The wireless industry is so cyclical. One carrier launches something revolutionary, then the other three rush to beat it. This cycle seems to continue over and over again (particularly with the state of our economy) - great for consumers shopping for the best deal, but challenging at times to keep up with.
Enter Sprint with their new "Any Mobile, Anytime" concept. With the feature, Sprint customers can call any mobile telephone on any carrier, free of charge. I really have to give it to Sprint for coming up with a very interesting, competitive feature. I mean, think about it - who (if any) in your close friend and family circles don't have a wireless phone? I can't think of anyone on my end. What's more, the feature is included on any "Everything Data" plan, meaning that you could sign up for the 450 minute Everything Data plan for $69.99, and be virtually set. Minus a few minor restrictions, like not being able to use the service while roaming or calling internationally, the feature is quite a deal. Personally, I would have no need for the Simply Everything plan.
Way to go, Sprint - one more step on the road to improvement. Now that all of the carriers have a competitive feature, which one tickles your fancy? Verizon's Friends & Family, AT&T's A-List, Sprint's Any Mobile, Anytime, or T-Mobile's myFaves?
