Sprint has announced a new set of plans for customers, titled “Framily” plans. That horrible mash-up of a word combines friends and family on one account, which will allow up to 10 customers to share a bill on one account, with some discounts.
These new plans look slightly similar to Sprint’s All-In plans; the more lines on the account, the bigger the discount you get for your service. A single-line account with unlimited talk and text will run $55 a month, and you’ll have the option to get 3 GB of data for an extra $10 a month or unlimited data for $20. Sprint’s slowly edging towards data caps on their plans, but at least they’re offering unlimited data for those willing to pay for it. Now, if there are two lines on the account, each phone only costs $50 a month for unlimited talk, text and 1 GB of data, and that goes down $5 for each phone added up until the 7th line. Lines 7 through 10 will all cost $25 bucks for the talk, text, and 1 GB of data, which is a pretty substantial discount if you can manage to get more than 7 people on one plan. Plus, you still get the advantage of being able to individually purchase the bigger data packages per line. » Read the rest
