Default Has anyone broken their contract to dump storm

Please Login to Remove!

I have so had it with my Storm. My provider (Bell) wants $400.00 to terminate and I am contemplating it. I called tech support today to vent and they said too bad despite spending about $4500 a year for cell, internet, home phone and wife's cell for the last 4 years.

Anyone have any luck getting competitors to ease the pain of termination

Does Bell not carry any other phones you like?

I would look into another device with my carrier before spending that much $$$ on termination fees, but that's just me. I'm on VZW and am quite happy with them.

If you are also unhappy with your carrier and don't mind spending the money on termination fees plus paying for a new device and new activation fees with a new carrier, go for it.

The question is, is it Bell that you are tired of or is it just the Storm? If it is the phone, buy another one outright or stick with it until the end of term. Good luck trying to get out of the contract. You signed it so now you are going to have to live with it.
