There is documentation that shows Sprint jumping into the prepaid phone market. While there are options available now even with Boost Mobile, a subsidiary of Sprint, it’s interesting to note that starting January 25th this new service will kick into play. Sprint has not officially announced this as of today but documentation meant for employees has been shared on the web. The phones available for this service are not spectacular and the flagship models (Samsung Galaxy SIII, Galaxy Note II, etc) cannot be used with this new service.
If you choose this route, you will be charged the for phone (no contract to sign) and will need to pay $70/month for unlimited web, text and talk – not really a bargain. The biggest difference is that Boost and others slow your access to 2G speeds after 2.5GB of data. Sprint does not look like it will do this.
Stay tuned for more information as it becomes available.
