Lesson learned, check your misc cell phone fees

Every now and then I get curious, and apparently should have checked this one earlier, my miscellaneous cell phone fees:


North Carolina State-911 Tax $0.60
North Carolina State-Sales Tax $2.45
North Carolina State-TRS Charge $0.09
Pennsylvania State-911 Tax $1.00
Pennsylvania State-Sales Tax $2.35
Allegheny County-Sales Tax $0.39
--------------
$6.88


I go, hmmmm why do I have all these north carolina charges. Contact sprint, they have no idea, it seems that they randomly put these on my bill many months ago. Way to go Sprint!

They must have knocked up the percent or something, 2.30 does sound high if it's supposed to be 1-2%

Agreed. It would help if they didn't make the damn bills some cryptic message that you have to study years to completely understand.
