Price Plan Comparison (Part 2 – Sprint)

(Continued from previous post)
As the economy seems to not get any better from week to week everyone is looking into ways to save money.  Wireless plans are a place that you might be able to cut some spending in your budget.

If you live in the US and are looking into getting an Android phone you are probably a little overwhelmed by the options available to smartphone customers. We have thrown together this little guide to what plans are available on what carriers.

We are going to do up a comparison of what the cheapest plans are on the big 3 US carriers, AT&T, Sprint and Verizon – for both a single line of service or for a family plan.  Part one will be AT&T, part 2 will be Sprint and part 3 will be Verizon (Done in alphabetical order to be fair).

Sprint has a much more simplified approach to the data plans.  They offer an unlimited data plan for their smartphones that gives you a truly unlimited amount of data.  Their individual plans are as follows:

Simply Everything (Unlimited Voice/Data) $99.99
Unlimited Data / 450 Minutes $69.99
Unlimited Data / 900 Minutes $89.99

So with an Android device you don’t have to worry about going over on your data.  Also with Sprint using a CDMA network you have a ton of coverage because in the areas where there is no Sprint coverage it roams on other carriers towers (Verizon).  The main downside to the CDMA is the fact that you can’t talk and surf the web at the same time, UNLESS you are connected to WIFI.

Pros: Cheapest price plan, Best Android selection, Only unlimited plan.

Cons: Can’t talk and surf web unless on Wifi, Non-roam coverage
