Sprint has made some changes to its little known Sprint Prepaid service. The old separate plans for feature phones and smartphones have been replaced by three plans that bear a superficial resemblance to the new Data Boost plans offered under Sprint's Boost Mobile brand. The new plans are:
- $35/month - Unlimited Talk & Text and 1GB of data
- $45/month - Unlimited Talk & Text and 3GB of data
- $55/month - Unlimited Talk & Text and 6GB of data
- The data limits on Sprint Prepaid are hard caps, data stops when the limit is reached. On the Boost plans, unlimited throttled data is available after the included limit is reached.
- The $55 Data Boost Plan included 10GB of high speed data rather than 6GB
- Kyocera Kona flip phone $19.99
- Kyocera Event Android phone $99.99
- Motorola Moto G Android phone $99.99
- Apple iPhone 4S 8GB (Certified Pre-owned) $149.99
- Samsung Galaxy SIII LTE Android phone $299.99
- Samsung Galaxy S 4 Mini LTE Android phone $349.99
I have a feeling that Sprint prepaid exists solely to give Sprint retail sales representatives something to offer to customers who don't qualify for postpaid. There are better prepaid deals available both inside and outside Sprint.
