How to minimize Qwest DSL Contract Termination

I just found out to minimize your contract termination cost. Call qwest and cancel your phone. If you are under contract for DSL, tell them you want it put on hibernation, which costs your 9.99/mo. Find out your contract term or ending date and call after that date to cancel. So, if you have 6 months remaining on your contract, you will only have to pay 59.94. Beats a credit ding or court!

So what you're saying is that you don't want to honor your agreement?

Well I wouldn't go that bad. On hibernation it can not be used. Qwest does allow it so more of an option than a not honoring the contract. Qwest is still getting 9.99 a month and does not provide service during that time.
It is better than just skipping on the bill all together. Things sometimes happen and if a legitimate option is available why not take it. Like I said better than just skipping on the bill. Plus hibernation I doubt you continue to get the service.

A question. Does Qwest prorate its early cancellation fee? I think they offered to do that for me. Thing is I did not have one so kept going up the chain of authority at the time to remove it all together.

I thought I read Cell phone companies had the same thing & only had to pay something like $15 (you couldn't use the phone) per month

they all just want some money everymonth, with cell phone companies, you cant port the number during the contract period, its an automatic ETF fee (depends on company)

How is that unethical? It was an option provided by qwest...those who live in glass houses...
