AT&T is quietly hiking early termination fees for smartphones to keep customers onboard. As of June 1st, new or renewing customers using a BlackBerry, iPhone or other high-end device will pay as much $325 to leave early, or almost twice the $175 it charges today. The fee is prorated and will drop by $10 for every month the subscription continues but could still leave customers paying $95 to leave even with a month left in the contract.

Just figured you guys may want to know.
