Well, there's no real downside to the tab, you can cancel at any time, and you'll just be on hook for the part of the phone that you didn't pay in full at the start.

However, you should be able to to buy phones straight-up anyway - you probably went to a dealership which gets more kickbacks for signing up people on tabs than they do for selling phones, you shouldn't have this problem at a corporate location.
