I may be moving to an area that the coverage map shows "2g Over A Partner Network". Specifically its Clovis, New Mexico 88101. I called and asked if I could cancel without the ETF and the answer was no and then "you could get a microcell!". Which I see no point of a microcell, i use my cell phone away from my home not really while Im at home. Because we have 2 lines the ETF i think total will be around $500. I have read on the forum if you are "roaming" then keep using your phone until AT&T drops you. Is there a quicker way around it though, having 4g service would be beneficial for work and verizon offers it there. Also if I can get out of it before I move then that means I can use my current employers discount
Thanks for any suggestions.

Unfortunately I do not think you can get around the ETF. And yes, AT&T will cancel (at their will) your service if you use the majority of services in roaming areas (which you would be doing). You'll have to just fork over the ETF fees and then start with verizon in they offer LTE in that area. However, for every month you have completed your contract, your ETF will be reduced by I *think* $15?

If you do stick with ATT and use the microcell, that would mean that you would only be able to use the handsets within the range of the microcell.
As for 2g over partner network, it would not be roaming, just means that your data would be super slow, and you would be dependent on wifi networks.
