    I've been on Sprint's 50 At Home plan for over a year. My most recent bill
    shows that I've used under 50 minutes so there should be no charges, but I
    have the following under "Other credits and charges":

    CARRIER COST RECOVERY CHARGE $.99

    I'm charged some taxes on the above amount as well. I know it's only a
    dollar and change, but is this a legit charge?

    define legit? If you call and complain, Sprint will take it off (at
    least once).

    If you have zero LD, they do not charge the 99 cents

    It's really a revenue enhancement charge, but since it could refer to
    any costs Sprint incurs- sure it's legit. Any company will want to
    pass on rising costs to the consumer and this somehow sounds better
    than "price increase". Of course, if these charges start to add up to
    about $5.95/month that would kill the whole point of Sprint 50 at
    Home- which might decrease revenue.

    You'd probably have to ask our LD company about that. The charges they
    can or must charge (in this case, probably "can") vary a bit from from
    what wireless carriers can charge.

    He did answer the question, by pointing him to the proper dept. It's a
    question dealing with Sprint LD, not Sprint PCS ...

    Get your tongue out of Rob's ass for a minute and look at how many times he
    posts guesses. He works for Sprint PCS, right? Is that why he has to
    answer EVERY question someone here posts, even if he guesses?

    I'm still waiting for him to back up his drivel.

    For you, it is only $.99? In our neck of the woods it is $1.99. One of the
    main reasons for having a cell phone is to avoid doing landline long
    distance, and if we need to, use a calling card from Costco or Sam's Club to
    get MCI or AT&T long distance, respectively.

    Stop top posting, you moderator wanna be. I didn't start this, any of the
    three times.
