All the other carriers have announced plan changes, and Sprint didn’t want to be left out. Today, Sprint announced two new plans, both of which, you’ll be happy to hear, include unlimited data. Both plans include what Sprint is calling their Unlimited Guarantee, meaning Sprint can’t take away your unlimited talk, text and data for the entire life of your account. Even if your two-year contract has run out and Sprint decides to make radical changes to its plans, you won’t lose your unlimited plan.
The first plan is called Unlimited My Way and offers an experience that’s comparable to AT&T’s and Verizon’s shared data/family plans. You can put up to ten lines on one plan with unlimited talk to any number, mobile or otherwise, as well as unlimited texting. From there you can choose your data options. For $30 per month, you can get unlimited data for smartphones, and if you’re still rocking a feature phone, then the price is only $10 per month for unlimited data. If you don’t want unlimited data, you can choose 1GB of data for $20 per month. You can also forgo data altogether, but we don’t know why you’d want to do that.
The second plan is called My All-In, and it’s designed for individual lines. For $110 per month, you get unlimited talk, text and data and a full 5GB of mobile hotspot usage. That’s a pretty sick deal for what you’re getting. Sprint also threw together some comparisons regarding this plan. The My All-In plan will save you $240 per year over Verizon and $120 a year over both AT&T and T-Mobile.
The only thing about this announces is that it suggests Sprint is looking to drop unlimited data in the future. If it wasn’t, then there would be absolutely no reason to guarantee the company won’t take it away later. On the flip side, these new plans are really good deals. If you live in an area that’s covered by Sprint’s 4G LTE network, you should take a long, hard look at these plans.
