    Cancel a Verizon Contract?
    Has anybody been successful with getting out of a verizon wireless contract? I really want the iPhone 3g but am locked in for another 14 months with verizon.

    I've heard of people getting out of there contracts due to a small increase in text message charges, but I have the unlimited plan so that excuse doesn't work for me

    One way to get out of contracts is to transfer it to another person willing to take over the contract. You can put a free advertisement for your cellphone and contract on Craigslist.org in your area, meet the person in person and talk with Verizon customer service and do the transfer.

    I did something like that with T-Mobile, not sure if Verizon allows transfering contracts, check with their customer service.

    I'll give it a shot, but not sure how many people are looking to get into a Verizon contract these days.

    Thanks for the tip!

    You're welcome.

    The ad needs to be compelling, also the demand increases when the time left for contract expiry decreases.

    I would get more replies when there was 3 months left on the contract than 12 months.

    It can be a little time consuming to meet people and to find someone to take it over.

    There should be a federal universal service charge or something like that on your bill. Which is charged by Verizon not the government and the amount changes slightly month to month.

    So, what you do is check your bill when you see an increase on the amount, you can call in claim that this has an "adverse material effect" on you and cancel your contract without a fee.

    It'll probably take a while and you'll need to be prepared (read the terms and all) and persistent, but it is a valid argument.

    The only way I know is to pay $175.

    There really needs to be a policy change on that.
