Sprint introduces Any Mobile, Anytime

Sprint introduces Any Mobile, Anytime
It started with the Simply Everything plan, which still gives unlimited calling and just about everything else for a flat $99.99 a month.  Then it was several network tests that showed Sprint has some seriously good 3G.  Sprint continued the onslaught with exclusive phones that are actually worthwhile in the form of the Pre and upcoming Hero.  Now Big Yellow has fired another shot across the bow of Verizon and AT&T with their introduction of Any Mobile, Anytime.  Simply put, you can call any cellular number for free, no matter the network.  That's over 250 million numbers; suddenly Verizon's 80 million IN network just became insignificant and AT&T's A-List seems too little, too late.  Two catches: you have to be on an Everything Data plan (or a Business Essentials with messaging and data) and it doesn't apply when roaming, but given that the Everything plans were already hands-down the best value in wireless we'll take some icing on the cake at no extra charge!  The feature is available immediately to new customers and existing customers switching to an Everything Data plan.  For those of you alread on those plans no need to do anything, the feature will be auto-added when your next bill cycle starts.

no, they're the lowest cost, price and value are 2 completely different things and they are def not the best value.

Well Sprint doesnt have the lowest cost, that goes to Cricket and MetroPCS. As far as value they do top currently with their 3G speeds, coverage, improved customer services and overall bang for your buck. I think you should research but being someones fanboy does not allow you to be unbiased.

I was speaking of the lowest cost of the 3 largest cell phone providers. And let's do some research then. For the past 2 years they have had the highest disconnect rates out of all 3 companies, 4 if you count tmobile. Yet they do have the lowest cost. That alone should say something. They have the worse rated cust service out there. I mean they told people they can't be customers anymore cause they called into cust care too much. They have the highest number of dropped calls and as for the fastest 3g, verizon was actually ranked the highest in that with 3rd party tests. Sprint is also going to a completely different 4g network than verizon and att which when is all said and done will be a lot slower than verizon and att. They did this so they can say they were the first to come out with 4g. A short fix that will cause long term issues. Maybe you should do your research before spouting out like that and call people fan boys. Especially since everything I said was not in favor of one specific company just the truth.

proof to these claims? I havent seen articles about dropped calls since At&t got called out on false claims. Sprint dropped call rates includes the fact that they still provide service on the iden network. As far as customer service ratings, they've made major adjustments in the previous years, and as far as asking people to Leave, you've never been/seen someone kicked out of a store/shopping mall for causing trouble? As far as 4G Im not sure if your aware of what kind of speeds WiMax can handle. Not to mention it will provide more than just cellular phones with service, seeing WiMax could run in a whole catalog of digital devices for internet access on them for very low cost. Price + Coverage = Wireless Value .

LMAO, and I was called a fanboy. The cust service was taken from only a few months ago. The dropped calls have been posted multiple place, not just att and last time I did check iden is still sprints network. And yes there has been estimations about wimax speed and lte speeds by all companies. And they weren't being rude or nasty, that were canceled cause they called too many times! completely different. And last time I checked LTE does the same thing you mentioned wimax doing. The difference..... LTE is faster and better coverage. Look at the results. Everything you said just shows what a fanboy really is. You said then is no proof of the dropped calls and then 2 seconds later you said it was due to iden. And even so what about the disc rate. That right there alone is proof enough they are not the best value cause if they were they would have the lowest disc rate. NOT THE HIGHEST.

Whoa, whoa, whoa, disconnecting people because they called in too much made them awesome in my eyes. That was the best move they could've made, I mean, they're bleeding money at this point. Alltel was bleeding money, and this is Sprint's attempt to be such a force in the wireless industry that someone will have to buy them out, because they're definitely not making money off all this. If you try arguing that Alltel wasn't losing money, save your breath and do some research, because they were close to going bankrupt. With Sprint making this move, they're following the same path until someone merges with them or buys them out, because you can't give this many features and still make a profit and stay above water... Unless they're paying their employees less than minimum wage. At this point, you can't say that they're not the best value in the industry, but is that a good business move? No.

A force in the wireless industry? Isn't that what the Simply Everything plan was supposed to make them? As for those third party surveys everybody is questioning, they can be found in the June issue of Consumer Reports ( the third quarter CR issue is due out later ). I see this as one last-ditch effort for Sprint to save the Titanic. They admitted that iDen does them more harm than good. Then they decided to move the WiMax 4G network instead of LTE. Clearwire is the only other communication company in line with WiMax. VZW, AT&T, T-Mo, Japan, Western Europe?...They're all moving to LTE. There's gotta be something wrong with this picture Sprint. As for Alltel losing money, it was their My Circle feature that did them in. Too much free calling and nothing to charge for. It may sound like the others are all about money but that's business. You don't stay in the game giving everything away for free. You simply won't last long. Ask Amp'd mobile ( and soon Sprint ). Alltel HAD to sell out. Verizon can afford to do that because they have other ways to charge people but at the same time save them money by reducing overages with putting people on the right plans ( hence the mandatory data plans on certain phones ). T-Mo has really affordable plans which benefit those living in or around major cities. AT&T's BB Bold, iPhone, and other device keep them afloat as well, not to mention, it's AT&T's 3G network that is actually the FASTEST in the market right now. Sprint is sinking .... FAST. And by the way, did anybody bother to pay attention to this report? The Unlimited Calling plan does work in Sprint's roaming area. Hmmmm, let me see .... over 60% of Sprint's coverage is what?......... that's right.... ROAMING!!! All you fanboys crawled from outta nowhere like roaches when the lights go off, when Sprint announced their Simply Everything plan some time ago. They were supposed to be back in the game then, right??? Wrong!!! They still lost thousands of customers and millions of dollars, and you all STILL made excuses for why that happened. But stick around .... I want to see the third quarter reports when they are released some time in late October. We will see what this new idea will do for them.

Well good for sprint... let's see if they can live up to their word. But the simply everything plan 99.99 wasn't enough to entice people, now the simply everything unlimited to anyone 99.99 may win some over.

Actually it doesnt have to be a simply everything plan, everything data plan. With this you can pretty much turn a 69.99 450 everything data to a simply everything because of it.

COMMON ALL YOU VERIZON HATERS LETS HEAR IT!!! You have to on a data plan, hmmm weird concept for all you effin yahoo's griping about, Verizon just another way to screw you and Verizon another way to have data, How about Verizon gave you Freinds and family free PLUS 87 Million FOR FREE NO UNLI DATA PLAN REQUIRED!!! Try again Sprint, or should I say JOG...and the other thing Phone Arena...Its a little obvious that you are advertising Sprint when you use a sales pitch in your article..When VZW comes up with ways for customers to save all you do is get you grubby little hands over talking crap about the carrier...How about phones that require Data...Does that not make more sense than PLANS THAT REQUIRE DATA...CmonThis article is bull and I cant wait to see how many IDIOTS rip in to me for what im posting no one with a brain can tell me this is better than Verizon. And nice job with you scewed and rigged posting Phone Arena REAL PROFESSIONAL....
