I just got a Nexus 5 from the Google Play store, but I guess I'm still locked in until Aug. 2014 with my existing 2 year plan. I wanted to switch to mobile share as it would save me money since I purchased a phone separate from my contract.
Is there any point in trying to have the ETF waived if I switch plans? Otherwise that $15 savings won't make up for the $175 cancellation fee for almost two years.

There is no ETF for switching to a Mobile Share.
If you do pay the ETF, you do save the $15 a month.

I've heard companies like Sprint/Tmobile did stuff like that. (don't know if they still do)
We're not them.

You can switch to the Mobile Share plan without paying the ETF, but my understanding is that you would still pay $40 a month for the smartphone fee since you are still under contract for a previously subsidized device. Your rate wouldn't drop to $25 until that contract is completed.
