If you don't have an installment plan

You'll have to pay an Early Termination Fee (ETF) if you cancel before the end of your service commitment. We prorate your ETF for each full month you complete. Find out how to estimate your ETF if it applies.

If you activated a device within the last 14 days

  • You can find out how to return your device and cancel service on the AT&T Wireless Return Policy page.
  • If you placed an online order, you don’t have to pay a restocking fee for returns that fall under the 14-day return policy. Did you pick up an online order in the store? Go to one of our stores to have the restocking fee waived. Fee waiver is subject to change.
