you'd get your best answer from sprint directly - why don't you call them?

i'd read that some cell carriers implemented a new pro-rated cancellation fee policy - the less time you had on your contract, the lower the cancellation fee. if sprint also does this, your cancellation fee with a week left will probably be minimal. but if they charge the full amount regardless of the amount of time left, you're better off just waiting for the week to be up...

I say wait the week out.

It'll be more time you're anticipating getting the iPhone - making it all the more precious when you get it.

been waiting since this sommer so I guess one more week won't kill me. Thought my contract was up on the 1st but found out I have to wait until the 19th. I called Sprint today and they said I would be penalized the full amount if I broke the contract before then.

Am I close enough to the end of the contract to switch to AT&T without penalties?
Get the iPhone now and activate it AFTER the 19th. It will give you time to play with it and get really familiar with everything.

I know...I know...BRILLIANT

The last thing you want to do is put yourself in a position where Sprint is still in your pocket while you're trying to leave them behind. I saw your post that says you cant leave til the 19th. Sprint tells a lot of lies. I'd confirm that date again; just to be on the safe side.

Whatever date they give you, I'd wait a few days after that to walk.

I suppose I could dig through my records and look for the original contract papers but thinking back it was just before Christmas when I got my last phone.

Wait for the contract to be up and then get the iPhone. You can't do jack with it until it is activated anyway. Well you could just look longingly at it, but other than that it is worthless unactivated.

I was shopping at the mall for Christmas presents this morning and I stopped by to look at the iPhone in the AT&T store.......... I walked out with an iPhone fifteen minutes later. The sales guy just told me to wait until the 19th to activate it. :)
