I signed a 24-month commitment with AT&T on June 29, 2011, but the service sucks. I only get a bar or two in my house, can't send picture messages, and I only get EDGE...unless I drive 60+ miles.
Calls are CONSTANTLY dropped-even when I'm not at home.
There are two lines on the account, making the ETF $300. I'd much rather switch to verizon, but I have to pay $400 for two unlimited data lines (there's LTE here with verizon...and I LOVE reading online :). PLUS the ETF.
AT&T won't waive them and there's no 3G in sight.
HELP! How can I get out?

Is this a new property you moved to? Did they inform u of network coverage when u joined? Check your terms of service with at and t.. You may be able to get out of it if they don't actually cover your area

They do. My area is listed as "best". A rep tried to tell the other party that they had good service....well the rep didn't win, lol.
I actually found a loophole in the contract:
"If we increase the price of any services ... you may terminate this agreement without paying an early termination fee"
My bill cycle ends friday and AT&T increases/decreases "government taxes" every month (they're all over, $10-$3-$5-$8.6-$8.5).
So who defines "any services", you ask?
"Charges include, without limitation, airtime, roaming, recurring monthly service, administrative, and late payment charges; regulatory cost recovery and other subcharges; optional feature charges; toll, collect call and directory assistance charges; restoral and reactivation charges; or calls billed to your phone number; and applicable taxes and government fees; whether assessed directly upon you or upon AT&T."
I spoke with an AT&T Rep in the Cancellation team and she said that if my price increases, I may port my number. She said I would probably get a bill for ETF, however she said to just call in and have them waive the fees.
She also read and added a note to the account about my slower-than-dialup data, dropped calls, no picture messages and then she went on to say that if the government fees increase, then to waive the customers (my) early termination fee.

Etf is pro rated. So, if your contract started one and half years ago, there is not much etf left. On the other hand, good luck getting out a contract.
