Sprint releasing contracts over $4.99 a month??

So I got a letter from Sprint the other day stating they want to charge me $4.99 per month because my account is under an "Account Spending Limit".

I called Sprint today because I find this fee to be bullcrap, and I was told they are willing to cancel my account without paying any early termination fee. I've been with Sprint for 9 years to the month. I've never had a bill under $120 USD and yea, sometimes I paid a few days late, but they always got paid. And now over $4.99 a month, Verizon or AT&T is getting a new customer.

Is there a future for this company?

That's crazy, I wonder if us SERO members will be getting the same. My bill comes out to $72.67 a month for 2 lines.

asl is the spending limit program for those with poor credit. you have to put a deposit down on your contract and you cant exeed that limit. i had one about 4 years ago in the first year of my contract. your out of the program in one year and you get your deposit back in the form of a service credit.

Sprint is kind of screwy with this new charge. I would ask to have your spending limit removed. I havent had one for years and pay late all the time.

and most people should just sign up for automatic payments. the only reason this would be a problem is if you dont have a bank account.

my roomm,ate got the same letter, but they worded it so he couldnt get out of his contract. they said it was a term of the asl, that they could increase or add fees as they please without any recourse in the first year.
