Sprint's Really Good Deal-If You're Family

Last we noted that Sprint's Half-Off plans were expiring and that some alternatives were a bit cheaper than Sprint's current plans.  There's always a Sprint fan out there to remind us that Sprint does offer some outstanding prices...if you qualify.  How to qualify?  Go have kids.  Or better, get a group of friends and family together and go in for a Sprint "family" plan.  If you get 2 lines of service, the price comes out to $100, and they'll throw in the 3rd, 4th and 5th line for FREE!

Why doesn't Sprint advertise the fact that this is a $20 per line plan?  I'll tell you why.  This sets the precedent that customers will then expect more $20 per month plans, and no carrier wants to go down that path.  Even though that's where we're heading, anyway, no carrier wants to be accused of what our elders call "pissing in the whiskey."

Fortunately, most carriers are pretty loose about defining "family", so round up your homeys, they don't even need to be in the same state, and start singing, "We are family..."  No need to plan Thanksgiving dinner together...just call.
