Starting October 7, customers who purchase new devices from AT&T will have only 14 days to return them without incurring any penalties. Consumers who purchase devices before October 7 have 30 days to return them. "AT&T has updated its device return policy. Consumer customers will have 14 days to return a device for any reason and cancel service without paying an Early Termination Fee," said AT&T to Phone Scoop in an email. "While this begins on October 7, AT&T customers will continue to have the option to update their voice and data plans at any time." This policy change won't affect select AT&T business customers, who will still have 30 days to return their devices and cancel their service.

Its just like banking always looking to make money some way or another. Especially now that everyone has a smartphone and no one pays for text anymore or phone calls. Nothing is free and if it is today well it wont be for long.
