Sprint launches a $99.99 ‘Simply Everything’ plan
If you are already an existing Sprint customer, you can switch to the Simply Everything plan without extending your current contract either by contacting Sprint customer service or by stopping by at any participating Sprint store. New customers will require a two-year contract.
If you subscribe your whole family to the Simply Everything plan, Sprint will include an incremental $5 discount for each incremental line, up to five lines on the same bill.
Also today, Sprint announced a $29.5 billion loss for Q4 ($10.36 per share), which included most of the remaining value of its 2005 purchase of Nextel Communications (a year ago the company earned $261 million). The continued loss of customers probably forced the company to announced today’s $99.99 Simply Everything plan.

I seriously doubt it will help sales. We're gonna be swamped with people wanting to change their plan mid month, then next month swamped with people pissed about Prorated charges.
4. Sprint Rep (unregistered)
I really need this plan because I am a pretty good salesman and I arlready have people ready to get Sprint if we offered something this good.
5. IndirecSRep (unregistered)
Definatly gonna help but good thing we can wave act fees and credit proration charges will help me sell a ton more

Sprint needs to focus on improving customer service and fix the never-ending network problems that are both driving customers away in droves. People are GLADLY paying ETF's to get away from Sprint because of the extremely poor experience they have had. A flashy new calling plan won't keep customers. I predict the number of Sprint port-in activations I receive here at VZW will not drop off whatsoever.

The continued loss of customers probably forced the company to announced today’s $99.99 Simply Everything plan.-Well spoken.

I'm not having any problems at all and customer service may be a problem but the customers can always talk to the people that sold their phone and they'll take care of it. 45 Acts a month and no ETFs in over a year im having no problems.
9. Sprint Rep (unregistered)
I hadn't had any ETF's thats crazy but Sprint does have customer service problems where they out-source your call to Asia which you just have to know the right sprint number to call for help and the in store Sales Reps are going to be a whole lot more helpful anyways. On top of act fee waivers virtual every company that owns anything gets a discount up to 30% off every bill

I AGREE 100%. UNLIMITED PLANS HAVENT IMPROVED SALES FOR ANYONE VERY MUCH THUS FAR AND I DONT EXPECT IT WILL VERY MUCH. BUT SPRINT DEF HAS WORK TO DO WITH THEIR NETWORK AND CUST SERVICE.
11. Sprintz Stunna (unregistered)
Yeah the unlimited plan wont help to much, most of the customers are to cheap. I think we fix up the CS and we're good to go. Also marketing needs double what they're doing.
12. celltower (unregistered)
What network problems are you talking about?
13. DeeBee (unregistered)
Lol What a retard...almost a month after they announced the unlimited plan for 119.99 $ now get smacked by others and they are forced to go with 99.99... RETARDS
14. blah (unregistered)
The 119 was a test in the market to see how well it would respond. Dur
15. Brandon (unregistered)
Do any of you understand that simplifying your calling plans will tremendously improve cs?
16. VZW Employee (unregistered)
Wow $99 is a awesome price for unlimited voice, data, text, e-mail, Web-surfing, Sprint TV, Sprint Music, GPS Navigation, Direct Connect and Group Connect for one flat monthly fee. Well, that's only if the customer doesn't have any problems with the network. That price would be awesome if it was on "America's Most Reliable Network".

To the reps that are whining about complicated plans...dont blame the customers, it's sprint thats offer all the complicated billing stuff. Make the plan $50 for all of it. You will get overloaded with customers. It will simplify the billing and the reps will quit whining. It will get competive just like dialup internet did in the late 90's. It started by the minute, then went to blocks of minutes, finally to a flate rate.

Sprint has decent plans, with earlier nights, incoming free, etc. Their Customer Service SUCKS and TOO MANY BILLING ERRORS! Dont Low Ball the INDUSTRY, work on getting Non Ghetto Employees
19. DeeMan (unregistered)
The "Non Ghetto Employees" comment was downright unneccesary and IGNORANT. But in America, what else do you expect? Anyways, I see a lot comments on how this will provide sales boosts for Sprint employees. I think it's a case of "too little, too late". 29.5 billion dollars?? 29.5 BILLION AMERICAN DOLLARS??? I am no accountant but I don't need to be one to realize that is ONE HELL OF A HIT for ANY company to withstand....even for a full year, let alone a quarter. 29.5 billion??? That is beyond comprehension folks. Hell, Microsoft couldn't even withstand that kind of blow, so how is a second rate cell company going to? Most of Sprint's network is roaming anyways ... and to me, THAT was the REAL problem. But, to all I wish success. If Sprint ever recovers from a loss like that, I would like to speak to their CFO. He could manage my 401k ANY TIME if they bounce back from this. 29.5 billion dollars and you Sprint employees are actually OPTIMISTIC about things??? Aye carumba !!!!!

It's too little too late for Sprint. I think personally they will only rattle the industry with competitive pricing before they finally tank.
