    I'm leaving the US in two weeks. What if I bought an iPhone 3GS with a two year contract and unlocked it then left the states and removed the sim card from my device. What will AT&T do when i come back to the US??
    Should I pay the early termination fee or will AT&T sue me??

    Are you thinking of walking away from the contract and not paying? If that's the case you'll have a screwed up credit history and trouble getting a new contract. You'll also be on the hook for the months of non-payment and probably the ETF.

    I could be wrong but you're basically asking for advice on committing fraud (again if I'm understanding your thread). You want to get the rebated price of the phone but are unwilling to agree to the terms of the contract

    What the hell. This is a repost YOU MADE http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?t=735155S

    Did you not like the answer we gave there so you report in hopes of getting something better. You are commiting fraud and theft.

    Also your credit is going to get screwed and that will follow you internationally because those same data bases would be check for credit WORLD WIDE.

    It amazes me that some people think that just because they leave the USA that they can avoid paying their bills. I lived in Germany for 4 years and not once did I think that I could stop paying my US bills.

    You entered into a contract with AT&T.... Pay your bills!!!!


    :rolleyes:

    Should be fine. Why don't you go ahead and try it and let us know how it works out, ok?

    You are right.... I had a German credit card (VISA) and it was not tied to the USA and vice versa. Basically I walked in to get it and my credit rating was 0... Made it hard to get but they were willing to work with me. :)

    Do people who post things like this try to steal all of their electronics, or just their cell phones? :rolleyes:

    I want to borrow a million from a US bank. If I move outside the US, do I have to pay it back?
