People often come to our site looking for ways to get out of their contracts without fees, get an upgrade early, or remove a required data plan. It’s become very common as of late, we’re sure in part because of the economy. Still, there are always people out there trying to find a way around the rules, justified or not. Let us address these, shall we?
The writers and editors of PhoneCan are asked one question more than any other: how do I get out of my contract without paying a fee?
Many carriers have Early Termination Fees (ETF) built into their contracts. This is, by far, one of the biggest reasons why people don’t like signing contracts (even though the overwhelming majority do). But most people don’t run into this bill killer unless they have an emergency or immediate need to cancel or transfer service. When they do, though, they tend to feel like their service provider is raking them over the coals.
We’ll take a quick look at Early Termination Fees, talk about your options, then reveal the truth about trying to get out of your contract without paying a fee.
