Re: Is Sprint cracking down on data usage?

it shows unlimited since there is no automatic cutoff in the system. 1 month going over 300mb on roaming isn't going to do much, but multiple months then they send the warning.

That's the thing. I only did it one month (a few days to be specific) and I didn't even use all that much data. I have had Sprint phones for about 5 years now and have been doing this since I started with Sprint (like I said maybe a couple times a year I use data on roaming when I go to Upper Michigan where there is no Sprint service).



The thing that fustrates me about this is I pay about $100 a month (I have also been paying the $10 fee for 4g since I got my Evo 3D and there is no 4g data where I live and likely wont be for some time) I make so few calls most months on my cell I don't go over 300 minutes. Yes I use a little more data than your average person that just does web browsing but then again I am sure there are many that use way more data than me. Mostly I use my data for streaming internet radio and some web browsing. On a rare ocassion I might tether with my laptop mostly for web browsing. And now I get this threatening letter from Sprint basically telling me I wronged them somehow and I am being watched. Give me a break.



As far as the unlimited roaming thing goes I could have sworn I saw unlimited data roaming in my plan details when I got my Evo 3D. I'm going to have to look into this. I don't remember seeing anything about a 300MB limit anywhere (I was aware of the rule that over 50% of your usage has to be on Sprint towers). I forget the name of the plan but it is the one with basically unlimited everything. I don't think Sprint has the plan anymore (or might be a higher cost) and I was able to keep it when I got my Evo 3d.

Re: Is Sprint cracking down on data usage?

Well I just logged into my Sprint account and sure enough in my plan details it says I have unlimited 3g roaming. I am going to have to call Sprint and see what they say about this. Here is a screen shot:







Edit: Does anyone know where I can get a copy of my contract? I got my phone off of wirefly and do not have a paper copy. I am about 90% sure my contract said data roaming is unlimited and I want to double check.




By the way I just noticed your avatar shaggylive. Ron Paul 2012.

Re: Is Sprint cracking down on data usage?

think the Sprint 3G part means Sprint's network, when I checked the sprint page, it says (on our network) next to the data/minutes/texts

edit: got curious too and this part of the terms/conditions seems interesting

Off-network Roaming: The primary use of your Device must be for domestic purposes within the Sprint-owned network. Domestic means use in the 50 United States and U.S. Territories (except Guam). Sprint reserves the right, without notice, to deny, terminate, modify, disconnect or suspend service if off-network usage in a month exceeds: (1) voice: 800 min. or a majority of minutes; or (2) data: 300 megabytes or a majority of kilobytes. The display on your device may not always be on and will not indicate whether you will incur roaming charges. You can monitor usage online through My Account. Roaming is not available with single-band phones, or to customers who reside or whose primary use is outside an area covered by the Nationwide Sprint Network. Sprint may limit or terminate service if you move outside of the Sprint owned-network.
