***Announcement: Welcome to the new Verizon Community! We have merged our Wireless and Fios Communities to bring you the best place to discuss any Verizon product or service, along with all things tech! We have many new features to discuss with you in the coming weeks, but first we want to make sure that all of you who have been active on either of our communities before are able to log in! For many of you, we have been able to merge your Wireless and Fios community accounts so all of your Community contributions are all in one place. If you were active in both communities and you previously used the same My Verizon account to log into both, you’re all set! You will be able to use those same credentials to access the new Community. If one of those accounts was with My Verizon and the other was a Community Member Only account, please use your My Verizon account to log in. Please note that we were only able to merge those accounts that were attributed to the same email address. If you only had one account on either Community, you can log into that account exactly as you have before. For some of our Fios Community members, you may have an issue logging in. If you had an account on the Fios Community and you’re having login issues, please use the Community Member Only login page and use the “Forgot my info” link to reset your password. Once you complete this, you should be able to log in normally. If you continue to have any further issues logging in, please email us at verizon.community.team@verizon.com and we’ll assist you to get you back in the Community! Keep an eye on the Community announcements - we can’t wait to show you what’s in store. The Verizon Community Team

My contract is up on 5/22/2014.  Can anyone tell me what the early termination fee would be if I were to terminate service this week?

This week?  That would be before the 22nd, so you would have 20 months of completed service -

$350-$200 = $150 for a smartphone

$175-$100 = $75 for a basic phone

And that's the phone you had on  the line at the start of the contract, not necessarily the same one that's on the line now.

melonie85,

We're saddened to hear that you are considering this option! We hope to turn things around.

Was there a particular reason you were looking to cancel your service with us? Please share more details.

I am thinking of doing the same. Just paying my ETF and going to AT&T. I'm on my second phone in my two year service (had to buy one off EBAY b/c when my other one bit the dust it was out of warranty) and I really don't feel like paying an extra $20+ a month for a phone. Also AT&T has a cheaper plan compared to what I have and it comes with more. I have two lines and through y'all, that would cost me $150 for just 4 GB of data compared to AT&T 10 GB at $130. That's w/o my discount either, so in all I'd save a bit of money by switching. Verizon has nothing to beat AT&T.

Hello cartuner08. We definitely would be saddened to see you leave the VZW family. We're here to help out! Did you know that we also offer a plan similar to the one you are looking for? Our 10 GB More Everything plan starts at $100.00, and just like the service you are considering, if you are on our Edge program for your next device/s, your smartphone line fee is also reduced to $15.00. Two lines on the 10 GB plan would also cost $130.00. Your employee discount (if available) will still apply to the $100.00 plan price.

The monthly totals come out to about the same (between both companies) when you include the monthly phone payment, and taxes. Here are a few links to help go over all these details, cartuner08. Let us know if you have any additional questions!

Hello,

I was basing all my info off the website. The website doesn't mention

anything about receiving the $15 off if I was on the edge plan. I believe

the website has it listed for $150 ( might be incorrect as I don't have it

up ATM) for the 10 GB plan.

You do realize to get that plan at At&t you have to be on their Next plan( same as Verizon's Edge ) which means paying full price for the phone over time. Or paying for them all upfront. In at&t's case you pay over 20 months if you want to upgrade after 12 months or over 26 months if you want to upgrade after 18 months. And the monthly cost of the phone is in addition to the $130. Unless as I said, you pay for the full retail cost all upfront.

Verizon has that exact same plan except you pay over 24 months and you can upgrade again after 12 months. If you were on Verizon's edge plan with 10 GB of data you'd pay $15 for each line plus $100 for the data for a total of $130 just like at&t. And of course the montly cost of the phones. Point is you're not saving with at&t.

I'm about to leave for the above reasons, because Verizon isn't getting any of the decent phones coming out and because of the utterly horrible update to the GSIII that they never fixed. You end up with two choices, either the HTC One(M8) or the GS5. Neither interest me, I would much rather have the Oppo Find 7, OnePlus One, or Sony Xperia Z2. Verizon needs to up it's game if it expects to keep customers.

Do the math, you pay over the full cost of a high end phone over a 2 year contract.

Cost of phone up front - $200 or more

Cost difference between edge plan access and contract access with 10gb - $25 ($15 edge $40 contract)

Total over 2 years - $25 x 24 = $600 + $200 = $800
