Leaked docs suggest Gear S to join Sprint's 'Framily' with its own plans

Leaked Sprint docs suggest Gear S will have 0 device plan for voice, text and data

Leaked documents seemingly indicate that Sprint will have a $10 option to either use Samsung's Gear S as a standalone device or add it to an existing Family Share Pack plan. The watch is able to handle voice calls, SMS texting, and data connectivity through a cellular network on its own so it doesn't need to be paired to a smartphone like the Apple Watch or Google's Android Wear platform, though you can pair the watch as a tethered device over Bluetooth similar to Samsung's existing Gear 2 smartwatch.

According to Phandroid, which obtained the leaked Sprint document, there are two options to add the Gear S to Sprint's network. You can either add it as a standalone device with its own plan for $10 monthly, or add it as a Family Share Pack device for $10 and share the data bucket with existing devices on your plan:

  • a special $10 per month "connected device" plan that gives you 1,000 minutes, 1,000 messages and 100MB of data

  • a $10 add-on to a Family Share Pack plan that shares data, minutes and messages with all other devices

What do you think of Sprint's pricing? Is it cheap enough for a standalone smartwatch?

Absolutely... Now it will be a matter of the price of the watch itself. If it's reasonable, I'm in.

Like the looks & what I've read. Price will be a big deal for me as well

I wonder if they will handle it like the tablet plans. I may go for it either way. Maybe 50 with its own plan
