Sprint wants you to know you can save more money with them
While Verizon and AT&T both announced their new pricing on unlimited calling plans, Sprint decided to issue a Press Release of their own, though it doesn't say anything new in the terms of calling plans. In fact, all it says (in a nutshell) is that Sprint will still cost you less annually than Verizon and AT&T, stating that Sprint's Everything Data plan (with 450, 700, or unlimited minutes) offers a savings of $240 a year when compared to Verizon's new Nationwide Talk & Text plan plus unlimited data package. As well as saying family's can save $600 a year on Sprint's Everything Data Family plans (1500 min) over Verizon's Nationwide Talk & Text family share plans plus unlimited data package. We'll let you guys figure out the math, but historically Verizon and AT&T have charged more for their service than Sprint and T-Mobile.

Well with sprints advertising, i am sure no one will actually realize this.... Verizon and Apple know what they are doing when it comes to advertising. Sprint's advertising sucks, their plans and coverage are awesome and they are the first network with 4G, and yet I am sure a good portion of the cell phone population doesn't know how much they could save on Sprint. Sprint's advertising SUCKS!! Not to mention they still havent announced a new phone that could compete wit the droid, nexus, iPhone, or hd2. I think Sprint thinks the Pre is a god phone, when its not that great. They need to work on advertising and new phones if they want to attract costumers, or they are gonna continue to lose them

Your right, their advertising does leave much to be desired. Too bad cause their network is actually very good, and their calling plans are way better than Verizon or stupid ass AT&T. If only they had nice phones, I left Sprint when my contract was up for this reason, no appealing phones, and their very slow to come out with new ones.

The Nexus is on an immature carrier for now and the HD2 isn't out yet. The Pre does compete with the iphone and Droid, so does the Moment. The year is going into it's 3rd week, you all act as if no more phones will ever come to Sprint. Sprint needs to start thier own campaign, "there's a cost for that", that targets all the carriers

I think sprint has an ace up it's sleeve for this year. They need more phones forget that exclusive crap and they will just be waitn they need the nexus one and htc hd2 those are two phones I like so far this year that has a 1gz snapdragon processor. They need to forget the iphone killer crap and move on. I love android and palms webOS I want to see more phones using them on sprint.

Sprint puts out phones before the others lets see.. Well lets get this out of the way AT&T they only have one phone the Iphone for three years (Iphone on cingular) when it goes they have nothing.. Next T-Mo network sucks no mater what phone they have it wont work.. then VZN in the past year they had the Bold a big BB and the storm 1&2 no one cares.. sprint had an Android (Hero) before the droid (android) software upgrades and phone features after is always fair to do better then the competition just like the Pre Plus late, after (oh ours is better than yours) 7 months later. 4G Sprint Has now they will have the first 4G phones and already devices that work on 4G these sites never really comment on that do they Fanboys. "4G Sprint has a map for that"

Good that you have a carrier/phone that works for you. Us Sprint subs are happy with the faster more dependable network at cheaper price.
