You would have to go back and speak with the salesman who misrepresented the discount to you. If he does not give you any satisfaction and does not reerse the sale, you must speak to the Manager. If you cannot get them to rescind the sale, the only recourse you have is to sue them in Small Claims Court in your County, naming the the store, and also naming the salesman, the manager and Sprint because they were acting on behalf of Sprint.

If you do not specify what you already know, I have no way of knowing your thoughts. Okay, I will give you the black and white law of this situation.
The law allows salesmen to embelish when trying to make a sale and it is common business practice. If the salesman made verbal promises to you and you relied on them without getting them in writing, then you will not be able to get out of the 2 year contract because the law imposes on you the obligation to protect yourself by getting things in writing and ignorance of the law is no defense.
The only way you would have a prayer is by taking the offense and suing them.
