Sprint Bill Pay Via Phone
You can also pay your bill by calling Sprint at 1-800-784-2608. You can also reach Sprint by calling *3 on the phones under your Sprint plan.
Once you call them, you’ll be sent to an IVR.
You’ll be asked for the phone number on your account and zip code in order for them to identify your account.
They’ll then give you the total amount due and when you need to pay by.
Then, they will ask for permission to charge the card you have on file for the total amount. The last 4 digits of the card on the card that you have on file will be read out.
Press 1 if you want to pay the full amount. If not press 2 or hang up.
If you’re having difficulties paying with the automated system, you can ask to speak to a representative.
They can help you set up your bill payment as well as arrange any payment plans that need to be set up if you have unexpected expenses. It takes time for your payment to go through so don’t wait until the last day to pay your bill.
Pay By Check
You can also pay Sprint by check. If you get your bill in the mail, there will be a free envelope that Sprint provides every month which you can use to mail your check.
You can tear the bottom half of the first page of your bill so you don’t need to write down the address your check will be sent to.
If you don’t have a paper bill but still want to pay by check, just pull up your latest statement online and see what PO box they ask you to send it to.
The most common Sprint PO boxes are PO Box 4191 Carol Stream, IL 60197 and PO Box 54977 Los Angeles, CA 90054.
I think one is for the East Coast and one is for the West Coast. Check your bill to make sure you’re sending it to the right PO box.
To pay your bill via mail you need to make your check payable to Sprint.
It takes a couple days for the mail to be delivered especially if you mail in the afternoon or on the weekends. Leave at least ten days before your due date to mail the check.
Pay By QR Code
You can also pay your Sprint bill via QR code.
If you get mailed Sprint bills, there will be a QR code on your bill that you can scan and pay.
These QR codes are not available on bills online, just paper bills.
Just turn on your phone camera and scan the QR code. You’ll be sent to a page to authorize the payment to Sprint with a card you have on file.
It’s one of the easier and most painless ways to pay.

Sprint has recently made headlines through false collections of taxpayer’s money, finding themselves in hot water with the New York-based FCC.
Though they are in the current spotlight, just like other cell phone carriers whether Verizon, AT&T, or Sprint, delinquent accounts will wind up with a debt collections company.
If you have an unpaid Sprint debt, it will show up on your credit report as a collections account.
They may even pass off the Sprint bill to a third-party agency to coerce payments from you.
Open accounts on your credit report can significantly impact your credit score for up to seven years.
Luckily, you can get the entry removed by negotiating with creditors in the proper way, stopping the hassle of unending phone calls about an unpaid cell phone bill.
Steps to Remove Sprint Collections From Your Credit Report
Here are the necessary steps to take to remove Sprint collections from your credit report.
Try to Settle with Sprint First
If Sprint hasn’t already sent the bill to collections, you should try to settle the matter by trying to contact Sprint directly.
This is generally the best way to resolve the matter and can prevent the debt from being moved to a collection agency.
In general, most companies are willing to work with you if you aren’t able to pay the full amount immediately.
Ask Sprint if you can work out a payment plan with them in order to pay the account number total balance.
This will keep you in good standing with them and avoid the debt from being sent to collections.
If Sprint has already sent the debt to collections, you will need to request a copy of your credit report to find out who currently owns the debt.
You can do this by contacting the three major credit bureaus (Experian, Equifax, and TransUnion) and requesting a free copy of your credit report.
You are entitled to one free copy per year under federal law.
From there, you can find out the collection agency’s identity and contact information.
You will need this information in order to request debt validation and negotiate a settlement.
If you are overwhelmed by dealing with negative entries on your credit report,
we suggest you ask a professional credit repair company for help.

