    We're bound to hear horror stories about any carrier. But I've had personal success with Sprint. When you pay for 4 lines like I do you want a lower monthly bill first and foremost. Then service needs to be available and reliable. I'll tolerate slow, as long as I can get done what I need to do. The speed is improving, but speed isn't in my top 3 needs from a wireless provider. (There always seems to be wifi available in areas which I frequent.) And Sprint's customer service has always taken care of me like we were personal friends or family. Any way, I'm going to enjoy having more money back in my pocket so thanks for that Sprint!
     
  5. As an European, I see no value is such plans. US mobile text/vioice/data plans are total rip-off in my eyes compared to unlimited plans in Europe.
    My wife had Unlimited plan from Scandinavian operator TELE2. Free text, free calls to any operator (not jus "home"network") in home country +plus a 1 Gig of data. price - under 9 USD per month. Competitors network offers a little bit pricier plan, that besides unlimited text / voice to any operator in country adds 1,5 Gigs of data. Price per month - 10 USD.

    That's what I call competition. US has no competition between mobile networks operators, just an illusion ..

    I use TING which uses sprint network my 4 lines cost me $84.00. I use to pay over 250 a month. And yes the speed is not my priority. When I switched nothing changed since they use they exact same towers
