Cell Phone Plans by Sprint to Shake Things Up

Sprint is ready to rock the boat! With its all-new Framily cell phone plan, you are free to invite as many friends and acquaintances not to mention family members on board.  The deal you subscribe to will cost less and less as you accumulate more and more near and dear ones. It is basically a reformative pricing system. 

By adding those who are close to you, you decrease the overall payment charges for all the members of your family. Since in today’s fragmented and atomized society, friends are just as important as family, they too have been added to the list that counts as valid for the Framily Plan

“We recognize that often friends are considered to be as important as family,” said Jeff Hallock, chief marketing officer-Sprint. “What better way to ensure you can stay connected than through the Sprint Framily Plan. It allows you to share wireless savings with the group you care about the most.”

The TV ad for the Framily cell phone plan is pretty funky. With its catchy slogan of “One Big Happy Framily” it has caught the attention of so many Americans. For those who want to sign on for as much as a mere $25 per month, this is the dream package alright. A single Sprint client must shell out $55 on a monthly basis for free talk time, text messaging and one GigaByte of data. 

With each additional member in the person’s list of relatives and bosom friends, the rate goes down by five bucks. The maximum the rate can go down is by $30. Thus with seven more people sharing your Framily Plan, you will be charged $25 only. All we can say is that in the journey from Family to “Framily”, Sprint has come a long way.

“The Sprint Framily Plan redefines the way we think of family plans and gives our customers the power to decide who will be a part of their group and gain greater savings as more members are added,” said Dan Hesse, Sprint CEO. “Sprint continues to be a leader in offering customers choice, flexibility and value. The Sprint Framily Plan makes Sprint the best choice for families and friends.”
