Sprint's new $80 a month plan includes unlimited service and cost of equipment

Sprint's new $80 a month plan includes unlimited service and cost of equipment
Tuesday morning, Sprint announced a new $80 monthly unlimited talk, text and data plan called "All-in." $60 of the monthly charge takes care of the talk, text and data, and the remaining $20 covers the cost to lease an Apple iPhone 6 or the Samsung Galaxy S6. The nation's third largest carrier, Sprint has managed to stave off a hard-charging T-Mobile, whose CEO has been focused on surpassing Sprint in the standings.

Sprint's "All-in" plan debuts today and includes a one-time $36 activation fee. Sprint chief marketing officer Kevin Crull notes that "All-in" is exactly where the industry is heading. "The natural evolution of the industry is to advertise both combined," said Crull. "(Take the) cost of the device and the rate plan, put them together and tell the customer what's the rate all in."
 
Sprint has spent heavily with its current promotions, including one that cuts Verizon and AT&T customers' monthly bill in half. For "All-in," the mobile operator will use soccer star David Beckham to promote it. Sprint CEO Marcelo Claure says that there will be no surprises for Sprint customers with "All-in.".

#1. This plan used to be $70 with a "new iPhone for life" every 2 years. #2. I've been missing calls and texts on the 3rd floor of my house for the last 10 years on Sprint. I live in the middle of USA's 3rd largest city, a few hundred yards away from Route 95. #3. All these new plans/leases are out to RAPE American customers. FAIL If the Note 5 retains the removable battery and SD, or if the LG G4 PRO gets a fingerprint scanner, I will be buying one for Verizon and leaving Sprint for good.

I feel you man. Sprint is absolutely terrible. Don't drink the "unlimited" Kool aid.

I have a ZTE Force riding on Sprints LTE network. Actually it's on FreedomPop, which is a Sprint MVNO. I have their free monthly plan with 200 minutes, 500 texts and 500MB of data. Honestly Sprints network is worth what I pay for it, free. Right in the middle of Bellevue WA which if you guys are unfamiliar is right next to Microsoft and T-Mobiles main headquarters, not to mention Verizon's, Sprint's, LGs, Samsung's, HTCs, and Alcatels United States corporate offices. Sprints service is totally crap. Tons of places with 0 bars of LTE, and maybe 1-2 bars of EVDO connection around here... Totally pathetic for 2015...

I resent the CEO of an AMERICAN company being some south american with a thick accent. Another reason I think Sprint is ghetto and why I'll be returning to Verizon.

How is this any different than the same $80 plan that's been going on for awhile?

Wow, you're racist AND a retard. And here I just thought you were a retard. Actually, that's insulting to actual retards. Even they say the same crap over and over again less than you. Way to add on to your dumb spammy crusade with a racist comment that reveals even more of your putrid colors! I hope a dark skinned, south American transsexual in full makeup with an unintelligible accent stomps on your head and puts you out of your idiotic misery. :)

"Usage Limitations: To improve data experience for the majority of users, throughput may be limited, varied or reduced on the network. Streaming video speeds will be limited to 600Kbps at all times, which may impact quality." Unlimited slowed down on an already slow network. Good luck watching HD videos or Netflix on your unlimited data plan. Lol

I've been with sprint for 10 years and while the data is slow on certain devices since I've had the One M8, which is a Spark device I can't say data is slow anymore. I've been averaging between 20 to 50mbs without being throttled. I just hate that Sprint Spark doesnt let you talk and browse like my old One M7 did.

It's not a new plan, it's just a different way of marketing the $60 unlimited plan since the $50 plan is now axed.
