Sprint just announced a new offer that bundles together the iPhone and iPad and waives the monthly cost of a 16GB iPad mini 3 when both are leased through the iPhone/iPad for Life program and a 2GB data plan is purchased for the tablet.
So: A 16GB iPhone 6 on Sprint’s $50 Simply Unlimited plan and a 16GB iPad mini 3 with a $30 2GB data plan will run $100 per month after the iPad’s monthly lease rate is erased in the form of a $17 monthly service credit.
The bundle deal is fully customizable with the iPhone 6 Plus and iPad Air 2, as well as 64GB and 128GB models of all four Apple devices, available at an incrementally higher cost.
"We still have a lot to cover" is what the invite (picture below) says. New iPad 5 is expected, but people aren't sure about whether the iPad mini will go Retina or not. Updated desktop Macs are also likely.
I personally hope that the iPad mini goes Retina and that it and the regular iPad both get Touch ID.
When I think more about this merger now that we're approaching April 1, I think back to these old Sprint advertisements and how things have turned out since.
These are first rate ads, and they certainly rival anything that the other three carriers put out there. However, this merger was bound to happen when these advertisements were better than the actual network. The icing on top was great, but the cake was falling apart underneath.
