We love hearing that wireless carriers are making changes to their Terms of Service (ToS) legalese. As much as we love being tied to one wireless carrier for years at a time, any change to the ToS verbiage is grounds for invalidating a wireless contract. Sprint’s latest move to increase their administrative fees (you know, one of the myriad nickel-and-dime fees that carriers love to tack) has opened the door for dissatisfied Sprint customers to jump ship without having to pay the Early Termination Fee (ETF).
Sprint recently upped their administrative fee to $0.75, which gave Sprint customers a chance to cancel their contracts sans ETF until January 1. Apparently, Sprint’s bottom line dictated that they up their admin fee again – this time, to $0.99. Sprint customers now have until January 31 to cancel their Sprint contract without incurring an ETF. If you’ve been considering a switch to a new carrier, now would be a good time to cancel that Sprint contract!
The Palm Pre will be ushering in the all-new Web OS platform as an exclusive on Sprint’s network. We’d imagine now would be a good time to cancel your Sprint contract and wait until Sprint goes live with the Palm Pre – that way you can sign up for a new Sprint contract and get your hands on subsidized Palm Pre.
