Sprint (S +0.1%) is making a push to grab mobile users who don't want to get locked into a 2-year contract, but also want subsidized hardware. The carrier's "pay as you go" solution offers a $50/month unlimited voice/data plan for buyers of two feature phones, and a $70/month non-LTE voice/data plan for buyers of two mid-range Android phones that go for $150 and $250. This might be a sign of things to come, given SoftBank's (SFTBF.PK) willingness to use aggressive pricing to gain share.
