Sprint Premier customers are getting a teaser email from Overland Park, Kansas. Sprint is saying that tomorrow they will “serve up something big.” While there’s no hint of what that may be, the chaps over at Gizmodo claim to be in the know: they say that Sprint will be introducing a new calling feature named ‘Sprint Any Mobile.’
The vast majority of Sprint customers have a plan that includes unlimited Sprint-to-Sprint calling. What Sprint Any Mobile is predicted to do is change that equation to unlimited mobile-to-mobile. As in your Sprint phone to any other mobile phone, on any carrier, at any time, for however long you like. Considering how many people are using their cell phones as their primary phones, this amounts to veritable unlimited calling.
So the question is: will this be an optional plan add-on, or will it replace the current Sprint-to-Sprint arrangement in some - or all - of their plans? Hopefully tomorrow we’ll find out.
Full text of the email after the break.
UPDATE: An anonymous source has confirmed for us that Sprint Any Mobile Any Time will be launching tomorrow morning, and as described above will allow for unlimited mobile-to-mobile calling, regardless of carrier. Any Mobile Any Time will only be added to the Everything Data and select business plans, so all Palm Pre owners will be set with unlimited mobile-to-mobile. Oh, and it will be a free upgrade to your plan!
We're about to serve up something big.
And you'll be among the first to know.
As a Sprint Premier customer, we want you to be among the first of our loyal customers to know about some exciting news coming soon.
In the past, we've brought you Simply Everything (SM), Right Plan Promise and ReadyNow. Sprint is ready to change the game once again.
So look for the big announcement in your Sprint Connection newsletter tomorrow morning and take your place in the wireless revolution.
You can also find out more tomorrow by simply logging onto My Sprint.
