Sprint is spicing things up by upgrading its $50 unlimited data plan


In an effort to entice more customers, Sprint has decided to upgrade its already lucrative unlimited plan.

If you're not aware of the carrier's offer, let us summarize: Until March 31st, customers that switch at least one line to Sprint can get unlimited talk, text and data for 50$ a month. Adding a second line will run you $90 total for both, whereas the third and fourth lines come for free, effectively slashing the cost for a group of four to $22,50 per person.

The new and improved “Unlimited HD” plan adds free HD streaming and a 10 GB mobile hotspot per line. Customers can even trade-in certain handsets in order to get a free lease of the iPhone 7 for 18 months.

This may sound like a killer deal, but as with most of these offers, there are certain caveats found in the fine print. After March 31, 2018, you'll have to pay $60 per month for the first line, the same $40 for line two, and the once free lines 3 and 4 will come at $30/month each. The offer is available only for new customers, and it is required for you to subscribe for Sprint's AutoPay service. 

As for the free iPhone lease, you'd have to trade in one of the following devices in order to qualify: iPhone 7, iPhone 7 Plus, iPhone 6s, iPhone 6s Plus, Samsung GS7, GS7 edge, GS6, GS6 edge, Note 5, LG V20, G5, Moto Droid 2.

Despite the aforementioned conditions, Sprint's deal is still pretty decent, If you're looking to switch carriers and get decent Sprint service where you live, this unlimited plan is one of the most affordable options one can currently find in the US.

I back up your statement, in that you don't know me. I've had Sprint for about 20 years now, and coverage has always been very good. Customer service used to suck really bad, but in the past 10 years, it's been fine. The problem with this kind of anecdotal evidence is that coverage is different everywhere for every carrier. Just because it's been great for me in Texas, this does not necessarily apply anywhere else. And of course, "everyone I know that has sprint..." likely refers to a bunch of people in one particular geographical location.

Thats so true. But im still with them 20 plus years later. Im grandfathered in on the everything data with free mobile to mobile 1500 plan for 2lines for 110 a month with insurance and employee discount. So no need for me to change my plan.

I dislike their tactic of raising the price of the plan after a year-ish. It's a lot like cable companies raising their rates yearly. Not only is Sprint terrible, their contract terms are ass as well...Good thing we have choices
