Sprint teams with Pogoplug to offer free cloud storage to customers

Summary:Sprint isn't wasting any time either with the new Pogoplug deal for iPhone and Android customers launching today.

Wireless providers seem to really have embraced the "New Year, New You" mantra -- Sprint, doubly so.

Following up a new data cost-splitting scheme (a.k.a. the "Framily" plan), the nation's third largest wireless carrier is adding cloud storage to the mix.

Sprint has inked a deal with cloud storage vendor Pogoplug, setting up a promotion that will be available to Sprint's iPhone and Android smartphone customers.

These Sprint customers will be treated to 5GB of Pogoplug cloud storage with the option to upgrade to unlimited storage for $4.99 per month.

Pogoplug charges $49.95 per year for unlimited storage space without limits on file sizes either.

Users can store the basics, such as personal photos, videos, music, and other digital content.

To get started, the Pogoplug app can be downloaded from Sprint Zone, the Apple App Store or Google Play.

The new services are rolling out immediately and are available starting today, January 27.
