    So, has anyone tried canceling their service this way? Did it work?

    I do not see an advantage in canceling unless Voice Command was
    used/useful extensively and there is an other service provider that has
    a similar feature.

    He wants to leave Sprint for other reasons, and is looking for a way out
    of his contract. His coverage in Florida is okay, but he often visits
    one of his kids in Southern California where Sprint coverage is poor, as
    well as visiting me in Northern California where Sprint coverage is
    poor. He wants to move to AT&T when the 3G iPhone comes out.

    That is completely irrelevant.

    He can cancel his contract and keep the service month to month since
    they have made a material change to his service.

    It doesn't matter whether he ever paid for that Voice Command service,
    ever used it, or even ever planned to use it. He has cancellation
    rights for 30 days no matter what.

    Only a total fool would not cancel your Sprint contract within the
    next 30 days. It's totally in your best interest to cancel *any*
    cellular contract for free whenever you can.

    Why is being under contract better than not being under contract?
    It's not, at all. Just call them and cancel, document the date and
    time and whom you talked to. Follow it up with a letter.

    Generally, no- cancelling the "contract" using an opt-out requires
    cancelling the service as well. The theory is that the change now makes
    thats service unsuitable/undesirable for your needs.

    Yes- cancellation- not continuance without a contract.

    And you lose service that you were possiby happy with, and are now free to
    sign a new contract with another carrier. Where's the advantage to that?
