Recent rumors indicate that Sprint is gearing up to attract more customers to its network with the introduction of pay as you go plans, dubbed"Sprint As You Go," that will come into effect from January end this year.

Sprint's subsidiary companies like Boost Mobile currently offer pay as you go plans, but it seems that the company wants to take advantage of its brand name to entice more prepaid customers.

"Since this information comes from pre-release materials meant for Sprint employees and affiliates, we probably won't be able to go deeper until the end of the month," reported Android Police.

Sprint's pre-release marketing document of its pay as you go plans, expected to start from Jan. 25, has a heading which states "Something to celebrate, 1/25/13: Introducing Sprint As You Go." The document further says "Sprint will offer Sprint-branded no-contract phones and plans for customers who prefer no annual contract and more flexibility managing monthly payments."

The leaked marketing document also displays four of Sprint's Pay As You Go devices: Samsung M400 flip phone for $49.99, Samsung Array feature phone for $79.99, LG Optimus Elite Android smartphone for $149.99, and Samsung Victory Android phone for $249.99.

The report suggests that these devices will not run on Sprint's 4G LTE network, but will get unlimited talk, text and web for $70 a month with the smartphones. "Feature Phones" will be available for $50 a month plan. Sprint may introduce more phones in the future, possibly more from its main line up. Standard Sprint phones, including Samsung Galaxy S3, Galaxy Note 2, LG Optimus G, and the HTC EVO 4G LTE, cannot be used with Sprint As You Go plans.

Many mobile phone users do not want the hassle of contracts with carriers and want more flexibility which a pay as you go plan offers. Would you prefer a contract or a pay as you go plan?
