Unfortunately, AT&T (or any other cell provider) does not guarantee service everywhere. If you moved to an area that is not serviced well by AT&T, your only choice is to pay the Early Termination Fee and go with another provider.
Your only other option is a microcell, but I don't think that you will get one of those for free either.

[Inappropriate content removed] ...consider that the pro-rated ETF is AT&T's way to recoup losses by giving you a phone at a steep discount. You still own the phone and could sell it to recoup some of that ETF.

Before picking another provider, be sure to carefully study the coverage maps.

A MicroCell may be a worthwhile investment if AT&T has good coverage in other areas you frequent.  Maybe a generous rep will offer you a free MicroCell to get you to stick with AT&T.

Call CS. See what they will do for you.

AT&T's 3G Microcell is your only option. Otherwise, it may be time to say goodbye to AT&T...
