After much hassle and several false starts and disconnects in getting in
touch with the right department in Sprint, I spoke to a woman in
technical support in the group that supports 3G data cards.  

She said:

- public IP addresses are used
- static IP available for $3/mo additional
- maximum 3G data plan is 5GB/mo of data transfer, retail reate, $60/mo
(which is typically cheaper than your typical ADSL/IDSL or ISDN service
cost)

I received an offlist response indicating Sprint now offers static.
