Sprint AnyMobile tomorrow
Sprint could be on the verge of offering a near-unlimited calling plan for it subscribers, a late-breaking rumor claims. A tip sent to TechVI maintains that a known Sprint launch tomorrow will give those with at least an Everything Data plan of $70 per month or more will get unlimited calling between themselves and a cellphone on any other network. The only limitation is a requirement for making the call on Sprint's own network rather than while roaming.
The plan gets significant support from the existence of an official Sprint sub-site known as AnyMobile that has yet to fully launch.
A plan of the sort would be a sharp blow against other carriers as it would give Sprint one of the least expensive plans for effectively unlimited service, as the Everything Data plan already includes unlimited Internet use, messaging and GPS mapping. Unlimited service on Sprint previously started at $100 and was already one of the least expensive plans in the US.
