Sprint to Add $10 Fee to All Smart Phones Effective January 30th

Previously reserved for the likes of the EVO 4G, Epic 4G, and new EVO Shift 4G, Sprint’s $10 add-on data feature is coming to all Android phones.  In a press release from earlier this morning, Sprint outlines the plans to implement the fee effective January 30th.  Citing the need to offer “simple and affordable unlimited plans for its customers while maintaining a wireless network able to meet the growing appetite for a richer mobile experience”, the carrier believes they’ll still provide the best value in the industry. 

“Sprint’s unlimited data plans, with or without the $10 charge, continue to beat the offerings of our top national competitors, who cap users’ data, charge data overages, and do not offer the unique functionality of Any Mobile, Anytime, which gives subscribers on the Sprint network unlimited calling to any other wireless user in America regardless of carrier.”

What say you? Will Sprint offer a best in class combination of rate plans and handsets with this extra $10 per month charge?
