Yes, anyone can, without a contract extension. You just have to be on a eligible plan or move to a eligible plan (everything data INDIVIDIUAL or SHARED)

hmmm... I'm reading that it's only outgoing calls, but from other sources they say incoming mobile calls are also free? I work for RadioShack, but in the memo it didn't mention incoming calls as well... didn't really occur to me until after I closed the store. So... anyone know?
To verify, any mobile, any time doesn't work while you're roaming.

It's just for outgoing calls...and the majority of Sprint customers don't roam.

Wow Sprint. Props on the new plan!!

Well, as far as I know, the Sprint Everything Data plans offer NATIONWIDE coverage so that means there's NO roaming done. Am I right to assume this???

Or, if you are talking on your Sprint phone while you're using a Verizon tower, even though you are in America-would that be considered roaming now?? And, if so, would that use up your anytime minutes?

Also, do we still get the nights/weekends at 7 pm for calling our land line friends unlimited??

There is roaming, even though Sprint offers nationwide coverage. And in those instances where there is no Sprint coverage, and you need to roam off of something else it uses up anytime minutes.
After 7 it's free no matter who you call, landline or cellphone.

Sprint didn't sell their towers. They entered into an agreement with Erickson where Erickson will be responsible for the upkeep of the towers, etc. Sprint towers are still sprint towers.

Sprint DID sell 3,300 (majority) of their towers to Tower Co. Sprint is leasing from Tower Co.

Really, That goes against everything I know to be true--- I would love a link just so I can see this for myself. It would make a pretty big difference in the value of T-Mo's offer.

OVERLAND PARK, Kan., Jul 23, 2008 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- Sprint Nextel (NYSE:S) today announced an agreement to sell approximately 3,300 towers to TowerCo for approximately $670 million in cash. Additionally, the two companies have entered into a long term leasing agreement where TowerCo will provide Sprint Nextel with wireless communications towers to support the company's CDMA, iDEN and WiMAX networks.

"By leasing rather than owning these network facilities, we can better focus on our core business of providing communications services to consumers, businesses and government customers," said Bob Azzi, senior vice president, Field Engineering and Operations, Sprint Nextel.

Another thing to clear up that I just found out today, if you're on an existing everything data share plan 69.99 individual and up, or 129.99 family and up, the change will not be added on until your next billing cycle. As for new customers or customers changing their plan to a qualified plan, the change happens immediately.

Roaming is different then international roaming.

Roaming calls are not included with the any mobile anytime but your plan (Everything data) does include roaming so even if your roaming its included in your plan and THAT or THOSE roaming calls will deduct from your anytime minutes as well as landlines and calls to voicemail. And International calls...

Hoped that help everybody and more questions just post them. 😉

Well, yesterday, I called Sprint and they said:

-If your phone says it is roaming (on most phones it'll have an 'R' that lets you know), then you are using up your anytime minutes-before or after 7 pm, it doesn't matter.

-If you are not roaming and you are calling a 1800 number before 7pm, you are using up your anytime minutes. After 7pm, its free.

-If you are not roaming and you are calling a landline before 7 pm, you are using your anytime minutes. After 7pm, its free.

-If you are not roaming and you are calling a cellphone its free at anytime of the day.

So, in conclusion, if you happen to be an area where Sprint has poor coverage and you find yourself roaming a lot and you use more than 900 minutes then get the Simply Eve...

So the only time the unlimited mobile to mobile, unlimited nights and weekends and unlimited any mobile any time is when you are on a sprint tower? That doesnt make much sense to me....just curious...i have vzw right now but this new plan does peak my curiousity

NO. I work for sprint. Only the anymobile anytime ONLY works on sprint towers. Your nights and weekends still start at 7pm EVEN if your roaming.

And even if you live in a area where you tend to roam the plan is still a great plan. because if you live in that area and you had 900 minutes and manage, now u can still drop down to the 450 minute plan because even with a 50:50 ratio (Roaming Vs. Non-Roaming calls) your still calling cell phones more then you call landlines. So if you use 800 minutes a month and half are when your roaming then thats 400 minutes and if your on a 450 minute plan then you still have 50 minutes remaining. With that being said I highly doubt that anybody has sprint that roams half the time. Not even the dumbest pers...
