Want in on the biggest secret in cellphone savings? Here it is. You can get a year — yes, a full twelve months — of free unlimited data service when you switch to Sprint and bring your eligible cellphone.

New customers will receive a year of free calls, texts and unlimited data — a savings of $50 a month (Sprint’s current cost for a line of unlimited data) or $600 a year. And when you compare Sprint’s deal against the major carriers’ unlimited data plans the difference in cost is impressive. (All prices below include an auto-pay discount.)

  • Verizon Go Unlimited Plan: 1 line $75/month. Savings: $900/year
  • AT&T Unlimited Data Plus Plan: 1 line $90/month. Savings $1,080/year
  • T-Mobile ONE Unlimited Data Plan: 1 line $70/month. Savings $840/year

How Sprint’s FREE Unlimited data deal works

Anyone who switches to Sprint and brings his or her eligible smartphone, can get up to five free lines of unlimited data for a year. Keep your phone and number, all you have to do is purchase a new SIM card which costs $2.99 plus $10 shipping & handling fee. (Not sure how SIMs work? No worries, we’ve got an easy guide to help you out). Plus the $30 activation fee is waived. This offer is available for a limited time.

The finer print …

  • The free year of service expires Oct. 31, 2018, when you’ll be charged $60 a month for the first line, $40 a month for the second line, and $30 a month for each additional line. (For a family of four, count on paying $160 a month.)
  • You must own your phone in full and only eligible phones qualify for this offer (qualifying devices are listed below).
  • Auto-pay enrollment is required.
  • SIM card ($2.99) purchase is also required. (There’s a $10 shipping and handling fee if you order online.)
