    First off, Welcome to Wireless Advisor.

    Secondly, I hate to tell you but it's very important to ask question when you purchase a new phone. If you got it at the promo price, you are bound by the 2 year contract renewal. Only when you pay full price for the phone are you not extending your contract.

    The good thing in your favor is the declining ETF policy, which means you won't be paying the $175 ETF at it's full amount. But as far as getting out of it, you're stuck.

    The harsh reality is you should have read the T & C's when you bought the new phone. You are responsible for fulfilling the contract now or pay the ETF to get out of it.

    You could try and get out the contract by resorting to unethical means, but you're on your own with that one.

    thank you for the response. however your post doesn't provide me with any useful information. is there anyone who can share an experience with me in regards to cancelling their verizon contract early (without being stuck with the fees.)?

    thank you all i appreciate your responses in advance!;)

    You are responsible for the fees. That is what Mobile Mike is telling you. When you sign the contract, you are bound to those terms, and they include an early termination fee. There is no getting out of it.

    His post did provide useful information, for you to use next time, when you sign a contract, to fully understand what that contract entails.

    If the "useful" information you want is how to get out of a contract YOU are responsible for, you're out of luck.

    Your only way out is using unethical means, such as lying or paying the ETF.

    You got a new phone for a discount binding you to a contract. That's just the way it works.

    Next time, pay attention to what you're agreeing to before you agree to it.
