    My boss is looking to get a smartphone to replace his average as grits cell phone he has now. He's with T-Mobile, and I think he'd be best with the iPhone instead of being a G1 guinea pig.

    He's still under contract with T-Mobile for a bit over a year. I thought maybe he'd had a $80 ETF or something. They told him it would be $200. This seems a little outrageous when AT&T told me a few months ago that their ETF would be $150 for my dad's replacement phone, and this was from day 1.

    Does T-Mobile charge outrageous ETFs compared to AT&T? Something just doesn't smell right.

    Yup, 200 bucks is what I paid to get out of mine. Sucks but what can you do if you want to switch carriers. Another option is to see if they can switch him to the lowest plan, sometimes its cheaper but if still has over a year its doubtfull.
