Thumbs down Sprint's Unlimited Everything Plan is a joke....

Please Login to Remove!

So they updated their system which allows for no more tethering. Why is it that they offer "unlimited everything" for $99usd, but charge $45usd for "phone as a modem" service? I'm glad my contract is up in March. /rant

I thought PAM was an additional $15....? Where did you see $45?

Not trying to be a smarta$$ or anything, but you may want to price the plan you have with other carriers before you dump Sprint. I think you'll find that even though this is a crappy deal, their price will still beat any other carrier's.

juwaack68, A CSR I just spoke to right now said so, in fact, they suggested I reduce my plan and ADD the service. Hell no. My salesman and I discussed PAM when I signed my contact. Now, over a year and a half later into my contract, they eliminate the service I pretty much signed up for, and ask me to pay $45usd more (on top of my "unlimited everything" plan).

Something doesn't sound right here. I would verify that they are not trying to give you a connection card IN ADDITION to your BlackBerry.

I add PAM for my users who travel overseas (it's included in the BES plans, but requires a $15 add-on when they switch to the international BB BES plan). Something doesn't smell right about a $45 upcharge.

I just checked their website and the $149/mo is for an additional connection card, from what I can see.

I have a pricing grid from my Sprint rep at work and can check tomorrow.

I have (6) phones on my account; (5) have Everything Data and (1) with Simply Everything Plan. I'm paying $15/mo for Phone As Modem as juwaack68 has stated.

Something sounds strange in their quote to you...

PAM is $15 with the Simply Everything plan ($99 plan only). If you have some other plan, PAM will be more.

And PAM was never included in the simply everything plan. Make sure your on the right plan, that's my suggestion.

And besides, the $99 on sprint is the best unlimited plan right now. Try doing that with someone else. Good luck.
