While Sprint may no longer be selling any Windows Phones, the good news is that they have not abandoned their Windows Phone customers either.
At the end of October they told us that they plan to deliver the Windows Phone 8.1 update to the HTC 8XT in early December 2014, and today they re-iterated that the update is still on its way this month.
@ThatOneGuy4549 We’re planning to push the update out this month. Stay tuned here for the latest news on updates for our devices.

Windows Phone 8.1 will bring a large number of welcome features to the now venerable handset, including start screen backgrounds, VPN, folders, action and notification centre and more, but will of course not deliver Lumia-specific features such as improved camera performance.
Thanks Yalç?n for the tip.
