    Early Termination Fees?

    Advertisements



    Has anyone had the "pleasure" of canceling their cell phone service here in the states because they do not get reception on the island? Last time I was in an AT&T store, the salesman said that if I can prove that I live in a region that does not provide service, I can get out of my contract, without any issues. I was talking to a friend that went through a similar thing state side and the company he was with said they had to send someone out to his location to determine that he would not receive service. Only then was he able to get out of his contract. I highly doubt that they will send anyone out to Dominica, so I'm not sure how that would work, other then me proving that I am living there. I will talk to AT&T soon and give you an update, but I was wondering if anyone has had experience with this themselves. How'd the process work?

    Take a look at the coverage map on their web site. It seems like they do provide coverage in Dominica. However, it seems ridiculous that they would have a policy that mandates someone to physically check for coverage. lol

    I went to the AT&T website and looked at the coverage maps like you suggested. They don't have coverage in Dominica under my plan. In order to use my phone their I would have to be on roaming and a call back home would end up being as much as a half months rent! I'm planning on going in to a store tomorrow on my day off and getting a more definitive answer. I may even go to a few different stores, just to make sure I get the same story!

    Thanks for your help!

    You can usually suspend the line. I did that for verizon, pay like $10/mo to keep the line.

    Are you interested in signing with another carrier? Tmobile is willing to pay off your termination fees, if you sign up with them. I haven't done this personally, but you can look at the following thread for people who have done it recently.
