I was thinking of cancelling my service with TM, paying the ETF and going on a Prepay plan.
I just looked up the TOS and I'm a bit confused. I received my phones from Costco.com (Wireless Advocates) on 12/5/2012. They were activated prior to my receiving them.
I was wondering, would I still be bound to return the phones to Costco.com (Wireless Advocates) because I've had them less then 90 days??
