View 4G...price plan?

I'm planning to pick up an Android tablet...and would like to know if Sprint tacks on another $20 onto the existing acc't just like adding a new phone. OR they'll try and push some dumb separate data plan just to suck more money from me.

If its the latter, I don't see why I would want to tether (hehe) myself to sprint with a tablet as well...when I can easily tether a wifi only model to my EVO.

any thoughts?

A tablet is not a phone so yes, it would be a separate data plan just like if you bought a data card. Also, that is what every carrier does so don't slam Sprint for that, Sprint's data plans are much more competitive than the other carriers.

Re: View 4G...price plan?

Not bashing Sprint...why should I really...I've been with them over 10 years. All the wireless providers suck up our cash as it is anyway!

I kinda figured, but its nice to get a confirmation. Am waiting on them to respond to a email that posed the same question (at least about the pricing)

Thinking it MIGHT not be worth buying thru Sprint if its AN entirely separate data plan.
