AT&T has the S3 refurb for free. Requires a 10$ a month fee for the sim and additional line, but the ETF is only 150$.

What about the $45 for activation fees?

Also the $10 for first month is adding line to existing plan. For new plan its $40 bucks.

On my account the activation fee is waived. If you have to pay it then it makes the deal just decent, not slick.

I'm not going to say this is a good deal or not but are you sure that the ETF is the only thing you would pay if you canceled? The way I read the T&Cs:

Installment Plans: Requires 20-month 0% APR installment agreement. Tax due at sale. Credit: Well-qualified credit is required for an installment plan on tablets and select eligible smart/connected devices. Service: Qualified monthly service required (voice and/or data based on device type). If service is canceled, remaining installment agreement balance is due. Examples: A device with a regular price of $299.99 will be $15 per month for 20 months. Activation or Upgrade Fee: $25. Limits: Purchase limit applies. General Service Terms: Subject to Wireless Customer Agreement (att.com/wca) or, for business/government customers, qualified wireless service agreement. Deposit: May be required per line. Restocking Fee: Up to $45. Other fees may apply. Other Monthly Charges Per Line: May include taxes and federal/state universal service charges, a Regulatory Cost Recovery Charge (up to $1.25), a gross receipts surcharge, an Administrative Fee, and other government assessments (including, without limitation, a Property Tax Allotment surcharge of $0.20 - $0.45 applied per Corporate Responsibility User's assigned number), which are not government required charges. Pricing, fees, and all terms subject to change or termination at any time without notice. Coverage and service not available everywhere. Other restrictions apply and may result in service termination.

So you may have ETF AND the remainder of the watch's installment plan balance. Have you checked to see if getting the watch starts off with a installment plan bundle or if it is discounted up front or via monthly credits?

The way I read this is there is no installment agreement for the watch as it's free, so there's "no remaining installment agreement balance" to pay.

I was thinking about doing this, and wondered if it'd work out like this.
