Sprint Launches New Unlimited Plans
Updated: Added launch date
Sprint today announced two new types of service plans: "Unlimited, My Way" and "My All-in". Both plans come with a guarantee that customers can keep the unlimited features of their plan for life. The My All-in plan includes unlimited data, text, and talk - plus up to 5 GB of mobile hotspot use - for a flat $110/month. The Unlimited, My Way plans are available for individuals or families up to ten lines. All lines includes unlimited talk and text. Each line can have its own data option, which can be $10/month for unlimited data on basic phones, $20/month for 1 GB on smartphones, or $30/month for unlimited data on smartphones. An add-on for mobile hotspot usage includes 1 GB for $10/month. Additional savings apply with more lines. For example, with four or more lines, unlimited talk, text, and data can work out to as little as $50/month per line. The plans are available starting tomorrow.
Sprint Debuts Unlimited Plan of Its Own
Sprint today announced Unlimited Freedom, a service plan that provides unlimited talk, text, and data for two lines at $100 per month. Sprint says the Unlimited Freedom plan offers "optimized streaming" for "video, gaming, and music" and "unlimited LTE data for most everything else." Specifically, video resolution is capped at 480p resolution when streamed over the network, while games are capped at 2Mbps, and music is capped at 500Kbps.
Sprint Ups the Ante with $150 Unlimited Family Bundle
Sprint today announced a new promotion that will give a family of four unlimited talk, text, and data for $150 per month. A single line for the unlimited plan costs $75 per month.
Cricket Ups Data Buckets and Brings Back Unlimited Service
Cricket Wireless today improved its service plans with more data. Beginning November 5, the $30 monthly plan will include 2 GB of data (up from 1 GB), and the $40 plan will include 5 GB of data (up from 4 GB).
MetroPCS Introduces $60 Family Plan
MetroPCS is offering families a new deal that starts at $60 per month for two lines. The refreshed family plan includes unlimited talk, text, 6 GB of data, Music Unlimited, and mobile hotspot for each line.
Alarming this must be
Be wary if you have any kind of discount.
The new My Way unlimited also comes up to $150, but is $90 for the base and $60 for the data. Sprint ONLY APPLIES THE DISCOUNT TO THE DATA, in my case, the $60 which would pretty much cut my current savings in half. Sticking with my current set up as a result.
The 15 year olds...
Looking at how the price points are, I think it's clear most Sprint customers are current...
So to beat T-Mobile's price they have to account for a financed phone. Paid $99 one time for my Lumia 521 and am enjoying my savings.
...OHHH...and don't forget T-Mobile gives you 500MB of tethering for free!
