Sprint confirmed today that it plans to launch Sprint-branded prepaid cellular service, called Sprint As You Go, later this month. The service will offer several phones for full retail price along with altered versions of Sprint's service plans. Sprint will sell four phones, two smartphones (LG Optimus Elite for $150, Samsung Victory for $250) and two feature phones. The prepaid smartphone plans include unlimited talk, text, and data for $70 per month, and the prepaid feature phone plans include unlimited talk, text, and data for $50 per month. They will be available for purchase from Sprint's existing retail stores. "This is essentially a retail initiative for Sprint-branded stores only, created for customers who have an affinity for the Sprint brand and have indicated they want a no-contract option," said Sprint spokeswoman Jayne Wallace to Fierce Wireless. "As for our prepaid brands, this actually allows us to strengthen the focus on our primary prepaid sales channels." Sprint will not throttle or limit the amount of data consumed by customers who choose these plans. The customers will not, however, be able to roam onto other carriers' EVDO 3G networks, nor will Sprint-branded services, such as Navigation, work. Sprint As You Go launches January 25.
