Exclamation Sprint Surcharges getting high!!

Here is from this month's bill:

Federal-Univ Serv Assess Non-LD $3.82
Administrative Charge $4.95
Regulatory Charge $2.00
--------------
$10.77

This is in addition to another $6.55 in Idaho tax and 911 County tax. So, I pay around $17 per month in taxes and surcharges.
The thing about surcharges is they are not mandated charges by the government. They are fees that Sprint chooses to charge ON TOP of your bill and can vary from month to month. So, the $4.95 admin charge for example... what is that all about? These are "just because" fees. Take that $17 a month and add to it the $10 per month EVO "just because" fee and I am paying Sprint $27 per month simply because they feel they need it, not because of a specific service they are providing. OK, off my soapbox, but this is nuts!
