Sprint Prepaid service now includes 50 minutes of off network roaming with all plans. While 50 minutes isn't much it could be a life saver if you had a wreck along one of the long stretches on major highways that Sprint doesn't cover. Examples of Sprint coverage gaps include a 364 mile stretch of I-80 from Fernley NV to Wendover UT and 168 miles of US 101 from Cloverdale to Fortuna CA. I can't imagine 50 minutes of roaming costs Sprint very much and hope they add it to their more popular Boost Mobile and Virgin Mobile prepaid brands.
Sprint Prepaid is only available at Sprint stores or by calling 855-639-4644. There are three plans:
- $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
