Credit: BravoKiloVideo/ShutterstockSprint has essentially split its unlimited plans in two, with the less expensive Unlimited Basic offering a lot of the same features as Sprint's outgoing Unlimited Freedom plan at a lower rate for families of four.

Although subscribers have no limit on how much data they can download and upload, Sprint warns "those who have used more than 23 GB in their current bill cycle may experience slower data speeds during times or in places where the network is more congested". In Mexico and Canada, enjoy unlimited talk and text and 10GB of 4G LTE data.

The only silver lining is the volume pricing: Unlimited Freedom now works out to $36 for five lines, while Unlimited Basic is $32 per line for five lines. Adding a second line costs $50, subsequent lines go for $30/month.

Along with Hulu, Unlimited Plus includes the Tidal music service, with music streaming up to 1.5 Mbps.

These two new plans will become your only options for unlimited data starting this Friday, July 13th. No matter which one you choose, both new unlimited plans still come with Hulu.

Sprint's new "Unlimited Basic" plan costs $60 per month for one line of service or $140 for four lines of service, though it streams video at 480p resolution and only includes 500 MB of personal hotspot service. That's also true when roaming in Canada and Mexico.

Unlimited Plus features unlimited talk, text, and data, full HD (1080p) streaming, 15GB hotspot data at LTE speeds (3G after), unlimited talk/text plus 10GB of data in Canada/Mexico, and subscriptions to Hulu's limited commercial option and Tidal Premium. A second line costs $50 and following lines are $30. Sprint's four-page press release announcing the new plans included 11 footnotes, signaling just how complicated they are.

The plan starts at $60 per month for the first line.

Sprint now joins the other three major American mobile carriers in offering multiple "unlimited" plans, that actually have definable limits. Here are the details about our great deals: Get a new iPad on us when you activate a new phone line on an Unlimited Plus or Basic plan.11 The first 10 people through the door who activate a new line (new or existing accounts) with Sprint on Basic or Plus will receive a $50 MasterCard®Prepaid card.
