Adam Dachis—If you're stuck in your Verizon contract and want out, you're in luck. The Consumerist notes that Verizon just updated its terms to increase a regulatory fee, which is great news for unhappy customers. You have to agree with this change in order to continue using their service and that happens automatically if you do nothing. If you want out, you have 60 days from July 1st to let them know you do not accept these new terms (found here). Canceling is pretty easy. Just give Verizon a call, let them know you do not agree with this recent change and want to cancel your service. Do not tell them why or they will try to sell you on additional services. If they try to anyway, just stop them before they get into it and say no.

This is not to say you should cancel your service, but to let you know that you have the option to do so if you want to but have been sticking around thanks to a contract. Technically, you could also get out of your contract and just sign right back up to get a new phone discount ahead of your time, but that's not really the nicest thing to do.
