Any recent changes to AT&T to warrant ETF waiver?

    Want to get out of this AT&T crap. If I cannot find a way to get out of the ETF, I will sell the 4S to cover it. Not ideal, as I would rather use that money to get a 32GB iPod Touch, but oh well.

    So, any recent changes to the contract? Maybe... Throttling? Think that counts?

    Try This:

    (1) Stream NetFlix via 3G 24-hours per day.

    (2) AT&T should cancel your contract and waive ETF.

    (3) Keep your cell phone that AT&T helped you to pay for and use Skype instead.

    There was the new 3GB limit thing last week, so maybe, but I'm not sure.

    True. It would only work if you have an unlimited plan.

    Good point. Can still be worth a try, though. :eek:

    NOT even then as 1 they never promised a speed and it does not negatively effect you.

    Try and find a Tmobile or other gsm tower in an area that AT&T doesn't have service (only roaming agreements). Use 50% or more of your minutes while roaming from 3 consecutive months. That should take care of it. I think you can also call AT&T and have tem change the carrier logo, so that it shows when your roaming on domestic carriers. I'm not positive of that though.

    Also, I think I read on some other post a few weeks ago that a guy successfully cancelled without paying the ETF.

    He had to call about 4-5 times until he got a nice rep willing to do it.

    I'll try to find the thread.

    Speed wasn't the issue as much as data consumption.
