Submission + - Getting out of two-year cellphone contracts

An anonymous reader writes: The Star news online has an article on getting out of 2-year cell phone contracts.. It discusses attempts made by people to get out of contracts. "Pretending to be dead, however, does not work well as a way to break a contract. Sprint Nextel, Verizon and Cingular, for example, may ask for a death certificate. T-Mobile says it does not." It also discusses other "strategies" such as joining the military, moving to a roaming location and so on. Any slashdot readers have interesting experiences on cancelling cell phone contracts, successes and failures?
