How do I cancel my AT&T services?

A simple 4 step guide for solving this common AT&T problem quickly and effectively by GetHuman

Before you get started, be sure you have: Name on the account, Billing address
(Note: If you are looking to cancel your service, know that AT&T has a Early Termination Fee (ETF) that is almost unavoidable. In order to avoid the fee, you should target the end of a billing cycle as you will still be paying for the remaining time until the end of the contract or pay period. This cannot be done online as this can only be done on the phone.) Step 1: AT&T doesn't let you cancel your service on their website. Unfortunately you'll need to call them.
Step 2: Be sure you have the correct information available to give to the representative to help make the process easier. This may mean having: Your account number Your telephone number Your social security number
Step 3: Try calling them on the phone. Below is a link to our best Phone Number -
Step 4: You should be all set and shouldn't have anything left to do! Nice!
