Sprint Adjusts Early Termination Fee (in Preparation for iPhone 5?)

Sprint has changed the Early Termination Fee and Upgrade Fees, see below:

9/9/11: Early Termination Fee (ETF) Change & Upgrade Fee Increase
  • ETF Policy Change - New policy requires up to a $350 ETF for Advanced Devices (smartphones, tablets, netbooks, notebooks) activated on or after 9/9/11.
  • Upgrade Fee Increase - The upgrade fee assessed when an existing Sprint customer purchases a new or refurbished device will increase from $18 to $36.

Many are speculating that these changes are due to the iPhone 5 that is rumored to be coming to Sprint next month.
