Sprint customers on East Coast: Check your bill for a “disaster relief credit”

If you’re a Sprint customer, and your billing address is in one of the areas affected by Hurricane Sandy, be sure to check your most recent bill for a “disaster relief credit” from Sprint. Good and EVO reader Shaun wrote to let us know that he received his (a total of $5.72 in his case), so it’s definitely a good idea to make sure that your account wasn’t accidentally overlooked.

According to Sprint, the carrier “is crediting back late fees; overage charges for voice, text and data; roaming fees; and call-forwarding fees for Sprint services used between Oct. 29 and Nov. 28. These credits apply to Sprint customers in select counties based on zip code in the states of Connecticut, Delaware, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, and Rhode Island.”

Sprint isn’t ignoring its prepaid customers, either. Boost Mobile Pay As You Go and payLo customers should receive a $10 account credit, and Sprint is proactively extending service to prepaid customers on Boost and Virgin who haven’t been able to make their payments yet.

Most of us will take any credit we can get, so make sure it’s on your bill, and kudos to Sprint for stepping up.
