Sprint says $10 EVO 4G ‘Premium Data fee’ is for hardware!

Previously we reported that many people are questioning the $10 “Premium Data” fee Sprint is charging it’s users of the Sprint HTC EVO 4G,  and the group of people who have setup a dedicated site to this subject.

I know a lot of you out there are still wondering why Sprint is charging a $10 a month “premium data” fee, well we got an answer directly from a level 3 Sprint supervisor via phone.

The direct quote from the Sprint manager was

“The $10 monthly charge is for the hardware for the phone”

Yes, you heard that right, the hardware. Why would Sprint call this a “premium data” feature if it’s for hardware? I assume they are quoting it as such so people don’t realize that there being charged at least $240 more dollars for the device on a 24 month contract, as putting it as a “premium data” feature most people wouldn’t question it as this is a new device with 4G.

Let’s hope this is not a start of Sprint being unloyal to there customers.
