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.
