Re: Sprint changed the policies


From what this says, we are not making any material change. It looks like, we are adding mobile adds which would be relevant to the specific user, however this is optional and you can opt out using the directions provided. This is not a scenario which would increase your cost of service and impact you financially, so in other words, we wouldn't allow you out of your contract without an ETF.

You can easily find our terms and conditions via

Is there a specific reason you're looking into terminating? I'd be glad to offer you some assistance if need be.
