Reactivate mobile hotspot for $20 AND only 2GB??? 🤨
Sprint customer or employee, eh? Sprint would do well to emphasize this point constantly.

Well, at least LTE data is unlimited!

Hey, one positivie is LTE data is still unlimited on smartphones.

Now all I have to do is wait for a Samsung Epic with LTE to launch on Verizon. I really want a smartphone with a Super AMOLED display.
I have a feeling that the unlimited for $29.99 is a mistake because of all other things I have read in past hoe they are going to charge for how much you use and how fast. But if it is correct I am going to get one and be grandfathered in..
First, Epic is a Sprint exclusive device... Samsung may make a clone of it for (Just as this Thunderbolt is nothing more then a clone of the EVO) but they will never get the Epic.

Second, only Sprint offers completely unlimited 4G and it will stay...
"Well, at least LTE data is unlimited!"

For now.
