Riddle me this about $10 data premium.

If you order a 3G only smartphone via most any website the extra monthly $10 fee is tacked on.
But if I go through a employee discount website (Bluefishwireless.net) I can uncheck the $10 add on, making Sprint a very attractive carrier.

So if I ordered a 3G only smartphone without the $10 add on, would data still work, would the $10 get added on without my knowing, etc? Confused
The plan says it comes with "Sprint data essentials pack". Is that some kind of limited data pack that wouldn't allow me full use of a 3G only smartphone?

I have worked on consumer, employee, 3rd party employee, and referral accounts, they all require it, no way around it.

because when the charge initially began it was implemented for the Evo and Epic only.

What will happen is when you call in to activate your new phone the system absolutely requires us to add that code in. I can't imagine the amount of unhappy customers that site has caused.

That is true, a little unexpected surprise of the not to nice kind. Surprised

We don't have an option to get around it. The site might create your tentative account without the $10.00 fee, but when it's time to activate that line, the system will require the charge.

Still comes up with the $10 data premium. As well as the plan itself is more expensive, $60 vs. $52.
Thanks though.

Yeah, With the new policies for smart-phones all smart phones will require the 10 dollar data charge no matter were you get them from. The only exception is if you get the Samsung Replenish
