An early termination fee (ETF) applies if you:
- Agree to a contract for wireless service, also known as a service commitment, at the time of activation or upgrade.
- Cancel service before completing the term period.
These contracts often apply when you purchase a discounted device in exchange for agreeing to the service commitment. The type of device you purchase determines the final ETF amount.
|New or AT&T Certified Like-New device||Early termination fee|
|Smartphone with data service||$325 minus $10 for each full month of completed service commitment |
|Basic phone, tablet, mobile hotspot, AT&T Wireless Internet, or other connected device ||$150 minus $4 for each full month of completed service commitment |
Example: You purchased a tablet with a 2-year term service commitment but canceled service after 15 full months. The ETF would be $90 – or 150 minus $60 ($4 multiplied by 15 months of completed service). Heads up:
A service commitment or contract is different from an installment plan
