Plan question 5GB 6GB depend on card?
Here's the deal - my dad has a 3G air card, with a 5GB/mo. plan.
Are ONLY newer cards allowed to have a 6GB/mo. data plan (also at a lower price)?
If so, who's idiotic idea was that? BBR just featured a story on the front page awhile back - and here is Sprint's actual press release: »newsroom.sprint.com/article_disp···_id=2105
Looking for options here, but had to vent a little. My dad has tried calling in, and hasn't got a clear answer other than "the number isn't eligible for the plan."
Does this mean a new card is required? If so, again, why? There is no "4G" in our area anyway... so...
Take your card and go to Millenicom and you get 50GB a month on the Sprint network

It appears that the $49.99 6GB/mo plan is only available on 3G/4G combo cards and devices.
If you goto »sprint.com and click on Shop then Phones then click the Mobile Broadband tab then check BOTH 3G and 4G you will see the devices that are eligible.
According to the sprint website these plans are available on the 3G/4G combo devices:
12GB - $79.99
6GB - $49.99
3GB - $34.99
500MB - $39.99
3G only devices:
5GB - $59.99
All these plans feature an insanely expensive overage of 5 cents a MB over your included (that is $51.20 a gig - yikes!).
I'm in a low spot and don't have my tower up to access my 100 Mbps backbone link, so I've been pulling a steady 60 MB month on my Sprint 3G card. 1.2 to 1.6 Mbps during the day, 2.2 to 2.5 Mbps after midnight - not too bad.
$59 per month unlimited. Gotta love five year old grandfathered plan!

Millenicom looks interesting. Thanks for the link
dib22 - yeah, I saw that they seemed to only show this plan for the combo cards, just thought that the option might be available on an existing 3G only card.
