    What are the key words to make it stop???

    I hate my existing at&t wireless and plan on going to a sweet verizon plan, but i'm still under contract. The service sucks, is this enough? /forums/images/graemlins/confused.gif

    I believe unless they have a "satisfaction guaranteed" clause, you're stuck. You *might* (read: very, very minimal chance) be able to get your new potential carrier to pay the penalities for you to get out of your current contract. How many mths do you have left on the contract?

    One person I know got out of the contract without penalty because she could not use the phone consistently in the area she bought it for. She had to call customer service daily for about 2 weeks before they let her out.

    driney's got it. bug the hell out of them and tell them there is no service and the calls are being droped. they'll probably get you a new phone but keep doing the same. then ask for money back or cancel.

    You probably got a early termination fee in your contract. Check it out and do the math. I got $7000 at&t cell phone bill from 96' or 97' can't remember. Every once in awhile a credit place sends me a bill for it. Crazy creditors, they'll never learn. /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif
