It's true: Sprint shakes up its pricing plans; call any phone on any carrier for free

Sure enough, folks, the major change in Sprint plans we just alluded to came through this morning. You now can call any mobile phone, on any carrier, without burning your minutes.

That gives Sprint some of the hottest phones around — starting with the Touch Pro 2, natch, and including the Palm Pre and Android-powered HTC Hero — paired with data plans that are tough to beat. Let's hope the other carriers feel the pressure and start moving their prices downward, as well.

Check out the full deal after the break.
