    Sprint is one of the main carriers here in the States. Not quite sure what you meant with the second part of your question, sorry :/

    Sprint, as stated above, is a global internet carrier, so getting a 2 year contract will provide you with internet access/coverage along with Data, Call and text.

    Also, good job not trying to get an iphone/ apple phone, terribly over priced.

    2 year contract is also cheaper I think.

    So Sprint is a phone carrier which supplies the phone with everything it needs such as calling, web, and text

    The phone is a Sprint phone and Sprint locks their phones so that it could be only used with Sprint. You won't be able to switch the phone to another carrier such as Verizon and SD cards won't work.

    The contract is basically an agreement in which you must stick to Sprint during a 2 year term. Within that contract you will select the plan you will like to have but you must stick with Sprint during those two years. If you want to leave Sprint you will have to pay a cancellation fee which is a couple of hundred of dollars depending on your plan.

    The two options of the contract basically means this. If you're an existing Sprint customer you can extend your contract for 2 more years and pay $400 and get the phone. If you are a new Sprint customer you still need to pay $400 for the contract and the phone. Both are pretty much the same so don't worry about that.

    The easy payment is self explanatory. This allows you to pay per month rather then pay it all at once. The phone replacement is when you lose or break you phone. Sprint doesn't cover the repairs or stolen phones/lost phones so you will have to buy a new one.

    If your friend in interested in it he should call Sprint and see if there are any better plans that fit his needs. Sprint almost always bundle their plans with newer phones to attract customers so I would be surprised if they had other offers as well. Best Buy is just a retailer, it's best to call the main sellers

    Sprint coverage is pretty awful.

    I live in the middle east as well, I bought my iphone from america. If the phone is meant to be for you, Tell your friend to look for a "UNLOCKED" phone. This means it won't be restricted to sprint or AT&T
    hope this helps

    Definitely look for an unlocked one, you have no use for a phone which isn't operative, lol.
