In its press release announcing the iPhone launch, Sprint touts its service plans offering unlimited data, a feature not offered by other U.S. iPhone carriers.

“Our unlimited data plans are the perfect fit for iPhone customers,” said Sprint CEO Dan Hesse. “Sprint’s unlimited data plans provide more value than metered plans from other carriers. Our customers can take advantage of the innovative features of iPhone without worrying about overage charges or surprises on their bill.”

Sprint's plans include unlimited data and messaging (text, photo, and video), as well as unlimited mobile-to-mobile calling to and from any mobile phone in the United States. Three different plans with varying amounts of calling time are available:

- 450 Minutes: $79.99/month
- 900 Minutes: $99.99/month
- Unlimited: $109.99/month

A mobile hotspot option is also available for $29.99 per month, offering up to 5 GB of data for hotspot services through the device, which can support up to five Wi-Fi connections simultaneously.

Arn,

Can we keep the SJ at the top section of MR for this week, and bump all news below?

Seems fitting, and nothing else compares quite honestly.

FWIW.

Here's to hoping Sprint can force at least one of the other major carriers to return to unlimited data someday. I may consider Sprint when my contract is up if they maintain these plans.

Anyways, will I be order to preorder a Sprint iPhone from Apple? That'd be ideal for me.

I think all rumours should be put on hold for a week. I'm sure they will all still be there in a weeks time to report on. Steves story should still get top spot on MR. The website should be dedicated to remembering Steve, his life and all he achieved.

I don't know about everyone else but nothing else matters right now. The gloss and buzz of a new iPhone release has been totally wiped off with this sad news :(

Steve didn't just make the products I love to use but he was also a personal inspiration to me in the philosophical way he lived his life and his success story of bringing Apple back from the brink in the last decade and turning it into the most profitable tech company in the world.

Rest in Peace Steve. Gone but never forgotten :apple:
