Beginning June 1, 2010, AT&T is making changes that will lower the early termination fee (ETF) for many customers who agree to new term commitments, and will increase it for others.
• Customers who are buying basic and quick messaging phones will have a lower ETF of $150, reduced by $4 for each month during the balance of the service agreement.
• Customers who purchase a more advanced, higher-end device, including Netbooks and Smartphones, will have an ETF of $325, reduced by $10 for each month during the balance of the service agreement.
Current AT&T wireless customers who are within their existing service agreement or have an existing enterprise service agreement will see no change to their current terms
In December, Sprint customers were notified of material changes to their contract beginning January 1, 2010. Because Sprint is implementing a new fee for its customers, some Sprint customers may be allowed to end their contract without an Early Termination Fee (ETF) if requested by January 31, 2010.
This is a great opportunity for customers not happy with Sprint to port out their numbers from Sprint.
