I need to get 2 off contract phones for both me and the wife. Instead of paying full price for both what if I got a new account with the bogo and then immediately cancelled them paying the etf?

Is there anything rule or fine print that I'm missing here?

Sounds like this way it's 950 vs the 1200 straight up.

I actually did that but with the S5, i have the M8 already, but I am getting the S5 so I'm using the BOGOF deal so if anything depends which one i stay with, I can sell them for good amount where i pay off the etf of those 2 added lines and still have money left in my pocket

sounds stupid but only way i can decide which device i will stay with

i did this through newegg. if you haven't owned the device for more than 90 days they will add on a device fee to the etf. I can't remember the exact amount but its a good chunk of the phone cost

14 days because that's when the Buyers Remorse period ends and the ETF goes into effect.

Dropbox is a great place to store files that you need on the go. Android apps like TiBu can leverage Dropbox

according to that i can return anytime and if i dont return the devices i pay 350 per even if it is in the 14 day period.. sounds like i can cancel within 24 hours as soon as the account is active.

why do you need to cancel the contract right away, why not wait till you change providers? why the rush, what is the benefit?

to explain my situation. im already with verizon. i have 5 plans on a family plan with no upgrades and unlimited data.

i was planning to open a new account, get 2 m8s with the bogof deal. so thats 200. cancel the plan, so thats 700 and then use the m8s on my original plan. this way i spend 900 as opposed to 1200 buying 2 m8s outright.
