Sprint launches 'guarantee' for unlimited plans

By Associated Press

NEW YORK » Sprint is introducing a new wireless plan that guarantees new and existing subscribers unlimited voice, text and data plans in a move to differentiate its service from rivals AT&T and Verizon.

Sprint Nextel Corp. says that the plan, called the "Sprint Unlimited Guarantee," offers unlimited data for $30 a month on smartphones and $10 per month on traditional phones. Voice and text cost $50 for the first line and less for additional phone lines.

Sprint, the third-largest U.S. wireless carrier, is now under the control of Japanese investment firm SoftBank. Softbank owns a 78 percent stake in Sprint after a $21.6 billion deal closed on Wednesday.

Both AT&T Inc. and Verizon Wireless have ditched unlimited data offerings to new customers.

I had Sprint at one time. Had being an operative word. I would not recommend this cell phone company. Their service is the worst.

With Softbank in the fray the service should improve.

Cell phone companies have to regulated by an entity like the PUC. They're no longer just novelties, but are fundamental to the manner people communicate.
