Unlimited Data Plans
Aren't truly unlimited without the new $10 fee they add on. SO why don't they just add the xtra $10 on to the original plan? FALSE ADVERTISEMENT! I hate companies who try to scam customers like this.
BTW a 10 yr Sprint customer, i just hate these little hidden fee bull****. Sorry had to vent. Spring if you're listening this is BS way to bring up the rates after the fact.

that's because unlimited data is included without $10 add-on for non-smartphones. The $10 add-on is for smartphones because they obviously use much more data than a dumbphone.
what I am a little ticked off at is that when webOS and android phones first came out, they used the excuse that these operating systems are data intensive so an everything data plan is required. Than they used the same reason in 2011 to make all smartphones pay $10 add-on on top of the everything data plan. If anything they should've added the $10 add-on to only very high-end phones, or to those who use a lot of data.
its mind boggling that a teenage girl with a palm Pixi or blackberry curve, who texts a lot, and uses little data....ends up paying the same amount as a tech geek with an rooted evo3d who is using a crap-load of data all day long.

Also a 10+ year Sprint customer and I have absolutely no issues paying $10 to turn on my iPhone and do anything I want, as much as I want, and always know my bill will be the same.
Compared to getting speed scaled back when you hit certain limits or the other things Verizon and/or ATT do, this is a bargain!

I would like to provide a little clarification on our unlimited data plan pricing if I may...
We offer unlimited data in that we do not have caps, throttle speeds, or charge any sort of overages. The $10 premium data add-on is a fee that is assessed not to nickel and dime our customers but so that we can continue to offer you unlimited data, which is not an inexpensive proposition. The fee is assessed on all new smartphone activations, upgrades, and Customer Owned and Managed Devices.
Your account manager should have accurately explained this to you when you signed up for your new plan. If he/she did not do this, I apologize. There are multiple options for reducing expenses and/or mitigating your cost. Also if you can provide more information on the extra $20 you are paying to use with your business, I might be able to point you in the right direction on having a better overall experience.
Have a great night!
