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?"

I wouldn't get it anyway. T-Mob is dying and I could not recommend to anyone to take a contract with a company going poof in a year or so.

Most likely ATT will just kill the deal when they take them over anyways. We will see if this pushes Sprint's prices down though they are still the only true unlimited plan.

I am really kind of perplexed over the At&t T-Mobile thing. But this is awesome maybe Sprint will drop it back to 69.99 with a smart phone that would rock as one of the two will most likely gain me as a customer soon. Oh and for anyone wondering I have spoke to a T-Mobile lead tech and he said ("if I sign a two year contract they have and will per there company reps") to honor it even if At&t buys them!
