It appears that Sprint’s Black Friday special offer for families or groups was a hit, because the wireless carrier has decided to extend the deal. There is no word yet on how long it will be extended, but it is a good bet it will only be for a limited time. For those not familiar with this promo, basically it offers five lines of service featuring unlimited voice calls, text messaging, and 4G LTE data for the price of just two lines, as long as customers avail of an Unlimited Freedom family plan, and port at least one line of service from another mobile operator.
Moreover, all of the five lines of service of the family plan need to be new activations, and all must be under Sprint’s new Unlimited Freedom plan with Auto Pay. In this family plan promo, customers will be able to enjoy five unlimited lines of service for just a hundred dollars every month -- that is $60 for the first line of service, $40 for the second one, and the third, fourth, and fifth lines of service offered absolutely free of charge. Those who avail of this deal right now can expect the pricing to remain until January 31st of 2018. Beyond that date, the pricing of their plans will revert back to the normal rates.
For customers who do manage to stick to their five line plan through 2018, they will be paying the standard price of $190 a month, which means that the third, fourth, and fifth line of service will each be priced at $30 a month, on top of the previous $100 monthly price. Still, it might be comforting for them to know that they will be able to bring their own compatible handset to this deal, which means that they will not have to purchase a new smartphone or be tied to an installment plan.
Apart from the unlimited voice calls, text messaging, and use of high speed data, Sprint’s Unlimited Freedom option also comes with international text messaging, 2G data roaming worldwide, and 5 gigabytes of mobile hotspot use every month. It should be noted though streaming and gaming are optimized for this plan, meaning that video content will be limited to 480p plus, music to 500 kbps, and gaming to 2 mbps.
