Sprint Intros $60 Unlimited Plan with Hardware Hitch
Sprint today announced a new unlimited plan that it says undercuts the competition. The plan, which will be available beginning August 22, provides a single line of service with unlimited talk, text, and data for $60 per month. Sprint claims the offering beats T-Mobile's best price by $20 per month, and that similar options aren't available from AT&T or Verizon Wireless. There is a catch. In order to qualify for the plan, customers need to either bring their own device, pay full retail for a device, or sign up for Sprint's Easy Pay financing plan. The Sprint $60 Unlimited Plan for single lines follows a complete overhaul of Sprint's family share plans, which offer savings to four or more lines of service.

glad for one thing
We've gone to buying the prior generation flagship when we upgrade. $250 and done. No contract, nothing preventing me from jumping ship.
Nice, but hoping for better
It is a competitive price. And with Sprint offering no credit check options it could be a great deal. However if unlimited, my way is sticking around, contract might be a better deal sometimes. I haven't done the math yet, but getting an iphone 5s or galaxy s5 would be $87 a month on this new plan.
Not really all that different.
IT is marginally better (you can put your device on payments) then boost, virgin, att and countless other prepaid plans. I would actually rate this plan worse then ATT and T-mobile prepaid plans because they offer the ability to hotspot/tether your device.
Once again sprint has over promised and under delivered this does not deserve to be called "disruptive pricing."
What about existing customers?
In the FAQ's on the site it says you must be out of contract to take advantage of the new plan.
Here's an idea, find someone on T-Mobile to refer you over, get your ETF paid and move back to Sprint if y...
So that means that you're better off staying with your current plan...
Finally a smart move from Sprint after the last one........keeping unlimited data.......
