Oh boy. Sprint just made a doozy of an announcement by introducing Any Mobile, Anytime. Any Mobile, Anytime allows for your Sprint phone to call any mobile phone (be it from AT&T, Verizon, or T-Mobile) for free at any time of the day. It's basically free mobile-to-mobile for any mobile phone in the US.
What's even better is that Any Mobile, Anytime will be offered for free to 'Everything Data' customers which basically means any Sprint smartphone user with a data plan will be able to take advantage of this offer. No added fees, no hidden charges. Those 'Everything Data' plans (which start at $69.99) are looking like a wonderful deal: unlimited calls to any mobile phone, unlimited data, unlimited SMS, unlimited MMS, Sprint TV, etc--our friends at PreCentral.net are obviously happy.
So if you're shopping for a Hero, Sprint made it that much easier to jump ship. We're just saying.
