Adding a line then canceling it is often cheaper than paying full retail price.

Not in my area either. I've gotten multiple alerts today for Apple stores, though. Unfortunately I'm not in town.

So I add a line with Verizon and then cancel it, I will pay for phone at contract price and then the $350 ETF fee? Wonder if there is any other fees in there? Has anyone on here done this before?

Yes I've done it. You purchase at contract price. Keep service for 14 days, then pay ETF. Overall it saved me about $75.

Just did it but am not planning on paying the ETF fee. T-Mobile is gonna pay my ETF since I'm switching to them right after signing a two year contract for Verizon. That's right, I just got an iPhone 6 plus 128gb for $499 :D

Haven't got the bill yet, so not sure how much it will be. I still have to pay for one day of service and the activation fee.

Why give up the 6+? That'd a requirement to give up the device isn't it?

Adding a line and paying $299 + Tax (California) 8% = $58.92 plus cancellation fee of $350 = 708.92 you save $100..:rolleyes:

Can't cancel till after 14 days or else you have to return the device. Then if it's a new line of service, you have to pay an activation fee of $30 followed by an upgrade fee of $35. I'll let you do the math since you're so good at it. :rolleyes:
