    Sprint just pre-announced their newest 4G data plans for tablets. The new plans will become available on November 11th. This was probably timed purposefully to coincide with the release of the new iPad 4, the iPad Mini and the newer Android tabs coming out, like the rumored Nexus 10 from Samsung. The new plans actually run about the same price as the plans from AT&T and Verizon, but Sprint always tries to provide extra value for their customers, so the difference is that you get more data for these plans at a similar price. Here's the press release below with the details in bold,

    Looks like it, soon there will be no more unlimited data, the all you can eat buffet is closing shop, the new "big greedy corporation buffet" opening soon at a location near you.

    Not necessarily.
    This is labeled strictly for tablets
    Does not say it affects phone data plans in any way

    If they keep phone plans like they are now, unlimited
    and keep the tablet data plans separate, it's not all that bad.

    so unless there is fine print we are not seeing that targets all products in Sprints lineup
    lets not be hasty and rush to assume they are doing what VZW and ATT have done

    I was sitting and thinking this is the same model VZW and ATT used. Same pathway same road. Lol Sprint has had some good news of late. I hope that's not coming to an end. Bloomberg report said they had lost a boat load of customers this last quarter.

    Did you really expect unlimited data to last forever? I don't.

    It says specifically for 4g lte enabled tablets so it does not affect phone data.
