If I wasn't such a low volume user I would look into that. But they have $6/month device charge and $80 PP refill lasts me a year, so considering all the hassle of getting new phone and Sprint going from WiMAX to LTE I don't think I will bother.
That being said I love how flexible their plans are. Plus they refund you unused part each month. I will follow this company. HoFo needs dedicated forum for them.
Don't forget about overpriced phones, 35$ activation fee, taxes and some other fees too. Combining all those things together does not sound so good . But they do allow roaming and tethering ... For me it would be good without activation fees, less charge per device (2 or so) and only taxes (like in RW)
Yeah, there are taxes, fee and $6 per line charge. But as you noticed there is official tethering which is great. However, when I looked more into phones they offer there are problems reported for all of them.
Don't forget that it doesn't matter how low cost the service is if you can't get a signal! Verizon is just about everywhere but in many parts of the country, Sprint service is only available along the major interstate highways.
