According to a source of ours inside Sprint, the EVO 4G’s $10 premium cost doesn’t seem to cover the Qik video chat capabilities, as previously thought. As you can see in the screenshot below, the service will be cost a $4.99 premium, payable via PayPal. This shot comes straight from training materials that Sprint will be handing out to its employees tomorrow.
The fact that payment is made via PayPal leads us to believe that the extra fee is not being charged by Sprint, but rather by Qik, themselves. We hope to have more details on the matter as soon as they roll in. In the meantime, if this news is bumming you out, you might want to check out Fring.
