    We don't know this but I would suspect it is possible or even likely depending on circumstances, history, etc....

    I believe it says this in the Acceptable Use policy. Let me go look it over real quick.

    Most people really have nothing to worry about. As long as you don't stream audio/video or torrent a lot you'll be fine.

    thinking about this from a customer retention and business standpoint, it would probably cost sprint real money to sniff out a tethering person and then file that, and deal with the customer calls, subsequent complaints ect. More importantly they loose a lucrative smartphone contract worth 1600 bucks over two years.

    I would imagine that sprint isn't going to care if all you are doing is accessing similar data to that available on the phone (web email maybe a youtube vid)

    it probably only makes sense to cancel a contract and deal with the customer relations headaches when a user is flagrently abusing sprints data systems.

    it's not like you are sneaking data onto a talk only contract, so just don't go nuts.

    That's what I thought. No one has been able to produce a documents stating a 5GB hard cap on smartphones; data cards only.
