Sprint adding $10/month charge for data on new smartphone activations
There are a lot of Sprint users in webOS land and a lot of them are still holding on for HP and Palm to give them a new device that will let them stay on their favored network. That network is favored by many because it's the least expensive monthly option that gives you a large (or unlimited) bucket of minutes, texts, and data.
Starting January 30th, it will be slightly more expensive. Sprint is apparently feeling egalitarian about that $10 fee it had been charging WiMAX users and spreading it out to all smartphone users. After Jan 30th, if you buy a new smartphone on Sprint, plan on spending an extra ten bucks on top of Sprint's default unlimited plans.
