If you have signed a 3 year cell phone contract in recent times, or not so recent times, as of June 3, 2015 you will be able to cancel it without penalty, regardless of how much subsidy is left and regardless of when it was signed.  You can walk away from your contract and not pay subsidy or cancellation fees (of course fees remaining for cell phone services rendered still apply).
