Sprint As You Go changes monthly plans
Sprint As You Go has changed its prepaid monthly service plans. This relatively new Sprint’s prepaid brand has lowered monthly rate of its top tier $70 service plan to $60 per month and added two new plans, the $45 and the $35 plan. In addition, Sprint As You Go is offering up to $100 off of the phones prices for customers that switch from any other carrier except Sprint’s prepaid brands Boost Mobile, Virgin Mobile and Assurance Wireless.
Sprint As You Go is now offering four prepaid monthly plans, two for feature phones and two for smartphones.
The $60 monthly plan, compatible with smartphones, offers unlimited talk, messaging and data. This plan includes access to LTE for LTE-capable handsets. Also, the $45 smartphone monthly plan includes unlimited talk and messaging only.
The $50 monthly plan, compatible with feature phones, remains the same, unlimited voice, messaging and data while the new $35 feature phone plan includes 500 voice minutes, unlimited messaging and unlimited data.
Sprint As You Go data are truly unlimited data, not throttled or capped. The plans include data roaming on a slower 1xRTT (2G) speeds except the $45 smartphone plan, which doesn’t include data. Data roaming is also restricted to 400 minutes and 100 MB per month. In addition, all Sprint As You Go plans include voice and text roaming.
The bad news is that monthly taxes, fees and Sprint surcharges also apply to monthly rates so therefore, monthly bill is in reality significantly higher.
Due to Sprint’s promotion that takes up to $100 off of phones when customers switch from any other carrier that’s not related to Sprint, customers can get Samsung Galaxy Victory 4G LTE (regular price $99.99) and LG Optimus Elite (regular price $99.99) for free while refurbished iPhone 4 8GB (regular price $199.99) can be purchased for $99.99. In addition, Sprint As You Go is selling Kyocera Kona for $19.99 and Samsung Array for $49.99, but they are not eligible for this promotion. The promotion is good through November 11, 2013.
