Sprint is going to be increasing their Administrative charge from $.99/mo to $1.50/mo a line. This should be showing on your latest bill
Administrative Charge Increase &Terms & Conditions Changes for Consumers
Effective 9/9/11, the Administrative Chargewill increase to $1.50 per line for customersthat receive the charge. For details, visitsprint.com/taxesandfees. In addition, theSprint consumer Terms (Ts&Cs) are changing. Please review them carefully at your local Sprint store or sprint.com/termsandconditions
According to the terms and conditions a change like this let's you cancel your contract within 30days of the change. The change goes into effect 9/9 so you basically have until 9/30 to cancel your contract.
When You Don't Have To Pay An Early Termination Fee
You aren't responsible for paying an Early Termination Fee when terminating Services: (a) provided on a month-to-month basis; (b) consistent with our published trial period return policy; or (c) in response to a materially adverse change we make to the Agreement as described directly below.
Our Right To Change The Agreement & Your Related Rights
We may change any part of the Agreement at any time, including, but not limited to, rates, charges, how we calculate charges, or your terms of Service. We will provide you notice of material changes—and may provide you notice of non-material changes—in a manner consistent with this Agreement (see "Providing Notice To Each Other Under The Agreement" section). If a change we make to the Agreement is material and has a material adverse effect on Services under your Term Commitment, you may terminate each line of Service materially affected without incurring an Early Termination Fee only if you: (a) call us within 30 days after the effective date of the change; and (b) specifically advise us that you wish to cancel Services because of a material change to the Agreement that we have made. If you do not cancel Service within 30 days of the change, an Early Termination Fee will apply if you terminate Services before the end of any applicable Term Commitment.
I called 18882114727 then 4, 5, 2 for cancellations. I spoke to an Alyssa. Basically told her I wanted to cancel my contract. She asked why and I said its because they were increasing their Administrative charge and that voids the contract. She asked me what else is causing me to switch carries and I told her slow 4G speeds and som
e other crap. She said she can cancel my service and I told her I wanted to port my phone number. She said no problem. She was ready to cancel right then and there with no Early Termination Fee but I told her I wanted to wait until the end of the billing cycle to switch. She said no problem and that my contract will be cancelled with Sprint whenever I port my phone number. Just to clarify I asked her if I was basically on a "month to month" until I ported my number and she said yes. I just went on Sprint.com to look at my account and my contract details now say "contract fulfilled as of 7/26/11" I have the EVO 3D now and pretty much extended my contract for 2 years just a month ago so this is awesome.Just so you know, having your "contract fulfilled" doesn't mean you're now eligible for upgrades it just means you can leave anytime you want with no fee. Verizon is willing to give me $250 (paid $199) to trade in my EVO 3D but I'm still deciding what carrier to switch to. I may stick with Sprint if they can make me eligible for upgrade pricing and wait for the Iphone 5. Let me know if this works for you guys. Good Luck.
