    I have the t-mobile G1 (stood in line overnight to get it back in October 2008), and will be switching to the HTC EVO when it releases. The ETF is $200!! Making the phone roughly $400....any way I can get out of the contract without paying the ETF? I did notice in my last 2 bills/last 2 months with t-mobile, the "Federal Universal Service Fund" fee went up, each month. Is that a breach of contract or increase in fee where I can argue to get out of t-mobile with no ETF?

    Also, I know Verizon won't "buy out" a contract from a competitor to get a customer to switch to Verizon, but Verizon will give "discounts" equaling that ETF fee so the customer switches. Have you heard of Sprint doing this?

    The EVO is worth it. My upgrade isn't until October, so I'm paying full retail price.

    I dont know if this applies to t-mobile as well, but i do know that with vzw your etf goes down incrementally as you reach the end of your contract.
