Sprint preparing to offer free trials to Spotify plus carrier billing, 'Framily' discounts According to a new report, Sprint and Spotify are preparing to team up in an effort to get the carrier's customers set up with the unlimited streaming music service.
The wireless carrier will start off with free trials to Spotify for its subscribers, allow for paying via their monthly carrier bill, and will also offer discounts to the streaming service for some of its users. Spotify Premium costs $9.99 per month and allows for streaming on mobile devices.

If you are on a "Framily" plan, you can get Spotify Premium at a discount, to be shared between the group.

Reportedly, Sprint and Spotify will jointly announce the partnership at a press event on April 29th. Any such deal would require record label approval, so the 29th date is tentative.

Spotify has 8 million subscribers around the globe, and Sprint has 54 million subscribers, making it the third largest carrier in the nation.

Whenever I hear of a streaming service "teaming" up with a wireless carrier I get worried. I guess my first question would be " do you get unlimited data streaming to be able to use the subscription?" You never hear anything about data charges with something like this.
