Sprint, Cingular Launch New Enterprise Features

Sprint Nextel today announced a new pricing plan called Business Essentials. The plan allows companies to buy large buckets of minutes and distribute them to employees using whatever calling plan suits each particular person. It also provides free mobile to mobile calls for employees on Sprint or nationwide walkie talkie to those on Nextel. Sprint users can add Ready Link PTT and Nextel subscribers can add mobile to mobile for an additional $5 per month. Cingular yesterday launched OfficeReach, an application that allows businesses to assign each employee a single phone number and internal phone extension which will contact that employee at up to three separate telephones. The system will attempt to reach the employee at each number in a pre-defined order when the unified OfficeReach number is called. Similar services have been available in corporate PBX systems before, however OfficeReach does not require PBX equipment.

small business

i can see many small companies taking advantage of this. Smile
It's interesting. When I worked for Airtouch, when they were still around, there was a system very similar to this in development. It was structued a little differently, but essentially the same concept.
I'm surprised it took this long to come out.

family plan

if they would hurry up and incorporate something like this into family plans, that would be great. designating X amount of minutes to the kids and even enable a cut off on the phone, similar to the spending limit, would be VERY attractive for families to come to sprint and get a family plan
