OVERLAND PARK, Kan., Dec 10, 2009 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- Sprint (NYSE:S) is giving families the gift of value this season with one of the industry's most affordable family plans and the coolest phones on America's most dependable 3G network.

Sprint family plans help customers save

For just $42.50 per person, Sprint Everything Data Family plans with Any Mobile, AnytimeTM give each member of a family of four an unlimited mobile experience with unlimited messaging, data and mobile-to-mobile calling. Any Mobile, Anytime removes the barriers of restrictive "calling circles," giving customers unlimited calling to and from ANY wireless phone in the United States, regardless of carrier, at no additional charge. In the December issue of Kiplinger's Personal Finance Magazine, Any Mobile, Anytime earned Sprint recognition for the best cell phone plan.

And with Sprint Everything Data Family plans, customers get unlimited nationwide texting, e-mail, Web browsing and exclusive data services, such as Sprint Navigation, NFL Mobile Live and NASCAR Sprint Cup Mobile, included at no additional charge. These plans also automatically enroll customers in the Sprint Premier loyalty program, which provides annual device upgrades, discounted accessories and other benefits that will warm customers' hearts this holiday season.

Value like this makes Sprint family plans a great way for families to stick to their budget this holiday season by spending less on their wireless bill. Plus, an Everything Data Family plan with Any Mobile, Anytime means they won't have to worry about using anytime minutes to offer holiday wishes to other wireless users. Everything Data Family plans start at just $129.99 per month for two lines (excluding taxes and surcharges). Additional lines are just $19.99 per month per line. Existing Sprint customers can switch Sprint plans at any time without extending their contract. New line activations require a two-year service agreement.
