    Take it to arbitration. If he pays for the last month's service by
    it's due date, there's no way in hell VZW would win it. This is one
    time where the "must arbitrate" clause pays off in the customer's
    favor. He won't even need a lawyer.

    His duty was to pay for a line of service with VZW for 24 months. As
    long as the 24th month is paid for, he's fulfilled his contract.
    Their claim of breech of contract (which is what their claim to the
    ETF would amount to) would have no merit, as VZW would have suffered
    no damages. Again, this all assumes all charges through that 24th
    month have been paid. Just because VZW decides to terminate your
    contract because their computer system is set up to make certain
    incorrect assumptions doesn't automatically put you in breech and
    subject to the ETF.
