Sprint reported that it will begin offering its new all-inclusive "Simply Everything" unlimited plan for $99.99.
This new Sprint plan handily beats out offerings from the other major U.S. carriers by including not only unlimited voice and messaging, but also unlimited data, email (including BlackBerry BIS), GPS navigation, Sprint TV, Direct Connect (PTT), and even 150 channels of Sprint Music.
Sprint is making the Simply Everything plan available on both its CDMA and iDEN (Nextel) networks. Existing customers can switch to the new plan without having to extend their contracts. Families can save with the new plans as well. For each line beyond the first, an incremental $5 discount is included per added line, meaning that a two line family plan can be had for $194.98 ($99.99 + $94.99) and three lines can had for $284.97 ($99.99 + $94.99 + $89.99)
It is worth noting that the new unlimited plan does not include songs purchased from the Sprint Music Store or any of its game offerings. Text messages sent to some promotional programs might also result in a charge. Lastly, the new plan does not include tethering the phone to a personal computer for use as a modem.
