    I have 5 phones on my business account and I am closing up shop soon. I still
    have 6 months or so left since my last changes, so I'm sure they'll hit me
    with a penalty fee.

    Do you know if it's per phone or account? Also, I assume there is some
    flexibility or negotiating that can be done since the end result is I either
    pay a fee that is "acceptable", or I walk away and pay them nothing and they
    lose.

    Has anyone had similar dealings?

    It's $200 per phone and they will not negotiate. Nextel is very firm about
    that and will not hesitate to go after you if you refuse to pay. If you
    somehow think you don't have to pay the Early Termination Fee *****ed out in
    the contract you signed you're better off waiting the 6 months til your
    contract expires.

    Per phone.

    Nope. You signed a contract stating you'd pay $x per phone.

    They wouldn't loose - they'd probably take you to court. 5 phones,
    $200 each - $1,000. That's a LOT of money.

    You're so damn goofy. Take someone to court for $1,000? You've
    obviously not been to court recently nor needed the services of an
    attorney. Not even remotely worth that amount to collect through a
    court and attorney.The only thing Nextel will do is send lots of
    letters and send the amount to a collection dept. The will hound you
    and harrass you as best they can. It'll probably go on your credit
    record but thats about it. If you can live with that, then deal with
    it. Otherwise, "pony up".

    If that's the case, and they refuse to negotiate, they get zero from me. Good
    luck collecting. It won't happen.

    I'm sure I can work a deal with them when they hear my terms.
