    It sounds like that the amount that was displayed at one time was
    incorrect ($.002/KB as opposed to $.01/KB).

    Most likely Sprint is notifying all customers of this correction /
    increase, even if you have a plan where you do not get billed for.

    But I think I would have been apprehensive if I had gotten that letter,
    too.

    Of course you'd be scared if you had to deal with Sprint billing.

    Well... I'd like to think we were simply informing everyone, but it was=20

    I'd have to relocate the original post, but I'm pretty the letter=20

    accept the $5 charge or have their Picturemail access shut off. That,=20

    Privacy protection and all that. We probably should have setup a two-

    I was wondering about the $5 charge for picturemail. The guy on the
    phone didn't really explain to much to me all he said was just agree to
    it, no changes will be made to your account since you already have
    vision with pictures pack.

    BTW if I got the Vision premium pack instead of Vision pictures pack how
    much would I pay per picture to send them, or would I even be allowed to
    send pictures anymore?

    $5/mo for unlimited use. Or the picturemail account gets locked out
    after 2 weeks (where you can still download from PC) and then deleted
    after 30 days.
