Customers will have a choice of Samsung Montage or Kyocera Kona feature phones that are available in Walmart stores. Here are the two plans available:
- $20 per month for unlimited talk and 50 messages
- $20 per month for unlimited text and 50 minutes of voice
Besides the two plans, Walmart customers can also choose from the existing payLo $30 Talk & Text plan or the $40 Unlimited Talk & Text plan.
Angela Rittgers, vice president of marketing for Sprint's prepaid said, "The no-contract market continues to grow, most visibly with smartphones, but many customers find value with unlimited plans without the extra bells and whistles."
Wal-Mart also offers cellphone plans of other major U.S. carriers, including its own Wal-Mart Family Mobile Plan which runs on T-Mobile network. It has a range of low-priced cellphones with no-contract but with a flat monthly fee.
Sprint has other prepaid brands that includes Virgin Mobile, Boost Mobile and Assurance Wireless. PayLo by Virgin is a sub-brand that "offers affordable alternatives to long-term wireless contracts for cellphone users seeking more basic communication services." Sprint's Virgin launched payLo in 2010 through drug store chains and convenience stores as well as RadioShack and Best Buy.
