AT&T's data only plans, will Sprint follow?

sprint already has data only plans, but apparently they are only available to the deaf/hard of hearing.

 

I would welcome broader availability of such plans, for tablets and smartphones.

I already use Google Voice for texting, and can easily move to things like GrooveIP to use GVoice for, well, voice as well. Easy jump for me.

 

I also find it funny how the article says that 10 GB for $100 is a "very reasonable rate". Compare: Sprint's Hotspot/Tablet plans offer 12 GB for $80, while Verizon's "data-only" plans give you 10 GB for $60 (+20 for a hotspot, +10 for a tablet, +0 if it's just HomeFusion). That makes AT&T's "very reasonable" rates easily the most expensive. I do applaud them for dropping their rates, though (matching VZW's 10 GB/$60 rate), even if it is only for data devices and not phones (and not if you have phones on your account).

Sprint relay is 39.99 a month for unlimited data and messaging. I dont see any reason why if u know some one at sprint you couldnt get on it if they liked you. Ive set up about a dozen deaf people on it and all the sprint rep has to do is call into the sprint relay department to move a phone number to that plan.

 

 

But if you know a sprint employee that would be willing to break rules they are probably good enough friends to put you on their SWAC line plan which are $40 for 500 anytime minutes, unlimited everything else.

"Sprint relay is 39.99 a month for unlimited data and messaging...." This only applied 3G or 4G Wimax smartphone. If I want 4GLTE smartphone or iphone, then I have to get $45 unlimited text and data plus $10 premium data fee

I was not aware of that increase for lte. That really sucks. Sprint doesn't actively train reps on relay and im sure many do not know about it.The first time i set some one up i had no idea what it was. Luckily the customer knew what it was and after a quick call into NSS i got the relay departments number.

I actually tried to open a line with a sprint relay, but they kept wanting my video phone number, which I obviously didn't have. At the time it was still 40 for lte too.

Ya I feel you. I still have my $39.99 sprint relay data plan and I want to get new phone(samsung gs4). I ask Sprint Relay CSR if I could upgrade and keep my old $39.99 data plan. They said No. :/ I dont know what happen if I decided to upgrade at the Sprint store lol

    • Pace picks up a bit.  Round 23.  About 86% now "uncontested" and $223 Million total.  Down to 159 licenses without bids.

Basically Money savings on 2.5 mostly rural auction are funding 600MHz purchases.  Also mentions continuing purchases of 2.5 outright. Likely understates the amount of MHz. Auction going slightly faster with 4 auction sessions per day now, but still less than 80% "settled".  After 18 rounds it is at $190 Million, with $400 to $800 Million expected. could go on for another month.  check here for updates about 1 hour after each round: https://www.sashajavid.com/FCC_Auction108.php#county_details_table_overlay
    • Yeah, I went up to Kitsap on Friday. Was able to connect to several n41 sites as SA only in Port Orchard, Bremerton and Silverdale.  However, I could not get any throughput.  It would say Mobile Data Suspended.  n41 NSA would throughput just fine. Was pushing 500-800 Mbps. I don't know if it was the network at the time or my device causing the failure for data throughput. It was the exact same result on every site I connected to.  I'm on a normal Tmo Postpaid SIM.  Nothing unusual.  LG V60. Robert n41 SA   n41 NSA
    • I did mention it before, but I don't remember if I did post a picture of it, so I did a 2-for-1 special the second time around. Ah, so that is what I saw. I walk by Boys and Girls field if the C train takes forever to show up in the late evening, but I cared more about getting home than investigating it lol
    • August update finally arrived for S22+ unlocked tonight 👍
