    I've got a stupid question. Isn't the ETF like $375 now? Assuming you paid the promotional price of $199 why didn't you just pay retail for it? You would have actually saved money. :eek:

    that fee goes down, the longer you've had the phone the less the ETF will be. it goes down 10.00 per month for advance devices (350.00 EFT) and 5.00 for others (175.00 ETF)

    do you have any "dumb" phones laying around? Just program the "dumb" phone to the line you are wanting to cancel and drop all options off that line, then all you have to pay is the $10/month add a line fee, and no ETF. the contract is for the line itself, not for the line and the data package. Just a thought.

    If you're already on a family plan with limited minutes, this works well. But if you're on an individual plan, the cost of switching to a family plan with only two lines is much higher. Two-line family plans are $30 more per month than individual plans, for family plans that have at least as many minutes as the individual plan. For unlimited plans, it's $50 per month more.

    I realize that in this scenario, nobody would want unlimited minutes on the 2nd line, but you can't get unlimited minutes on only one line in a family plan.
