OVERLAND PARK, Kan. -- March 14, 2014

Sprint (NYSE: S) is launching Sprint^® Prepaid today, a new branded offer for
those customers who want the control that comes with prepaying for their
wireless service each month, the savings that come with paying for the device
up front  with no long-term commitment contracts, and the benefit of being
with the Sprint brand.

“Our goal is to respond to customers’ shifting demands by featuring a variety
of wireless plans that meet different needs,” said Jeff Hallock, Sprint chief
marketing officer. “This new Sprint Prepaid offer allows us to play more
competitively in the monthly prepaid space. Prepaid plans are a viable
solution for many consumers, and we’re now making these available to people 
who have an affinity for the Sprint brand, are looking for savings, and desire
no-contract options without compromise.”

Similar to Sprint’s popular prepaid brands – Virgin Mobile USA and Boost
Mobile -- Sprint Prepaid is specifically designed for the Sprint customer who
doesn’t want to go through a credit check or has hit other spending or line
limits. With a prepaid plan, the customer pays in advance for the device and
for each month of service and does not receive a monthly bill.

Devices

Sprint Prepaid expands on the “As You Go” no-contract plan introduced last
year with new pricing, including smartphone plans for as low as $45 per month,
expanded merchandising and a stronger device lineup that includes LTE and
Sprint Spark™-capable options. At launch, top-selling smartphones eligible for
Sprint Prepaid  plans are:

  *Sprint Spark-enabled Samsung Galaxy S4^™ Mini

Apple iPhone 4s Pre-owned is also available on Sprint Prepaid. Hallock said
that the list of available devices will grow throughout the year and that
feature phones will be added soon.

Sprint Prepaid customers will be able to participate in the popular Sprint
Buyback program which allows them to trade in an eligible device to earn
account credits. At launch, Buyback will be available to Sprint Prepaid
customers online only and customers will receive a credit to their account.
