I'll wait for clarification.

Maybe the $10 will be for features like the video conferencing and other media stuff.

Its impossible for Sprint to charge people for a service that doesnt exist in some places.

From Engadget: "Unfortunately, there's a downside to all this: customers will be paying a mandatory (as confirmed to us by Sprint reps) $10 per month 'Premium Data add-on' on top of their plan"

It's total cost of ownership.

Every time my monthly bill goes up by $10 or $20, yearly cost of the device goes up $120-240. That is what I look at.

My old 3G Win Mobile phones cost me $55/month. The new plans bumped that to $70. Now it will be $80. That's $300 more per year than I was paying a year ago.

Not saying I'm not gonna buy it. Not saying it's still not competitive. Just saying it's disappointing and a poor business move in my personal opinion.

AT&T *lowered* data plan costs to sell people on iPhones even though it increased data usage on the network. This was a smart business move because it sold more iPhones and made them more money in the long run. Putting up barriers to adoption will slow sales and it will lower the number of people coming from other carriers to Sprint.

Not me. I expected to keep my plan and buy this subsidized for $199.

this is funny. I read it as its gonna cost me an additional $10 per month period, everyone wants to see it a certain way? anything less would just be a bonus. Now how many of you said you would be willing to spend more than $199. Subtract $199 from what you would have been willing to pay and then spread that out over the 12 months and it will be less than $10 per month.

Its all a matter of how you want to look at it. I dont know how much I will use the internet on the phone as I dont do much now, but I do know I have 30 days to decide if it is for me, after that I will have the tough decision, or maybe, just maybe the phone will sell itself at whatever the price is? Lets hope.

I think the 10$ will ONLY apply to business plan people. Regular family plans will not pay the fee!

Hopefully engadget might be looking into this just like us, and are confused to what it exactly means. Fingers crossed though

I'm assuming the 10$ applies for everyone even though it is pretty unfair if they aren't in a 4G area. I guess it's harder for me to understand because I'm in 4G heaven

I pay $50 a month for my Overdrive.

So in reality $30 a month for the EVO hotspot isnt that bad.

No, but what's going to happen is that people will decide not to get the phone. Why bother if you can't use the 4G you have to pay for? Rather than getting Wimax-ready devices into as many hands as possible, Sprint shot themselves in the foot.

Now this will just be purchased by people like us who wanted it anyway rather than anyone who figured they would be able to use it if they happen to be in a 4G area.

When wifi radios started becoming standard in laptops without PCMCIA cards and such, hotspots started popping up all over and before long it was the norm.

They should have focused on getting Wimax-ready handsets into as many hands as possible in order to define the new standard for 4G wireless.

First timer here after only finding the forum a few days ago.

IMO the 10 buck add-on will in the end get dropped. The FCC is looking out for consumers lately and with Dan Hesse being on record as saying wimax is cheaper, if they actually try to charge that I can easily see the FCC coming in and raising a stink about it. Especially if enough consumers raise a fuss about it. I agree 10 bucks doesn't seem like much on face value but it adds up in a hurry. What if I travel a lot for business and use my phone in non 4G areas am I to get a credit on the account for those time periods. I hope it gets dropped I would be hard pressed to pay it each month.

Everyone has the right to their own view, but paying $10 extra for the data when its still $10 cheaper then overpriced verizon and AT&T plans is still a great deal, especially for those who get 4g.

you're not factoring in the placement of the comma - both plans will require the 10 add on.

I'm switching from tmobile. I was willing to pay the $10 more per month that a comparable plan costs at sprint. now it'll be $20 more per month so no evo for me. sad day.

Guys maybe we can cool it with the unnecessary posting on this thread? The servers for this forum are probably straining under the weight of all the posters. Price and date is released, go to your local sprint and ask what the 10$ actually is and just sit tight until you can buy the evo.

IMO this thread is no longer needed, it should now be called the official EVO 4G discussion thread or make a new one called that.

Again no he did NOT say that. People interpreted his comments to mean that but he never once said "hey we wont charge extra for 4g"

Why cant you use the family plan at $129 for two lines? You can add both friends and family to it? It would be cheaper than two $69.99 plans. And 1500 minutes is better also than the 900 you get from the two $69.99 plans?

he never said that. he said we can give the customer more value for less.

and look at Sprint 4G+voice vs. VZW and AT&T 3G+voice. compare the prices.

Does having 120 fewer dollars per year bother you?

I have to disagree until someone shows me a quote.

He said that they could do 4G cheaper(for Sprint's sake) but he didn't say that they wouldn't charge extra.

That's CEO speak for ya!

I don't understand Sprint. They already have a HUGE mountain to climb with the iPhone and Verizon. Charging $10 for 4G (if true) and $29 for hotspot (Verizon is free?) just doesn't make sense. Do they seriously think they are going to get a lot of new customers?
