Thread Details

Back of the March bill...

"Tax & Surcharge Base Changes
Effective 4/1/13, Sprint will be changing tax systems for charges such as insurance & premium content. This update may cause an increase of taxes and/or surcharges on your bill for these products. For details of taxes & surcharges, visit sprint.com/taxesandfees ."

I called and the rep I spoke to said her or her supervisor were unaware of whats changing...but I know I want out of my contract (as do some of you people)...so...might be a way out of Sprint ETF free.

There ya go.

CONFIRMED! Got my account notated for cancellation on April 1st, 2013.

Call the executive office if you want to get out.

I suggest you call the switchboard and ask for executive customer service.
Switchboard (855) 848-3280

Executive CS agents:
Michale Govea (817) 215-3570
Vanessa Brown (817) 215-3602
Diana (817) 215-3656
direct lines but good luck in getting a call back if you do not have a case open


For Sprint Legal contacts, use the following link and search by their corporate headquarter zip code (66251):

lol, that's silly. You don't have to pay ETF anyway

Sprint has been getting much smarter (read more evil) about that, so i'd read it very carefully

Trying to get out of Sprint phone connect that I've not used for about 5mos. So far any attempts I've made have been denied. They still want $120 ETF.

Switch your prl to verizon and force it to stay on verizon towers. Stream a nice HD video on youtube for a month. I am sure the following month sprint will kick you out and waive your ETF since you are no longer profitable.

Would love to hear if anyone is able to use this successfully. I am desperately looking to get out of my Sprint contract. I've got 2 SERO lines, which I would give away, but I've heard that the TOL is hard to do now... Rate change to get me out ETF free might be my only hope.

It used to be easy to get out with such tax or surcharge increases. Now I just force roam on data to be let out etf free.

How do you go about changing your prl to a verizon tower and keeping it on there? I am very interested in doing that. Is that going to screw up the phone at all? Thanks

No it doesn't ruin the phone.

Can be done on android and iPhones. Have it on my iPhone 5. Instructions can be found on the Xda forums or Mac rumors forum.

Anyone have any luck with this yet? I'm highly considering the thought of switching to VZ.
