There is this great Video Tutorial: How to Get Out of Your Verizon Contract Without an Early Termination Fee by Ely Rosenstock of Crastinate.com.
I enjoyed watching it, it is just over nine minutes long, and learning how, by using Verizon’s own wording, you can get out of your contract. However it sounds like a lot of work, i.e. Ely Rosenstock said he spoke with five different people before his contract was terminated. But I do want to get out of AT&T soon and use the lovely iPhone 3G.
Crastinate.com has a series of articles of Ely Rosenstock trying and eventually canceling his contract.

Finally there is the AT&T Refer-A-Friend program. Every time an AT&T person refers a friend, that person gets an AT&T $25 gift card and the friend does too. If you don’t have a friend, email Ely Rosenstock to refer you so that both you and he get the $25 gift card.
