    would cost.

    As a follow up to this thread and going in a different direction, I'm
    curious whether anyone in this newsgroup, who doesn't have Vision on
    their acct, has been charged separately for data usage. This would
    include TM's-Short Mail - IM's, accessing email sent to your
    sprintpcs.com address, surfing on the net on the phone, or via a phone
    tethered to a laptop.

    If anyone does pipe in, please include what activities you were doing,
    and how much you were billed.

    Well, at risk of somebody at Sprint noticing, I will pipe in.

    I cancelled Vision a couple of months ago (June I think). I have used
    Vision (CNN surfing mostly) on average of once per week while waiting for a
    meeting at work to start. We also send text notifications to our phones
    (my wifes is a 2G data ... A460, my phone is an A500) via email, perhaps 4
    or 5 per week. I have never been billed for even one KB of data usage for
    either phone (my Vision phone is the primary phone on the account). But
    then, I suspect it doesn't add up to squat either.
