ETF if I'm leaving a family plan to open my own acct?

Quick question - and will try to keep it as simple as possible.


I'm currently still on my mom's family plan. I'm now looking to breakaway and open my own account with AT&T as I finally have settled into the real world with a career post graduation. However, my line's current contract on my mom's plan doesn't expire until October. 


Will my mom's account be charged an ETF by AT&T even if I sign right back up with my own, new account?

It would be best to just transfer the line from your mom to you. There will be no ETF, and all contracts will remain. It is the easiest and best option.

If you do not have a lot of credit history, or poor credit rating, you may have to pay a deposit to transfer the account to you.
