This is another topic thats "carrier-related" but not sure where to post the topic. Has anyone heard of or used the services of CellTradeUSA ? Its a company that buys out a custoner's cell phone contract if a cunsumer wants to split and not get hit with the up-front ETF. Even if the buyout costs get asorbed into the cost (total amount due or perhaps subsidized and spread out) for the service , it sounds like a good alternative available for customers who feel locked in to an expensive multi-device-family plan-share everything breakup. Or available to an individual who may need to switch carriers due to moving to a location where the current carrier is not good.
