Sprint Better Choice Plans
With Sprint Better Choice Plans, customers get unlimited talk and text while on the Sprint Network. They simply choose the amount of sharable data and the number of lines needed for their family. It’s that easy. When customers reach their monthly data allotment, they will get unlimited data at 2G speeds, so they never have to worry about overages.2 Or, they can choose the automatic data buy-up option of $15 per GB of data, so they will never run out of high-speed data.
Sprint Better Choice Plans include Sprint Global Roaming, free unlimited international texting from the U.S. to more than 180 countries, and a mobile hotspot (draws from data allowance).
“With Sprint Better Choice Plans, we’ve truly simplified our wireless data share plans,” said Marcelo Claure, Sprint CEO. “Customers can choose the amount of data they want from extra small to extra, extra large, and then they can add the number of desired additional lines. This is just another example of what millions of new customers are telling us – Sprint offers the best value and overall experience compared to the competition.”
More Data than Verizon, Better Value
Sprint offers customers more data than Verizon for a better value. For Verizon customers who want to switch, Sprint will cover switching fees up to $650 per line.3
No one has a better price for unlimited plans including talk, text and high-speed data among all national carriers.4 For a limited time, families can get four lines of talk, text and unlimited data for $37.50 per line.5
