Sprint Unlimited Military Plan: Six Lines For $120

+5 Deal Score
5,550 Views
Note: I'm not saying this is necessarily the very best Sprint deal out there (especially if you're a new customer switching from another carrier) but if you're an existing customer with a military background (like me) it may save you some money.

I happened to call Sprint about a minor item the other day and at the end of the conversation they mentioned I was eligible for their Unlimited Military Plan. Long story short until now I'd been paying $190/mo + taxes/fees for six lines, now under the new plan I'll only be paying $120/mo, the ONLY change was my old plan gave me 50GB LTE for mobile hotspot before reducing speeds while the new plan reduced it to only 500MB LTE for mobile hotspot - I'm more than willing to accept this if it saves me $70 month as we don't use mobile hotspot very much. The following is the text of my confirmation email:

I'm pleased to confirm your request is approved and you are now enrolled
in Sprint Works for the Sprint Unlimited Basic Plan for the Military.

The Unlimited Military Plan with savings on lines 2-6 on Unlimited Basic
Rates includes unlimited talk, text and data for up to 10 lines for:
Line 1: $60/mo.
Line 2: $20/mo.

This great pricing also includes:
Unlimited Mobile Hotspot (500MB of LTE/mo./line and 3G speeds after
that)

FYI:
Price shown with AutoPay and $20/mo. military discount on line 2 and
$10/mo. military discount on lines 3-6.
Add $5/mo./line without AutoPay.

Why would you use your hotspot for navigation? Does your car's GPS use your mobile data? Seems like a very narrow marketshare of folks who use their car's navigation but don't use Android Auto or Carplay.

Seems like a decent deal for folks who know Sprint coverage works for them and are more concerned with data usage solely on their phone vs using hotspot. If you were really committed to hotspotting, you could probably root and use a hotspot app that subverts the flag indicating that you're hotspotting.

I was on Sprint's unlimited you-only-pay taxes/fees for a year and wouldn't go back. Signal was poor in the boonies and surprisingly spotty in metro areas (Atlanta). Speed and connection quality was good when I had signal, but the small proportion of time I spent with poor signal definitely left an impression on me. I'd rather use an AT&T or VZW MVNO for a bit more $ and less data. Not available anymore but Red Pocket had a $300/yr plan that gave 10GB/month on AT&T. With 15% off on eBay, the plan works out to $21.25/month with no other fees/taxes. Haven't had issues with deprioritization and coverage is as good as hoped.

So is this for anyone that is a veteran or actve duty only? I'm now down to 3 lines and paying $175 for an old 1500 minutes unlimited plan from about 10 years ago. It was ok when I had 5 lines andnpaid about $220, but $175 is nuts for as much as we use phones and data

This is not anything new.
Sprint has had this for a while.

I was on this plan, but ended up porting out to Verizon because of its signal strength (lucky you if you live where you get good Sprint signal, but you'll most likely get what you pay for).
Even without the military discount, Sprint is currently offering 5 lines for $100.

This has been available since last summer. I have four lines @ $100, but additional lines are $10 each. Google hotspot bypass for your specific phone if you cant live with the measly 500mb.

That's only when you switch carriers, and the price goes up after a year.

FWIW, T-Mobile offers the same pricing, but without additional taxes and fees. We currently have 6 lines on our account, and our monthly bill is $120 out the door.

I tried them for a month. Pretty much no signal indoors anywhere around Tulsa,OK, or any metal buildings. My work had 0 signal inside, I have to pay $20 in taxes and fees with Sprint for the same plan, sucks but I get good signal everywhere.

New or old plan? My simple choice is 120 for 6 lines but then I have plenty of fees and taxes added.
