I have had Sprint ever since my first cell phone, and continue today. While Sprint does have a lot of fees, they are still no where near Verizon. Our $252 Sprint plan has two 4G phones, two iPhones, and one feature phone. A similar plan with Verizon would cost well over $300 a month. I love Verizon FiOS, but clearly Verizon Wireless is starting to get out of control. I have many friends that are thinking of Sprint, since I said the network will be brand new within two years. Already with the upgrades my 3G speed is much better. They still struggle on the rush hour commute home via Metro North trains, but overall we are very happy with Sprint.

Yep, I heard this on the radio in the car on the way home this afternoon. A similar article on CNN says Sprint already charges $36 for the same thing, but I don't recall a similar fee when I upgraded two years ago.

 

Maybe this is new? An "activation fee"?

 

Edit: Oops. Sorry for the double post.... Lost my wireless connection for a minute and didn't think I hit submit before it came back. Oh well.

Sprint has always had an activation fee that I can remember. It used to be like $18 or so. After Sprint raised theirs to $36 last year, AT&T followed in Feb.

As far as I know, Sprint will waive initial activation fees if the device(s) is purchased online. What I do know is, I have yet to pay an upgrade fee on Sprint in 13 years as a Sprint customer. If you just call them up, and ask them nicely, they will remove it for you... at least its worked for me about 8 or so times now... takes about 5 minutes.

There are resellers that waive the fee too. Walmart does it a lot.

    • Added, and 2 more estimated sites: T-Mobile eNB 876480. Looks like its located at (40.62210996397784, -73.97627312607108), as the tower looks like a Sprint setup. T-Mobile eNB 875632. Both this site and Sprint eNB 9022 seem to be located at (40.61640722407462, -73.96985178560767).
    • Many of these sites I am uploading are for sites that do not exist, yet.  Although, I suppose I could go into NR only mode every time I connect to a new site, and then switch back, allowing all the TAC NR trails that occur to now have a home. Ideally, I would love to ne able to add the TAC's myself.  I have the NR Trails CSV file downloaded, and I see all the TAC-less NR entries.  Is there any way I can edit and manually upload them myself?  Maybe create a portal for such an upload?  Or at least give me a way to create at least one manual entry for every new site? Robert
    • Could we send the TAC as -1 if it’s invalid? Then, if there’s and existing site that matches the other info, I could match the web data entry up with it (despite the TAC being absent). 
    • Mine has been enabled.  And they show up in my device logs with the TAC null. Robert
    • If the TAC is missing, an entry is still recorded in the log, but it would not be included in uploads.. so you could probably manipulate a trail log export to add the data to the map if you were able to nail down the sites without the TAC. EDIT: Sites with a missing TAC are only recorded in the log if the option to do so is enabled (Logger > Log Sites with Missing TAC).
