Canceling Sprint Service - Gotcha

So, you got a new Sprint Mobile Broadband card and decided to give it a spin. For whatever reason, you decide it doesn't meet your needs and you call Sprint to cancel your service. You think you have no problem, because you are within your 15 day trial. Here is the big gotcha, when you call Sprint to cancel, the Sprint phone rep will make your cancel effective at the end of your current billing cycle. This may be too late and you may get stuck with having to pay a $200 Early Termination Fee, even if you called within the trial. Ouch!

The simple way around this, when calling to cancel, say, "I want to cancel my Sprint service immediately".

We don't believe this is a smart practice and hope that Sprint will change their ways.
