Sprint Launches New Pricing Plans

As of January 14th, Sprint will be offering new "Power Pack" individual and family plans. This is a change from the previous "Fair and Flexible" plans. The new plans emphasize Sprint's early nights-and-weekend starting time, no roaming charges, and unlimited mobile to mobile. Customers will also have the opportunity to buy blocks of 50 anytime minutes for $5.

The plans are great when looking at other carriers. For example, Sprint's unlimited nights-and-weekends starts at 7:00 PM, where the competition starts at 9:00 PM. If you add this up, that's 120 free minutes a day or 3600 free minutes over a month. With Verizon or Cingular, those 3600 minutes would be charged at $.45/minute or $540, but with Sprint they are free!! The other benefit is the option to purchase blocks of 50 anytime minutes for $5, or $.10/minute. Without purchasing the block, the minutes would be charged $.45 or $22.5.
