The only way you could successfully pull this off is if the rep you spoke with didn't do their job properly, and even in that case you would pay more in the long run.

If you want to move from a contract to a no contract plan and you are within the 14 days buyers remorse/exchange period you must return any equipment you received on a subsidy.

Another reason why it wouldn't work is because the $300 price you speak of is on a value plan and therefore a downpayment, so even if the rep didn't do their job properly and switched you to a no contract plan and let you keep the device you would be billed for the remaining $399 on the installment plan and the $200 termination fee for the contract.

so let's do the math $699 plus $200 = $899 or you could do the $60 no contract plan and pay $649 for the device and only pay $709....

Not so slick now that you know the facts
