If you have a good case, I think it is worth calling and talking to a class action attorney to review the case, including the contract(s) that you signed. He/she will let you know if they will take the case, and if they do, they will pay for all costs and fees up front, and you have a chance of getting not only your damages in the suit, but what is called an incentive fee award for acting as a named plaintiff -- which could be thousands of dollars. If they dont take the case, they should explain why, and give you a better idea if it is worth it for you to pay to bring a small claims yourself. Alot of times the contract that you sign will supersede any oral statements made, making your case very difficult, so that contract has to be reviewed. Also, alot of times the contracts state that you cannot file a lawsuit, or a class-action, and any claims must be litigated through arbitration. Although, most of the times there will be exceptions for small claims. So you may have no choice but to arbitrate or bring a small claim based on what the contract says.
Being in the military myself something doesn't sound right about what they are doing. Has anyone asked jag about this. If you have a copy of your agreement I would be happ to review it. Generally we can file a dtpa action against them for unconscionable conduct which provides for attorneys fees. Please give me a call to discuss.

As a civilian legal panelist for Camp Pendleton in San Diego, California, I have great admiration and respect for all military personnel. Having said that, after reading your question, I did a Google search on Vivint and it appears there are a considerable number of people with Vivint complaints. I would be happy to review your contract for Free to see if there is even an obscure way to easily get out of this contract. At that point, I will be in a position to better advise you as to which Court is the best for you and your situation.
All the best,
