telephone sales will still offer two-year pricing, though.

Verizon is another contract hold-out, offering them only to its upgraders.

We’ll have to see if and when the contract obligation finally sees its slow drain culminate in a death.
