Yeah, no kidding.
This week’s Plan Spotlight is frankly unprecedented. Sprint is offering new customers a full year of unlimited talk, text, and data for $0.
This plan normally costs $60 per month, so a little back-of-napkin math makes this look like $720 in savings.
Yeah okay, what’s the catch?
Uh… there doesn’t seem to be one. Anyone who has an eligible phone can swap to Sprint from Verizon, AT&T, T-Mobile, or essentially any other carrier. You can get up to 5 free lines of unlimited data for a year.
You keep your phone and your number.
Witchcraft! Where’s the fine print?
Straight from Sprint:
- The free year of service expires January 30, 2019 when you’ll be charged $60 a month for the first line, $40 a month for the second line, and $30 a month for each additional line. (For a family of four, count on paying $160 a month.)
- You must own your phone in full and only eligible phones qualify for this offer (qualifying devices are listed below)
- Autopay enrollment is required
Shut up and (don’t) take my money!

Actually, tell me more about this plan first.
Plan includes unlimited talk, text and data. However, after you have used 23GB of high-speed data in a month, speed can be temporarily slowed during times of high network traffic (data deprioritization).
- 10GB of high speed hot spot data
- High definition video streaming
- International roaming which includes 2G data and text messaging in over 165 countries
