My friend in India is getting the iPhone 3GS from the USA for something like for like $99. He'l be unlocking the phone for usage in India. I can't blame him since the iPhone prices are insane here (in India).
Now I know that AT&T requires you to pay $175 as contract termination fees if you want to migrate to other carriers. So my question is - is there any way to circumvent this? Or is it mandatory that you pay those fees, if you don't want AT&T?

Pretty sure that is about the only thing you can do. He'll probably just have to pay the money and get it over with.

The secound way that he can do this with is add it as another line to the plan it will cost you 10 dollers a month untill the contract is over, then switch the sim card and give it to someone that can use it.