Request Communication through U.S. Mail
Debt collectors are notorious for saying one thing over the phone and turning around and doing the opposite.
That’s why it is highly important to conduct all of your communication with Sprint collections through U.S. Mail.
Under the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA), you have the right to request that Sprint collections contact you specifically through U.S. Mail.
This can help you hold them accountable for what they say to you as well as prevent excessive or abusive communication.
Make sure you hold onto all of your communication with the debt collectors so that you can refer back to them later if you need to.
When Sprint or a third-party collector contacts you next, tell them that you are aware of your rights under the FDCPA and would like to communicate strictly in writing through U.S. Mail.
If they begin to argue with you, tell them that they are in violation of the FDCPA and hang up.
Request Debt Validation
The FDCPA gives you the right to validate your debt with the debt collector. This is an essential step to take even if you plan on paying the debt.
This is because you can get the negative entry removed from your credit report if Sprint collections get any details wrong on your credit report.
To verify your debt, you will need to send a debt validation letter to whoever currently owns the debt.
You will need to send this letter within 30 days of the first contact with the creditor. Otherwise, they may not respond.
For example, if you were a new customer with Sprint, but were unhappy with your service plan and switched to Verizon, you would be asked to turn in your iPhone or Android back to Sprint to avoid being charged.
Sometimes companies do not keep up with equipment returns well and will charge you despite your returning the equipment, equalling a collections call.
This is where the debt validation letter comes in handy. A debt validation letter should ask the creditor to:
- Prove that the debt is real and belongs to you.
- Show that the debt has not been paid.
- Prove that they are authorized to collect the debt.
When the debt collector returns with the information you requested, look over it carefully and note any inaccuracies.
If anything seems amiss, you can dispute the collections entry with the three major credit bureaus and have the entry removed entirely.
Make a Pay-For-Delete Agreement
If you are unable to get the collection entry deleted for inaccuracies, your next bet is to work with Sprint collections to come up with a pay-for-delete agreement.
This is a long shot as far as working with debt collectors goes, but it is a possibility if you have exhausted your options.
A pay-for-delete agreement is when you agree to pay the full amount or a portion of the debt in exchange for the creditor to stop reporting the debt to major credit bureaus.
If the debt has moved to a collection agency, they will be more willing to negotiate on this than if the debt is still with Sprint.
To get started, write a letter to the creditor offering to pay the debt in exchange for deletion.
If they agree, make sure that you get this agreement in writing with unambiguous language.
Make your first payment after you get this contract and check your credit report in 30 days.
If the entry is still on your credit report, contact the collector and remind them of your agreement.

FTC calls Sprint on $2.9 million risk-based pricing violation
Two people walk into a deli and both order a pastrami on rye. When the check arrives, one is charged $8. The other is surprised to get a bill for $15.99. That’s not the start of an old Henny Youngman joke. It’s an analogy that raises some of the issues in the FTC’s proposed $2.95 million settlement with Sprint for allegedly charging customers with lower credit scores a monthly fee without giving them the proper up-front notice required by law.
The FTC’s lawsuit centers on mobile service provider Sprint’s Account Spending Limit Program. Under the program, consumers with lower credit scores were charged a monthly fee of $7.99 on top of what they already had to pay for cell phone and data service. But here’s the thing: Many consumers didn’t know they had been “enrolled” in the program and weren’t given mandatory information that would have made it possible for them to do meaningful comparison-shopping before they were locked in. The FTC says that by tacking that extra $7.99 fee onto consumers' monthly bills without making required disclosures, Sprint violated the Fair Credit Reporting Act and its Risk-Based Pricing Rule.
Because Sprint bills consumers for services after the fact, the company is covered by the Risk-Based Pricing Rule. Under the Rule, if consumers are offered service on less favorable terms based on their credit report or credit score, the company has to inform them of that fact by giving them what the Rule calls a risk-based pricing notice.
But according to the complaint, in many cases Sprint failed to provide customers it placed in its Account Spending Limit Program with all of the required disclosures. The FTC says Sprint’s notices omitted key information necessary for consumers to determine if their lower credit scores were based on errors in their consumer reports. That’s a particularly important consideration, given FTC studies showing that credit reports often contain mistakes that can have a major impact on what people have to pay for things like cell phone service.
Sprint's timing raised concerns, too. The complaint alleges that Sprint often gave consumers the required notices too late for them to shop around for a better deal without having to cough up a hefty early termination fee.
In addition to a $2.95 million civil penalty, the proposed settlement requires Sprint to comply with the Risk-Based Pricing Rule. But that’s not all. From here on in, Sprint will have to give customers the required notice – this time, with complete information – within five days of signing up for Sprint service or by a date that gives them the ability to avoid recurring charges like those in the Account Spending Limit program. Sprint also has to send corrected risk-based pricing notices to consumers who received incomplete notices from the company.
Do your company’s practices put you at risk for a Risk-Based Pricing Rule violation? One important compliance tip: Make sure your notices give consumers all the information required by law.
