If you are mad at Sprint, go have verizon or ATT run your credit, you'll get a nice surprise(200-500 dollar deposits per line). Sprint have the spending limit program so they can afford to give people with bad credit low deposits. If you have zero credit with Sprint right now you normally have just a 50 dollar deposit. Compare that to verizons 400.

Re: Sprint will now charge you $4.99 a month if you don't have automatic credit card

honestly 90% of the accounts i see that are 30-60+ days past due are ASL accounts. not all, but a lot of people on the spending limit program are there for a reason. there are plenty of people that are ASL but pay there bills on time, awesome, after 12 months of no hotlines or late payments call the credit department and have them do an evaluation and get your deposit/ASL removed.

Re: Sprint will now charge you $4.99 a month if you don't have automatic credit card

Look I work for Sprint. The account spending limit or "ASL" account is based of your credit. This let's us know wether you are a scrub and pay your bills on time. Try walking into a bank or car lot to get financing or a loan with a 560 credit score, just try and see how much more money you are paying out the wazoo BECAUSE of your credit score.

We use a system called KMS, the document called ASL Uprades states that to REMOVE the ASL the customer has to be with us for 18 months, a clean payment history for 12 and had their last credit check done 9 months ago. Guess which one all the complainer's do not meet, PAYING YOUR BILL ON TIME. Don't tell me it's because of the economy and yada yada, then here's what you do, drop the web and text (Unless you have to have a data plan bc you HAD to have a smart device). Or change bacl to your old phone that does not require a data plan so you can save money.

This is to the person that says we won't remove their ASL because they are on a old plan. WRONG WRONG WRONG, we won't remove you becuase you do not meet the above criteria.

It comes down to this there are certain things you have to earn in life, everyone thinks they have to HAVE A CELL PHONE, you do not. No carrier in America is a charity, you want service you pay. The excuse the economy's bad. Yeah well last time I check Sprint was apart of this economy as well. When we have ppl who cannot pay a $69.99 bill on time and they are late every month don't expect extra benefits.

Re: Sprint will now charge you $4.99 a month if you don't have automatic credit card

Wow y'all are spoiled just because they may not have the devices you want you are throwing a hissy fit. I mean Sprint isn't doing the greatest but they are trying to stay afloat like everybody else and they are probably not wanting to risk losing a bit of money on things like new smartphones or they may not simply have the budget at the moment to get a new series of phones with all the customers they are losing. I'm sure they will come back once they start turning a profit again.

Edit: Sorry I realized this sounds a little mean so I apologize.

You need to update the title to "Sprint will now charge you $4.99 a month if you don't have automatic credit card pay if you have bad credit aka ASL".
