    Why are they ridiculous? I dont understand. If you complete your contract, you don't pay it. If you don't want it, you buy full retail. If you breach a CONTRACT and then want to leave, then they made the money back for the phone they sold you all cheap like. People are so upset about it and I don't know why. If you didn't want a contract or an ETF, you shouldn't have got the phone.

    You're absolutely correct. If one is sincere about the contract they sign, what is there to worry about? I am not necessarily a VZW fan but in this situation I have to agree with VZW and their ETF.

    Yeah, I have never understood the problem with it. Most carriers will cut the prices on these phones a huge amount. If you cancel, they recoup a bit of that cost. If you have a legit reason for wanting to cancel, and no not something like "my dad can beat up your dad, so im canceling" there is usually a resolution for that. Otherwise it is honestly a non issue and a null point. The main reason is in place is avoid getting ripped off by those who buy a phone cheap, cancel the deal and then sell the phone and make a profit. So thank those people, Verizon just reacted to their shenanigans.

    Can we just lock this thread down? We've debated the ETF's multiple times.

    From our Forum Rules & Policies Forum....

    Play Nice, Be Helpful, and have Respect!

    This means keep the language clean, keep your posts polite, and don’t get into arguments over dumb things. If somebody responds to a thread you posted in poor fashion, ignore it, and the moderation team will quickly clean it up (you can always message or email a moderator at any time if you observe anything that is in poor taste/against the rules). Think back to what your parentals and teachers used to lecture - if you don't have something nice to say, don't say anything at all.

    Always remember that we are all unique and at different levels here - some of us are experienced BlackBerry users and forum junkies, while others are just starting out. If you’re on the experienced side, have patience for those just joining in on the fun and be helpful. With a little patience and a little help they won’t be newbies for long. Also remember that it is our differences that keeps this place interesting. If everyone was from the same place and at the same experience level it would be boring. This is a worldwide community united by a common interest - our love, or addiction as some would call it, for the BlackBerry!
