I just called Verizon to see when my contract would be up because I want an iPhone. They are telling me November 6th of this year. I asked about the prorated early termination fee that I read about. The woman told me any accounts that were already in existence prior to May 2006 don't qualify for the $5/month early fee. It's not the end of the world if I have to wait an extra month and a half but I was curious if anyone else here canceled their Verizon contract early and was able to finagle the prorated fee?
