The ETF will vary depending on how far you are into your contract

I think Verizon gives you 30 days with no EFT if you cancel before then.
Varies. If I did not add a line I would be paying 500.00 for the Tour.
Adding a line and terminating the old line is only 345.00 for me. Much cheaper.

There is a lot of speculation here that a current customer could cancel with Verizon Wireless, pay the early termination fee, then sign up for a new account via Wirefly.com to get the BlackBerry Tour deal. Even if you were willing to change your phone number, this is not possible -- at least not without incurring a $300 charge.
When you pre-order through authorized Verizon Wireless agent such as Wirefly, you agree to additional terms (which are explicitly explained before you complete the purchase). These terms outline several actions that would invalidate the Equipment Discount you received.
From the web site:
"Our goal is to provide you with the very best purchasing experience possible, including huge savings vs. buying in a retail store. Your wireless device purchase price was reduced by an Equipment Discount of $200 ($300 for PDA's and smart phones; $300 for Netbooks). By accepting this price reduction, you agree to repay this discount if, during the 181 days after your new equipment is activated, you:
This is a standard provision which protects Verizon Wireless from scams and protects Wirefly from theft. Of course, Wirefly would love to be able to offer this deal to current Verizon Wireless customers who are not fully upgrade-eligible, but as you might imagine, a subsidized phone deal can only be offered in circumstances where Verizon Wireless pays Wirefly the associated commission.
If you break any of these contract provisions, except as a result of a documented service quality issue related to the carrier service, you authorize us to charge your credit card in repayment of the Equipment Discount.
- Fail to pay your balance due to Verizon Wireless each month
- Disconnect this Verizon Wireless line of service
- Transfer this equipment to another Verizon Wireless line of service
- Change your Verizon Wireless service rate plan to a lower monthly service rate
- Deactivate the email/data feature if one was required at the point of purchase
- Transfer/port an existing mobile number from another Verizon Wireless account if this is a new line of service
- Replace an existing account with Verizon Wireless with this account if this is a new line
- Return or exchange your wireless device and it is not in its original, new condition with no more than 30 minutes of usage
I hope this helps.
