    So you want an iPhone...But...
    You don't want to cancel on your verizon contract and get charged an early termination fee.

    This may be the solution to your problem...

    Wow. I thought I had it made with my $15/month bill.
    And I wouldn't count on anyone getting out of an ETF. It is written right in the Verizon contract that they reserve the right to raise rates/prices
    Quote Originally Posted by Verizon Customer Agreement
    Our Rights To Make Changes
    Your service is subject to our business policies, practices, and procedures, which we can change without notice. UNLESS OTHERWISE PROHIBITED BY LAW, WE CAN ALSO CHANGE PRICES AND ANY OTHER CONDITIONS IN THIS AGREEMENT AT ANY TIME BY SENDING YOU WRITTEN NOTICE PRIOR TO THE BILLING PERIOD IN WHICH THE CHANGES WOULD GO INTO EFFECT. IF YOU CHOOSE TO USE YOUR SERVICE AFTER THAT POINT, YOU'RE ACCEPTING THE CHANGES. IF THE CHANGES HAVE A MATERIAL ADVERSE EFFECT ON YOU, HOWEVER, YOU CAN END THE AFFECTED SERVICE, WITHOUT ANY EARLY TERMINATION FEE, JUST BY CALLING US WITHIN 60 DAYS AFTER WE SEND NOTICE OF THE CHANGE.
    Now if it that price increase has a "Material Adverse Effect" on you, then you can end the service with no ETF. A Material Adverse Effect (MAE) would imply that the change will cause a severe change that you will not be able to financially recover from easily. Verizon is raising its SMS rate, but only by .05, hardly a severe change. This would not be adverse because they notified customers in the service agreement, which is publicly available whether you have service with them or not. It would also not be adverse, because the amount is only for a small part of the service, not the service in total, so it likely won't affect the entire customer base. Thirdly, the rate is not significant enough to cause a "severe" change to most.

    In other words, don't count on getting off the hook. Try it if you must, but don't hold your breath, Verizon users.

    Heh, I have Virgin Mobile, too. I have about $20 on my account now, so I won't have to actually pay up for a little while.
