I'm trying to set up a new contract with Sprint and while going through the Apple Store checkout I noticed they charge $80 for unlimited everything, and then an extra $30 for Premium Data. When I try and go through the Sprint Store, it's just the flat $80, no premium charge. What's going on here?

Poor guy, I'm not sure. Wish I could be more help :(

I'm not on Sprint but I tried going through the order process to see if the same thing would happen to me but it asks me for my SSN so I couldn't go through the whole process.

I attached a picture below though that Apple only is asking for $80/month for unlimited talk, text, and data on sprint.

Hope someone on sprint knows and can chime in, if not I would call Apple and place an order over the phone.

I'm on an unlimited data family share plan and I do have a premium data charge but it's 10.00 per iPhone as it has been for years. maybe they changed their new plans?

$30 Premium Data with Sprint through Apple Store?

With the new plans, iPhone for life and easy pay ,family plans, there is no premium data fee anymore. You pay for the plan, then the phone- monthly with easy pay or leasing-, then 15$ for the line if it's a family plan.
Example- 100$ family plan 3 lines would be 145$ if you didn't make phone payments, if you do easy pay or iPhone for life add the cost of the phone to that, no premium data fee..that's only on the old plans now, if you still have one.

Yeah, I understand that, but I'm not sure why Apple would charge the $30 for it with a new 2 year contract and Sprint does not. If you try and sign a new 2 year contract with the Sprint store, it's still only $80 for everything.

Sprints site breaks it up into 50 + 30 (for unlim data add on) = 80. Apple's site seems to have the plan price incorrect at 80 and still adds 30. Contact Sprint to double check & they can probably fix it if you need to order through apple.

I get ya. When I was in the Apple Store they were telling me that Sprint hadn't updated there system for them yet, and of course the Sprint rep. had left for the day. That was another reason I just bought mine outright and did the activation and plan stuff myself with Sprint.
