Sprint has raised its text-messaging fees to $.15, giving you a “get-out-contract-free” card.
The change constitutes a material change to service. According to Sprint’s fine-print contracts, if there’s a material change to service, you can cancel service within 30 days without penalty.
The changes went into effect Oct 1, so you have until All Hallow’s Eve if you want to dropkick Sprint.
