Sprint Enables Carrier Billing for Android Market Purchases


Sprint customers making purchases in the Android Market should soon find one more option from the list of payment sources. Aside from whatever credit cards you may have linked up to your Market account, the option to “Bill my Sprint account” is beginning to show up for those on the network. Select this option and charges will be made directly to your next Sprint bill.

According to a Sprint memo, the rollout of the feature began on 4/7 and should reach all handsets by 4/14. If you “opted out” of having content purchases charged to your bill when signing up with Sprint, the option will be present but purchases will be unsuccessful. The feature also won’t extend to the HTC Hero or Samsung Moment.

The news makes Sprint the most recent wireless provider to enable carrier billing, joining AT&T and T-Mobile.
