The new Sprint family plan, now better known as a “Framily” plan, has been all over the place recently from TV commercials to online ads. Just like other family wireless plans and wireless plans in general it can be downright confusing to figure out if you can actually save money on these plans. The Framily plan is much different then many other family plans as you can add friends (Family + Friends = Framily) which leads to even more confusion. The great thing is even though it may be a little tricky to figure out at first there are much more opportunities to save as he major wireless companies have started to compete for your business with T-Mobile leading the shake-up.

How Much Does The Family Plan Cost?
Just like other family plans the Sprint Family Plan options can be customized to your exact needs. This means that the actual pricing can vary depending on how much data you need as well as other factors such as phones, local taxes, activation fees and more.
As you can see from the graphic the first phone on your plan will currently run you $50 per month on the Sprint Unlimited My Way Family Plan. In this plan the first phone is $50 per month, the second is $40 per month, third is $30 per month, and phones 4 through 10 are $20 per month each. Be aware that this just covers your unlimited minutes and text messages and does not include data. To add data you will pay $10 per month per line for basic phones, 1GB per line for smartphones at $20 per month, and unlimited data at $30 per line.
Are There Any Deals Available?
The deals for family plans come down more to the phones themselves than the plan. You can find savings on the phones through our promo codes section for Sprint or you can simply check the Sprint deals section on Sprint.com where they will post any discounts on phones. These deals on the phones are usually for discounted prices as well as sales and even a promo code from time to time. If you’re a new customer then you can usually find better deals available than if you’re an existing customer doing an upgrade.
What is the Sprint “Framily” Plan?
The “Framily” plan from Sprint is their new family plan open to select regions and customers. Framily in this case stands for friends and family as you can add them both to your group plan. It works by allowing you to add your family and friends to the group plan for a select amount per line. Since you allow friends onto your bill Sprint has set up the group family plans in a way that you can select who gets separate bills to pay for their share of the plan.
In this plan you get unlimited talk and text plus 1GB of data for each line. The more people that join into your “Framily” group the lower your bill can be at the end of the month. There are various plans available within this deal. When purchasing the plan and adding new family and friends you can customize everything to make it just the way you like to fit your life.
What Phones Are Available?
When you purchase a family plan you are simply getting the discounts when compared to individual plans, so the phones you can purchase do not change. This means that you can purchase all of the latest and greatest phones without having to chose from a bargain bin selection like some carriers in the past. You can purchase the iPhone with your family plan as well as other great phones from Samsung, HTC, LG and so on. If you’re a new customer there are many discounts available as previously mentioned to help you save.
Still Confused About Sprint’s Family Plan Options?
Family plans can be tough to figure out. There are dozens of different options available and the pricing can change drastically by adding just a few gigabytes of data per line. This is why if you’re still confused the best way to really figure out the pricing and what you need is to simply walk through the process. This means going to the Sprint website and just choosing the number of phones you want. The exact smartphones don’t matter as you’re not going to checkout. Next just go through the process of choosing plans as you would if you were really purchasing. This will allow you to play around with the numbers to see how much your bill will be. Try changing the data around to see the large price differences. Remember that not everyone will need unlimited data, especially if they are within WiFi range throughout the day. Going through the motions of the plan is an easy way to see how much a plan will really cost and can also help you make the decision of whether Sprint is right for you.
