Sprint Launches New Unlimited Plans
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.

Palm, a California company that purchased the rights to the Palm brand from TCL, today launched a new device it calls an ultra-mobile product that "syncs with your smartphone to keep you connected but not consumed." The idea is to allow people to access their vital apps when needed, but keep them from staring at their screen all day — particularly when they are out and about.

T-Mobile is launching its cheaper T-Mobile Connect plans starting this Wednesday, March 25th, instead of waiting until its merger with Sprint closes, as originally planned. There are two plan options: $15/month (plus tax) for 2 GB of high-speed phone data, or $25/month for 5 GB of high-speed phone data.
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!
