Verizon was taken to court in California over early cancellation; in legal babel, it is called liquidated damages. Verizon lost the class action suit. I don't know what other states have followed suit. California has an extreme population of lawyers, some of whom are under-employed. Look at the mischief they get into! Nationaly, they become federal politicians - think George W Bush and Barak Obama.
Cancelling a rental contract on an apartment is a similar situation to cancelling a cell phone contract, but more money.

Oh, I had issues w/Sprint! Had to pay for early cancellation of my daughter's contract when her reception in Oklahoma (moved from CA) was unsatisfactory. When I had the same problem, but worse--I was taking them to small claims court when for some reason they gave in. Consumer Cellular--NO CONTRACT.
Thought you'd never ask!
I've had excellent and economic service w/Consumer Cellular for several (five) years now. No contract, change my plan anytime I wish, I can confer w/them to see which is best, etc. etc. (Oh, and I get a ten-dollar credit for every new account I produce--none yet).
