Starting tomorrow, June 8th, Sprint will be offering an unlimited LTE data plan for just $15/month plus taxes and fees.  Sprint is calling the deal "Unlimited Kickstart." While the deal may not be as good as when Sprint gave away unlimited data for free last year, it is still something to behold.  For a limited time, Sprint will have the cheapest unlimited data plan on the market.

Offer Details

The plan will of course include unlimited talk and text to go along with the unlimited LTE data.  The unlimited data won't be subjected to temporary data throttling after a certain amount of high speed data is consumed in a month.  It will however be subjected to temporary data throttling at any point in time that the carrier network becomes congested.

Unfortunately Sprint's unlimited data plan won't include any mobile hotspot. Video streaming will be limited to a maximum resolution of 480p.  Music streaming will be limited to a maximum of 500Kbps, and gaming streams will be limited to 2 Mbps.

In order to qualify for the promotional rate you will have to port in from another carrier.  No word on if porting in from a Sprint MVNO will be allowed but you can certainly give it a try.  (Update 6/12/18- Several readers have reported that the deal is not available to you if you are coming from a Sprint MVNO.) The offer is expected to be available for a limited time lasting just a few weeks.  (Update 2, this offer is set to end on Friday, June 15th, at 11:59 pm EST.) It will only be available online and over the phone.  It is not available in stores. (Update 3, for a limited time starting August 24, 2018 unlimited kickstart is back. )

I know why that site is down right now.. There was a huge typo… I caught it and now I’m either getting free service, or winning a lawsuit

Alas, I gave Sprint my Tello IMEI and got back, Sprint service already activated.

This is such a good deal for me, that I am tempted to get an AT&T MVNO service (my phone is unlocked and compatible with Sprint, Tmo, AT&T) and number just to switch back to Sprint. Do you see any reason that wouldn’t work?

Do IMEIs change with a new sim card, or a new provider?

I wonder if this is intended to woo would-be Sprint customers back after the news this spring about Sprint & T-Mobile merging (and eventually going GSM-only), if they can get the FCC’s OK? I’m currently on a super-cheap Red Pocket “eBay special” plan, which is cheaper than this ($69/360 days), but with much smaller buckets (100/100/500MB); it’s adequate most of the year, but not quite enough data during the summer months, with all of the vacation travel & college road trips our family is on then.

Very nice indeed, if they’ll let me, I’ll be porting from Tello (and I really like Tello), where $14 + taxes was getting me 1Gb + unlimited/unlimited.
