    you have to prove that the cost effected you considerably in some way....in other words, expect to fight very, very hard with AT&T.

    If this is so I am betting that the fees have not changed on 99.9% of the accounts!

    AT&T is not stupid and have plugged most the holes for you getting out of contract! Dropping dead is the best method!:eek:

    I believe that it works if the fees increased and they didn't directly tell you about it then you have a certain time period within which you can cancel your contract for no fee. (I read that this is how it works in Canada, not completely sure about the states)

    This idea went pretty viral a while ago because of this video. Most support reps are on to it and will stand firm against it. Expect to call many many times if you want to find someone who will let you off with this.

    Why are you canceling out of so many contracts?
    What is the advantage?

    Unless you're giving up cell service I don't see why anyone would need to drop out multiple times with carriers.

    Also, if you do void a contract, say with AT&T, do they allow you to rejoin down the road?

    You honestly think now of all times that AT&T will just cave in? God forbid they read the news or not be able to check what phone you have. You are naive.

    One of my friend's tried this to get out of their Verizon contract a few months ago, and Verizon fought with her tooth and nail. It turns out they had actually added a line or something in the statement about the increase, and had something posted somewhere on their website about it as well. I really think it depends on who you talk to over there. Verizon ended up setting with her for I think only have of the ETF. But still, I wouldn't say it was a slam dunk.

    This is interesting. My FUSC fee went up from $0.39 to $0.47 on two lines and from $2.41 to $2.94 on my last line line. My bill went up $0.69.

    This is from last month's to this month's bill.

    You are making a comparison. Last I checked T-mobile isn't the same as AT&T.

    Really? You signed up for this Verizon fangirl? Just to start a flame war on something that doesn't work as that fee is something the government lets AT&T change on a monthly basis? Really?
