10$ extra fees
Because of these new fees, can i cancel my contract without an ETF?
My contract began in august 2010. so i really dont know how those things work.
but i simply cant afford my smartphone bill at this time and am looking to join my parents family plan.
any info from someone who knows about these things would be great. i tried doing research but had a hard time understanding the specifics
Also my freaking capacitive buttons keep farting out. they become unresponsive. when i take it in, will i get a refurbished phone back?EPIC 4G

Due to the fact that this change had no impact on you as you were already paying it, I am quite sure that this change won't allow you to break the contract.
The change didn't currently impact anyone until they go to get a new smartphone as everyone else who wasn't paying the extra $10 was grandfathered in until they change phones.

yeah, unfortunately, this does not represent a change in your contract, so you can't get out of the ETF. Now, sprint i think allows you to downgrade your service, so you could get rid of the data plan, but then you'd be required to swap to a lower tier phone. Other than that, your only way out is the ETF.

@shaundizzle, I think they are all correct. This won't work as an excuse to break your contract without penalty.

If I need a replacement phone, if they are not able to fix my capacitive buttons, will I then be forced to pay the 10$ which is essentially a 20$ when including the 4g price.
Because I read that if you swap esn then you have to pay the extra money. Although I am now getting confused on whether or not this new expense is only for 3g phones. And 4g phones are excluded because they are already charged the 10$
So from my understanding, this 10$ nonsense is just to get everyone who uses data to pay. So basically turning the 69.99 plan into a 79.99 plan
EDIT: Sorry if this post has grammar errors. I'm typing on my phone using the SwiftKey app, and it takes some getting used to.EPIC 4G

The $10 fee is for premium data. 4g phones have been charged this fee since the evo. Sprint is now making the fee apply to all smartphones. You will not be doubly charged this fee. Also, a replacement phone should not have any effect on your contract.
