    This is from AT&T's site:

    Service Cancellation & Early Termination Fee
    Call the number on your invoice/receipt to cancel your service. You may cancel service within 30 days from the activation date to avoid the applicable early termination fee (the "Early Termination Fee" or "ETF"). If your Service Commitment includes the purchase of certain specified Equipment on or after June 1, 2010, the Early Termination Fee will be $325 minus $10 for each full month of your Service Commitment that you complete. (For a complete list of the specified Equipment, check Early Termination Fee Policy – Wireless from AT&T). Otherwise, your Early Termination Fee will be $150 minus $4 for each full month of your Service Commitment that you complete. You will be responsible for all applicable usage fees, prorated access charges, taxes, surcharges or other charges through the termination date. You will be responsible for all applicable usage fees, prorated access charges, taxes, surcharges, or other charges through the termination date. AT&T will refund your activation fee, if any, if service is terminated within 3 days of activation.

    You would pay $315 and get to keep the phone. The ETF is $325, but you get $10 off for each month of your contract that you have completed... so you do get the $10 deducted from the ETF... and you get to keep the phone... so you would have to sell the phone for $514 to break even on the 16GB iPhone and $614 on the 32GB iPhone.

    If anyone is able to, pay the full price for the phone and you aren't held to an ETF. Two year contract still applies of course.

    I think they will also charge you the difference in the discounted price and full price of the phone also on top of the etf

    I thought the etf was the difference? They get the rest of their money from the contract.

    Just to be specific, you also would pay for the services used during the 31 days.

    No they don't, the EFT is it! The reason they raised the EFT was to insure they covered the cost of the subsidy.
