For the longest time, Sprint's "Simply Everything" plan was the cheapest
overall "everything included" calling plan offered by one of the four
major U.S. carriers. But now, T-Mobile USA is encroaching, and you have
to wonder if this new plan will be folded or pushed over when the
AT&T takeover occurs. The company's newest calling plan is a $79.99
all-inclusive one that includes unlimited data, calling and texting.
There's no overage charges to deal with either, but of course, you'll
need to sign a two-year agreement to get the deal.
Also unique with this is that it includes "4G" coverage, but of course,
it's debatable whether HSPA+ is truly 4G or not. The only "gotcha!" is a
big one for heavy data users. While "unlimited" data is included,
you'll see throttling begin after you exceed 2GB of use within a month.
Of course, T-Mobile says that "on average," their customers use but 1GB
of data per month, but still, if you know you're one of those that uses
more, you need to think long and hard before biting on this one.
The new $79.99 Even More unlimited plan is available now for qualifying
customers, so the real question is "what phone are you going to grab?"
