Report: Sprint to offer unlimited data plans with the iPhone 5

Well, this is interesting. Despite both AT&T and Verizon killing off unlimited data plans, Sprint is expected to offer up its same $40 unlimited plan that it offers on Android phones when it gets the iPhone 5.

This is great news, and it's exactly the type of competition the cell industry needs to keep prices lower. With AT&T and Verizon both charging a boatload of money for data, this should provide the much-smaller Sprint with a competitive edge. It could even cause the big boys to reconsider ditching all-you-can-eat plans.

Of course, it's all unconfirmed, as is Spring getting the iPhone 5 at all. But it all makes sense, and it all sounds great to me.
