    Default Early Termination Fee's

    So i am involved in an all out war with T-Mobile over the $200 early termination fee that they are charging me for leaving them (to go to AT&T for the iPhone).

    I've done some research and found that if they don't have a copy of your signed contract (a lot of the places do/used to get rid of them after some time) then you can complain that you weren't aware of it, and if you have to take matters further, you can file a complaint with the FCC. I am requesting a copy of my signed contract, but it seems as though they cant locate it which will be great for me.

    I KNEW i would have to pay it, and am willing to, however obviously want to keep $200 in my pocket (did you know we're in a FUCKING RECESSION!?!!).

    Does anyone have any experience with beating the system and getting out of your early termination fee?

    Does anyone work for a major carrier that could divulge some secrets?

    I know i can't be the only one that has, is, or will deal with this.

    kthnx

    I cannot fathom a more simple concept in language than the difference between a plural and a possessive.

    Doesn't T-Mobile have a 1 year contract? You couldn't wait 1 fucking year? Most others have 2 year contracts.

    Ah, well, I guess their 1 year thing is over. I had T-Mobile for one year, then switched to All-tel, then switched to my company (who paid the All-tel termination fees). I'm forcibly being switched to Verizon sometime next month. No fees for me.

    with verizon they lower the $175 term. fee by $5 a month for every month you complete of your contract. so if you are 12 months in on a 2 year contract and want to cancel then the fee you pay would be $60 off of $175, so $115. not sure if tmobile does something like that. at least it's a little cheaper.

    Verizon will also refund that fee if you decide to come back within 3 months. I went to sprint and had terrible service. Verizon wiped my bill clean and said welcome back.

    The termination fees to to pay for the "free" and "discounted" phones they gave you when you signed on since you're not paying it back by staying with them.

    I've dealt with this bullshit before. I had AT&T on a 2 year contract, and after the first year I began to question my plan and the service. I went in to change my plan and instead of continuing with the previous plan, the fuckers wanted to start it over from scratch! Suffacated ended up adding me to his Nextel account and I had my number transferred... I got a collection notice from AT&T afew weeks ago about that termination fee from almost 1 1/2 years ago...Poor them, seeing as bankruptcy beat them to it!
