Go to the "Create a Profile" page on the Sprint website (see References).

Register for an account. If you have not done so already, you will need to create a user name and password for a Sprint online account. You need to know your phone number and PIN to set up an account. If you have lost or forgotten your PIN, Sprint will provide you with a new one.

Sign in at the "My Account" page (see Resource).

Click on “Pay Now” under Your Bill. You can find the Your Bill tab once you have logged in to your account.

Choose your payment amount. Enter the amount owed on your bill.

Choose your payment method. You can pay with a debit or credit card. You can also pay directly from your bank account, but Sprint needs to validate the account, and this can take up to 10 business days. If you wish to use your bank account for future payments, click on “Add an Account” under Bank Account, and add your bank account information.

Click on “Add a Card” under ATM/Debit or Credit Card. You must enter the number of your credit card or debit card, including expiration dates.

Verify and submit your payment information.
