Sprint has again introduced a new plan called as shared data plan for the Virgin mobile prepaid service through the Wall-Mart stores. This plan is offering unlimited minutes and texts with different data packages at different prices. Virgin is going to offer the new shared data plan this coming Saturday through its Wall-Mart stores.
The prices of the shared data plan is as follows: 2 lines consisting of 4GB is priced at $65 per month, 3 lines with 8GB data is priced at $90 and the 4 lines with 12GB data is priced at $115 per month.
Usually the prepaid customers tend to buy a wireless service in every month by paying in advance but according to Sprint, this is the first plan for prepaid customers that is coming with no contract.
Jayne Wallace who is the spokesperson of Sprint has announced that the Shared data plan is the advanced version of custom plan that were introduced in the last year in July. This custom plan is little complex which offered unlimited data, text and calls to a family. The family was able to add or reduce the data, calls and text that they are using in the month. At the end of the month the reduction in every feature was credited in the next month’s bill and the increased bill needed to be paid by the credit card immediately.
Wallace also said that the main reason of introducing the shared data plan is that the prepaid customers are eager to know that how much they will be able to spend and about the service they will receive. The difference of this two plans are in the data that the line shares. Rest part like text and calls in the shared plan are unlimited like custom plan.
Similarly the Family plan of Sprint was ended due to its complexity which gave discount to the customer if they can bring new customers to sprint.
