Why if these surcharges are not required by law consumers need to pay them on a contract for cell service from Sprint? Also note that Sprint chooses to collect these surcharges from us. They can potentially choose to do whatever they want and increase those surcharges as they see fit without a choice other than cancelling the service and hope that other cell phone services do not do the same.
