If you’re a Sprint customer using the company’s Everything Data Plan, you can now call any mobile phone on any network without using up any of your plan minutes. Good news? If you’re on the carrier’s $70 a month plan, which has 450 included minutes along with unlimited data service, it could be — if you don’t roam into areas where there’s no Sprint coverage (where the meter will start running) and if you have a lot of regular contacts on other cell networks.
Of course, for an extra $30 a month, Sprint will give you unlimited calls to everyone, everywhere — and other carriers, including Sprint-owned Boost Mobile — offer unlimited plans for as little as $50 a month. But if you’re a diehard Sprinter (there must be some of you out there) and need to spend hours on the phone with folks on AT&T, Verizon or other cell networks, it could work out in your favor.
