As you've probably heard, Verizon is about to start a huge BlackBerry sale. This sale will include some exceptional deals which, Verizon fears, are ripe for exploitation. In order to prevent customers from cancelling their line and selling their new phone on ebay for a profit, Big Red is about to hike their cancellation fee. Boy Genius has come across proof that Verizon will soon up their cancellation fee for 'advanced devices' from $175 to $350.

That's certainly one way to discourage that sort of behavior. With a penalty that steep, I can't imagine any way to profit off of flipping Verizon smartphones. On the plus side, it doesn't start until November 15th. If you're the sort of unscrupulous cad who likes to take advantage of poor, defenseless mobile carriers, you still have a few more days.
