Prepaid is becoming quite a popular option for mobile users these days—and why wouldn’t it? It keeps you autonomous from any mobile company, and you can hop between carriers when a new phone hits the market that strikes your fancy. All the major carriers already have their own pay-as-you-go variants, and now Sprint is expanding its “As You Go” offerings with an even cheaper plan.
Plans will start at $45-a-month for unlimited talk and text with no data, or $60-a-month plan for unlimited talk and texting, plus 2.5GB a month of data. (That plan limits video streaming to 3G speeds.)
Sprint is well-known for the prepaid carriers that piggyback off of its network—think Boost Mobile and Virgin Mobile USA. But Sprint Prepaid, which initially debuted last year, is designed specifically for those who want to stay committed to Sprint, but don’t want to bother with a credit check or other spending limits. Customers can pay in advance for a device and for each individual month of service without dealing with a monthly bill.
As an added bonus, you can nab a 3G-only Motorola Moto G, 4G-capable Samsung Galaxy S III, or Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini as part of the package. Sprint Prepaid customers can also participate in the company’s Buyback program for account credits.
