I thought all carriers had to wave the ETF if they couldn't provide you service where your bill is sent to.

I know several people who've done this ironically with VZW.

go to
http://www.sprint.com/coverage »
type in your address, if it comes up in a coverage area then its $200 per line, if you zoom in and its in a white(non-coverage) area then you should have been able to get out of the agreement with no etf.

if it shows service get airave


Right, get Airwave. Pay even more a month because Nextel (Since this is the Nextel forum) can't provide you service. ๐Ÿ˜ก

Wait, did I just say pay a company more because they can't provide you with what your already paying for? ๐Ÿคจ

Dose Airwave even work with Nextel? ๐Ÿ˜ฒ

No, it doesn't. But Verizon and T-Mobile also provide similar services.

Oh, I know the others have this type of service. I think TMO was the first, understandably with their smaller coverage area. But it would appear that the other carrier's ears perked up and thought "hey that would be a great way to gouge our customers even more a month."
And maybe in the case of the original poster it's another way to keep customers from breaking their contract due to lack of coverage?
"What, you don't get coverage?" "Do you have broadband internet?" "Great, here's a wireless router plug it in and you'll have coverage now." "And your next bill is due tomorrow." ๐Ÿ˜•

the charges for hotspot @ home and airave arent much. and if your service works everywhere else you are, but you have patchy coverage at home, its def worth it. plus with sprint you can normally get it for free.

Yep, in about a year and a half, I've never seen one customer that pays for Airrave. Not the equipment, not the service. Even if you have to pay the service, what's an extra $10 a month to avoid a $200 ETF?

Airave equipment runs 100$

The basic monthly cost is 4.99 per month.
For $10 per month one phone will have the ability to make unlimited calls thru the device without using anytime minutes.
For $20 per month 5 lines would have this ability.

Moving out of coverage does not negate the contract you signed. Some people complain and manage to get out of it, but it's not an out to the contract.

Interesting. You're held to a contract to pay for services that aren't being delivered. I don't know what (my) sprint contract says, but I'd make a strong argument. I know that if it's a documented issue (coverage map, multiple calls), ATT will waive an ETF

Wow, it's actually not in the terms and conditions, but if you move somewhere outside of Sprint coverage, and have a proof of address that shows with the current coverage maps that you have no coverage, you will not be required to pay ETF.

Call Sprint back, ask for account services and ask about Airave. Mini tower in your house runs off younr internet service.
