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?
