Early Termination of Subsidized Nexus One Costs You More Than Unlocked Nexus One

By reading the Nexus One Terms of Sale you come to know that you will be ending up paying an equipment subsidy recovery fee (“Equipment Recovery Fee”) equal to the difference between the full price of the Nexus One without service plan and the price you paid for the Nexus handheld device if you cancel your wireless plan prior to 120 days of continuous wireless service. For example, if the full price of the Nexus one without service plan is $529 USD and the price you paid is $179 USD with a service plan, the Equipment Recovery Fee you will be paying is $350 USD if you cancel within the first 120 days of carrier service.

But if you decide to cancel your Nexus One plan before 14 days you will not be paying much. You will be charged a one-time fee of $45 USD if you decide to cancel the contract and return your Nexus device within the 14 day period. So if you are not much interested in using Nexus One then return within the 14 day period to save the hefty penalties!
