I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Influence Central for Sprint. I received product samples to facilitate my review and a promotional item to thank me for my participation.
First off I have to admit that I have been a customer of another cell phone company for over ten years. I am honestly going to be switching to Sprint in the next month. I just have to line up details on our new phones, etc before doing so. I was so impressed with Sprint that I came home with a strong desire to learn more about the new technology in my area and in Chicago. There is a ton of interesting and fun stuff happening in Illinois with Sprint. If Sprint can change my mind and make a new customer than I am sure that they can change yours too!
There was so much that I wanted to share with you that I am sure that you are going to see more posts in the future. However for today I wanted to share 5 facts that every mom needs to know with you.
On Tuesday I traveled through traffic early in the morning to reach the Sprint office in downtown Chicago.
I managed to park better in reverse than I do going forward…not quite sure how this one happened.
Enjoyed a nice espresso and chia shot when I was waiting for it to be the right time.
And then headed up the elevator to attend this special blogger event.
Fact #1 — Sprint is Making Leaps and Bounds with Service
Sprint is becoming a leader in service in the Chicago area. They offer a new technology called carrier aggregation that is available in Chicago. This means insanely quick speeds!
In the central Illinois area, where I am from, there used to not be service available. Well since I have received my phone I have found that it works just fine. In fact in some places I have been the Sprint service works better! I have been completely happy with the service the entire time. While I was attending this exciting event I did learn that 51 new sites were bought from US Cellular in my area. Only 9 of these needed to be built.
Fact #2 — Sprint Has Options For Every Family
While Sprint service might not be the right choice for everyone, there are a number of pre-paid services that are owned by Sprint. Did you know that Sprint owns 4 different lines of pre-paid products? I did not know this before I traveled to the Sprint Chicago mom blogger event.
Sprint prepaid plans are perfect for those who want Sprint service but have credit issues.
After 9 months of continued service, you can graduate to the right service. This will help you to get where you want to go.
Boost Mobile really got going in 2008 as one of the first companies to offer full service to families who needed to cut costs with a prepaid plan.
Plans are priced at just $35, $45, and $55 per month.
They also offer the only prepaid WiFi Hotspot.
This means that you can use it for traveling and then not use it again when you are at home. All of this is able to be used without penalty or additional fees.
The Virgin Mobile Data Done Right line is a new special line that is only available at Wal Mart.
This is the perfect prepaid plan for families. You can actually assign different levels of data and other things per line. This allows you to be able to decide who deserves data and how much everyone can have. The pricing for this is also great in that 2 lines with unlimited talk and text and 6 GB of data is just $55 per month.
The Virgin Mobile Plans are like the ones from Boost Mobile and Sprint which are available at the three tier pricing of $35, $45, and $55.
Fact #3 — You Can Get EVERY SINGLE NEW iPhone!!!
Another thing that you should know is that Sprint offers you a new plan that allows you to lease your iPhone instead of buying it. This might sound like something that would be expensive but instead it is something that just costs a reasonable $15 per month. So if you are getting a new iPhone every year it is cheaper than buying one! Plus it means that you never have to skip a generation of iPhone like I currently do now with my current plan.
Fact #4 — You Can Get the Latest Technology
You are going to be able to take advantage of the latest technology with the newest phones! The LG G4 is one of those phones. I have been checking this phone out for the past few days and I am enjoying it. I am especially enjoying the beauty of the design on this phone.
The handcrafted leather is really exquisite.
The camera is pretty amazing and the colors are great. The camera even allows you to have a flash with your selfies. This has been a ton of fun to play around with and check out.
Everything is crystal clear and the phone is easy to use! Even as a die hard iPhone fan I am having a great time checking out the LG G4 phone with my the amazing Sprint service.
Fact #5 — Sprint Will Come Direct To You
One of the coolest new services that Sprint offers is Direct to You. This service includes delivery of your new device to you at a preset time.
Then you get the advantage of a technician that sets everything up for you. Best of all, this service is completely FREE!!! So you are getting an amazing customer service experience at no cost to you at all.
As you can tell I really loved being a part of the Sprint Moms blogger event. I learned so many great things and got to connect with amazing bloggers from the Chicago area.
