When you accept a $0 or otherwise deep-discounted, carrier-subsidized device, it comes with a side of legal agreement. Carriers can get a little punitive when you say you want to leave. Kind of like a jilted lover, but perhaps without those early days’ good memories to fall back on.
If you leave a mobile contract, you’re probably on the hook for an early termination fee (ETF). The cost depends on which carrier you’re with and on how long is left in your contract. ETFs can be as high as $350 for a single line.
As of right now and until January 5, 2015, we’re doubling our ETF relief offer. So, our offer to pay 25% of your early termination fee up to $75 is now our offer to pay 50% of your early termination fee up to $150. Other than the fact that we’re doubling down on the offer, nothing changes. If you’re bringing the family over and you’ve got multiple contracts and therefore, multiple ETFs, we’ve got you covered there too.
Want in? Good call. The details and steps are clearly outlined on the Ting ETF relief page.
Just in case you aren’t clear, this is the sign we alluded to in the opening paragraph of this post.
