First, the service sucked. Call quality is poor on good days and worse the rest of the time. When I called Sprint customer service they told me if I didn't like the service I could switch back to where I came from. I live in a rural area where Internet is hard to get. I use the cell phone as my Internet portal for modest speed. Sprint says they provide unlimited Internet without throttling. Two point here:
- Sprint can't throttle you back when they are so slow to start with. On multiple speed tests they run at only a third of what they promise. Dial up is only an inch away.
- Unlimited access means little when it is near impossible to download at any reasonable speed. How much can you download in a month at .08 Mbps?
The Premium Date Add-on Charge is mandatory on all new accounts with smart phones with 3G/4G capabilities. Most areas do not get 4G. My Sprint 3G works less than half the time, including when I am at work in town. Current customers will get hosed with this rip-off fee when they upgrade their phone. I recommend you upgrade to a real telecommunications company instead.
Save yourself the high blood pressure and aggravation. Avoid Sprint.
