Wow .. so apparently people do listen ( and read the internet ). Just got a phone call from them…. Here’s the gist of the call:
– Sprint cannot put the old-style unlimited service on the new device ( expected )
– Sprint does *not* have *any* option other than paying overages for use past 5Gig a month.
– Sprint does not expect 4G service to be in the Tidewater Virginia area anytime soon.
Therefore, it’s rather useless to me as a network connection device given I typically use 20 gig or more per month.
I have asked if they can take the unit back once we’ve paid the remainder of the fees, and I will find a different service with better options. The gentleman said he’d call me back tomorrow .. so we will see.
