In a news release published today, Sprint announced that 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. This plan will be available to new and existing customers beginning on February 29th marketed as the “Simply Everything(SM)” Plan.
Sprint’s freshman CEO Dan Hesse is quoted as stating, “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.”
No other carrier, for $99.99, is offering what combined internet, voice, and multimedia services at that price. This plan is available to customers on Sprint customers on either the CDMA or iDEN networks. Current customers can upgrade to the Simply Everything plan without extending their current contract. As always, a new line activation will require a two-year agreement.
If you are interested on the family level, Simply Everything(SM) will offer an incremental $5 discount for each line up to 5 lines on the same bill e.g. two line would amount to $194.98 ($99.99 + 94.99). This is also one of the shinning differences between carriers which can offer tremendous savings the more lines a customer adds.
