LG Optimus S is more phone than my grandson needs on MY plan. I do not want to pay for the $10 premium charge.

He just got it today, what can I do?  At the time he was not aware that it was on the smart phone list. I am the one who spotted it on my bill. Any suggestions?

Hello, You should consider the Samsung Replenish, it's a smartphone, but does not require the $10 fee.

CDC88[...]  RC1024 was answering the OP's question by letting him know of an option to avoid the $10 fee. 

As for the $10 fee it really sucks and their reasoning for it is [...]but what are we gonna do??  When considering family plans with 3 or more lines Sprint is still cheaper than Verizon or ATT.

However in my area I could get MetroPCS with equivalent service and save about $40 per month.  I was always afraid to get it due to coverage/reliability but am rethinking that now.  My sister and her husband have had MetroPCS for over a year now and have no issues with it.  My mother and father just ditched Verizon (when Verizon tried to [...] them at upgrade time) and went MetroPCS.  All of them have Samsung Android phones and love them.
