    I have a family plan (2 lines) with an additional line. If the primary account holder's contract is gone (the one paying $80 a month), but the other 2 lines have 1 year left until eligible for upgrade, could the primary person cancel the family plan without ETF?

    As far as I know, you still have to pay the termination fee.

    So all the lines (primary and secondary) have to be out of 2 year contract before I can cancel with no fee?

    The line that is out of contract can cancel without an ETF. I did this with my husbands plan. He was out of contract but I had just upgraded and he wasn't working at the time so to save money we cancelled just his line and made mine a single plan and we paid no fees of any type.

    You could just cancel your line and have one of the other lines become the primary for the FamilyTalk plan if the plan is for the other two lines to continue in the FamilyTalk plan. That would be the easiest and not impact the other lines ETF since they still have 1 yr left on their contracts.

    Each line has it's own contract and ETF. So worst case is that you split the FamilyTalk rate plan into 2 single rate plans when you drop your primary line.

    Yep. Your only other option would be to keep those two lines with AT&T with one of those lines becoming primary.

    There's no logic here. If a phone is out of contract then you cannot be charged an ETF.

    Since two secondary lines (per OP) are still under contract he'll have to pay ETF for each of those two lines.
