Sprint joins in on confusion of EVDO data plans

Sprint is now pushing their PAM (phone-as-modem) plans as part of their Broadband Initiative. Regardless of all the marketing crap that they throw at you to confuse you, this is what is really going on with Verizon and Sprint.
If you have a 1XRTT phone, then you can use your phone as a modem and not pay extra. If you want an EVDO plan however, you cannot use your phone as a modem unless you pay for an extra plan. Sounds like crap? It is. Pure marketing crap. They’re basically telling you that a feature that you had before doesn’t exist anymore unless you want to pay for an extra plan. Two plans? WTH. Yeah.
Providers, you need to get a clue. You’re just hurting your business when you break out features that existed before. Create new features, don’t deny old features.
