Sprint Testing Unlimited Calling & Data Plan

Sprint Nextel is testing an unlimited plans in San Francisco Bay Area that features unlimited call time, text messages and Internet access on a mobile phone for $120 a month, reports AP. While not inexpensive, the unusual approach to pricing wireless service could carry profound consequences for the industry if it proves popular and Sprint Nextel decides to roll it out nationally, the story says.
There are some regional carriers and niche service providers offering unlimited plans, but Sprint’s plan appears to be the first mainstream wireless offering of this sort in the U.S. The company wouldn’t say how long it plans to offer the unlimited bundle in the Bay Area, or when a decision might come on a wider trial or rollout.
The potential savings from the bundle would depend on the cost of the calling plan a user is switching from. Sprint already offers unlimited text messaging packages starting at $10 a month and unlimited data plans starting at $15 a month.
