No, they'll charge you out the WAZOO if you go over so expect to fork over big $$$ for creeping over.

Re: sprint capping "unlimited" data

There is a $500 cap in place on the overage charges as well. That was a nice gesture I thought...

Re: sprint capping "unlimited" data

All reports I've seen are that this cap is rarely enforced and certainly does not kick in with just one month's exceeding the cap. People still report regularly doing 10GB a month...

Some of you are getting this wrong, the 5GB cap is for Wireless Cards only, and not for your cellphones.
