Sources in Sprint are reporting that current plan holders are in for a discount. Sprint has dropped the price of Phone As Modem add-ons on new plans, to $15, down from the previous $40 per month.
This appears to only take effect on current offerings; Sprint’s Simply Everything, Sprint Everything, and Everything Plus plans. The price drop appears to be part of an effort to lure customers over from older, grandfathered plans. Sprint’s plans of today typically cost more, but by discounting PAM, it can make up for the difference.
In addition, this will finally enable the Samsung Instinct to support Phone As Modem tethering officially. Sprint’s current plans have lacked a Phone As Modem add-on code until this week, and Instinct must be hacked to use Phone as Modem without a Phone as Modem plan.
