Sprint improves its unlimited data plan to play with the big boys

Sprint unlimited data vs T-Mobile

Earlier this week, Verizon announced an all-new unlimited data plan that included HD video streaming and mobile tethering. Not to be outdone, T-Mobile followed suite and added those features to its flagship unlimited plan. Today, Sprint announced that it's adding HD video streaming and mobile hotspot to its unlimited data plan, which I am sure is a total coincidence and in no way an attempt to keep up with the competition.

Not even T-Mobile can touch the new deal Sprint just announced

Sprint vs T-Mobile

A report this week put Sprint's network firmly in last place among national carriers. Coverage and speed -- the only two things that really matter for a network's performance -- are awful compared to T-Mobile, Verizon and AT&T.

So to make up for the lack of network performance, Sprint is taking a page out of T-Mobile's old playbook, and slashing prices with a ridiculously good deal.

Sprint hopes this $50 unlimited data deal can bribe you onto its network

Sprint Unlimited Data Deal

Sprint has announced a temporary sale on its unlimited talk, text and data plan. For the next four days, new subscribers can get the plan for $50, down from the $60 it is normally. It's specifically designed to take on Verizon's $50 5GB plan, and on the face of it, that seems like a good deal.

Galaxy Note 7 Recall Replacement Process
Samsung’s unprecedented decision to recall all Galaxy Note 7 handsets sold to date, and to stop sales in various markets around the world, is definitely in your favor. Who wants to run around with a mobile device that might catch on fire while charging? We already told you everything you need to know about Samsung's decision, but there is a pretty big question that the company still hasn't answered: What are you supposed to do right now if you own a Galaxy Note 7?

What is LTE Advanced, and why should you care that Verizon is rolling it out?

LTE Advanced
Earlier today, Verizon announced that it's rolling out LTE Advanced to customers from coast to coast, at no additional cost to Verizon's traditional arm and leg. But in case you're tired of the carrier/uncarrier announcements about the Fastest Internet Evarr, here's what it all really means.

Sprint proves it doesn’t understand what ‘unlimited’ means

Sprint's Unlimited Plan
Sprint and T-Mobile both recently released unlimited data plans that aren't actually unlimited -- you can use a whole bunch of data, but you are limited to streaming SD-quality video and slow speeds for gaming. As part of a new plan that Sprint is offering you can now pay $20 a month more to stream video in full HD and game faster. This plan is called Unlimited Freedom Premium, which pretty much goes to show that Sprint didn't understand the meaning of the word "Unlimited" in the first place.

Watch Sprint’s CEO try to carefully avoid saying ‘we throttle video’

Sprint and T-Mobile's Unlimited Data Plan
Yesterday, T-Mobile launched a brand-new set of unlimited* data plans. At right about the same time, Sprint also announced a set of very similar data plans, and claimed that T-Mobile had "basically copied" Sprint's plans. Because this is business in the era of Trump, both CEOs then went on a mission to trash-talk each other. This resulted in Sprint CEO Marcelo Claure doing a spot on CNBC where he addressed T-Mobile's claims. But as part of the segment, Claure also answered questions about the limits on Sprint's data plans. What you're about to see is some of the most creative use of technical buzzwords to basically lie that I've seen in a while.

Struggling Sprint takes Verizon’s ‘Can You Hear Me Now’ sloppy seconds

Can You Hear Me Now Sprint
On Sunday night, the unthinkable happened. No, it wasn't when the Golden State Warriors dismantled the Cleveland Cavaliers to the tune of 110-77. And it wasn't when that crazy thing happened on Game of Thrones (no spoilers). It was when a commercial aired featuring Paul Marcarelli, best known as the "Can you hear me now?" Test Man for Verizon. But the commercial was for Sprint.

Sprint users affected by LTE connectivity bug following iOS 9.3, fix coming soon [Update]

[Update: Sprint says the issue has been resolved as of today and apologizes for the convenience.]

While Apple has fixed a few issues relating to iOS 9.3 with a subsequent iOS 9.3.1 update, there’s still at least one bug plaguing Sprint users that appears to be out of Apple’s hands. According to a handful of Sprint users across Twitter and Reddit, they have been unable to connect to LTE data following the iOS 9.3 update and are forced to use only 3G data. Today, however, Sprint acknowledged the issue and confirmed that it is working on a fix.
