Know about surcharges, taxes, fees and other charges

I have been with sprint for more years than I can count. I am thinking about changing because I'm tired of the surcharges! This has become RIDICULOUS! I had 9.03 tacked on my bill this month to cover "the charges that help defray cost imposed on us". GIVE ME A BREAK! It's called the cost of running a business ass holes  ever heard of overhead! OMG! Yep gonna change my phone co. Gonna do it soon!

Re: Know about surcharges, taxes, fees and other charges

Sorry you are frustrated with the surcharges and fees - but I think you'll find they are about the same across all carriers.

There are certiain things the phone company has to do -- that we've been told to do by the state, local or federal government -- and those things cost money.  There are also certain costs we're allowed to charge for - towers, wires, phone poles, etc.

Here's a great page that explains all the various taxes, fees and surcharges:
