Today the Wall Street Journal reports that AT&T is going to follow Verizon Wireless' footsteps by nearly doubling its early termination fees. Starting June 1, smartphones and laptops will carry a fee of $325 (up from $175). The smartphone ETF will fall by $10 for each month a customer stays in his/her contract. Feature phones will come with an ETF of $150 (down from $175). The feature phone ETF will fall by $4 for each month a customer stays in his/her contract. The changes will only apply to new contracts signed June 1 or later, and won't apply to existing contracts. AT&T calls the changes a "fair approach." The changes go into effect weeks before the next version of the iPhone is expected to go on sale. AT&T insisted the fee has "nothing to do with the iPhone or any other device."
