    Call them and freeze it so you dont incur any crazy charges, but yes I think you will have to pay ETF even of it was stolen.

    Call Verizon and tell them what happened NOW. If you don't they have the chance of tacking on extreme charges.

    I would like to cancel my plan with them too since my company's giving my a free iphone so would I pay the whole 375 to cancel the plan since I've only been with verizon for 4 months? And how much is the ETF?

    If you want to terminate your contract now , you have to pay 350$ ETF . They could sell you a refurb Droid way cheaper than 350$ if you talk nicely to a manager at a corporate store , they have a program for lost or damaged phones .

    @ OP, if you have the insurance for the phone they will cancel the line but send you a new phone...

    Convenient that it was stolen around the time the Incredible came out. :)

    It would depend on your contract. You can also move the phone number over to another Verizon phone

    Stolen...riiiggghhhttt....

    Assuming this is true, the ETF amount depends on when you signed up. Before or after they increased the ETF? I believe they changed it on November 15 of last year.

    Before=$175
    After=$350

    Last I checked we are NOT reps of Verizon...the only people that can answer your questions is a Verizon Rep..call them and ask them. That is the only way to know for sure.

    Unless you are just trying to get info for "future ideas" or "just in case" situations, you are wasting your time asking here instead of calling Verizon directly :)

    Let's say the phone is stolen and give the member the benefit of the doubt. If he doesn't have something like Mobile Defense or Wave Secure then he has no other choice but to call Verizon and have them turn off service.

    Now he wants to find out about his contract. That's been covered in previous post. So before this thread turns into one in which assumptions are made lets close this one now. Good luck in dealing with Verizon, OP. And I hope you have success with your iPhone.
