yeah I wound up having to just pay the ETF fee on mine, I went with Net10's BYOD AT&T sim card as AT&T has better coverage in the area where I live. The monthly for Net10 is a little over 46 dollars a month with auto-refill so compared to the 91 dollars a month I was spending on Sprint's sub standard service I will have saved enough money in 10 months to recoup the ETF fee. I was less than 19 months left to go on my contract so the ETF was about $389. I ported my old cell number to Google Voice, and am forwarding it to the new number I got when I activated the Net10 account. I did this instead of directly porting it so I can quickly switch service again if Net10's service becomes unacceptable.
I have already paid the ETF so the ESN on my Samsung Galaxy Nexus should be clean, so hopefully I can sell it to someone to recoup part of the ETF fee.
You could have excessively roamed on Sprint for around 3-4 months. They would kick you off without an ETF and give you time to find another service. It is too late now, but everyone take note. The limit is 300 mb/mo for Sprint. I roamed nearly 3 gb/mo. They sent me a letter and gave me a call, but because I no longer work at the place where I got shoddy service, I'm fine with keeping them, so I settled it down a bit.
