Leaving a family plan and possible ETF

Hi,

 

I am the holder of a family plan with three other members under it. One of our members would like to leave my plan and have his own family plan. I know I could use the online billing transferring service to transfer his number to his name. BUT, he is currenly under a 2y contract and the contract would not expire until this August. Will he be charged an ETF? Thanks in advnce for any helpful replay.

If you do a tobr the number is still active so there will be no etf for the line. One thing - if the person that is taking control of the account has little or no credit they might be required to place a 1 year deposit on the new account. Another point is there is a grandfathered data plan on the line, it will be removed.

While it can be handled over the phone or online it might be better for you both to go to a corporate store.

For information on ETF's please visit here. Wingrider is correct, a transfer of billing responsibility would not leave you with an ETF.
