It seems that Sprint had an ace up their sleeve.

Sprint expected to undercut rivals' call plans
Wednesday February 20, 10:16 am ET

NEW YORK (Reuters) - No. 3 U.S. mobile service provider Sprint Nextel Corp (NYSE:S - News) is expected to offer flat-rate calling plans at up to a 40 percent discount to its rivals, hurtling the industry into a price war, analysts said on Wednesday.
The two largest U.S. mobile service providers, Verizon Wireless and AT&T Inc (NYSE:T - News), on Tuesday unveiled $99.99-a-month plans for unlimited calls. T-Mobile USA went a step further by including text messaging in that pri...

I will you too!

Looking forward to open competition. 😁 It helps the consumer. I can't wait until Sprint or someone else also drops 1-2yr contract commitments.

Give me unlimited at a decent price, and no contract, and then we'll see who truly has the best service.

Ultimately you can have service without a contract if you don't mind paying full retail price for a phone. 😁

yes, on an inpulse plan you can, otherwise a contract is required.

while i love the idea of a lower cost of unl minutes its too cheap for minutes, they will not be able to afford to keep it. look at the old fair and flexible plans they didnt last forever neither will this for them

It won't change the crappy network and horrible customer service. Sprint will still be the cesspool for people with no credit. I don't think the other carriers will be too worried.

who cares????sprint lost almost a million people in the last 2 quarters so far, they can drop all the prices they want, but people hate them and it is sooooo easy to port over a sprint customer because their customer service is just as terrible as their signal strength and crappy phones.

FACT : VZW gets 26 Sprint contracts for every ONE that leaves us.

Not to mention all the job cuts they have been making. That will just give customers longer waite times to get service.

Except that most of the job cuts have nothing to do with customer service.

Man, if only people put as much effort into being informed as they do at being fanboys...

Yup you will get unlimited calls for 60 bucks.. the fact that you will have little or no service kinda defeats the purpose.... Unless you live within 20 feet of an interstate! he he!

yeah you're so right I do not know what I am doing with my bad ass Touch making calls and using my unlimited data for 30 bucks..silly me 🤣
