• Sprint Offering New $90/Month Plan



    Just recently we reported that CEO of mobile carrier T-Mobile, John Legere, announced that they have surpassed Sprint in being the third largest carrier in the country. But Sprint has responded back by releasing a new aggressive shared data plan at a better value than carriers AT&T, Verizon, and T-Mobile. The new promotion is a Family Share plan at $90 per month for a maximum of 10 lines and 12GB of data. It also includes unlimited text and talk, but the maximum 10 lines promo ends on March 31, 2016.

    Other carriers have plans that are also tempting but arenít quite what Sprint is offering. Verizon and AT&T have free cloud storage along with unlimited texting to international users, meanwhile T-Mobile has unlimited international data and texting. These offerings are not something Sprint is giving their users. On Sprintís new plan, the fee users would normally pay on adding an extra device on the plan, will be reduced by T-Mobile. The normal fee of $25 will be reduced to just $15 and for those signing the 128GB plan, T-Mobile will waive the fee entirely. Accroding to Sprint,

    For customers switching their number to Sprint from another carrier, Sprint is waiving the access charge for handsets, tablets and mobile broadband devices on 12GB or higher data allowances for up to 10 lines for one year. All devices must be purchased through Sprint Easy Pay or the Sprint iPhone for Life Plan. A family of four will save $720 in data access fees for the year.
    When do you think this feud between Sprint and T-Mobile will end? Let us know what you think in the comments below!

      First part is true, I wish the second part was too: cos I have to pay 78 bucks a month which interferes with my ability to eat each month.

      I never would have but for the fact that both ATT and Verislime were 150 bucks minimum when I was buying my 4S 2 years ago. And those were not even unlimited plans, they were 2gb plans. At least the Sprint plan was unlimited Data.

      The plan is actually 69 bucks a month, but then there are 10 bucks worth of other charges, and another fee on top of that, which gets dropped 2 years after service starts- so I was paying 90 bucks a month until last June. Then it dropped down to 80. I have a AAA card now, which gives me another 7% discount, but that amounts to two dollars off basically.

      All of the major land line carriers have Care Discount, which gives me a land line for 6 bucks. They are finally offering care for cell service, but you have to go through some crappy carriers that don't offer iPhones at all. That's not how it's supposed to work, the way Care works is by adding a discount to your power bill and your phone bill, there aren't supposed to be special carriers for it. But the cell service is brand new.

      Are you scrimping on data given you're missing letters and punctuation in your post?

      And I've said this before but cellular service seems like a complete rip off in the U.S. What are the pre-paid plans like?

      I dont really get these US prices for mobile. Here in Denmark you have

      Unlimited talk
      Free text and free MMS
      30 GB Data (4G)
      Spotify premium
      For about 30 $

      And you only sign up for 1 month at a time, if you buy a mobile phone it is 6 month and you can
      take the price of the phone and put out over 24 month without any extra cost.

      Seams very expensive in the US

      My point exactly. In the UK I'm on a £20 plan 1 month contract, equates to approx $30 for which I get unlimited minutes, unlimited texts, 3GB of 4G data, although I pay for international and MMS. US carriers seem to suck for value

      I'm also in the uk, I have an iPhone 6 128gb with unlimited calls, unlimited text, 20gb of 4g data to burn through and if that wasn't it, I also get free Spotify premium, free Netflix with 2 hd screens and free BT wifi for under £50 a month on Vodaphone. I can't understand why the USA plans are so expensive?

      We have quite a few pay as you go services here in the U.S. that only cost $30-$35 a month, but like yours you only usually get 4G speeds, which is enough for some people. You get some data, unlimited messaging, unlimited calls, and you can pay extra for a nicer phone. The cell service isn't always that great and the data speeds fluctuate is what I've been told.

      Honestly though I have a family plan with AT&T which includes LTE, hot spotting, around 50GB of shared data (thanks to AT&T's new rollover plan), unlimited text and talk, and obviously free BT and Wifi, there's 7 of us on the plan and we each pay about $35 a month which is a pretty good deal! And in our location we get really good cell service and consistent LTE speeds.

      It still sounds like you have some great plans over there though, that's awesome!

      I'm stuck with sprint until next year, my phone is always on extended, I only get 3G (2 bars of signal) unless I travel one town away.

      Ugh.

      4G and LTE are the same thing in the UK. My 4G is faster than my wifi which pisses me off no end

      Part of this is because the US is 2243 times larger in area than Denmark, so way more towers are needed. The other part of it is because they can get away with charging that much.

      Depends on your tariff and carrier. I was on an unlimited data tariff prior to this one but it was limited to 3G and you couldn't tether officially (I used tether me) as somehow they remotely removed the personal hotspot setting. With my 4G tariff I can tether personal hotspot for no extra cost.l, but obviously it counts toward your data allowance.
