The introduction of the “iPhone 6” is less than three weeks away. And it’s a good time to be a wireless customer.
After the failed merger attempt with T-Mobile, Sprint is coming out firing, offering a new $60 per month plan with unlimited talk, text, and data. That’s $20 less than T-Mobile’s similar offering. Verizon and AT&T don’t even offer unlimited plans.
Both new and existing Sprint customers can take advantage of the plan starting tomorrow, Friday, Aug. 22.
To qualify, you’ll need to bring your own compatible device, pay full retail price for a handset, or use Sprint’s Easy Pay program, which splits the cost of a phone into monthly installments.
Sprint also recently launched a family plan that gives 20GB of data for up to 10 lines for $100 per month.
T-Mobile isn’t standing pat, either. The carrier recently announced a new program that pays current T-Mobile users to switch a friend over.
Both will receive unlimited data free for a year. T-Mobile users who already have unlimited data will receive a $10 per month credit.
