US$ 729 to cancel contract with Nexus One, T-Mobile and Google will charge you ETF.

Nexus One ETF

Wow… Getting the new Nexus One is not too pretty. Seams that T-Mobile and Google, if you cancel your contract after 14 days ( 30 in CA ), will charge you ETF, both of them. From Google side, the fee is 350 while from T-Mobile is 200. But wait, also Google will charge you for the device.. 179, making a big total of US$ 729. Gosh..that is outrageous!!

Please note that the Equipment Recovery Fee is imposed by Google and not your chosen carrier and is in addition to any early termination fees that may be charged by your chosen carrier in connection with termination of your wireless plan prior to fulfillment of your chosen carrier’s service agreement term.

I think is a much better idea to buy the phone unlocked without a contract, that will be way cheaper.!

    Ouch!! I just got a Samsung R810C with 3G and all the bells and whistles from Walmart for $328.99 and with my Straight Talk $45.00pm unlimited usage package I got the same as an I-Phone with NO CONTRACT. They use the Verizon network which is the best, and my kids and I can talk as long as we like And send a zillion texts

    Who cancels after the 14days??? Either you like it or you don't this would seem to stop people who in the past have taken advantage of the carriers discount but not followed through with a contractual obligation. Seems like a lot of Hype about cancellation fees which by definition are intended to make you think twice about canceling. New news please.
