    I am wondering if anyone has done this or is it ok to do:

    1. Buy tmobile GN2 on contract, $300 (maybe try to find it cheaper, I think walmart gives out $100 gift cards w/contract)
    2. Cancel contract, $200 fee
    3. Start t-mobile prepaid $30/month plan with the GN2

    Would this work ok? Better then paying $700 contract-free (just saw t-mobile offering it for $649).

    I tried this once with AT&T. You have to return the phone otherwise they charge you the full retail price!

    If I may be so bold as to point you to my thread asking the virtually the same question...

    http://forums.androidcentral.com/goo...after-etf.html

    Some people shared some good insight...

    (Not really sure how to make links)

    edit: nvm...guess I do know how...

    I just called cs today and I was told my etf is $200 after 29 days of service. I will cancel it tonight and pay the etf

    I like the phone but tmo or simple mobile have too many call drops in my area.
