    On contract I pay $400 for a 64gb plus
    Att next, I pay $850 in the end (I always pay for it at the 12 month mark)
    Outright I pay 850 right away.

    If I buy under contract, isn't the termination fee $360? Couldn't I just buy it then cancel my contract?
    That would come out to $760 plus tax...am I off here?
    Sorry for the hassle ...it's been bugging me the last couple days. I'm picking up a phone tomorrow so I'm thinking

    The termination fee is $325. And yes, it's pretty interesting.

    So $725??
    There's gotta be a catch somewhere.

    + 40 activation.

    I just read the ETF policy, there is no catch. It's weird.

    So did I. only thing I can think of is they will cut your line and your number may float away?

    They probably will. That's why you want to add a new line to the same account, and then swipe the sim-cards. If it's in the first 14 days, they can ask you to return the device. After 14 days you'll pay ETF + partial bill for the other line, so here is the difference.
