    it'll connect to your home network so you dont have to use sprints slow evdo network (slower than common wifi, but faster than anything else offered by cell phone companies...)

    You can connect to your home network, I used to do this. They won't charge you for it but your bill will have lots of other hidden fee's. If you have not received your first Bill from sprint brace yourself for all the hidden fee's.

    Just look at your own bill, anytning other then the plan price = hidden fee since the store rep didn't tell me about them. You sound like a Sprint Fan Boy to me

    Those are not hidden, they are local and states taxes. Sprint or any other provider does not control these. Those so-called fees do not go to your cellphone provider, they go to your government.

    You're all TALK... and no WALK!

    Like others have said, you can connect to your home networking as well as using other Wifi Hotspots (free ones are available like at Panaera Bread and I believe MacDonalds will start if they haven't already.) No hidden fees

    Re: why does sprint charge for wifi

    I have had this phone for over 3 months. The only reason I got was to surf for free on my wifi. Guess what. I am being charges out the arse. Maybe its a setting I dont know. I wish I could set it so that it never connected through sprint. I am so unhappy with sprint right now. I feel like I am eating nails and crap'n barbed wire!

    Have you tried talking to customer service about the fees? I'm sure they can explain all your charges and clear up anything you don't understand.

    Oh sweet Ginger! I have tried like six hundred and fifty two thousand four hundred and fifty seven times! Actually, they told me that they would refund the charges back to my account, but never did. I have called about it and they told me they have no record of promising me any refund or credit.....( sound of grown man sobbing)....any suggestions or consolable action on your part would be much appreciated. Oh and thanks for the hugs and kisses. I need them.
