As expected, Sprint has announced its Hail Mary Simply Everything plan, offering customers $99 unlimited calling, premium services and DATA! That’s a better bang for your buck, especially for those of us paying $40 a month for unlimited data. Meanwhile, the party line from the top two carriers is basically, “Customers don’t care about price because our services are so much better.” AT&T’s telecom head John Stankey and Verizon’s CEO Ivan Seidenberg should tell that to the millions of Americans who shop at Wal-Mart.

  1. sprint actually offers 2 lines for $99. thats half the price and more features than anyone else. sprint is a good provider. i have been their customer for 8 years.

    1. sprint is affordable not like those other providers verizon sucks can you hear me now bull#&*@ phone dropped calls and worked like crap so i had to switch to sprint my bills never leave 60 bucks and i use the hell out of my phone

  2. Sprint has always had better pricing than the competition. I currently pay a total of $60/month for TWO lines with 1000 minutes (shared), 500 txt per line, and unlimited “Power Vision” high-speed data service for BOTH phones. I currently use a Palm Centro.

    It is laughable that AT&T continues to play the “better coverage” line, when only Sprint and Verizon work in my parents’ hometown in Indiana. AT&T isn’t really interested in rural customers in the Midwest.

    I’ve had Sprint since 1999 and overall, I’m happy with them.

  3. Same here. I have three lines on Sprint with unlimited data on 2 of them, unlimited text on one of those, and 2000 shared minutes, all for $99/month. Sprint has been good to me, with better data coverage and throughput than Verizon in the areas where I live and work.

  4. AT&T hardly works in Austin. I always laughed at their “fewest dropped calls” line…until they had to drop that line because they figured out it was true.

    While the service with Sprint has been wonderful for me, I was rather unhappy to find that Sprint’s own companies are offering the same type of deal for half – and that’s not including fees. While posters here remark on Sprint’s great $99 deal, Boost Mobile requires no contract and is $50 a month. The savings, when coupled against Sprint’s contract fees, make me wonder if I should switch. I emailed Sprint’s president, Mr. Hesse, and let him know how important these savings are and how unfair it is for Sprint customers. Anyone else feel the same way – visit http://sites.google.com/site/sprintcustomersunite/ for information.
