    Prorated charge of $17 for 3 days? wtff

    This is a $129 family plan with Two evo's (= +$20 premium fee)

    My tmobile plan with the nexus one was like $60 + tax = $65. Where does sprint get off justifying $25 in surcharges? Guess I gotta call in too about the activation fee.

    I'm complaining. Isn't that what Al Gore invented the internet for?

    $129.99/30 days = $4.33/day
    $10.00/30 days = $0.33/day (x2 phones = $0.66/day)
    Jun 4, Jun 5, Jun 6, Jun 7 = 4 days

    Therefore:
    4 days x ($4.33/day + $0.66/day) = $19.96 (Sprint is doing better by my calculations)

    And most likely $22 for surcharges is for 2 months (June and July).

    I just got my first bill too and it was $225. $36 activation fee is crazy...all other charges appear to be in order.

    mine was $270 with only one Evo...

    but i just merged my account with my moms so add $20, then take off 23% and split 3 ways and i'd say i'm golden...even with pro-rated charged =P

    When I first came to Sprint I had to pay for two months of service. Don't know if that's changed or not.

    Call Sprint I did on the first bill got my activation wavied on both lines that is 36 per line 72 in total. The other fees are percentages of your total bill. Call them today if not today then before the 30 day mark.

    Well, actually, the SPRINT surcharges aren't taxes; they are charges for paying taxes that Sprint decided to "pass along" to its wonderful customers.

    This is not to say that Sprint is the only one to do this. It is just that I find the charges repugnant.

    E.g.:

    Federal-Univ Serv Assess Non-LD............................................................ $4.33
    California State-PUC User Fee ................................................................ $0.20
    Administrative Charge ........................................................................... $4.95
    Regulatory Charge ................................................................................ $2.00
    TOTAL $11.48
