    Any ideas...? They got me hooked for $250.00 per phone out to Aug 2008. No way can I hang that long. :confused: :eek: :mad: :( :apple: :D

    my NEXTEL contract is only $175. that's only 2 months service for me until august '07. i can live with that.

    i'm hoping cingular will offer something like a buy-out or something, the way car dealers buy your old car -- no matter what you owe on it (they hide the costs in your contract)

    Depends on how honest you feel.

    When I moved abroad to work last year, I had to break a contract with Sprint. They didn't charge me, since I said I'd be perfectly willing to transfer my contract to their France-operated branch. :D

    Since that obviously doesn't exist, they let me off the hook.

    A couple of options:

    1) Pay the early termination fee that was in the contract you signed.
    2) "move" to a remote location that they don't serve.
    3) Wait for a material change in their terms/billing. (IE: The SMS increase from Octoberish)

    Personally I'm stick'n with'em 'cause I have no love for AT&T/Cingular just to get an iPhone. That and I'm only paying $30/mo for 500 min, unlimited internet, unlimited SMS etc etc minus a corporate discount of a sizable amount. :)

    If you monitor this site, they will usually tell you when Sprint changes their rates or their side of the contract, which gives you 30 days to get out of the contract.
