Sprint Picks On The Competition For Shaky Definitions Of “Unlimited”

As it turns out I’m not the only one who thinks the use of the word “unlimited” is getting out of hand in the marketing game these days. Sprint is ready to pick a fight with the competition by calling out their misuse of the word through at least one marketing effort as shown by this commercial. I’ll let you watch it for yourself and decide if Sprint is making a valid point or if this is just fluff marketing. What say you?

    Cot DAMN! That commercial is tough. Sprint still shitty though :

  • CRT24

    Sorry, but I just realized that this commercial is comparing its everything data plan to the other companies unlimited plans…..so let me get this strait, Sprint puts out this ad criticizing other companies because they claim unlimited but Sprint only focuses on the data and fails to say in the commercial that you actually only have 450 minutes to other phones besides mobile phones?? Someone please tell me how this is not a better example of false advertising by Sprint because they are actually limiting the quantity of minutes that you get with this plan but calling it unlimited. This is a far more egregious use of the word unlimited and the ad is disingenuous as best.

    what good is having unlimited with sprint if there service sucks so bad? my buddys phone and u cant even get past 1mbps lol. when i was pulling 6mbps with my 4g for tmobile. lol he had the evo shift 4g at that time. i guess it just depends on where u live to figure out which company to go with. sprint or tmobile. plus tmobile can go up to 10gb a month which is a lot of data. most people probably dont come close to that. i would never get at&t or verizon cause they charge to much and dont have unlimited data so they can suck one. i love my tmobile and they got the best coverage for 4g or hspa+. i can careless about LTE since its only in a few states if that.

    Read the Sprint terms and conditions.  It’s true that Sprint offers unlimited 4G data without caps or throttling.  I just hope your lucky enough to live in a 4G area.  Once your riding the 3G bandwagon, they reserve the right to throttle after 5GB.  I think T-Mobile is structured best.  Not only can you choose how much high speed data you really need, but you also don’t have to worry about facing overages or getting your data connection completely turned off.

    My question is what happens after the merger? They say their network will expand and service will improve. But as a t-mobile customer, will my throttling go away, or will Sprint do the hypocrite dance and begin following their example?

    Well as coincidence would have it, T-Mobile sent me an e-mail saying that since I have been a loyal customer since 2004 that I should switch to the contracted unlimited plans, $80 for the first line, $60 for the 2nd line, which is $10 more than what I am paying on my EM+ plan.

    Interestingly, here is the faded gray fine print in the e-mail.  It’s one long paragraph.  I will break it down and post the interesting stuff (and since this answers many questions people have had in here).

      I’m confused as to whether you even like T-Mobile or.not? A lot of the stuff you post is how T-Mobile is falsely advertising, you have a problem with T-Mobile’s use of the word “unlimited”, or you have an issue with the buyers remorse policy…….you say you have T-Mobile service but all you do is point out this stuff about T-Mobile but say nothing about the other carriers practices which in some cases are worse……Just like your earlier response to this Sprint commercials you are calling out T-Mobile for having to explain unlimited relating to their data plans but the plan that Sprint is highlighting in the ad doesn’t even have unlimited minutes even though the ad indicates that it does yet you say nothing about that. Seems to me your issues with questionable business practices is pretty selective and Every company has fine print disclaimers so not sure what point you are trying to make by posting this??

    I’ve been with Sprint for 2 1/2 weeks now. I live in NJ just outside of Philly. According to Sprints network coverage map I should get great 3G service and good 4G service. So, I got the EVO 3D. It’s a cool phone except that my signal strength ranges from Zero bars to 1 bar all around town. I talked with Sprint and they said there is nothing wrong with the towers in my area. They had me try some software adjustments with the phone. Nothing has changed. A lot of people on the Sprint boards are having the same issue. It’s either an EVO 3D issue or the Sprint service or a combo of both. I’m not sticking around to find out. I’m bailing before my 30 days is up.  I’m sorry that I ever left T-Mobile. I just a got a letter in the mail from T-Mobile yesterday saying if I come back I can have any phone of my choice for free. I’m coming back!

    • ewc

      Thanks for the heads up TJ. I live in center city philly and considered swtiching to sprint (ATT-Mobile merger and dis-satifaction with customer service) once my contract is up. I may have to look towards Verizon or stick with TMO now.
       
      PS- I know a couple people who have sprint, but they dont have any issues (they have the Pre and BB Curve)

      • Anonymous

        EWC, go ahead and try Sprint. You do have the 30-day no strings attached return policy. It’s always worth the try. I use Sprint. I actually have the EVO 3D. (Came from a Palm Pre.) Frankly, I haven’t dropped a call yet. It has been a wonderful phone. And, while there’s 4G service in my area, I seldom use it because the phone is so snappy with the dual-core processor. It may be JT’s phone, or his NJ area or another factor or a combination of any of those. Always be aware that there are certain environmental issues that can affect your service. If you live in an area with heavy trees/forest, are surrounded by water, someone around you is using a “repeater” of some sort that can boost their service, but negatively affect yours, etc. (You would be surprised with how many people have those repeaters. They are readily available online.) So, while two people use the exact same phone, but use it a mile apart, they may have vastly different experiences with that same phone. So, while there may be an issue in NJ, you may not have that issue in Central Philly.

