Sprint to one-up AT&T and Verizon, offering unlimited data plans to the iPhone?

Sprint, number three when it comes to U.S. wireless carriers, is said to offer the iPhone next month with unlimited data service plans to better seperate itself from rivals AT&T and Verizon Wireless, according to “people familiar with the matter”. This is interesting information considering all sorts of rumors have swirled for weeks indicating that Sprint is offering iPhone 5 in October.

Lets face it, Sprint is struggling to compete against AT&T and Verizon, and the fact that it’s been bleeding money for 15 consecutive quarters doesn’t help either. There shouldn’t be any question that the addition of the iPhone to Sprint’s lineup will help it win customers, especially when its the only one offering true unlimited data service plans. If Sprint keeps its data plans unlimited, the iPhone could be a potential game-changer for the carrier.

Just think, would you prefer AT&T’s unlimited voice service for $69.99 a month, and measly 2 gigabytes of data for $25 a month? How about Verizon’s voice service for $69.99 a month with its ridiculous $30 a month for 2 gigabytes of data? These prices are insulting to consumers, and I don’t care how good Verizon’s network is. I rather take Sprint’s $99.99 everything unlimited plan with no data caps. It’s a no-brainer.

Sprint customers, are you getting the new iPhone when it launches? People without Sprint, would you consider dumping your carrier for true unlimited plan on Sprint?

    Sounds to good to be true right? Well I called Verizon today and let them have it about not having unlimited data like sprint will be offering and they said mam you need to look at the fine print on there contract where it says unlimited data it’s unlimited on there towers but if your roaming or are in places that there towers don’t reach then you are not covered under there towers there for you will be charged data when roaming on 3rd party towers or if it’s picking up signal on other carriers!! So ya everyone read the fine print and make sure you know what your getting into before you switch to any other carriers! -Anna-

    Dear Dear Anna,

    Verizon just F*****G lied to YOU!!!  I have had my Any Mobile Any Time Unlimited Data and my EVO for over a year now.  I will put this in all caps so everyone understands it.  I HAVE NEVER HAD ANY ROAMING DATA CHARGES!  Roaming data is included with the plan!  Voice roaming simply deducts from your plans included minutes, and guess who Sprint roams off of….Yep that’s right VERIZON!  For example I have 1500 minutes to share with the other 4…yep count ’em 4 EVO’s!  If I have to make a “voice roaming” call, it simply deducts from the 1500 minutes that are included.  One other thing to note with Sprints wonderful service.  Any Mobile Any Time simply means it.  Between the EVO’s on my plan we only have used 500 minutes between ALL of the EVO’s!  Sprint will hands down get a TON and I mean a TON of new customers if they leave the iPhone UNLIMITED! Don’t be afraid to make the Sprint leap everyone.  What’s the worst case scenario? You end up roaming for FREE on Big Red’s network?  I’ll pick Sprint any day of the week!
