Sprint rolls out pre-paid tablet data plans
Both corporate customers and the casual users can get the new plans via the Sprint Zone icon on their devices. After tapping on the icon, you’d have to activate your device, select a new customer service and pick the “No Commitment” option. You can also test the service for free for a day by typing down the promo code Free Day when selecting your choice.
Overage fees are also conveniently avoided as the carrier simply cuts the service when you reach your limit.

The Prices Are Too Much Compared To Their "Unlimited Phone Plans" But Ehh Cant Help It.

Why only 1,5 / 1 Gb of data ?
that is too litlle, they should at least have 2-3 GB.

Love how sprints pricing is the same as AT&T and Verizon .. But they try to fool the Rtards with $14.99 $29.99 and $49.99 ...

Umm sprint offers a bit more data for the same prices 50MB, 500MB and .5GB respectively compared to the competitors.

You can get unlimited data on the VirginMobile plan for $35 a month as a reference point. Granted that Sprint will throttle usage over 2.5 GB starting in October, but still means 2.5GB at 3G speeds for $35 a month.
If I knew this, why would I pay $50 a month for 1.5 GB? Keep in month that both plans are pay as you go in theory.