    • Gm Aharrington1

      It’s with the Evo 3D. Has nothing to do with Sprint. HTC needs to address the issue. Contact them and let them know about it. There is a fix but, I don’t know it. I will never go to VZW if merger does go through. Extremely OVERPRICED network! Had more issues with them when company had their service than any other carrier. Hey Verizon!, puts phone under cheeks and lets one fly, “can you hear me now?” Good, that’s what I think about you.

    T-Mobile was falsely advertising but now their data plans are not confusing because it says “5GB of high speed data.”  Sprint is the only carrier who actually got the “unlimited” right.  Unlimited should be without limit, not slowing you down.  I know I’m gonna get bashed for saying but I’m gonna say it.. T-Mobile is going down hill and loosing a lot of customers.  They were once the carrier everyone had and everyone was happy.  That is not the case anymore.  Sprint was once crap and now everyone wants Sprint.  I feel bad what once was a good company has changed so much.  If the AT&T merger doesn’t go through then its only a matter of time before someone else gets their hands on T-Mobile.  They’ll never be the same.  

    • CRT24

      Really, they got it right?? The plan they advertise as unlimited doesn’t even have unlimited calling minutes as they would lead you to believe….if they really wanted to bash other carriers for advertising “truly unlimited” then they need to use their everything unlimited plan which is 99.99 but they won’t do that because that price doesn’t look as good as the 79.99 they are trying to pass off as unlimited…..wake up people!

      I agree with you about the advertised ‘unlimited’ by TMobile. It’s pure crap. I’ve been with TMobile since 2002 if you can believe it and I’ve seen there service initially improve but they have steadily decline in my opinion. It isn’t 4G. Its more like 3 1/4 G if that. Unlimited means - restricted in terms of number, quantity, or extent. That is not so. Then don’t advertise it as that. All the carriers are confusing people with this 3G, 4G wording. 

      They wonder why they are losing customers. Firstly, the exec where smoking something in the boardroom when they first announced that people didn’t want high end phones so they will go for the low/mid end range. Secondly, they aim towards pre-paid customers and in my hood is ghetto. That is the image TMobile has unfortunately. Now that they are practically one step in the grave they decide lets put high end product out…Sensation 4G. Slide 4G, Slate. Its a bit late don’t you think….

      I probably would have left TMo a long time ago but I’m grandfathered in with my plan 2003 that I’ll keep it until they(At&t) kill it. But I’ve never used 1200 mins. I mean most days I’m at work and its free after 9pm and weekends so I’ve never had this problem.

    I will give Sprint credit. They are playing this buy out brilliantly. They come to “our”defense and try to block it. Like it or not, the commercial is true. If they had a better handset line up, they would be my choice after we get gobbled up. They have a bit of the underdog mentality that I am used to with T-Mobile. True, the network is lacking in some areas but so is the one I am currently using. If you have T-Mo, be honest…the network is lacking. I live in San Diego and am rarely at 4G and in home is only usable with Wi-Fi. To make matters worse, I have the G2X !!!. It seems that since the news broke about AT&T…T-Mo HAS adopted some bad business practices.
    I love ‘em but I see the writing on the wall and I will walk before they make me run.

    Sprint service sucks, their phones are crap 4g coverage is limited even in the most dense urban areas. When their 4g is connected its slow. I have a g2x that powercycles once a week. I’ll choose that anyday over an evo that powercycles everytime it boots up.

    How ironic since Virgin Mobile, owned by Sprint, will start slowing data speeds over 2.5gb starting this fall.

    It’s funny b/c I just looked on Sprint Website and it says with the Unlimited Eveything plan.  you only get 450 day time mintues smh.. lairs lair lairs Sprint is… That’s why they don’t make profits.

    • Richard

      It says on their site those minutes are for landline calling moron. They obviously make a profit if they have these lairs you speak of.

      • Dgfj

    it’s funny b/c you only get 450 day time mintues on your unlimited everything plan with sprint.  I will blow through that in like a week.  smh THat’s why I love T-mobile, Best plans in the industry.  But Unlimited will no longer be.  I don’t why we still have it here.  In Europe there’s no such thing as unlimited there.

    • Dnw509

      in that 450 minutes you get 300 minutes roll over so that’s 750
      and u can call any mobile fone from any carrier without using ur minutes….. so unless all ur hommies got land lines well ull blow it ..

    As a T-mobile employee, I can honestly say that if it weren’t for the fact that I’m broke & my employee plan is cheap, I would sign up for Sprint just for finally calling us out on our crappy use of the word unlimited. That has been driving me so crazy side the first commercial. Maybe this will make marketing rethink their blatant dishonesty so I can get yelled at a little less throughout the day.

    Have you tried Sprint’s 3G??? Have you found Sprint’s 4G????????? Their 3G is slower then a turtle, no kidding and their Wimax (4G) footprint has not increased in over a year and a half. I would much rather have T-Mobile’s 4G (very fast in my area) wifi calling is FREE. and 5 GB is plenty of data IMO the Bottom line is T-Mobile has the BEST PLANS.

    I havent posted in awhile. 
    I STILL LOVE MEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE THOUGH! 

  • wellthen

    People keep saying sprint isnt really unlimited because of the minutes but come on,the 450 only apply to landlines. Its FREE mobile to mobile,and lets be honest, we all have cellphones and probably barely call landlines.
