Sprint lets you do carrier billing on Android Market purchases

This morning is full of Android Market goodness. Earlier, we found out that Sony Ericsson launched its own Android Market channel, and now, joining T-Mobile and AT&T, Sprint is giving customers the ability to charge apps to their monthly bill (What is going on, Verizon?). Sprint started rolling out this feature on April 7, and should be done by the 14th. If you still haven’t received it, you should be getting it by tomorrow (except for HTC Hero and Samsung Moment users, who will not be given this treat).

Worried parents, or those who simply would not like this option, can opt out of this feature, and Corporate Liable customers will actually be systematically opted out. It will take as little as a visit to Sprint.com, or a call to Customer Care, to change your “opt in/out” status, so there should be nothing to worry about if this is something inconvenient for you. Those that decide not to take part on this will still be presented with the option upon purchasing an app, but the transaction will not go through successfully.

Well, if you are on Sprint, hopefully this has rolled out to your device, as it is definitely a very convenient option to have! Those that have received it, please let us know what you think of it. Is anyone opting out?

    No question this is a great extra option to have. Surprised they didn’t do this sooner but I guess better late than never. Sprint always full of surprises.

    i bought Worms from EA’s website a couple billing cycles ago and it was charged to my Sprint bill… this isn’t the first time I’ve noticed people claiming a new feature that I have had on my Evo for a while before it made it’s way to the internet… I know I’m not THAT special! I know it was at least one other feature where I read the article and said “I’ve been able to do that on my Evo for like, MONTHS…” yet I can’t remember it

    It’s always nice to have such kind of conveniences because most customers take benefit out of that.

    This much better. Loving the little & big things Sprint is accomplishing. I’ve heard some people say they’ve been able to do this for a while but not all. I’ve went to purchase apps before and never given the option to put it on my bill.
