    Some may remember I started a thread ranting about how AT&T charged me ifor a second month of service in advance, and flaming me for not reading a long ass contract which I'm sure none of you read either.

    Well I called AT&T and they changed my bill to remove the second month of service and cancelled my contract with the $315 ETF (before gov't employee discount), no questions asked.

    FOOLS.

    As I recall, several of us (including me) said if you wanted to cancel your contract, they would credit you for the 2nd month of service... like what just happened to you.

    So you didn't read the contract you signed and you got out of it by paying the ETF? Yup, AT&T are a bunch of idiots...

    No one said i could cancel the 2nd month, Also they already produced a bill with 2 months of service, which I got them to change, the ETF has nothing to do with it.

    Btw first smartass to say something smart like "cool story, bro" gets a brownie!

    I think he meant cancel the contract that has the $315 ETF, because you don't pay the ETF if you cancel within 30 days.

    But I don't understand the OP, so I'll just give him a taste of his own medicine:

    G'd SON!

    Since they charge one month in advance, it makes perfect sense that they'd cancel the 2nd month if you cancel the contract within 30 days. No need to call anyone a fool if you use a bit of logic.

    Is this the well understood premise where you are prorated for service charges when you sign a contract mid-period?

    Now that they canceled your contract can we cancel this thread. Pointless. Enjoy your ETF.

    Do you all understand that if you cancel within the first 30 days you don't get charged an ETF, but are required to return the iPhone? No? I thought not.

    You care what other people think on this forum enough to post saying they were wrong?

    Sorry you just made yourself look like a much bigger fool than anyone else.

    What? I think most of us understand that the ETF is there to cover the cost of the subsidized portion of the phone. If they are going to not charge a person who just bought a $499 (or whatever it costs) phone for $199 the ETF then they will want the phone back - else they just lost $300.
