(Even though I have never heard of a company requesting a phone back.) I do know if you break the contract then there is a minimal fee for canceling services early. what that is will depend on the carrier and how long you have left for the contract.
I hope this helps and again welcome to the forums
Thanks for the reply, I appreciate it.
I just want to clarify, the way I described the differences between a contract and buying a phone then paying for a monthly sim, is that all accurate? As in, it would work out cheaper to go contract overall?
