- The Sprint Kickstart plan from earlier in the summer is back.
- If you switch from another carrier to Sprint, you can get unlimited talk, text, and data for $25 per month.
- There are some notable caveats to the plan listed below, but overall this is a great deal for those that just need a simple plan.
The deal lasted for only a week before it vanished, but now Sprint is bringing it back, albeit for $10 more than the previous offer, per USA Today.
Starting tomorrow, Friday, August 24, until next Thursday, August 30, you can take advantage of the Kickstart offer exclusively at Sprint.com. Just like in June, the offer will not be available in stores, so don’t bother trying to visit one to sign up.
To be clear, this Kickstart offer does not get you all the perks of Sprint’s typical unlimited plans. These are the caveats:
- Your data is unlimited while you’re on the Sprint network (i.e., roaming charges could occur)
- Mobile hotspot is not included
- Video streaming is only available in standard definition
- Music streams at up to 500Kbps
- Games stream at up to 2Mbps
- Calls are unlimited within the U.S. only
- Texts are unlimited both to and from the U.S. and other select countries
Some of those might be deal-breakers for you (the lack of hotspot is an automatic deal-breaker for me, personally), but if you’re looking for an incredibly cheap way to connect a secondary phone or child’s device to a mobile network, you really can’t beat $25 per month.
As stated up top, to be eligible for this plan you must port a phone number from another carrier to Sprint. You also must bring your own compatible phone or buy a phone outright from Sprint (i.e., pay-in-full immediately, no installment plans).
Finally, switching to Sprint will require a credit check, which can sometimes take a while, depending on your situation. The last time Sprint ran this sale many people missed out because their credit check took longer than the time left in the promotion. So if this offer works for you, don’t delay – sign up ASAP so you’re not left in the cold.
You might also be wondering what will happen with this deal if and when the proposed merger with T-Mobile happens. Sprint’s Dow Draper says that he imagines the joint companies would make the “customer-friendly choice” and support the plan for the duration of the life of the line, but he couldn’t give any guarantees.
We will update this article tomorrow with a link to the sign-up page for this offer. In the meantime, get ready to switch if this plan works for you!
