How To Break Your Cingular Contract Without Paying Termination Fee

If you use Cingular as your cellular service provider, I have bad news and good news. First, your per text message charge is going to go up from .10 per message to .15 per message. The good news? Because this change constitutes a change in their service, you may be able to get out of your current contract without paying any termination fees! The new charge will hit customers on Januay 21, 2007, and you will have 30 days from that date to terminate your contract with Cingular.
