Sprint announces new plan that will save you 50% on your AT&T, Verizon, or T-Mobile bill

Yesterday, we told that you that Sprint had teased a huge announcement for today, one that "the other carriers are not going to like." The announcement has been made, and we're not sure how mad the other carriers are going to be. Sprint has introduced a new plan that will save T-Mobile, Verizon and AT&T customers 50% of their current bill if they switch to Sprint.

There are some caveats. Not every Verizon, T-Mobile or AT&T plan is covered by the promotion, and the 50% rate is good through 2018. That means that you might be looking for a new carrier again in just a few years. If your current plan qualifies, and you don't mind seeing your bill rise in price in 2018, you might want to consider making the switch if you are satisfied with the Sprint network.

To sign up, all you need to do is bring your current Verizon, T-Mobile or AT&T bill to a Sprint location. Each line you switch will also be eligible for up to $650 to cover your ETF, but you will have to trade-in your current phone to receive this gift card. We suggest reading the fine print. It takes up about one-thir

The new plan starts on November 20th. Sprint's previous 50% plan expired this past March, and didn't include T-Mobile.

Is this the same as Sprint's last "save 50%" deal, where you only really saved 10-15%?

"if they switch to Sprint" artificial pricing and screwing their loyal customers doesn't make anyone mad, just shows how sad you guys are

I never quite understood this idea. Their loyal customers feel screwed while the new customers feel like they're getting a deal. This CEO does not know how to build customer loyalty.

Sprint could do so much better if only they were GSM...

Would be nice if we had any coverage. Faster and more reliable than nothing is still nothing.

"Our network is faster and more reliable than ever before." I stopped there.

And for you CURRENT Sprint customers...? You go sit in the corner and think about what you did. Or rather what you didn't do. Switch years ago.

Sprints Network is the worst in the country, literally.

No thanks. "Activ. Fee: $36/line" "Plans exclude unlimited music and video streaming, data carryover, tethering and cloud options that other carrier plans may offer." "Sprint may terminate service if off-network roaming usage in a month exceeds: (1) 800 min. or a majority of min.; or (2) 100MB or a majority of KB." (so no Canada and Mexico I take it?) I wonder if they even really give you 10Gb per line, it does say data not shared, whatever that means.

I might be wrong but isn't this what they did last year? "cut your bill in half" Only difference was T-mobile wasn't included.

the previous offer had a lot less catches to it.

Sounds fair. 50% of the price for 50% of the coverage. Great for those that live where it works and don't go places it won't.

Yeah you avoid certain areas with Sprint, like outside. Sprint sucks.

Read the small print.... Sprint is a joke

Agreed. After reading the fine print, it would be silly for a T-Mobile customer to switch, unless that person uses less than a gig a month of data, and doesn't stream anything.

Despite T-Mobile's coverage is as expansive as Sprint's supposedly is I find T-Mobile to be more reliable even in Fringe areas compared to Sprint in a fully covered area.

I am on TM and i stream a lot of music. I consumed 14gbs so far yet TM has only charged me 4gbs out of my 10gb plan.

categorically untrue: Often consumers pay for one thing and get less than what they pay for - this is true for pretty much any service or product offered.

Often American consumers think they're special snowflakes. They want to pay the lowest amount, get treated like they paid top dollar and don't think they should be blamed for carelessness. Remember shrieking Apple store lady? That.

Yes that is true. Years ago I had Sprint service and it sucked so bad I had to use an Airaive in my house to make and receive calls. My data speeds were around 300kbs. They wanted to charge me $100 for the unit and $10 a month to use it. They then waved the fees when I told them why I had to pay that to use my phone when I'm paying almost $90 a month ($69.99 + $10 smart phone fee+ taxes for service). I then went to Tmobile and the phone worked well to make calls in my home. Data speeds were only 4mbs back then. A few years later with LTE I'm flying at 30+mbs speeds. Unlimited everything with 7gigs of tethering for $55 out the door including taxes. Now Sprint saying they can cut my bill in half? I doubt it. F You Sprint.
