Verizon's $350 ETF list slowly shrinking - thankfully

Verizon's $350 ETF list slowly shrinking - thankfully
There are probably plenty of people out there that are baffled with what Verizon classifies as an “advanced device.” The obvious things come to mind such as smartphones that are data intensive and costly compared to other types of handsets. It’s also worth noting that these devices are accompanied with a hefty, and we mean heft, early termination fee of $350 – making it one of the costliest in the industry to cancel a contract. Big Red is easing up a bit in light of their public issue with the FCC in regards to its new ETF policy – which in turn means they are removing 10 multimedia devices off the list that requires the $350 ETF. Some of these include the Samsung Rogue, Motorola Krave, and a bunch of LG handsets – many of these would be considered as feature phones. Customers who recently purchased these handsets can rest somewhat a bit easier knowing that the gigantic $350 ETF looming above them isn’t there anymore if they plan on leaving the carrier.
