Sprint has been making a big push to take on the bigger mobile phone carriers, so it is offering customers very low pricing on plans, which is good news for those who want to save a little on their phone bill.
Best for: Those who don’t need great coverage but want great data plans for cheap.
Pros: Data plans that are cheaper than competition. Unlimited data plan.
Cons: Coverage can be spotty, expensive international plans
Sprint offers a great Unlimited Plan, which gets you unlimited data, talk and text for $60/month, which is a pretty good deal. If you don’t need unlimited data, you can choose a data plan (with unlimited talk and text.) The smallest data plan is $20 for 1GB of data, while the largest plan is 60GB for $225.
