Even if he can't get out of the Cingular contract, I would think paying you your normal rates would cost less than $1200 to Cingular. Suggest that your unlimited service is still less expensive than overages. Mike Hammett wrote: I have a potential customer that wanted to try out my service.

The contract has the termination penalty written in it. For cell phones it is usually $150-$300. I don't know about data cards, but likely the same thing. Mike Hammett wrote: oh, I'm most certainly under $1200, even for a whole year. :-p Anyone have experience getting out of a bad Cingular

Our current cell contract is 50% of the remaining contract price. So if you have a $50/month contract with 12 months left, you would owe $300 to get out. Travis Microserv Peter R. wrote: The contract has the termination penalty written in it. For cell phones it is usually $150-$300. I don't
