They stopped waiving it and even raised the fee by $4 this year -- another way to push you into the NEXT program which is the only way to avoid it.
They are gonna be so pissed when I move over to T-Mobile after the unlocks come out for 6+. Thanks for the subsidy att. Keep my $40 I got $360 of yours
If you switch to T-Mobile, as the previous poster plans to to do, T-Mobile will reimburse you for the full amount of the ETF (but not NEXT fees).Huh? That has nothing to do with the Activation Fee -- they charge Early Termination Fee's as well…
From AT&T Website:
AT&T Early Termination Fee:
Smartphone: $325 minus $10 for each full month you complete under the service commitment
So in order to receive your iPhone subsidized you have to renew the contract for 2 years -- which means if you leave early you get hit with the ETF fee [as well as paying the activation fee]
Will I be charged an activation fee for AT&T if I buy and use the unlocked TMobile model from the Apple Store?
