Call AT&T and ask?

I contacted them because I get awful service, said I was going to cancel and was denied. They spit in my face also , they even quoted that id have to pay a $240 cancellation fee to go to verizon.

Here you go if you want to see what they said to me:

Dear David,

Thank you for contacting AT&T about your wireless service. My name is Faisal
Ibrahim and I am more than happy to assist you today with your inquiry regarding
a free MicroCell.

I apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused. AT&T's 3G MicroCell is
designed for the very small percentage of our customers who have wireless voice
coverage challenges inside their home. While the product is now available to
customers nationwide, we are conducting very limited trials on the most
effective way to introduce this product to customers for whom it was designed.
Unfortunately, we are unable to offer you a free MicroCell at this time.

You can purchase a MicroCell at a company owned and operated store location for
$199.99. You may also be eligible for a $100.00 mail-in rebate if you add the
$19.99 unlimited domestic voice feature. This mail-in rebate offer is for a
limited time only. You can find your nearest company store at the following

o New Activations or Upgrades - An instant rebate will be applied on any new
account activation or upgrade with a $39.99 or higher rate plan Monthly
Recurring Charge and the 3G MicroCell with an Unlimited MicroCell Calling
The following is required to purchase an AT&T 3G MicroCell:
o AT&T 3G device (2G devices are not compatible).
o AT&T postpaid wireless service of $29.99 or higher ($39.99 postpaid MRC is
required if the customer requests the $19.99 unlimited calling feature).
o Broadband service: DSL, U-verse or cable.
Note: Downstream speed of 1.5Mbps and upstream speed of 256Kbps are recommended
for best performance (satellite broadband is not compatible).
o The AT&T 3G MicroCell must be located within available markets to ensure
the device will be operated in a licensed AT&T wireless and E911 footprint
supported by 3G MicroCell infrastructure.
o Customers will not be able to purchase an AT&T 3G MicroCell for use outside
the select available markets (check for availability).

I am sorry to hear that you are interested in canceling your service. I
understand the urgency of resolving this quickly for you and I will be happy to
assist you with the information needed to complete your request.

After reviewing your account, I show that your line ending in xxxx is under
commitment until 07/01/2012 with a current early termination fee of $245.00.
This fee will decline by $10.00 for each month of the contract that is
satisfied. For future reference, you can also view your contract details from
your myWireless account by going to the My Profile section under My Account on
the orange bar at the top of the page. If you have multiple phones on your
account, select the appropriate user or phone number from the user selection
window to view the User Information.

If you have a need to remove a line from your account, there are a few other
options you have. If someone else may be interested in taking over that line,
you can go to the web address to authorize
someone to transfer a line or multiple lines to their own AT&T account under
their own name. The contract and phone number would go with them, so there would
be no fee for you.

You are a valued customer and we would be truly sorry to lose your business. If
you have additional questions, concerns, please let us know. As we are unable to
process cancellations over email, if that is still your intention, please call
us and let us know. You can reach us by dialing 611 from your wireless device or
toll free at 1-800-331-0500.

I hope this information has been helpful. We are here to assist you and
appreciate having the opportunity to serve you. I encourage you to visit us at often to view your monthly account statements, make
payments and shop for new products and services. If you have additional concerns
or questions about this issue please reply to this email. If you need to contact
us again regarding a new issue please send us another email via the contact link
through your online account. You may also call us on your cell phone by dialing
611 or 800-331-0500. Thank you for choosing AT&T. We appreciate your business.

Might have something to do with how long you've been a customer...I've been with them since 2003.
