i bought a new spring phone for the 9 dollars a month payment for 24 months.
when i read my contract, it still says 33 dollars for months 1 to 24.
what is concerning as a consumer, is that through the contract no where does it state it will be 9 dollars after x amont of months for my future sprint bills.
is this an oversight issue ? i am mostly concerned.

I had the same confusion when I purchased a phone via a similar type of deal via Verizon.
What they do is charge you the full amount the first month and then deduct the overage from your next bill.
This isn't a Best Buy thing it is a Sprint thing. Then then month after your phone is paid off you will get one more deduction to your bill.

thanks for the reply. so basically, the savings is credited from your monthly plan ?
in a way, you are saving money, however, you are 'locked in' to some extent for the 2 year duration.
is this correct ?

AND that is exactly why they do it this way to lock you in.
I purchaed my Pixel 2XL for $450 off last year. GREAT Savings. So my payments are some $35 a month for the phone but I then get $18.75 refund on my next bill. If I want to pay it off and get a different phone I then pay $35 times the number of months left.
Really not a big deal for me as I have been with the same carrier for a long time. And as an addded bonus is keeps me from rushing out to buy the next big thing to play phone games on, send text, and browse facebook.
