Previously, the original SERO plan initially began as a $30 per month option that provided customers with unlimited data, text, picture messaging, and 500 minutes of anytime minutes. However, the plan was only compatible with features phones and select smartphones (which included old school Palm and Windows Mobile smartphones).
By the time webOS, Android, and Windows Phone 7 devices started to crowd the scene, Sprint decided to move the ante by allow existing SERO customers to migrate over to its new $40 per month SERO Premium plan. Retaining all the same features as before, the new plan added things like unlimited Sprint Navigation and unlimited talk to any mobile phone number in the US. For a mere $40 per month, that’s not too shabby when you think about how affordable it as – well, it’s definitely in the ballpark of what we see offered by prepaid carriers. Additionally, customers who wanted to use a 4G smartphone, they would naturally be charged an additional $10 per month for “premium data.”
Now that we know all of that, let’s go back to the iPhone 4S, which isn’t deemed as a 4G device for Sprint. It’s just possible that existing SERO Premium customers will be able to activate the phone with the plan. If that’s the case, we’re sure there are going to be a lot of Sprint customers clamoring for joy – especially if they can retain paying only $40 per month for the service.
We reached out to Sprint regarding the matter, but as of right now, there is no word if it’ll be compatible. Instead, they mention that details will surely come out in the very near future to outline the iPhone 4S.
