Rumor: new plans from Sprint will save you money for each friend you team up with

Sprint new plans
According to an anonymous insider familiar with the carrier's plans, Sprint is to launch a new "Framily" plan in the near future. Yup, that's exactly how the service is going to be called, according to the source. What makes this new plan interesting is that it will let a subscriber share their account ID with their buddies – up to ten of them, to be more specific. And the more friends who are on Sprint are added to the group, the more money the subscriber will save from their monthly bill. Each of the people one shares an ID with will be billed individually, the source notes. In other words, it looks like only the ID's original owner will be getting the discount.

The Sprint Framily plans will cost as low as $55 per month for each line. That would get you 1GB of data along with unlimited texts and minutes. 3GB per month would cost $10 more and unlimited data will cost $75. Add a buddy, however, and you'll be paying $5 less. Share your account ID with 10 other people and you'll be getting unlimited data for $25 monthly. Not bad, huh?

Interestingly, there will be no two-year contracts and no device subsidies offered with Sprint's Framily plans. Therefore, anyone wanting to take advantage of the deal will have to pay a phone's full retail price.

Of course, we should not forget that all of the above exists in the realm of rumors – the details leaked by the tipster may be inaccurate or incomplete. But if this Framily plan does go live one day, would anyone of you, guys, be interested in signing up? Let us know in the comments!
