VERIZON : Get out of your verizon contract with no Early Termination Fees ( ETF)

submitted on June 29, 2011 by orangearrows in "Stores / Merchants"
Window is open for next 60 days

It's possible to break out of your Verizon Wireless contract in the next 60 days without paying an early termination fee because they're increasing the "regulatory fee" they charge customers from $.13 to $.16. This is what is known as a "materially adverse change of contract" and by standard contract law, it renders the contract void if one of the parties doesn't like the change.

    I have been avoiding getting a new phone with Sprint because I don't want a new contract. I have four months left. I like Sprint but will get a new unlocked phone with a Buxr deal.

      Who do you want to switch over to ? I got Sprint last year with the EPIC 4G and have been pretty happy with it especially with the all-inclusive plan + I get a 25% billing discount corporate. The only issue I saw was when travelling abroad - this phone is useless since it's CDMA but was able to use it in Wi-fi areas.

    The Consumerist reports that so far one of their readers was able to cut ETF in half. Note, that he only had a few months left on the contract and this was their second phone line

    I argued my point a bit more and she asked if the 3 cent increase was the only reason for wanting to get out of the contract. I told her about not needing the phone and how that was beside the point, since the contract changed. She wasn't going to budge on the ETF but offered to cut the ETF in half (basically crediting my account with 40 bucks). I took the offer which ended up being in my favor, even if only by a smidgen.

    We have Verizon and they have always accommodated us to our advantage whether it was giving us free minutes or buying a new phone and even crediting back an occasional late fee of $5.
