Everything data plan ending?

Recommended Posts

I thought that I had seen in  a thread that the Everything data plan was no longer going to be available starting fairly soon. Does anyone know when people will no longer be able to choose this plan?

I ask this b/c my friend and I just signed up for Sprint, with separate accounts. He gets a 23% off discount but when I got my first bill realized that discounts on the Everything my way plan only apply to the data portion of the bill. So after browsing through this website, it seems like the Everything data plan is much cheaper for his two lines, especially considering the discount.

So... does anyone know if he can still sign up for this account, and if so, until when? :unsure:

Interesting... had never heard of that plan. But it looks like you can't get this plan if you are already a Sprint customer...  You also can't combine with a corporate discount.

I did not know that EPRP would stay even after they retired everything data. I assumed they would all get killed off at the same time.

 
To answer the OP question, I believe the date is tomorrow(10/11/13) That was the date I last saw in the leaked Sprint One Up documents. 
 
I just signed up for EPRP last night. Of course the iPhone is sold out, so I cannot get my device for another 4+ weeks.

Right, sorry I read your post wrong and didn't realize you already had an account. I would just try calling up Sprint tomorrow and see if they will put you on the everything data rate plan.

So another question... right now on the my all plans the employee discount only applies to the primary line's data... in the everything data plan, what recurring charges are discounted assuming you have two lines of service?

The old plans end tomorrow. You can still stay on the old plans if you're already on them, but will be unable to switch to them. You can still upgrade as normal, and can even add lines up to the limit of 5 on a single share plan.

 

In order to take advantage of Sprint One Up for Smartphones, you must be on a My Way or My All In plan, however.

 

EPRP and SERO are also being expired, iirc. I don't have that information on hand.

 

To answer the above question, the discount is off of $110, no matter how many lines you have. So, for 4+ lines on Everything, My Way, the discount is off of a larger portion of the bill. This also makes a lot more sense. "The more you buy, the more you save", they likely will tell you.

So the discount is off $110 for two lines? I'm just a bit confused b/c you said "the discount is off a larger portion of the  bill... the more you buy the more you save..."

As far as My way, I am pretty sure the employee discount only applies to the data portion. For me (single line) it was a whopping $3 with the 10% CU member discount.  FYI, his employer gets 23%...

Sero was expired a long time ago... unless you mean they will no longer be able to use their upgrades?

 

That can't be.  I can see them saying that the EPRP can't sign new customers but for existing customers who have EPRP and SERO should be able to extend their contracts.

Uh oh... I am out the door then if SERO is killed. No value in staying after that is removed especially with the lack of a working network in my market.

If u are grandfathered in you should still be able to upgrade on Sero premium

So when my friend and I switched we were not told that only the data is discountable. He has a family plan with a relative. He was told last night that he gets the discount on both of his data plans. Can anyone confirm if thats' the case; that he'll be getting an employee discount on both his $30 data plan and his mother's? He was told last night the everything data plan was no longer available.

I so did not want to see these plans go until after Dec..  As much as I want to come over to Sprint, the switch will just cost to much per year now for me to switch.  Guess I'll be a Ntelos for a while now.

that's why the EPRP plans are still around.  They're not corporate discounted, but they are cheaper than the my way plans.

I checked eprp this morning and I don't see the plans anymore. Maybe it was removed today.

Sooo... since I work for the CU Assn of my state I called up the Assn in charge of the cu program... Here's the scoop...

The old plans are gone as of last night.

In the new plans, the data of each additional line gets the discount and you can have up to 10 lines. So you could potentially get the discount applied to $300 of data charges.

 

So if you have a ton of people on your account (or have abusiness account) and all of them have unlimited data, and you like having unlimited minutes, then the new plans are awesome. If you're like me or Jonathan and only have one or two lines, then they are not so good.

 

Certainly wish the sales guy had told us this.... :rolleyes:

I am on the site now, and it seems like they updated the EPRP with my way style pricing. It is called Everything Plus Unlimited, my way.(EPUMW)

 
It is 50 40 30 20 for the first second third and fourth+, which is the same as my way, but the unlimited data plan is only 20 instead of 30.

So im under the older family plan, unlimited eveything besides talk (1500 shared landline minutes), will sprint force into one of the new plans? the only reason I ask is because we only pay about 200$ per month (about 50$ per phone) and its a great deal, with the new plan its goes up about 45-50$. so im just curious. Thanks my S4GRU friends :tu:

Wow noticed that too.  I wonder if you can still use employee discounts with this plan now.

Is there something wrong with the EPRP web sight?  I thought it was suppose to be cheaper going through it. If you go to check out it charges you $50.00 per phone for basic. that is $20 more per month than just walking in as a regular customer!  And I use it under the family plan. It almost work like individual plan. Or maybe I'm just missing something here.

    • It would not surprise me if T-Mobile leases UScellular's used spectrum while converting sites for up to a year.
    • Here's the spectrum breakdown by band. There's some 2.5 in there as well. The remaining spectrum is definitely enough to keep running FWA on while finding a buyer, and since the towers aren't conveying with the subs and spectrum there's nothing stopping USCellular from competing with T-Mobile on FWA until Verizon or AT&T decide the spectrum is valuable enough to take off TDS's hands. If they go that route, I wouldn't be surprised if FWA gets rebranded under TDS.
    • Transaction Details and Financial Profile T-Mobile will pay approximately $4.4 billion for the assets being acquired from UScellular in the transaction in a combination of cash and up to $2.0 billion of debt to be assumed by T-Mobile through an exchange offer to be made to certain UScellular debtholders prior to closing. To the extent any debtholders do not participate in the exchange, their bonds will continue as obligations of UScellular and the cash portion of the purchase price will be correspondingly increased. Following the closing of the transaction, UScellular will retain ownership of its other spectrum as well as its towers, with T-Mobile entering into a long-term arrangement to lease space on at least 2,100 additional towers being retained. T-Mobile does not expect the transaction to impact the company’s 2024 guidance or 2024 authorized shareholder return program. T-Mobile expects this transaction will yield approximately $1.0 billion in effective total opex and capex annual run rate cost synergies upon integration, with total cost to achieve the integration currently estimated at between $2.2 billion to $2.6 billion. The company plans to reinvest a portion of synergies toward enhancing consumer choice, quality and competition in the wireless industry. The transaction, which is subject to the satisfaction of customary closing conditions and receipt of certain regulatory approvals, is expected to close in mid-2025.
    • The way I heard it, these were for sites that T-Mobile would not be keeping, and presumably is how they would handle decommissioning the equipment from them.  This would presumably happen because they're already on the tower or on an adjacent tower.  For example, in Keysville, VA, T-Mobile is on a tower directly adjacent to the existing US Cellular-owned tower. https://maps.app.goo.gl/kefNy451QXYFSqi5A T-Mobile at left; at right is the US Cellular-owned tower with both US Cellular and Verizon gear on it. - Trip
    • My gut opinion is they are waiting for technology improvements. C-band is seeing some of those emerge now which will extend its useful range and carrying capacity.  Given it current short range, 24GHz is best for places where people are seated in sizeable numbers, although I would not rule out business pico cells. Of course, Verizon is using mmWave small cells quite well for FWA by placing them outside large apartment buildings that only allow one ISP with outrageous charges. UScellular and some Verizon have been using it to do the job of microwave links to preserve licences (4 needed per county).
