Service is excellent in my area and usually get a pretty good 4G signal.
Same type of plan with other companies would cost me a lot more.
This is the best description I've seen and most accurate.
I pay approximately $185 (including a corporate discount) for 3 lines. Same 1500 minute plan (landlines), but I also have insurance $8 for 2 phones.
For the people that are doubting the "unlimited" calling on the $69.99 plan (+$10 for smartphones), it actually is unlimited for mobile-to-mobile calls:
This is the formal description:
Any Mobile, AnytimeTM
Unlimited domestic calls from the Sprint network to and from ANY U.S. mobile phone regardless of carrier. Any network, any time.
What you can do with it
Forget about restrictive calling circles.
Call any mobile, anytime while on the Sprint Network
Access to over 250 million U.S. mobile phones nationwide
Applies when directly dialing/receiving standard voice calls between domestic wireless numbers as determined when the call is placed using independent third-party and Sprint databases. Available with select Sprint plans and while on the Nationwide Sprint or Nextel National Networks (excludes voicemail, 411 and other indirect methods).
On that same $79.99 plan, the only thing that is NOT unlimited is calling to a landline or 800 number, from 7am-6:59pm, which uses the 450 minutes. Anytime from 7pm-659am is unlimited, including weekends, regardless of calling a mobile phone or land line or 800 number.
Now, if you were to compare all of those things with what is offered on the other providers, there's absolutely no way the pricing matches up. Sprint will be cheaper every time.
