Sprint's new plan gives you an Apple iPhone, Apple iPad and unlimited service for $100 a month

Sprint's new plan gives you an Apple iPhone, Apple iPad and unlimited service for $100 a month
Back in October, Sprint updated its iPhone for Life plan. For as low as $80 a month, you lease an Apple iPhone 6 for two years and receive a plan with unlimited talk, text and data. You could decide to go with the 64GB iPhone 6 ($85 a month) or the 128GB version ($90 a month). And if you want the Apple iPhone 6 Plus phablet instead, pricing runs from $85 a month for the 16GB version to $95 a month for the 128GB unit. After two years, your lease is up and you have to return the phone.

Now, Sprint has a new plan for iOS fans. For $100 a month, you get an Apple iPhone 6, an Apple iPad mini 3, unlimited talk, text and data on the phone and 2GB of data for the tablet. If you worked it out separately, leasing a 16GB iPhone 6 with unlimited data would run you $70 a month. Leasing the iPad mini 3 with 2GB of data would cost you $47 monthly. Together, it would cost you $117 a month, meaning that Sprint's plan saves you $17 monthly or 15%

While leasing the devices means that you need to treat them with kid gloves, it also means that you will eligible to receive the latest versions of the iPhone and iPad mini when the two year leases expire.

What is this country coming to? We've gone from buying phones on credit to leasing them?

Some of us Americans are just plain stupid with our money.

Still not worth it considering you're essentially paying for something you can't even keep on a network that has more issues than AOL ever did.

LOL. Sprints service is atrocious. I carpool with a coworker who has a Sprint GS5. He streams music using his phone on the way to work. You wouldn't believe how many times the music stops to buffer. We drive up I-405 near Seattle, it's one of our three main Interstates in the whole Seattle region and it's blanketed with 3G only. Not even worth paying for, I considered picking up a Freedom Pop phone as a toy and decided that it's not really worth the cost of the handset even with their free minutes and texts....

Maps show sprint spark all over that area..Should have a fast good LTE connection. There likely is something wrong with the phone.. Maybe wrong sim card or network setting.

Nothing new, Doakie is forever complaining about the OLD Sprint. Obviously he hasn't tried Sprint in an upgraded market, let alone a Spark market because the service just works, and it works well. I use both Verizon (personal) and Sprint (work).

Hard to believe I was just in Seattle and it is blanketed with Sprint Spark triband LTE. Could there be a spot where you dropped to 3G, sure, but you said your coworker has a GS5 which is a triband Spark device so it's definitely not 3G only, LTE works great in my experience. I use and iPhone 6 from work, maybe it's his phone.

Don't be fooled people, they're giving these sweet deals to try and make up for their horrible network and its not worth it.

$2400 + taxes and fees isn't a good deal

Too bad the network speed is lacking. and I hope there not throttling there unlimited data. Tracfone just got fined for doing that.
