OVERLAND PARK, Kan. (BUSINESS WIRE), September 18, 2014 - The innovative Samsung Galaxy Note® 4 arrives at Sprint on Friday, Oct. 17, with the benefits of the high-speed data capabilities of Sprint Spark™ and the best rate plan options of any national carrier for individuals, couples and families.
Preorders for Galaxy Note 4 begin Friday, Sept. 26, at www.sprint.com/galaxynote4. Galaxy Note 4 will be available beginning Friday, Oct. 17, in all Sprint sales channels, including Sprint Stores, Business Sales, Web Sales and Telesales at 1-800-SPRINT1.
With Sprint Easy PaySM, well-qualified buyers can purchase Galaxy Note 4 with $0 down (plus tax) and 24 monthly payments of $30 (SRP: $720; excluding taxes; service plan required).
The Sprint $60 Unlimited Plan1 beats all national carriers, providing significant savings over competitor plans. The Sprint $60 Unlimited Plan saves customers $20 a month compared to T-Mobile's $80 unlimited plan2. AT&T and Verizon Wireless don't even offer unlimited data plans. With the Sprint $60 Unlimited Plan, consumers can talk, text and use data, knowing that their market-leading plan is one low price of $60 without surprising overage charges. (All prices exclude taxes and surcharges.)
Sprint also extended its limited-time offer for the Sprint Family Share Pack. A family with up to 10 lines, can get 20GB of shared data and unlimited talk and text for only $100 a month through 2015.3 For a family of four, that’s a savings of $60 per month versus AT&T’s and Verizon’s current pricing through 2015; double the data of AT&T and Verizon; and double the high-speed data of T-Mobile.
“Sprint is offering Samsung Galaxy Note 4 with some of the best pricing options for one- and two- line accounts with the Sprint $60 Unlimited Plan. Customers can also get double the high-speed data and up to $60 a month savings for families with the Sprint Family Share Pack,” said David Owens, senior vice president-Product Development, Sprint. “Sprint Spark unlocks powerful capabilities of Galaxy Note 4 and the beauty of its dynamic display, and these innovative features shouldn’t be limited by expensive data plans.”
