    Is the $175 fee for each phone on a plan or for the whole plan? I'm in
    a plan with my family, I think it's the Free and Clear plan with
    Vision, two year contract. My parents will let me get off the plan and
    go to Verizon if I pay all the associated fees, and they'll let me
    have the phone I have now for $100, and I'm going to sell it on ebay
    and use the profit (it should got for $150 at least) to help pay for a
    Verizon phone. So do I have to pay $175 to remove my phone from my
    family's plan, or will sprint remove it for free.

    The reason is because Sprint doesn't work where I want to use it. My
    parents don't use the phones much so they don't mind, they mostly got
    the plan to keep in contact with my sister and me. They're kinda
    technophobes, and they're paranoid of getting extra charges, so they
    won't even let me download ringers or games, even if I pay them back.
    That's partly why I want to get out of their plan and get my own
    Verizon plan, 100% mine to do whatever I want with.

    Thanks,
    Keith

    Until recently, Add-a-Phones did not ordinarily carry term agreements
    ("contracts") of their own, so you should be able to cancel without a
    termination fee.

    You can download various ringers and games from public Web sites for free
    (assuming you subscribe to Vision). Of course, free games don't generally meet
    the quality level of the games Sprint offers.

    If you signed up for your plan before September 1, then the
    Add-A-Phones are NOT under contract so you cancel all but the primary
    line without paying the $150 ETF. If you got your plan after September
    1, they're all under contract.

    Last March I changed plans to a Vision plan and added my Wife onto the plan
    (it was a subsidized phone .. an A460 for $30). In the paperwork we
    received, it specifically mentioned a $150 ETF for each line. So, my advice
    to you is to check your contract (usually printed on the reciept). I think
    that if your phone is subsidized (most are if you buy them at retail
    outlets) you are likely bound by an ETF.

    That is not true at all! Both of our phones are bound by an ETF, and our
    plan and phone purchase is from the end of March. I purchased one phone
    from Costco to replace my phone (A400 -> A500) and I purchased an A460 for
    my wife from the Sprint PCS store for $30. We are on a F&C 500 minute plan
    with an add-a-phone.

    One would think that if you are a student or new graduate, moving to
    where Sprint can not provide service some accomodation can be made.

    Maybe not, at least for SprintPCS the Early Termination is Fee is $150,
    not the $175 fee verizon charges.

    Actually Sprint does work where I go, but very very badly. Voices are
    all garbled unless I stand completely still. Sometimes it goes into
    digital roaming on Verizon and everything's good then.

    I'll just give them a call today when i get home to ask them about it.

    Don't ask, make them produce. Tell them: The phone is "Not Fit for
    Purpose"; what can you do for me? i.e. Here is my suggestion:

    1. I return phone, you waive ETF

    2. I get an FCA plan with no 50% limit.

    3. I write to State Attornet General that
    you are practicing a "Deceptive Trade Practice"
    namely requiring me to stay on contract when you can'y provide
    service.



    GOOD LUCK and report back

    If he reports back after already posting his problem, he runs the risk of
    being called a liar or a troll.

    I started my plan in April directly from Sprint and there is no such
    verbage in my contract that I could find. Although it does not
    specifically say there is NO fee on the add a phones, It does mention
    the fee on the paperwork for the first line.

    If you started your plan in April and have not had your contract
    restarted since September 1 then there are no contracts on
    Add-A-Phones.

    If he starts posting as if every thread is about his circumstances,=20
    quite likely. If he just reports on his own situation, not at all.

    Jeepers - you do that, sometimes bragging you don't know (like when Treo 600 is

    My purchase (for the second phone) was directly from a Sprint (not Horizon)
    retail store. That may be what the difference is. You can always call and
    ask them what the ETF and then naively ask if it is for both lines. Of
    course, the rep may not know what he/she is talking about anyway ...
