Sprint Ups Ante With "Any Mobile, Anytime" Plan

any_mobile_anytimeSprint has been doing their part to stem the bleeding that is customer churn.  With handsets like the Palm Pre, the BlackBerry Tour, and the forthcoming HTC Hero, they’re building up a handset repertoire that puts 2008’s offerings to shame. It’s true – they are getting better at keeping existing customers. Now the trick is to get new subscribers.  Enter Any Mobile, Anytime.Sprint has announced a new feature today that will enhance their Simply Everything Data Plans.  Forget circles and faves, how’d you like to call unlimited mobile-to-mobile, regardless of time or carrier?

Simply Everything and Ready Now were Sprint innovations to make wireless simpler and more worry-free for our customers. We don’t think our customers want to have to keep track of or only talk to friends, colleagues or family members who make the same choices they do. Any Mobile, Anytime provides unprecedented simplicity and value, so much that many more customers can now consider cutting the cord altogether. – Dan Hesse, CEO

For plans that start at $69.99, here’s what you get:

  • 450 Anytime Minutes
  • Unlimited Text/Picture Messaging
  • Unlimited 3G Data
  • Sprint TV, NFL Mobile Live and NASCAR Sprint Cup Mobile
  • Unlimited calling to ANY wireless phone on any U.S. wireless carrier network at any time

Existing Sprint customers who have an Everything Data or Everything Data Family plan will automatically Any Mobile, Anytime on their next bill cycle.

So now we ask you… who is getting an HTC Hero now?

    This is great news for single line plans, but it really doesn't help Sprint's issue with family plans. If you own a smartphone on Sprint and are part of a family plan, every one in the plan has to have unlimited data even if they don't or can't really use it. In the end, this makes Sprint cost more unless you know everyone on your family plan has a smartphone.

    Ex. 2 person family plan. One smart phone, one standard phone. Cost $130/month on sprint. A similar plan on Tmo (unlimited data on 1 line) only cost $85/month. The pricing for ATT and Verizon is similar. Though Sprint's plan does offer more features in their bundle, but you opt out of them like you can on the other carriers.

    That is what is stopping me from switching to sprint. Sprint is like a buffet restaurant. It is great if you are hungry and plan to make 3+ trips back to the bar, but it is quite a waste if one-trip is all you need.

    This is a nice feature add for sure. I'm not sure how it will play out with new/potential subscribers. I'm sure adding handsets that people actually want is also a plus.

    I for one, regardless of the "Any mobile, any time" bonus, was playing the waiting game to get the first Sprint Android handset.

    My birthday is today, but my present won't arrive until Oct. 11th.

    I am practically a phone whore… well not literally but having almost every phone there is in the current market and with intervals of having 7 iphones in 14 months.. long story… I preordered the Hero and is now with Sprint… I love the new feature.. although it does say in fine print that it can be cancelled if you go over 800 minutes.. odd huh? read the small fine print on the bottom of the page… its there.. anyhow back to my point… I love sprint because its affordable.. my plan with ATT & iPhone was $140 per month and now I am saving 50%… and I was also with TMo and I am saving $20 per month! I am excited to get my chinless Hero!

  • Terence Cruz Again

    and did I mention that their nights and weekends start at 7pm…. unlimited web and messaging.. and even TV and turn by turn navi.. its awesome!

  • Mattemer

    @ BackInAction Not sure that's the right metaphor… I feel Sprint is where you go if you want everything all at once, as this plan shows. The other carriers are where you are going to need to go if you want to take multiple trips to the buffet line, or maybe I'm misunderstanding you.

    Good point about the Smartphone/Reg Phone issue though. But who wouldn't want unlimited internet, this works even on regular cell phones though, correct?

    I for one and really happy about this, being with Sprint for over 9 years, and currently having an Everything Data Share plan, plus having Pre Ordered my HTC Hero at Best Buy (some are doing it early), I'm proud to be a Sprint customer.

    @Terence Cruz: I think you misread the small print about the 800 minutes. The way I read it, it states that it can be cancelled if you go over 800 minutes while roaming.

    This seals the deal for me. I will definitely be switching back to Sprint to get a Hero now.

  • justin

    I think they might have swayed me away from t mobile and the g1 and go with sprint and hero.after seeing HTC add their flavor to android i was very impressed and very dissapointed in hearing my g1 "with google" on back will also prevent me from getting the Sense upgrade when it makes its rounds. gunna miss my keyboard and Cyan tho…but mostly the chin : ( (damn Sprint!)

    Hey Guys,

    I have the Any time Any Mobile plan (AMA). The catch that I see with this plan is if you are going out the Sprint Network you start roaming, your minutes 450,1500 or 3000 minutes( it depends on the type of plan)will start counting. I do not see any problem. I have a bb 8330 and I can set up in order to be on Sprint Network only, so I will not have any problem.

    I like Sprint. The plans are the BEST any The Cheapest in the Market. I have been with them for the last 8 years. I will not leave this company for nothing. Costumer Service have been improved.

    I do not work for Sprint. I wish I could. Maybe one day. I have been submiting my aplication before.
    Go Sprint!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    The Now Network!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
