Sprint Unlimited Kickstart Plan Returns

Sprint Unlimited Kickstart Plan Returns

Back in June Sprint released a $15 unlimited plan that was so popular it only lasted a few days. I signed up and have been enjoying my service (it’s my second line) and to be honest can’t believe I’m only paying $15. While that deal isn’t available anymore, they have brought back the same plan, but this time with a slightly higher price.

$25 Unlimited Kickstart Plan

The current plan is the same as the one offered before. It includes:

  • Unlimited Talk
  • Unlimited Text
  • Global Roaming

The unlimited data is defined as follows:

  • Unlimited video in standard definition
  • Streaming video (up to 480p)
  • Streaming gaming (up to 2mbps)
  • Streaming music (500kbps)

Even though it isn’t $15, at the new $25 price point this is still a very good deal for unlimited. This deal has ended early each of the two times it has been offered, but as of now is scheduled to run through November 20, 2018.

Changes from Before

When they launched their $15 plan, it did not have a promotional pricing end date, however they have fixed that. Under this plan the promotional pricing is good through 1/31/2020. You can get this price when either purchasing a new phone or bringing your own. You won’t have a contract so you’ll be free to switch or change plans in 2020 when the pricing runs out.

Other Terms

Here are some of the other terms of the deal:

  • Pricing includes $5/mo/line AutoPay discount.
  • Requires eBill and new account activation.
  • Data deprioritization during congestion.

What You Need

In order to sign-up for Sprint’s $25 Unlimited Kickstart plan you need two things:

  • A compatible phone (Bring your own or buy one at full price from Sprint)
  • A number to port in

You can find out how to get started over at Sprint. Note this is postpaid service and does require a credit check. (Hard inquiry.) Also note if you have your own phone, you may also want to consider Sprint’s Free Year of Unlimited promotion.

Finding A Number to Port

When I got this plan in June, I needed to get a number elsewhere to port into Sprint since this was my second line. Luckily I read a Reddit thread where someone was able to activate a T-Mobile sim for free on their “Pay As You Go” plan and then port that number out. I was able to simply use a T-Mobile sim, activate the pay-as-you-go with no balance and then port that number to Sprint. Easy peasy.


While it can sting to not get the absolute best deal, $25 for unlimited service including Global Roaming is still a great deal if you have the need. I have found Sprint’s network to be comparable to AT&T in both coverage and speed. Both have some holes, but both seem to work most of the time.


If you are in the market for new wireless service and don’t care too much about having the fastest speed, but instead care about having unlimited service for a great price, this is the plan the consider. I do wish it was still $15 and I do wish the pricing went on forever, but that wasn’t sustainable. With all of that said, this is still a good deal for the right person.

  1. But with an ancient voice network (no conference calling, merging calls, etc,), no simultaneous voice/data is it worth it? I mean losing imessage, email, maps, and any other data application while on a call really is archaic in this day and age. Sprint is so far behind here. Even at $25 I question if it’s worth it. At $15 I’d say maybe for a standby lline. Their “global roaming” is capped at 64k. That’s really not usable for much. Simple messaging perhaps, but even emails will take ages to send or receive. Forget about uber, maps, or anything useful. (I have used it before and yes I can state with confidence that it’s useless.).

    I look forward to them actually modernizing their network and do hope they will meet their goal of VoLTE by end of 2018.

  2. Don’t make ANY mistakes when getting into Sprint. (Do what Shawn says and you should be fine ATT activated prepay with 10$ loaded- get your account number and pin set up and written down before you call Sprint. )They will deny you the promotion. Also free is still available.
