Today, Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd. introduced Galaxy S^® 4, successor to the
award-winning Samsung Galaxy S III. Sprint (NYSE: S) will offer the U.S.

Fared Adib, senior vice president-Product Development at Sprint, issued the
following statement:

“Sprint is excited to bring the benefit of Truly Unlimited^SM 4G LTE data to
the U.S. variant of Galaxy S 4 in the second quarter of this year. Our
customers will appreciate the ability to use Galaxy S 4 to surf the Web, share
pictures and videos, and use this smartphone as much as they want without
worrying about throttling or overage charges on their monthly bill due to data
caps. NPD Group data indicated in 4Q 2012 that Sprint was the top U.S. seller
of Samsung Galaxy S III, so we believe our customers will also enjoy its
successor’s features and unlimited data.”

Galaxy S 4 customers can enjoy an unlimited data experience with Sprint
Everything Data plans. Sprint’s Everything Data plan with Any Mobile,
Anytime^SM includes unlimited Web, texting and calling to and from any mobile
in North America while on the Sprint Network, starting at just $79.99 per
