Sprint’s prepaid service, dubbed Sprint Forward, is only available in stores. Customers can pick from just two prepaid plans — a 4GB plan and an unlimited plan. Sprint Forward customers can migrate to a postpaid account without a credit check after 12 months of consecutive, on-time payments on the prepaid service.
Sprint Prepaid cell phone plans
Sprint trimmed its prepaid offerings to include just two plans:
- 4GB: $45
- Unlimited: $65
You can have up to five lines on one plan. Each line gets it’s own data allotment. Additional lines are $30 per month, per line on the 4GB plan. On the unlimited plan, the second line is $40 per month and lines 3-5 are each $30 per month.
You can save $5 per month, per account if you sign up for automatic payments. Mobile hot spot is also included with both plans but is limited to 10GB per month on the unlimited plan.
