Or probably charges that Sprint has contrived to offset the cost of LNP...E911... Some corporate executives six figure year end bonus... You know, the charges they name as "federal" or "state"... The reason that these fees vary from carrier to carrier is partially elusive... on the outside we would think the carriers with "excessive" fees are gouging us... but then we might look conversely at this practice and in like kind with other industry practices such as handset subsidy and such... is it possible that the carriers that are charging less are banking on subscriber loyalty because the fees are less?... Hard tellin'. In any event Nextel, Sprint PCS, CIngular (just to name a few) have all been sued for this practice. Big numbers, bean counters, and calculated crap shoots... Same old story.
