Sprint is now rolling out an OTA update to its variant of the Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini. Although the smartphone has been forgotten by many, it’s good to know that the device is still supported by the carrier. This update comes directly from Sprint, so there won’t be a change in the Android version.

But if you’re calling another country, you’ll still have to pay the roaming rates. There...

In order to compete with the other national carriers, Sprint has cut the prices their data plans again. If you don’t use much data between many people, the new plan can be very compelling. For just $20 per month, you can get 1 GB of data to share with up to 10 lines, before access fees. So it’s just the data plan that’s $20, before you add any devices to your monthly plan. This is still a good deal though, if you have Sprint coverage and do not use much data per month. Will you be taking advantage of this deal? Source:...
