Benefits for Organizations
You can use Sparrow to save on wireless service costs through
- Receiving donated, refurbished smartphones instead of purchasing new ones
- Optional usage-based pricing that allows you to pay only for the voice minutes, text messages, or data services you actually use
- Centralized management of your organization's mobile services
- Optional bring-your-own-device (BYOD) support (If you have a deactivated Sprint device, including iPhone 4 and iPhone 5 models, you can use your device with Sparrow service.)
After three billing cycles, a mobile device or mobile service will be donated to a person in need through Sparrow's nonprofit partners.

You can cancel or modify your Sparrow mobile service at any time. If you cancel services before the end of one year, you'll need to return your donated smartphone to Sparrow.
