just ask a question, a friend isnt on a contract but is on a lease and pays $35 extra a month. can she give back the phone and cancel service?

I have never heard of a leased phone.
I'm going with no, only because this makes no sense.

If you are writing about the Next plan, it is NOT a lease. It is a purchase in installments.

Then we agree.

.....something tells me she doesn't get it either. Maybe she will explain enough for us to figure it out.


Just a guess, but if she is on the Next plan she is not on a contract and might be paying $35 a month on her installment to purchase a phone. It isn't a lease.

Verizon has a similar plan.

she's on the next plan, thats what she failed to tell me. another question, is their a way to make bigger payments to pay it off faster, like for example pay $35 one month and then $40 the next?

I don't think so. You have to make the specified payment or pay off the installments in full.
