Cell Phone Companies Informative - Dump Your Cell Phone Company
MINNESOTA -- You can now dump your cell phone provider for a nominal fee ranging from $15 to $20, instead of paying hefty fees to break your contract from your provider.
CelltradeUSA.com and Resellular.com have been around for about a year, these sites let you jettison your unwanted contract or swap it with another user for a service that you prefer.
These sites create an online venue through which people who want to buy, sell or swap a cell phone can meet and negotiate. If you want to transfer your account, you must call your carrier and make a request to transfer your phone and contract to someone else. Carriers go along because, although they lose one customer, thy get another and the contract is still ultimately honored.
If your looking for another escape route, pay close attention to the fine print in any contract updates your carrier sends you. For example, in January Verizon offered some of its customers an opportunity to quit their cell plans and pay no termination fees because it raised the rates on its text message service, thereby changing the terms of the contract.
