Verizon: Still Evil
So Verizon will let you change your plan without re-upping your contract (opens in new tab). That's Good.
Verizon, like all carriers, are very unforgiving about letting you get out of contracts early without paying early termination fees. That's Bad.
Verizon can choose to cancel your contract on you for "good cause" and then still charge you the early termination fee. That's

Sorta makes two empty cans o' corn and a bit of string look a little more appealing as a communication option. The Green Giant won't be charging you any early termination fees. He "stands for goodness", not evil. If only tin cans ran Windows Mobile.

AT&T is doing something similar for their internet service:"AT&T's new Terms of Service give AT&T the right to suspend your account and all service "for conduct that AT&T believes"..."(c) tends to damage the name or reputation of AT&T, or its parents, affiliates and subsidiaries." Source

You can downgrade your plan as long as your main line is a plan above 49.95 (may be higher) I believe. Adding text plans, data, etc don't extend your contract, but changes to the minutes does.
