Here are the details about our great deals: Get a new iPad on us when you activate a new phone line on an Unlimited Plus or Basic plan.11 The first 10 people through the door who activate a new line (new or existing accounts) with Sprint on Basic or Plus will receive a $50 MasterCard®Prepaid card.

Along with Hulu, Unlimited Plus includes the Tidal music service, with music streaming up to 1.5 Mbps. A second line costs $50 and following lines are $30.

Rather than simply raising the prices of their plans, though (as AT&T did in June), Sprint's approach is a bit more nuanced. Music and gaming are throttled to 500Kbps and 2Mbps, respectively.

To be clear, Sprint's pricing now largely lines up with T-Mobile's Unlimited One plan, which provides one line of service for $70 per month and four lines of service for $160 per month.

The arrival of Sprint's new unlimited plans means the end of one of the carrier's better offers, though. "They have different needs". And video streaming is capped at 1080p HD. Sprint intends to continue to tailor plans so that customers can get the best choice for them.

To celebrate the launch of these wonderful plans, Sprint is offering an incredible limited-time promotion for Unlimited Plus.

Hamilton stages dramatic comeback but Vettel wins
A slow start cost him places to Vettel and Bottas before Raikkonen ran into his rear and was given a 10-second time penalty. Hamilton has won his home race for the past four years, and five times in total, and starts on pole position.

But Sprint also added a "limited time" promotion that cuts the price to $50 to $100 per month for customers who buy a new phone or bring their own device. Hulu is included, but not Tidal. Instead, Sprint is running a promo for 5-lines and is doing an average price-per-line of $42. You get unlimited talk, text, and data, 480p video streaming, 500MB of hotspot, 5GB of roaming data to Canada/Mexico, and a Hulu limited commercials account. It also comes with Hulu and 5 GB of roaming data in Canada and Mexico. Mobile hotspot users will get 15GB of high-speed data connectivity per month. If you travel overseas to Canada or Mexico, you'll get unlimited talk and text, and 5GB of high-speed data.

Sprint's new "Unlimited Plus" plan costs $70 per month for one line of service or $180 for four lines of service, though customers can get a $20 per month discount on each line of service if they bring their own phone or buy one outright.

The only silver lining is the volume pricing: Unlimited Freedom now works out to $36 for five lines, while Unlimited Basic is $32 per line for five lines. "We're offering unbeatable value on our award-winning network".
