ETF?

New job. They handle the phone allowance as a corp phone so I will close down my current Sprint line.

My plan was to sell my S3 on ebay and just take it in the shorts cause the breakeven is 3 months.

So my question is has anyone had any success negotiating the ETF down.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks

John

Just from a logical point of view it would make no sense for Sprint to reduce an ETF on someone they're already losing as a customer.

The ETF is the price you agreed to pay if you early terminated.

 

There are people that scam there way out of ETF, but not really the appropriate thing to do. I don't know of anyone negotiating the price down outside of outright scamming.

Recently upgraded, the only thing that changed from last time was the $350 would go down $20 for every month after one year.

 

But other than that I'm not sure you can negotiate the ETF.

You can tell them you are being deployed to another country on something....other than that your ETF would go down every month.

Unless you could provide documented proof of such a claim, you'd just be wasting your time and their's.

Agreed on the latter count. Discussion of trying to defraud Sprint is verboten.

Sheesh...sorry...won't do it again

 

No "sheesh" or apology necessary. Just know that the intent of S4GRU is to help each other learn about Sprint, Network Vision, and general wireless topics. But S4GRU is not here to help find the latest ETF loophole, tethering workaround, etc. There are plenty of other sites for that kind of unsavory activity.

I have not changed service since 1988. I would never defraud our service men.

In my mind it is a fair question. I thought maybe someone may have insight into a sprint program for such instances.

Heck I even asked why the company didn't have a Sprint deal. Just cause Sprint wrote it in the contract doesn't mean you can't ask. Over those 25 years I have spent $35000 in service and who knows how much in phones to use that service. In my mind. $200 + $350 = $550 for a phone is laden with "wiggle room"

Pillow, with a bit of condescension, all in here probably have negotiated on things in their lives and that is not really the point of most of the replies to your question...what is germane to the discussion is that this question belongs elsewhere not on a site that has at its core mission the understanding of NV, its rollout in various locales, and implications for Sprint subs; this question would be better put to the Sprint Users Group forum or any of probably three forums on wireless communications..no offense meant..just saying..

I don't have a problem with asking, "is there any legitimate way to get out of paying my ETF when I close my Sprint account?"

 

Asking for or giving advice to be dishonest, deceptive or in violation of Sprint's T&C's or the law is where the conversation draws the line in regards of our posting guidelines...and common morality.

    • Did my drive from PHX to SEA & got to experience the terribleness that is the totem lake area. Impressive, speed test didn't complete either time.
    • Weird that they'd go back to the Edge+. Would think they'd let folks use the S22 just like with Genesis. In other news, St. Louis has 10x10 n71 + n66 SDL live. A bit more info here:  
    • Wonder what other spectrum the auto industry can use, how much of the 5.9GHz was being used, and if 30MHz will be enough 20 or 30 years from now. The auto industry has had it for 20 years sure, but technology can move really slow.  It isn't good.  It isn't ready for real world applications. The hardware is too slow to be able to process enough reliable data. It is too expensive.  Etc. I would argue that we are just getting to the point where features that I would assume could use 5.9GHz are just now hitting mass market as the code is better, hardware is not only significantly faster but also cheaper. The baseline trim models still lack a lot of safety features but the next trim up usually comes with a bunch of goodies I'd assume could make use of 5.9GHz. Just imagine where we were in 2005, 2010, 2015.  Mostly just assumptions without enough knowledge of the spectrum use, so a hint of skepticism. With the what, 1.2GHz that opened up in the 6GHz range, getting 45MHz out of 5.9GHz is very meh.
    • Cool find! Been there since 2018 according to Cellmapper. The only other time I've seen them leave up a temp site like this for a long period of time was when a nearby site is temporarily inoperable like the one in Red Hook Houses. That doesn't seem to be the case here and it's pretty much a GMO site at this point. My best guess is that T-Mobile wanted to put a site there to fill in coverage but because it's on LGA's grounds getting the actual permission to do so is extremely complex so they worked out a deal with the Port Authority to put up a COW in the meantime.  
    • Would this be a T-Mobile COW outside LGA Terminal A? eNB 49106 seems to line up to its position, plus the arm for the trailer to hook onto a truck says T-Mobile. Here is the NYC streetcar view the image was pulled from.     For all the years I have been monitoring the DAS, I have never gotten -55 or better, even after passing by every antenna in a station that is deep enough to have 0 outside macros reaching in. The SNR is still 20+, so its probably designed that way on purpose.
