Also actions do speak louder then words. It shows me they are prepping for the possibility of losing current subscribers to another carrier. These fees would help mitigate some of those losses. They hope everyone upgrades their 3GS in June to the new 4G, extending their contract for another 2 years with this higher termination fee in place if sometime in a year the Iphone opens up to another carrier. I have upgraded each version of my iphone but this will most likely make me wait and see if there is any truth to a Verizon phone coming some time in the nearer future. For people happy with their ATT service I guess it won't matter but for me it does.
