Sprint’s new “Simply ‘Almost’ Everything®” Plans

July 6th, 2010 Categories: Uncategorized

I got one of the Sprint SERO plans for $30/month a few years ago, and it has met all of my needs except my need for a cooler phone. You see, the “unlimited data” plan packaged with my SERO plan isn’t “unlimited” enough to handle the newer (Android) phones.

I would have to upgrade at least to the “Everything Data 450” plan for $70/month, which includes fewer plan minutes than my current SERO plan. For the past year I’ve decided I could do without, especially if Sprint’s idea of an upgrade is fewer minutes for twice the price.

Since the 4G EVO was released last month my attitude had slowly been changing, and as I was upgrading my phone I noticed this little gem from Sprint’s site: “Because we’ve boosted your data experience with this phone’s amazing services and features, you’ll need our $10/mo. Premium Data add-on plus one of the plans below.” Link.

Of course the “plans listed below” are the variations of Sprint’s aforementioned “Simply Everything®” plans. It’s probably going to take me at least another year before I’m ready to pay extra for a data plan for my “unlimited data plan” plan. Of course by then, it’ll probably be another $10 for a data plan for my premium data plan for my unlimited data plan. It’s almost enough to make me ask myself what it is I keep holding out for with Sprint.
