Sprint today confirmed to Phone Scoop via email that the company plans to change its early termination fee. A Sprint spokesperson explained, "Beginning September 9, Sprint is introducing a new pro-rated policy for ETFs for customers purchasing advanced devices such as smartphones, tablets, notebooks and netbooks. Customers with these advanced devices will be subject to a $350 ETF, which will be pro-rated based on the number of months remaining, should they decide to cancel service before the end of their service agreement." Prior to this change, Sprint charged $200 ETFs for those breaking contracts early. AT&T and Verizon Wireless have similar $350 pro-rated ETFs.

Well another move that gears towards announcing the iPhone for Sprint.

Also customers can cancel w/o paying ETF because they are raising their administrative charge on 9/9 also
Correct on the free out. I can't blame them for increasing ETF though. If you want a huge subsidy on an advanced phone you should be prepared to stay for the full two years.

Frankly I'd still like to see the US market go away from contracts.
Administrative fee? What a bunch of crap is that?!!!?
You won't be able to cancel sans ETF just because they're adding an admin fee.

Tiered Data Will Be Next

I bet unlimited data will be gone about 3 or 4 months after iPhone releases.
Why, could an iphone use more data then I can having my android attached to my TV streaming netflix allday.
