Sprint Nextel today re-launched Sprint with a new brand, new calling plans and changes to their sports sponsorships. Using the new tagline "yes you can," Sprint will launch a media campaign including both advertising and the re-design and re-branding of all 1600 Sprint stores. The carrier is also announcing new calling plan features. Most notably, they are switching to free incoming calls as long as subscribers are not roaming. Nextel subscribers already have a similar feature, and most European carriers bill this way. The new plans also feature free mobile to mobile calls for $5 per month and nights that begin at 7 for $5 per month and 6 for $10.

WHAT A RIPOFF!

Just went onto the "New Sprint" site and was screwing around looking at prices... I just chose a random phone so I could get to the plans...the unlimited incoming calls plan is NOT fair and flexible and is EXPENSIVE! It was 79.99 for 800 min, NO roaming, NO mobile to mobile and nights start at 9 standard.

What good is unlimited incoming calls? I will have to get such a low plan I will have to wait for everyone to call me...I wont be able to call out!

I think it SOUNDS like a great idea...and they will rope quite a few customers in with this new ...

Any in-coming call would not use mins?

Do you think other carriers will follow Sprint freein-calling?
...
Its a different set of plans with the lowest being 300mins and free incoming. Its not Fair and flex.

The free incoming plan are plans that if one calls you, you dont pay for it with your mins or dollar amount. it doesnt cost you what so ever. (obviously the monthly charge.)

Nights at 6?

Choice!
But no one sees the value. I have never had a customer get nights at 6. One talked about it, and changed his mind.

Customers will pay $5 extra, but not $10.
