Google is also charging an ETF for the Nexus One
You probably don’t find paying for early termination fees cool, but carriers do make a point when imposing one, since you’ve first bought the phone at a discounted price, which means compensation should be paid to the carrier. In the case of the HTC Nexus One, the moment after the 14-day return policy period has ended, you’ll have to pay from $50 to $200 to T-Mobile, should you decide to cancel your contract. However, you should bear in mind that Google is also charging those users, who purchase the Nexus One at a subsidized price. You will be charged the difference between the phone’s retail price and the price you have paid for it. For example, if you have bought the N-One for $179, you will be charged $350 ($529 - $179 = $350), in addition to the ETF you’ve paid T-Mobile. Google will impose the "Equipment Recovery Fee" if you decide to skip out during the first 120 days of service and the 14-day grace period has ended.
