Sprint Announces Cheaper Wireless Plans for Nextel Direct Connect Customers
      #32454 - 01/22/09 03:23 PM

Sprint today announced new pricing plans targeted at its business customers who have Nextel Direct Connect services. The new plans provide unlimited Direct Connect, Group Connect, Mobile-to-Mobile, Text Messaging and Picture Mail, starting at $29.99 per month. Here is more info on the new Nextel Direct Connect plans from Sprint:

With other mobile providers, a business is asked to choose a plan based on monthly anytime voice minutes required per user and then pay incrementally for features such as push-to-talk, text messaging and picture mail. While this approach makes sense for consumers, businesses use mobile communications tools differently and need plans to address the fact that most communication occurs between workgroup members. With Nextel Direct Connect Custom Plans, the focus is on key services used most by workgroups, which are bundled with unlimited usage, at a low flat monthly rate. A business can then attach a bucket of anytime voice minutes to be shared with the entire workgroup.

Specifically, businesses can choose from the following Nextel Direct Connect Custom Plans:

* Unlimited Workgroup Communications -- with unlimited Direct Connect and Group Connect(R) plus unlimited text messaging, mobile-to-mobile minutes and night and weekend minutes starting at 9 p.m. o $29.99 per month per line.

* Web & Navigation -- includes the above features, plus unlimited data, Web browsing and GPS navigation o $39.99 per month per line for Nextel phones. o $49.99 per month per line for PowerSource and Nextel Direct Connect capable Sprint phones.

* Pooled voice minutes can be added to either plan for the group to share o 500 minutes for $30 per month per line. o Or 2,000 minutes for $100 per month per line.
