Sprint to increase upgrade fees to $36

Sprint will increase its upgrade fees from $18 to $36.

Yesterday we reported that Sprint is raising its ETFs to a whopping $350 for advanced devices , though it will be prorated based on the remaining months of your contract.

Well, perhaps to ready itself for the incoming deluge of customers who want to upgrade their handsets to the Samsung Epic 4G Touch or the rumored iPhone 5 , Sprint will also increase its upgrade fees from $18 to $36 on September 9, according to an internal document leaked to SprintFeed.

We're not quite happy with all these fee increases, but hopefully this means Sprint will be able to keep its unlimited data plan going for a while longer.
