Did you even check this out? To my knowledge if you sign up with a
carrier and move to an area that they do not serve they usually will
let you out of a contract. They may need some proof such as a utility
bill, but more than likely they would be let out of any contractual
obligation. If no one checked that out that's yet another error that
they've made.

<sigh> No one needs to play the "victim" in this day and age. You do
some not so hard research on the net and you find an answer! Just
typing "cellular phone basics" into Google brings up over 800,000
hits! Going to google and asking the question "cellular service
independence missouri" brings up several results including a Google
page showing all registered cellular towers around Independence. It
also shows you which services are available.

[TELECOM Digest Editor's Note: You are wrong! I am no where close to
Independence, MO; I am in Independence, KS, about 300 miles southwest
and I know what cell towers we have around here. Independence, MO
is a suburb of Kansas City, MO, which is nowhere near me. But I will
explain to Justin how to use Google and look for the information he
will need if he wishes to cancel his contract. He will be returning
back home to Orlando, FL in about a week. PAT]
