Sprint Nextel lowers mobile-to-mobile pricing

September 10, 2009

(AP) -- Sprint is offering unlimited minutes for calls made between mobile phones as competition in wireless pricing continues to intensify.

The nation's third-largest wireless provider unveiled the "Any Mobile, Anytime" offer Thursday. Starting at $69.99 per month, users will get unlimited calling to any other mobile device in the U.S., regardless of which network it uses, along with unlimited texting and other data services.

Users get 450 monthly minutes for calls made to landline phones. For $89.99 a month, they get 900 minutes.

Overland Park, Kan.-based Corp. already offers unlimited calling to any phone for $99 a month. It also offers a $50 unlimited calling option for its Boost Mobile customers, who don't sign annual contracts.
