Almost went to Sprint but their plans are either so limited in what you get for them, or give you way more than you want or need. Like I wanted to get a family plan with just talk and maybe add data to one line but the only talk only plan has only like 700 minutes and there is no higher option unless you want to get the unlimited data/text/minutes plan which is way too expensive for me and had all that extra stuff I didn't need.
