At Sonic we want you to get the great service you deserve. We are committed to ensuring you have a pleasant and enjoyable experience while you are our customer! With that, we understand that things can change. We are here to help you if you would like to change, cancel or move your service.
We always hate to lose a customer for any reason, but we completely understand needing to cancel services and we want to make that process as easy as possible for everyone involved. To cancel your service, you’ll need to call us at (707)-522-1000 between 8am-10pm any day, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org, or postal mail if needed. We can only cancel your service if you’re name is listed on the account, so be sure that whoever is contacting us to cancel service is listed on the account. If you contact us by email, make sure that the email is sent from an email we have on file and to include your name/address so that we can find your account. Written requests must contain your username, the current date, your reason for cancellation, and the account holder's signature. However, before you cancel your service, be sure to read the rest of this article, so that you don’t run into any issues.
(a.) Early Termination Fee
Before cancelling, see if an Early Termination Fee will apply. Upon sign up, Sonic Internet services requires a twelve (12) month service agreement. If you cancel your service before the agreement expires, you will be subject to an Early Termination Fee of one hundred forty-nine dollars ($149) or the remaining monthly charges, whichever is less. If you cancel within the first thirty (30) days, this will be waived. Alternatively, if you are cancelling because you are moving to a location where we do not offer service to, then you can send us proof of residence and we will reimburse you for the early termination fee. If you are unsure whether your service is in contract or not, just contact us and we can let you know.
(b.) Transferring Your Telephone Number
If you have a telephone number that you want to transfer to another provider, then you’ll want to wait until you have the new provider’s service all installed, then let us know so we can start the number porting process. You will need to start this process with us prior to cancelling your account as we need to keep the number active in order to transfer it. On average, the number port takes around 7-10 business days to complete and we will notify you of the date/time the number is scheduled to transfer over as well as the completion notification via email.
(c.) Thirty Day Notice
Please note that on some of our services, we do require a thirty-day notice prior to your desired cancellation date, so be sure to contact us as soon as possible because you will be charged for the last thirty days of service. Typically, this is only necessary for customers with our IP Broadband services, however it’s still nice to receive notice on other services so we can go over any details that may need to be addressed.
If you are renting Sonic provided equipment like one of our routers or analog telephone adapters, then after the cancellation is completed you will need to return the equipment to us. We offer printable shipping labels through UPS over e-mail or physical postal mail if requested. There is a shipping fee if Sonic provides the return labels.
If your service was required to have a 30-day notice (see above) the labels will be sent to your e-mail at the end of the 30 days. The same goes for a normal cancellation, labels will be sent after the cancellation process is complete.
If you don’t have a printer to print out the label, we can either send a physical copy via postal mail or you can print out the label at a UPS store before shipping it out. The e-mailed UPS labels also comes with a QR Code that can be scanned off your smart phone by a UPS employee (pre-pandemic).
Once shipping labels are sent you have 30 days to return equipment before being charged for non-returned equipment. If you have any problems with your return labels do not delay and contact us at (707)-522-1000 between 8am-10pm.
