HTC EVO 4G: Hidden Costs for Video Chat

By Alan Ng - May 28, 2010

We have some important news for everyone planning to pick up the HTC EVO 4G handset from Sprint on June 4th, as it looks like you’ll need to pay an extra fee per month to make use of video chat features.

As reported from Android Guys, a screenshot of some Sprint training materials has been leaked, and reveals that customers who want video chat will have to pay an extra $4.99 per month, on top of the other fees.

That means that the $10 extra fee for 4G services does not include video calling, and furthermore, the $4.99 has to be paid directly to QIK via PayPal.

Does this mean that Sprint has nothing to do with this extra payment for their customers? Either way, that is $5 per month that Sprint customers shouldn’t really have to pay.

We’ll bring you more details on this soon – give us your reaction to the news. Would you still pay $4.99 for video chat?
