Sprint to charge $15 for number change starting June 10, still free via Sprint.com

A new tiered system for Sprint's Total Equipment Protection plan? Herp. Charging customers $15 to change their Sprint phone number? Derp. Sprint's decision to start charging moolah come June 10 when changing phone numbers via a Sprint store or Care call representative likely won't sit well with some folks. Fortunately, there's still a way to get that phone number changed without lightening your wallet, according to Sprint's Support blog. By logging in to Sprint.com and changing your phone number through the "My Preferences" tab, you can get your new digits without having to fork over that pesky phone number change fee. Now you can channel your mind to more non-herpy-derpy things, like pre-ordering that shiny, new Samsung Galaxy S III, for example.
