Sprint Debuts Framily Plan, Makes Adding Lines Cheaper

rsz_sprint-logo

It seems T-Mobile isn’t the only wireless provider with smarts enough to make “uncarrier” changes. Sprint announced today the addition of a mobile plan, the Sprint Framily Plan, that will allow new and existing customers to add up to 10 lines to a single bill.

The cost per person starts at $55 a month for unlimited voice service, text messaging, and 1GB of data, although each additional customer added to the plan results in a discount of $5 a month up to a maximum of $30; plans with 7 to 10 users will cost $25 each line per month, for example. 3GB of data for individual lines is available for an extra $10 a month, while unlimited data is an additional $20 per month but also includes eligibility for yearly device upgrades.

The “framily” plan could result in significant cost savings for some subscribers. A comparable plan on AT&T would cost $70 a month per line, while Verizon’s alternative begins at $90. T-Mobile doesn’t have a similar 1GB plan, but the carrier’s 500MB data plan with unlimited voice and text would cost $50 a month.

The plan will be available at Sprint corporate and third-party stores beginning January 10.

    “Framily”. Even if it was a great plan I would not buy it just because I don’t want to see or hear that stupid word ever again. Or should I say Sproopid.

    Check out how Sprint lies to customers about its Service though. http://mysprintexpierence.blogspot.com/2014/01/proof-that-sprint-covers-up-its-1x.html

    where are you getting the $90 from for verizon per line? Verizon has a 500 mb plan so the cost would be $80, if thats the route your taking. Not a great deal but not what your showing in this article. Also, this is a apples to oranges comparison the plans have really nothing in common but the “share”. Each line doenst get its own data they share data…Not ideal but……..

    …and cut to the last scene from “A Christmas Story”.

      Perfect ending

    I ruv choosing framry prans when we eat robster craws

  • Dan DeMarco

    Wow if I worked for Sprint I couldn’t take myself seriously by saying “Framily”. Their Marketing Director should be excommunicated.

  • mcdonsco

    The only way I could leave Verizon for sprint is if sprint and T-Mobile merged…oh, wait.

  • Kevin Esser

    Praystation Bunduru!

    Sprint couldn’t be more creative than a stupid name like “Framily”? How do you market something like “Framily” and make people take you seriously.

    • Vitis

      I work for Sprint. I hate this word.

  • betty boop

    Sprint lies. They’ll deceives you by saying unlimited data usage and then charge you more money because their unlimited has a limit that they don’t tell you about. And if each family member has an Android then it’s still $10.00 or $20.00 a month for your family member but they’ll jack up the bill for three primary line. DON’T GET SPRINT! THEY ARE SCAMMERS! !!

  • Marisa

    Sprint is good if you don’t care if you receive all texts sent to you but just some and you don’t mind if some of your texts silently never make it to the recipient. I like T-Mobile.

    • Good_Ole_Pinocchio

      Sprint does have a random issue with Text messages and picture messages being sent to different networks. So much weird sht at that network

    • Chris

      I don’t experience that issue. I’m from the Portland Oregon area btw

  • StuckOnVerizonForever

    I wouldn’t use Sprint, even if it was free

    • Chris

      Then you wouldn’t be stuck on Verizon forever

      • StuckOnVerizonForever

        Ill take the high bills and coverage everywhere, over the worst cell company aka Sprint

  • Michael

    This article needs work. a line with 3gb and unlimited data? makes no sense…bro

    • Kyle Wiggers

      Yeah, that was unclear. Fixed.

    • Eric R.

      I think it means 3GB of high speed data, and then your speeds are throttled

  • Michael

    Framily plan? whats a framily?

    • AlphaNoble

      He crearry meant “Framiry Pran”

    • capecodcarl

      It’s probably a portmanteau of “Friends” and “Family”.

    • master94

      Friends + Family

      • Michael

        i think it was obvious that this was rhetorical

        • Daniel Richardson

          You would have thought so, but crearry he didn’t catch on..

  • Ryan

    Problem is most customers arent approved for adding lines at Sprint.

    • Vitis

      You don’t need to be approved for 10 lines to have 10 lines in your Fram group. They’ll have their own account numbers and their own bills. They’ll just be a part of your group.

  • Mike Hilal

    TMO works…sprint, not so much

    • Chris

      In your area.

      • jeff

        Ive never been anywhere sprint really “works”.

        • zurginator

          This… And considering Atlanta is at least a mildly important market…

  • Allen Byrd

    • Aooga

      • Ahab

        Is Framily another one of his Thesaurus’d “Smart” words?
