    Default best way to get out of term fees

    Looking to switch networks. IN hawaii the coverage says its great on a map but its really not. Dropped calls on both the phones. iPhone and Galaxy S2. My friend on the other hand has Verizon (razr and iPhone) and never drops calls and it getting blazing 4G speeds.

    What's the best way to end the contract without paying the fees or even a way to make them smaller.

    Call after ever network issue.
    After a month request leaving because they have breached the contact by not giving you service.
    Also, if you have CarrierIQ,... Request leaving do to privacy issues.
    If that doesn't work, send them $10/mo toward the ETF & call it a day.

    Good ideas. How do I know if I have carrier IQ?

    I was in a ATT store the other day and heard a agent talking to someone about how if you roam too much ATT will cancel your contract since it will cost them too much. Not sure if its possible to roam where you are but that is a option to get out of a contract without paying a etf.

    Also, ETF shrinks each month you are in contract.

    I am in the exact same boat. Same phones even!
    Don't give in... The contract is only effective if they can provide you a service in return.
    I am trying a MicroCell and if that does not work, I'm bailing out.
    I agree to call in every time you get problems, and also call on engineers to come out and do a site survey. Be persistent!

    This is try among all carriers. There is an unknown % rate of calls on network vs off network (roaming), and once you reach the threshold of roaming more than they allow, you will be notified.

    Do take caution with this route. At the first notification, be sure to port out, or they will simply just shut your line down on the date given within the notification. You can't port a number that's not active.


    I'm sure there are some 'aps' out there to force roam. That would be a start.

    But again, proceed with caution.

    I was able to leave AT&T because of this.
    You have a contract, they offer you CELLULAR SERVICE.
    If you don't get your service, they have breached the contract.
    Try not to come off as such a tool the next time you quote one of my replies, thanks...

    I stumbled upon this method as well to get out of my contract with Verizon! I hope it was a good choice to go to at&t...
