    I am just posting this since I feel I was screwed. I recently cancelled my
    Sprint account. I was billed the early termination fee of $200.00. I can
    live with that.

    I was charged $22.54 in "Government Taxes & Fees" for early termination
    (maybe 6 months early in a 2 year commitment). Sprint was emphatic in
    stating that I should take my concern up with my local government. That
    advice is a euphamism for saying: "you are leaving us, we found we could
    charge you for this, so deal with it." If "the government" came in and said
    to Sprint "we want the taxes on the service that the customer would have
    paid for services he didn't receive" that would almost make more sense to
    me. I know anyone signing a contract now would pay a much lower amount for a
    prorated early termination fee, and I am fine with that. I am not happy with
    Sprint charging me $ for services I didn't receive, on top of the early
    termination fee of $200.00. I hope they stay in business to offer
    competition to any other company I go to. Beyond that, they can become a
    third rate company for all I care.

    I am venting Joel. Try reading between those lines.
    By the way, no need for you to use "caps", since you certainly can't be
    venting...
    But I digress. Maybe that means I no longer need to vent.
    Joy....
