Sprint's new family plan offers four lines with 40GB of shared data for $120 per month

In its basic form, Sprint's new family plan is priced at $100 per month and includes four lines with unlimited talk and text, as well as a bucket of 10GB high-speed data that's to be shared between the four lines. If you need more data, Sprint will upgrade the shared data bucket to 40GB of high-speed data for $120 per month. On top of this, Sprint will also discard the per-line data access charge, but only as long as you continue to pay for your new family plan.
Sprint claims that its new family plan is much more affordable than similar plans from other major carriers in the United States, and it looks like this affirmation actually holds water. Over at Verizon, four lines with unlimited talk and text and a 10GB data bucket costs $140 per month, and the same plan at AT&T will set you back $160 per month. T-Mobile's currently offering four lines with unlimited talk and text and 10GB of data per line for $120 per month.
Like with all of its plans, Sprint is also offering to pay off your contract with your old carrier, as well as your old handset, but only if you're willing to part with your on-contract smartphone, and only if the device is in good working condition.
What do you guys think of Sprint's new family plan? Aren't you a bit pissed that switchers are the ones getting all the really good plans and deals?

Plus, the monthly price of the phones. It will be over $200 a month.

Honestly, it depends on your location. Here in atlanta for example, sprint service is amazing.

I've been with Sprint ever since I had my first cell phone (around 15 years now) and they've been good to me, but I want to be on the best network when I get my new phone (probably the Note 5) in the next month so Verizon: here I come!

Before you come over to Verizon, go a head and chop off your left arm and right leg. Doing it now will save you the time and pain of doing it later when you pay your cellular bill....

Sprint service isn't even worth paying for. I had them for 11 years with horrible coverage and data speeds. I finally left them for AT&T and couldn't be happier. I swore I'd never pay for Sprint service again. Then I bought a $25 FreedomPop ZTE Force and get free service with them. So I get to experience the crap for free. There's still huge swaths of areas that are 3G only in Bellevue WA where I work.

I hate when carriers make customers switch just to get the better price. Sprint isn't helping here. Cox and Centurylink do this game all the time. For example, at Centurylink $30 a month for the fastest speeds offered in your area but after a year or two the price gets jacked up twice or three times as much. So you want to save money and the only way to do that is go to Cox. Then the same thing happens with them. So just to get the best price, you always have to switch. Too much work. They need one set price and that's it. Or charge a lot in the beginning and lower the price over time for their loyal customers.
