    Everything you need to know about Sprint's Unlimited Plans - 2/29/08

    Advertisement





    Sprint customers... have a reason to rejoice. Sprint's plans include unlimited voice, data, text messages, Sprint TV, Sprint Music, GPS, Direct Connect and Group Connect. See how it stacks up above with Verizon and AT&T. It's a step in the right direction.

    Press release:
    In an industry-defining move, Sprint (NYSE:S) today announced it will launch a domestic unlimited pricing plan that gives customers unlimited voice, data, text, e-mail, Web-surfing, Sprint TV(SM), Sprint Music, GPS Navigation, Direct Connect(R) and Group Connect(R) for $99.99 a month. The new pricing plan is available to existing and new customers beginning tomorrow. "This is a bold, unprecedented move," said Dan Hesse, president and CEO, Sprint Nextel. "Wireless today is about much more than just voice. It is about data services - texting, email, video, pictures, music, navigation, surfing the Web and more. Customers want these applications, but without complexity and without having to worry about their bill. The $99.99 Simply Everything plan delivers it all right to the palm of their hand now.
    "Today's handsets are powerful data devices. Each day they get better, faster and easier to use with more intuitive user interface designs and full Internet access. Our high-speed networks were built with this in mind and it's where we believe the battleground lies - offering fast access to the best content and data services. We are removing the barriers for customers to feel free to use all of the features of their phones."
    The $99.99 Simply Everything plan is available to customers on both Sprint's CDMA and iDEN networks. Existing Sprint customers can switch to the Simply Everything plan without extending their current contract either by contacting Sprint customer service or by stopping by any participating Sprint retail location. New line activations require a two-year agreement.
    For families, Simply Everything includes an incremental $5 discount for each incremental line, up to five lines on the same bill. For example, two lines would amount to $194.98 ($99.99 + $94.99); a third line would cost an additional $89.99. This is in sharp contrast to the multi-line unlimited rates offered by some competitors. The Sprint plan offers significant savings the more lines a customer adds.
    The move to unlimited pricing that includes data signifies a turning point for the wireless industry. Nationally accepted measures of voice quality now show very little, if any, difference among the top wireless providers.
    "All major carriers have good voice networks," Hesse said. "Our network is about more than voice and more than just being the largest wireless data network. It is about allowing customers to connect with people, information and entertainment. It is about simplicity, usability and real value. The $99.99 Simply Everything plan eliminates overage surprises and provides a worry-free environment.
    "Our investments in innovation and speed are becoming the new areas of differentiation. These are the areas where we perform best and where we can deliver a wireless advantage for our customers."

    This means nothing!

    A McDonalds double cheeseburger, large fries, and a coke costs $7.

    You can go to Red Robin and get a burger 3 times the size, bottomless fries, and a beer for $15.

    The cheaper meal doesn't make it a better meal.

    Just because Sprint is lowering prices doesn't make them a better provider, just a cheaper one. If there are some of you in here who get a good reception with Sprint, you're one of the very few! They're dropping prices because they're losing customers. Don't make the mistake of staying with them over price.

    7 dollars? Wow! But great point...Sprint is also home of the worst cust service in America it could damn near be free and I'd stay with TMobile.

    perhaps in the next quarter sprint will lose 60 bil instead of 30 and their unlimited plan will only be priced at 49.99$ you'd have to pay me to use sprint. the only thing i see "sprinting" is the death of a company. i'll stick with t-mobile and their similarly priced unlimited services.

    do they even have a single device that uses every feature this plan offers? and this is still no good for blackberry users because they still don't allow them to send/receive picture messages... ill stay with t-mobile's unlimited plan, $120 a month for unlimited everything, and pictures messages work...with decent customer service, and there signal service is pretty decent in los angeles county.

    I think this is great. Unlimited everything except pam for 99 is great. Sprint cs does suck but their reception is 10x better than tmobile and offer far faster data speeds than tmobile could ever dream of.

    Now sprint only has to improve its cs and get unique phones

    I notice how they conveniently left TMO off of thier chart!!! I've seen the fake reports about wi-fi on TMO, but let me tell you the truth, My wi-fi speed is amazing I dont care what anyone says. This is a good plan for sprint though. can't knock it, but not messin with TMO.
    You can't learn anything if you're talking!

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~it all about your personal pref, I been with sprint from tha day they opened, never had problems, maybe I am lucky, I would like to know if this is a family plan or 1 person plan.all compaines are the same, they all want to make $$ don't care about little guys. So its just your persona pref on what company you want.

    Yes, you are one of the Lucky ones, Sprint Sucked when it was alone and got even worst when it joined forces with Nextel and the Service just simply Sucks!

    So no matter how low they drop the price, it "Sprint" still Sucks, I'll stick with AT&T, They're slightly higher prices, excellent service & Customer Service and Rollover Minutes

    Ok all have great points of view, especially the CS piece... I took a closer look at the fine print and it does not seem to be as unlimited as we would believe it to be... Take a look for yourselves.
