I had a Galaxy S III for evaluation for one day on a new Verizon account in September. I returned it, canceled the account and ordered the Verizon iPhone 5 on the 14th and received it the next week.

Now, I'm not very happy with my Verizon service in my area - my LTE signal keeps dropping out and won't reestablish itself until I go in and out of airplane mode or turn LTE off and back on. Verizon's LTE coverage maps show good, strong LTE all over my area and beyond.

I'm just trying to figure out if i'm stuck with my Verizon contract now that I want to return a second phone and cancel a second contract without stiff penalties.

They can't prevent you from canceling, but they might prevent you from signing up in the future.

Also, wireless carriers run a hard credit check each time you sign up for wireless service. By canceling a second time you would have wasted two hard inquiries on your report. It's not a huge deal, but just an FYI

I appreciate the replies, folks. I didn't want to call Verizon first and have them possibly stonewall me or lie to get me to stay. I wanted some other opinions first.

OP: They released a carrier update today that is supposed to fix the LTE switching issue your having. Install the update and see if it fixes your issue before canceling.
