    Is there anyway to get out of the smartphone contract? My mother wants to go back to using out old LG phone and when she called they said she has to stay with her smartphone until the end of her contract. Is there anyway we can get out of that?

    I'm assuming she got a new smartphone when she got the plan. If so, the answer is unfortunately no. If she didn't then I don't see why she couldn't switch back to a non-smartchoice plan. About all you could really do is pay to terminate the account and try to recoup the money by selling the smartphone.
    Good luck.

    If you purchase a Smartphone with a contract, you have to keep the Smart Choice Pack through the end of the contract... unless you have a Blackberry, in which case you have to keep the Smart Choice Pack for the length of the contract and until a non-Blackberry device is activated on the line, or have a $44.99 Blackberry feature in addition to a "normal" (non-Smart Choice Pack) rate plan.

    All the extra data that smartphones use is the reason for this. Blackberries do not have an option to shut it off so they're constantly pinging the network, looking for new e-mail, which is why they are always required to have a Smart Choics Pack or Blackberry feature.
