    Kickstart unlimited $25/month

    Anyone else on this plan? I just got mine activated Friday. Using my old iPhone 6 (for whatever reason, Sprint said my 4 other unlocked phones weren't eligible ). I've been running around backroads where I know coverage is weak (non existent on TM ) and had service the entire time. Data speeds are just enough to use maps, watch video, etc. Basically 12-20mbps down. Better than Xfinity Mobile which I'm about to drop because it has become worthless. Figure it's worth a try at $25 and no contract. If it doesn't work out for me then I'll stay with US Cellular.

    We have 1 line on the current plan and 3 grandfathered on the same plan from last year. Works fine. I don't think paying more would improve the service any. I'm waiting for fall because our service significantly improves once the leaves fall off but it's very useable and unlimited everything for that price is awesome.

    Do you know if the extended network coverage works with this plan? I'm in NH and I believe Sprint uses us Cellular for extended coverage.

    Yes - it is the same as Postpaid coverage.

    Well, since you are making pointless "corrections", there is no such thing as "KickStarter" (except in the context of fund-raising).

    The name of the Sprint plan is Kickstart.

    No it is not and has never been included in KickStart.

    Here is a Ting offer that includes mobile hotspot (but the price
    may increase sharply at year end) : https://start.ting.com/20for20/

    I signed up for the Kickstart plan last week and I have to say Iím pretty impressed with the service. Iím in the Chicago suburbs and work downtown in Chicago and Iíve had no issues thus far. Not bad for $25 a month. Hotspot isnít an issue for me since I have a Verizon work phone that has the ability to hotspot when needed.

    They bought out us Cellular there and ended up with a ton of their PCS spectrum and towers

    It shows. Over the weekend I pulled download speeds over 300mbps. Upload speeds still lagging but I donít even pull these speeds with Verizon.

    Sprint can definitely do great speeds despite their bad rap.

    They have definitely upped their game. The one area that is weak in my estimation is the call quality. I definitely
    notice a difference having come over from AT&T. Kinda has a tinny sound. Iím on an iPhone 8 Plus.

    You must not have VoLTE yet in your area. It is on in most of the country. In the case of iPhones, it works on iPhone 8 and up.
