Gadget Corner: Transfer your Call

Resellular will save you money

Sometimes it pays to read the fine print. recently launched its online service that takes advantage of a little-known clause in most cell phone contracts called the "contract transfer."

The service works by letting contract holders post a profile of their remaining cell phone contract on the website for a one-time fee of $8.99. The contract profile includes the carrier, monthly minutes, cost and whether or not the phone is included in the deal. If customers see a contract they like they can contact the contract holder and ask that the contract be transferred to their name.

Transferring contracts helps the contract holder get out of paying early termination fees, and the buyer out of paying for activation fees.

Many of the contracts available expire in a year or less, making them a viable alternative for people who do not want to be committed to a standard two-year plan.
