Sprint Plan Spreadsheet

Re: Sprint Plan Spreadsheet

The comparisons are not meant to be all-inclusive, they are meant as an overview of the currently offered plans that are getting headlines. Not to mention we already had these comparison charts already available in our stores so I just had to reproduce them in the file. I plan to add a couple more, but until then if people need specific plan comparisons they should take the time to do that themselves to ensure they are getting the best value before deciding.

Sprint isn't the cheapest for every situation, but making a comparison chart for every situation available would take a lot of time and isn't worth the effort for the number of people that would benefit.

Re: Sprint Plan Spreadsheet

It is great! Fyi- You might want to check on the NDC Custom Plans. I don't see them on the site, but not sure if they are completely gone.

Re: Sprint Plan Spreadsheet

Hmm interesting... I added the pages originally on the 13th, before the new plan brochures and changes happened on the 14th. The new plan brochures don't have the NDC plans in them, and checking our internal pages it looks like the plans were discontinued on the 14th with the price changes. The NDC Custom plans have been removed from the spreadsheet.

Re: Sprint Plan Spreadsheet

I just thought of comparison worth adding as it always is brought up on this site. A family plan with a phone that requires an Everything Data family plan, but yet keep the other phones without the data charge?

Does Verizon/AT&T allow this, more importantly do you save any money with Sprint?

In addition, I see you left T-Mobile off the list. I know they have less customers, but seems like it might be worth showing what they have to offer too.

Re: Sprint Plan Spreadsheet

Had some trouble with my pc, so I wasn't able to open the link until today.   Looks really good....

How current is the information right now and how often do you plan to update it?   Is it something you'll have available on Sprint's website sometime soon?

Verizon and AT&T do allow this, however it is a lot of work to add another section for every family plan with one data phone and one without data. The charts I have here are only slight modifications of current charts available internally that I just had to copy over into the doc. I may do this in the future, but at the moment it is a lot of work and will take some time to copy over in the same layout that I am using currently. I just finished a couple days ago redoing the entire comparison page to match the same layout down the length.

As for T-mobile, it is essentially the same thing, it is simply going to take time to do it. I probably will, but it isn't on the plate immediately.

The latest update is referenced at the bottom of every page, at the moment I last updated the information on Feb. 17th. The doc is entirely a personal endeavor and is not endorsed by Sprint, hence the disclaimer at the bottom of every doc page as well. I plan on keeping it updated as new plans are released, but it may not be up to date immediately after a change, which is why I have the last updated date on there as well. As a side to that, most likely the page will not be officially posted on the Sprint.com site since it is not an official document.

I understand it will take time and you may not get to it immediately, just thought I would mention it as a suggestion.

Keep up the updates and who knows maybe someone internally will see it and give you a promotion!

Re: Sprint Plan Spreadsheet

Very well done!  I am bookmarking this page as an easy place to check rate plan information.  I will of course be double checking the Sprint site as well just to be safe

Thanks for the time and effort you spent on this!

Re: Sprint Plan Spreadsheet

Halcyoncmdr117, I think that a spread sheet showing plans and services that are included in the base plan would be very valuable.  Customers often are confused by the difference between what their handset can do versus what their plan can do.  Example,  three of my four phones have GPS capabilities but my plan does not include GPS, therefore if I want GPS service I have to pay extra.  This would have avoided the issue with the customers that had an Everything Plan that thought they also had Phone as Modem service.  Even though it worked for them for a while it was clearly not included in the original base plan.  Your spread sheet would have demonstrated this point.  Thanks for your effort.

Re: Sprint Plan Spreadsheet

Haleycmdr117. I may have spoke out of turn on my last response.  I did not see your link with the spread sheet on it until after I responded.  Very impressive by the way.  I noticed that under the unlimited data pack section you say it includes GPS.  I have two phones on Unlimited Data Pack and two phones on Data Plus Pack.  Do I understand correctly that I do have GPS service included in my plan.

Re: Sprint Plan Spreadsheet

I just want to first thank you for such a comprehensive clarification of the Sprint plans.  Your format is straight foreward and resolved my headache from trying to compare the various plans within Sprint with the bonus of comparing with other carriers.  I was working on the best solution of plans for the HTC EVO 4G.  Its individual cost requirement for required plans and how to implement the cost for a family plan with three HTC EVO 4Gs.   There are several required plans plus options.  I did not see any family plan for the 4G data option.  Perhaps you can sort this out for me for this special unit.  What would be my monthly cost?

The plans listed on the spreadsheet are the currently offered plans. They may be different from a grandfathered plan that you might have. There have been a number of similarly names plans over the years and I can't guarantee that your plan is going to be the exact plan with the exact name on the spreadsheet unless it is recent. The two plans referenced in the Spreadsheet that are separate from the bundled plans are the Sprint Data Pack and the Data Premier Add-on. Data Premier requires the Sprint Data Pack to work. The Unlimited Data Pack and Data Plus Pack I have never seen in store so I am not sure what they include and don't specifically. The easiest way to tell is to load up Sprint Navigation and see if it works. IF it isn't included it will tell you that.

The HTC EVO 4G requires a $10 Premium Data add-on in addition to the Everything Data or per line it is used on. I have updated the Pone Plan Requirements page to reflect this requirement. I don't have any specific information regarding exactly what may be different yet, I probably won't until the launch of the device, once I have more clarified information the sheet will be updated again.
