    Ok so I was browsing around Sprint TV one day and came across a few things. It asked if I wanted to add something and did not say anything about me having to pay for it, as I would have not did it at all. So my bill that is due at the end of the month is about $10 higher. So I look around to investigate and there's a $10 Sprint TV Xtra thing on there that I want no part of. Customer service chat was extremely helpful on removing it and crediting me back.

    But I saw NOTHING on my phone about telling me what I was adding was going to be $10/month.

    Are you serious, its a scam for them to charge for a service they have. This is ridiculous, some channels are free and some require a premium service.

    Yup, my son did this be accident. I got Sprint to unsubscribe and refund me the $10. I also went to my son's phone online and clicked the thing to not allow extra services to be activated on the phone.

    It isn't a scam AT ALL!! I just click on a few premium channels and it DOES say it costs extra for that set of channels. One was $10 for a handful of channels, the other was $6 for a few others.

    You just didn't read the warning!! Just like people that don't read a contract they are signing!!

    on the pay channel i have clicked on it is clear as day. it says exactly what channels you get in the package and what the monthly fee is. then, there is even a confirm button. sounds like user error.

    Glad to hear Sprint was helpful for you!! :)

    Funny how these threads end when the OP turns out to be the one in error!
