AT&T Increases iPhone Early Termination Fee to $325

AT&T has announced the increase of their Early Termination Fee for customers who want to opt out of their smartphone contract.

For customers who enter into new two-year service agreements in connection with the purchase of our more advanced, higher end devices, including netbooks and smartphones, the ETF will increase to $325, and be reduced by $10 for each month that you remain with us as a customer during the balance of your two-year service agreement. After that, the ETF will no longer apply.

This latest move has added fuel to the rumor that Verizon could get the iPhone 4G as early as this fall. Increasing the ETF for iPhone owners will make it more difficult for customers to switch to Verizon.

It just makes me crazy how in these economic times and very poor Public Relations that companies have that they keep finding ways to alienate customers and piss people off. When the iphone becomes more provider available i am gone and i will pay them bitches with pennies....

This REALLY sucks! WTF!, i wonder what's on their mind, they must think, "ok, this dumb a$$ fell for the candy (iPhone) now, let's enslave him for two years, so that when he finds out someone else offers the iPhone with better service (and hopefully lower price), they won't leave us" ,like someone else said, keeping customer by force instead of keeping them happy, i underestand they have to get the subsidy back, but damn, i think $350 is way more than that!, and then there is that other rummors going around about tiered data service?, and by the way whatever happened to tethering? damn them...
