    ATT has just continues to drop the ball and I'm going to switch very shortly. Does this thing need to be returned? They shipped it to me atleast two years ago

    It probably does. When you port out, call them up and ask for a return kit. If they are anything like Sprint they will send you one out, you put it in the envelope (or box, or whatever they send you) and then ship it back to them (they pay all the postage).

    That's exactly what I had to do when I ported out from Sprint. I requested a return kit, they sent it to me and I sent them back their Airave (femtocell/microcell).

    It's only free for as long as you use it. Stop using it and they charge you. At least Sprint does anyway. But I wouldn't be surprised if AT&T is the same.

    And there is really no need to keep it as it won't work with your new carrier.

    Kind of a strange idea, but you could always ask AT&T. I know that's just crazy talk.

    You mean the people who told me twice in two months that my plan included international calling but still screwed up my bill?

    Yes they'll bill you if it's not returned.

    What carrier are you switching to?

    I dont trust a word they say, which is the reason why I'm asking people here with personal experience. Thanks for your help.

    T-mobile. The international calling included along with a much smaller bill has me jumping ship after 8 years.

    What's the matter with you? You want the OP to ask the company they got the item from? That's nuts when you can ask on a rumor forum.
