The plan offers one line of service for $55 which includes unlimited talk, text and 1GB of data. For each person that joins the group, the price drops by $5 a month with a maximum discount of $30 a line. That means a group of 7 can get unlimited talk, text and 1GB of data for just $25 a month. Want unlimited data? Add $20 per line for unlimited talk, text and data, and Sprint will also let you update to a new phone once a year.
To participate in the plan, the members must each purchase an eligible phone and pay it off in 24 monthly payments, or reactivate a previously purchased Sprint phone. Those existing customers with a subsidized phone must pay an additional $15 a month per line until they are eligible for an upgrade. For a limited time, Sprint is waiving this fee. Existing accounts cannot be merged into a new Framily plan unless the accounts are both owned by the same person. New customers using the plan will be given a Framily ID, which they can use to invite new members.
According to Sprint, its Framily plan with a single member ($55 per month) or at maximum savings ($25 per month), offers a great discount compared to the other carriers. While T-Mobile's Simple Choice plan is $50 a month, it includes just 500MB of data or half of what Sprint's plan offer. AT&T's Mobile Share Value with a similar 1GB of data is $70 each month while a Verizon Share Everything customer with 1GB of data is paying $90 monthly.
