You can terminate your contract and pay an early termination fee, but you will lose your phone number and have to start all over again with a brand new 2 year contract.

I just did an early by calling and asking, but I was only 8 months from eligible on that line, plus I had one line eligible for upgrade. Doesn't hurt to call them and ask. Just don't ask at the stores, they can't really do much. Call customer service and just be polite about it.Arguing with an ***** is like playing chess with a pigeon.
You could be the greatest player in the world, but the pigeon will still knock over all the pieces, s--t on the board and strut around triumphantly-Tomtom6 on NcSportbikes.com

I called a year ago to cancel 1 year into my contract, and they gave me a new phone at subsidized price. It all depends how adamant you are about leaving. Honestly, I'm 13 months in now, and going to call them again and just matter of factly tell them I'm going to a WP8 phone, and my two options are them selling me a 920 at subsidized price for another two years, or I'll just pay the $215 ETF and leave for a cheaper and unlimited plan with TMO, who is also currently giving $50 for switching (further offsetting the ETF). The reality is I hold AT&T service offer at a lower value, and they need to do more for my business. Since its not a bluff on my part, there's really nothing for me to lose. I've actually already sold my GS2, so I'm committed.
