And it worked against me! Not so much the activation fee as the raising my plan by 15 dollars a month to help subsidize the phone if I waited a couple of weeks and just re-upped the traditional way! So I caved to next because if I'm going to get screwed I might as well pay a little extra and get a new phone every yearThey 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.
Huh? That has nothing to do with the Activation Fee -- they charge Early Termination Fee's as wellThey 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]
Unless setting up service for the first time, no. You are paying full price for the phone. The activation fee is only when you set up new service. The upgrade fee is when you get a new phone on a two year contract.Will I be charged an activation fee for AT&T if I buy and use the unlocked TMobile model from the Apple Store?
