Petition for Sprint to Add New Family Plans?

Re: Petition for Sprint to Add New Family Plans?

I agree wholeheartedly! As families transition away from land lines they need more minutes but we certainly do not need as many as that.  My family would probably be perfect in the 700 to 800 minute range.  Please Sprint - Add this option for us!

Re: Petition for Sprint to Add New Family Plans?

After getting the Anytime and Mobile added I don't even dent my minutes anymore. I love the anytime any mobile but now we need smaller plans. I have 3 phones on my account with everything 1500, and don't even reach 500 minutes between all 3. I don't watch my minutes but who doesn't have a cell phone now??? SPRINT NEEDS to LOWER their family plans. Come up with about 4 tiers or something. Like a 750 minute, 1000 minutes, the 1500, 3000 and unlimited. Pretty wide open options that seem they would fit any families need. I am tired of paying my bill to not utilize all my minutes or even come close to. Come on sprint unless you want to lose customers listen to us. Mr. Dan Hesse CEO now on top of your wonderful anytime any mobile, please make another sensible move like adjusting plans. I know you would have thought that some may not use all their minutes now. You may get more customers if you change plans and still offer anytime anymobile. People go where it is flexible, reliable, and who offers more in their plans for the buck!!!!! Plain and simple need smaller plans.

They should offer something with less minutes for those which want share plans but no need for something like 1500 min. Following today's AS article;

People don't need contracts but smart way to save money, more min. will bring only devastation for Sprint. They got to be smarter than that, well, I forgot their CEO don't read.

Re: Petition for Sprint to Add New Family Plans?

Sprint can you offer premium customers that have been with you for 5 years or more a 700 or 1000 minute family plan?  I would like to think that loyalty means something. YOU CAN DO IT!

700 talk and messaging

i currently have Talk & Everything Messaging 700 for Family the retail price for the plan is 69.99 but i work for penske and i get an 18% discount so i pay 57.39 for the plan and have data added to one phone for $12.30 (with my discount) so we have tow lines both have unlimited messaging and one has unlimited data all for the low low price of $69.69 a month which is a deal if you ask me.

some other businesses that get the evp discount for sprint are(you have to be employed there)

sears 25% off monthly bill         (i thought about getting a job at sears for a week just to get this discount)

best buy 22% off monthly bill

whirlpool not sure how much

government 15% off monthly bill

state workers  15% off monthly bill

college students 15 % off montly bill

there are many more

just go to evpdiscount.com/(put your company name here)

example:   evpdiscount.com/whirlpool             this will take you to the whirlpool discount page

example:   evpdiscount.com/osu                    this will take you to ohio state university discount page

example:   evpdiscount.com/airozna              this will take you to airozna state employee discount page

I recomend buying your phone from somewhere like letstalk.com or wirefly.com or shop.cellulardeals.com then switch to your evp discount because the phones are cheaper on these 3 sites.

Re: Petition for Sprint to Add New Family Plans?

I agree totally with. I have been with Sprint over 10 years, my family don't use that much phone calls out of our Mobil limit, mainly family calls. Currently we have 550 min and that is the minimum for family plan (older plan, currently not available). If I tell you we sometimes don't even pass the 150 min a month.

My phone is the only phone capable of using both messaging and data. My total charge is around $115 for two extra lines add. If I upgrade and I really wish to $129 plan, my total will be $169 plus taxes and fees. So I'm $55 less but without the benefit of GPS, Pri TV, Data and Messaging for everybody, with no need for the extra 950 min. Do you feel my pain!

My contract is expiring on April, elgible for discount on phone upgrades but holding my breath for better plan or an offer by another company. AT&T sounds much better for my test right if I may chose.

Sprint been a good company for me and I did kept them for longer than my buddies did. I wish one time they listen to upgrade their plans to make them superior to others, phone selection needs upgrades too and lower your charge for a 24 months contract as others are proudly doing.

Re: Petition for Sprint to Add New Family Plans?

Hey sprint,  I agree you have the best plans and I believe you even have the clearest calls.. I have been a member for amost 11 years come june.. I have been on the everything mobil to mobil 1500 min plan for 2 years. I have 4 people on the account and we do not even make 700 minutes.. I love the fact that all the cell calls are free this is awsome but it would be nice to have a lesser plan as well. I think there should be 700-800 mintes.. Although, we do not even hit 500 I would be more willing to take 800 and then maybe in a year dump my home phone...

Please bring out a family plan that is reasonable for everyday use. I do agree with another person as to bring back that 50 minutes for 5 dollars if you go over your minutes.. You will get more money back that way.. I really would be iin more support of that and you will have more in your back pocket in the long run.  Maybe not anyone else but I would also love to see if you can add Canada in to the calling area.. I have an aunt in VANCOUVER and would love to have this option to call her verses paying the fees.. Could you please make this happen as well.... No other carrier has them as I know ATT has a separate plan for canada calling. I would like to see Sprint live... I do not want it to become ATT.. I know they would probably never buy Sprint unless it was dirt cheap because of all the revamping they would have to do to the network.. I don't want it to become verizon or heaven forbid tmobil...... The only one I might agree w/ is uscellular but their coverage I think is alot less than sprint already has.

Please sprint listem to your long time members as you have me and I will not give up on you.. I have been in support of you since you came in to the chicago area... Love sprint.

Re: Petition for Sprint to Add New Family Plans?

I agree with this completely and I have been waiting for what seems like forever for Sprint to take action on this matter. Sprint's new thing could be an Everything Data 700 shared minute plan with 2 lines including anymobile anytime for $99.99/month. That would get a lot of attention especially if it was widely advertised on TV. Also, at $19.99/month for additional lines 3-5, Sprint could advertise a family of 4 people for $139.99/month. AT&T and Verizon would probably never even try to come close to that. If Sprint is still shedding customers, they need to wake up and offer cheaper options before the losses become too great to sustain business. Also, Sprint could potentially bring back additional revenue being collected from people going over 700 minutes per month. With their current selection of shared plans with 1500 or 3000 minutes, very few people probably go over their minutes and Sprint ends up not collecting additional revenue due to overages.
