So, getting out of my Sprint contract requires a 150.00 disconnect fee (prorated), and then the iPhone costs 299. Want to replace my broken iPod touch with an iPhone.....
Conflicted. Anyone care to push me one way or the other?

What device are you currently using on Sprint? Anything worth some money to go towards the ETF? As long as you keep making some payments on the ETF it won't mess with you credit. So if you can, switch over and then try to pay 50 bucks over 3 months.

I got the EVO for full price, but had it billed to my account, so it won't do me much good as ETF leverage. The interesting thought was not having to pay the ETF right away.
What's the cheapest way to get an iPhone on Verizon? The plan, not the phone.

For instance here is VZW with the cheapest calling plan
Unlimited nights and weekends
59.99+29.99. So after taxes you a little over 100 bucks. And remember this is without all the extras you get with sprint listed above.
With Sprint you can get the exact same thing for 69.99 + tax.

Personally, I would NEVER do the payments on the ETF. It might not affect your credit, but that's not a chance I would take. I know it sucks, but honestly, if you can't afford it right now, you should probably wait until you can.
Yeah state tax refund came in... to iPhone or not to iPhone... that is the question. $$$ are only important in that I don't want to spend the whole refund switching carriers.
I guess there is something to be said about waiting. Especially if the iPhone 5 (or whatever) is launched in June.
