Sprint, Best Buy Team Up For 1 Year Free Student Service
by Karl Bode 04:23PM Monday Nov 18 2013 Tipped by Technicholas
Sprint and Best Buy are coming together to offer students 12 months of free talk, text, and data on Sprint’s Unlimited, My Way plan -- if customers buy a new smartphone from Best Buy. Any student can apparently qualify for the plan, whether they're enrolled in elementary school or college (you have to verify your student status online
within 14 days of activation). According to Sprint, the promotion runs from November 11, 2013 through January 4, 2014, and more detail is available over at this FAQ
According to the FAQ, users can get another 12 months of free service
if they refer another student to the promotion under the same account. The catch? The prices students have to pay for devices
are effectively unsubsidized.
Unlimited 8 kbps That should solve Sprint's congestion issues.

Re: Not unlimited data
said by compuguybna:So, do they tax the whole $70, or just the $10 unlimited data add on plus the fees?
taxes, fees, and surcharges are about 15.6% of the bill. more charges apply than these listed below.

Other monthly charges apply including up to $2.50 Admin. & .40 Reg. fee per line.**

Re: OH MY..
said by linicx:I think you might be thinking of the Iphone 4... the GSM (att) version of the Iphone 4 was released June 24, 2010, while the CDMA (sprint/verizon) version was released February 10, 2011.
The iPhone 4S 8G emerged in 2009/10 as AT&T had it long before Verizon or Sprint.
The 4S was relased on October 14, 2011 and both the GSM and CDMA versions were released.
said by linicx:The first Iphone to support LTE was the Iphone 5, which was released September 21, 2012... so the Iphone 4S does not support LTE... only GSM/CDMA.
The 4S does work well in 3G/WiFi, and probably in 4G areas but I would not bet the farm it will ride on LTE.
Features in ios7 by device are listed here for reference:
The only carrier service difference is that the at&t iphones can do simultaneous voice and data, while the sprint/verizon ones can't.
The Iphone 5S was released September 20, 2013 and does support LTE.
