    Old post by an account that's closed who only had 2 posts in this thread. I'd let it go.

    Really this thread didn't even need to be revived a new thread would have been fine.

    With DirecTV, you pay ahead of time for your service. So if you cancel 15 days into your billing cycle, you would end up getting a refund back for the other 15 days.

    The last time I suspended, the pro-rated month sat as a credit on my acct. I don't think they actually refund the money back unless you cancel, and that actually makes the most sense. If a partial months credit is going to create a financial hardship, truthfully they should have cancelled their D* service before now.

    There were several debits and credits on the final bill, but I'm pretty sure there was a charge or credit for part of a month in there.

    I was paying more attention to the ETF, which I had expected to be $180; instead it was $160.

    sorry for bringing up an old thread but i just wanted to get answers from the people that actually have done this in the past like the thread said. but i did call today to cancel and i am being charged $20 for the last month that i didn't fulfill and a prorated rate for disconnecting the middle of the billing cycle. so all in all, i saved a few bucks, which is always good. thanks for all that replied.

    In today's economy, sometimes bad things happen to people without any warning. Last month it might not have been a problem, but maybe it is now. No need to be snarky and condescending.

    Besides, if I were in that situation, I'd rather see the money in my pocket than in Directv's pocket.
