Offering a large selection of affordable and feature-rich phones to help dad fill all the roles he manages in life, Sprint (News - Alert) wants to help customers find the perfect gift for dad this Father's Day (June 19).

For the tech-centric and budget conscious dad, Sprint offers a variety of devices. Sprint simplifies shopping for dad with an assortment of devices to choose from and budget-friendly wireless plans, with four eco-friendly phones, four 4G smartphones and 10 other 4G capable devices in addition to several other choices. Sprint has a device that will complement dad’s personality, whether he is an Earth lover or a multitasking guru, the company stated in a press release.

“Sprint’s portfolio of smartphones and tablets make it easy for dads to stay connected with their work and families while keeping up with the latest sports scores and news on-the-go,” said David Owens, Sprint vice president of product development. “With our affordable devices and our truly unlimited Simply Everything plan, dads don’t have to worry about overage charges or keeping track of their data usage.”

The devices provided include Samsung Replenish, Kyocera (News - Alert) Echo, Samsung Galaxy Tab, Nexus S 4G, Samsung Galaxy Prevail, and MiFi 2200. Dads with a Sprint ID-capable device, such as LG Optimus S™, Sanyo Zio™, Samsung (News - Alert) Replenish™, Samsung Transform™, Samsung Epic™ 4G and Samsung Galaxy Tab™, can get a variety of useful apps in a single download. Dads are free to download with Sprint’s Everything Data plan, and they can have up to five ID packs on their device at once.

Recently, the company requested that the Federal Communications Commission (FCC (News - Alert)) block AT&T's proposed $39 billion takeover of T-Mobile USA, warning that the merger will destroy the competitive nature of the nation’s wireless market. In its filing, Sprint argued that the proposed acquisition would harm the broadband economy, competition and consumers, reversing two decades of successful U.S. government wireless competition policy and resulting in higher prices for consumers.
